This morning I was driving down our road when
I saw a small rabbit on the right side of the road.
He/she/it was on the pavement but almost off in
the weeds. Really safe enough. And if not content
there, it's nose was in the weeds at the side of the
road where it could easily go.
it had to turn and go the other way darting in
front of the truck. I tried to straddle it, but that
was not good enough. It didn't make it.
Are we any different????
We ignore signs and warnings.
We try to ignore God himself.
And dart right out into danger.
About me! It really does not matter.
But what does matter is that there is a God in heaven above. He created this world and gives us life and our breath.
But we have ignored him. We have gone our own way and done our own thing. This is called sin.
"everyone has sinned and is far away from God's saving presence." (3:23)
"For sin pays its wage - death; but God's free gift is eternal life in union with Christ Jesus our Lord." (6:23)
[That is the death of the soul - the real you. Thrown into the Devil's hell forever. But his gift is life forever with him in heaven.]
"If you confess that Jesus is Lord and believe that God raised him from death, you will be saved....As the scripture says,'Everyone who calls out to the Lord for help will be saved.'" (10:9,13)
God loves you enough that he came to earth and died for you. Turn to him and accept his gift of love for you.
