Thoughts

I have heard a lot of reporting this week of people who think that the Rapture is going to occur tomorrow, 5/21/2011.  This coupled with the things that Pres Ob@ma has said about Israel, have really made me begin to think.  This may cost me some readers, but that is OK, this is what has been laid on my heart to share, and I am going to do it.

We live in a fallen world.  No doubts about that.  The wages of war and corruption surround us.  I am the first to admit that I don't keep and obey what God has instructed us in the Bible nearly as well as I should.  I do however, know that we have a loving and gracious God.  No matter our ways, no matter our sins, we are forgiven through the blood of Jesus Christ.  What an amazing gift we have been given.  Even in times when I feel that all hope is lost, as long as the sun rises and sets, as long as the seas have depth and the winds have breath, all is not lost.  As it says in Phil 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me", there is always a way. 

Sometimes, it is very difficult for me to listen to the news or the radio or sometimes even being out in public.  There is so much heart ache and grief and people desperately looking for answers to their problems.  I admit, sometimes I find myself looking too.  The real answer is not to be found in money, or time or any other modern day solution, the answer is the same as it always has been.  Christ.  One man, 100% human, 100% God, 100% the answer. 

I admit that I am not nearly as forthcoming in sharing my faith as I should be. But today that changes.  I don't know if the end of days is tomorrow or far past my lifetime.  I do, however, know that I want to see all of you there.  God is good people, he will help you, protect you and keep you, but you have to be willing to ask him into your heart, and you have to be willing to allow him to change you.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”
 5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
 6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you really know me, you will know[b] my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” (John 14: 1-7)

God is good, all the time.  If you haven't asked him to be your Saviour, you should.
