Life, as we know it, is very limited and has a tragic end. God made us, whether it is believed or not, and at our first breath..at the very first time we opened our eyes, we were LOST! The “SIN”ister minister will try to convince you that you are alright, just as you are, but this verse from the Bible says different:
“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” (Romans 3:23-24)
It states the problem and the solution. Sin nature is natural. Godly truth is totally hidden from everyone who fails to believe in Jesus Christ. Human intellect will refuse this truth and move us, blissfully, along the path to eternal destruction, but God, in His Mercy, provided propitiation in the form of sacrifice by His only Son. A sacrifice known to both He and His Son from conception. We, on the other hand, from conception, have no knowledge of what is in store for us on earth. There has come a time when we received a glimmer of the truth, but Sin is so attractive to the human, we moved right along in the world. Failure to accept the truth Paul wrote to the Church in Rome, is the determining factor in eternal life with God in Glory. Since we ALL are the “All”, and we naturally fall short of the glory, if you haven’t taken advantage of God’s provision, why not NOW?! It’s all laid out in book of Romans and it’s the absolute Truth!
And, that’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates. AMEN
