Wow, the pace of life is getting faster! People don’t seem to have time for one other any more. While everything is going our way, the pace is not so threatening; but when we fall into one of the pitfalls of life, it’s like sitting in the middle of a crowded highway in a stalled car. No one seems willing to busy themselves with the rescue of the distressed. A “Who cares?” attitude prevails.
But God Cares! Though the world has drastically changed, He is …the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (James 1:17b). He sees you in the hopelessness of the most serious predicament of life, and comes to your rescue.
What predicament? For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23). As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: (Romans 3:10). You and I are lost in sin. The Bible tells us that our sinfulness has earned us eternal death and separation from our loving Heavenly Father. For the wages of sin is death… (Romans 6:23a).
But listen to this: God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8). Yes, God loves sinners! He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to purchase our forgiveness through His death on the cross. He rose from the dead and has ascended back to Heaven to intercede for you as Savior and Lord.
How can you obtain this wonderful deliverance? But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: (John. 1:12). It’s that simple, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved (Acts 16:31).
No, this won’t supernaturally take all the bumps out of the road of life, but as a child of God you can always be assured that He is with you, that He has time to help, that HE CARES.
