“Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”
I experienced something sad and pitiful in the early hours of this morning that inspired today’s post. Social media ehn, hmmm. We really need to be careful to guard our eye and ear gates o. not everything is entertainment as it were anymore. So I accidentally happened upon an instagram page of an atheist human being, and I felt deep sadness. How do I get such people to believe? I pondered for a long while till I fell asleep.
The thought of being lost and alone in this world makes me shudder. I can’t imagine what it would have been like if I didn’t know God, or worse, if I didn’t believe in Him. Some people actually suffer from the ignorance of who God is and how so dangerously-deep He loves them.
God’s love is so real for us that even while we were undeserving and buried in sin, He so graciously gave His beloved son Jesus as a bloody sacrifice. I repeat, we didn’t have to deserve it, there was no price we had to pay for the blood of Jesus to be shed. However, there is a price we have to pay for salvation.
I don’t take it for granted that I am born again. I still confess Jesus as my Lord and saviour. Each day I make a personal decision to be a Christian, it’s a concious effort I make because I love God. I know what He did for me over 2000 years ago (I don’t have to try to use my head to understand it), I love what He did, what He still does for me and what He will continually do for me. I love who I am with Him, and I can’t imagine my life without him.
So today I’m thankful for the amazing privilege to know Him and continue walking in the knowledge of Him.
And The Holy Spirit whispred to me, “Just keep telling the Good News of God’s Love.”
Oh my God, how refreshing it is, how freeing, what glorious liberty I have in You through salvation. That I know the Truth which has set me totally free. I would sing of Your Love forever, and continually tell of Your great mercy and grace. Thank You my Father!
