The Self-Destructive Road Away From God

Sometimes, we come head to head with a verse in the Bible that we without a doubt do not need to examine, averse that we wish wasn’t there. But we need to pay attention it, because it’s the fact. When children of God turn their backs on God, nothing may be performed approximately it.

Not 1000 oxen slaughtered to be sacrificed. Even Jesus’ blood that flowed on the go wasn’t spilled for those human beings. They had their hazard.

26If we surrender and turn our backs on all we’ve learned, all we’ve been given, all the truth we now know, we repudiate Christ’s sacrifice and are left on our personal to stand the Judgment…

This isn’t always mild tune and can you and I in no way stand in that line on the gates to heaven!

I’ve spoken approximately my Facebook friends earlier than. They have been part of the church; one changed into even a minister. Somewhere alongside What is truth the way the wheels in their faith got here off. They no longer believe.

But rather than walking away and transferring in a distinct route, they stand at the sidelines and criticize and giggle on the church behind their fingers. What a pity. Sometimes I get tears in my eyes and can’t consider that human beings can say and do what they say and do.

I can listen a few human beings ask why I do not unfriend them? Because I wish wholeheartedly that in the future they may hear or see one among my entries and that it’d lead them to assume once more. Maybe they may have a moment of comprehension and decide to like their first Truth once more.

But, human beings say, the verse does say that there’s no sacrifice in an effort to supply them access into heaven. This is wherein my naive, childlike religion kicks in – I accept as true with that that after someone will kneel before God, His love is huge enough and greater than enough to forgive that sinner too.

That’s why I will keep to live as an example of Jesus’ love. I continually try to appearance beyond their actions and to look the possibly insecure person hiding in the corner. I always wonder if they occasionally say as they lie on my own on their beds: “What if there sincerely is a God… “.

This concept drives me to strive even harder, due to the fact I may be the only ray of mild that shines God’s light in that man or woman’s darkish life. We ought to by no means prevent being God’s fingers and toes. We ought to never stop shining God’s light in the darkish global.

What a horrible information for any being on this planet to know what God’s judgement will be like: 27… And a amazing fierce judgment it is going to be!

How bad this is! May you and I, our families, friends and all of the people we have met by no means need to face that judgement.

Scripture
Hebrews 10:26-31

Reflection
Do you recognize humans who’ve grew to become their backs on God?
What can you do to expose God to them?
Who can you ask to help you?

Prayer
Our father, my coronary heart aches for the humans who’ve became their backs on You. May my example persuade them to exchange their minds. May my actions show your love. Maybe, just perhaps their minds can flip lower back to You… Amen.
