“He who is not with Me is against Me…” – Luke 11:23a
People often run back to faith when a crisis hits and in today’s volatile society, that can be a daily occurrence.
Whether it’s a devastating natural disaster, a terrorist attack, or mass shooting…many people seek comfort and protection from God. Well, I’ve got news for you. If your motivation for coming back to God is to escape danger, then you will be grossly disappointed. God does not promise that we’ll escape danger or even death. Whether it’s a terrorist attack or a heart attack, a plane crash or a car crash, we will all face death one day.
Instead, come to the Lord with a spirit of repentance that says, “Lord, I realize how much of my life has ignored Your will and focused on my own self-interests. God, I now come to You with a repentant spirit. I want to call on the forgiveness and salvation of Christ. I know it’s a dangerous world we live in, but Lord, I want to get things right with You from here on out. I want to do things Your way through the salvation of Christ and the teachings of scripture.”
Being ready for the hereafter is the best way to live for today. You will never be disappointed if you get right with God. He not only extends forgiveness, but promises an abundant, eternal life with Him both now and forever more.
So what’s it going to be? You only live once; how will you choose?
