Today I took a qualifying exam for the job I wanted. People kept telling me “Good luck”. Why rely on luck when you can rely on God? God is greater than luck. Sad this case may be, this is a good call for Christians- those who profess the Jesus Christ is their Lord and Savior, those who depend upon God- to share while we still have time. People need to know the Gospel, need to know the truth. That God is not a distant God. He listens to His people and answers their call (Jeremiah 29:12 Then shall ye call upon me and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.). We can depend on this God! This God wants a relationship with each and every one of us on a very personal, intimate level. This was how things were supposed to be- man and God communicating with each other directly. That is, until sin entered the world. And because of sin, our disobedience from our Maker, our God, the communication was severed, man was punished with death (Romans 5:12 Wherefore as by one man, sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.). Death in the spiritual sense. Death which means and eternal separation from God. Death which means eternal suffering. But because God so loved the world, so loved the people He made despite their disobedience, He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the debt which man owed. Jesus died on the cross for your sins, for my sins, for everyone’s sin. He has paid the price man cannot pay. So the question is, would you accept Jesus’ payment for your behalf? Would you acknowledge Jesus as you own personal Savior? (John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.)
Because this God hears the people He made, cares for the people He made. You can depend on this God.
