Where is God?

22 February 2014, 13:49

WHERE IS GOD?

-------------------
Why do you want to live and die without God? What has God done to you that you hate him so much? Why do you never think about God? Has God not been pleading with you? Has he not put his salvation to you? Has he not asked you to turn to him? Why do you refuse him?

It is a sad thing that the God who created all things that we enjoy – the God we owe everything to, including our very own lives, is the same God we neglect. Most people think of every person, except God. They have a place for everything else, but have no place in their heart for God. Some have been walking in this beautiful world, blessed with all that the eye could see – yet they have never given even a thought to the God who made all this. They receive daily from his hands, but have never even said ‘thank you LORD’ to the Provider of all things.

The truth is that God made you. Yes, he fashioned you and put every bone in its place – every vein and nerve. He is your Maker. You are just dust and you would crumble back to dust at this very moment if the LORD withdrew his preserving power. It is not an accident that you are different to animals. We would not be surprised if animals did not turn to God. But shall you also forget God? Strangely, animals have never rebelled against God. They are obedient to him. There are no sin-loving animals, but there are sinful people. You need God. You need Jesus. The time will come when God will ask you certain questions. You will be long dead by then, but you will have to answer him. You will be obliged to answer him. Sadly, it will too late to have a relationship with him through his son, Jesus Christ. It will be too late to seek Jesus.

“You must be born again.” – John 3: 7
