Knocking at the door…….
Like most Americans I have been near a TV since the shooting and have heard the same curious question, over and over; Why did he do it?
I have the answer, but let me preface it by sharing something. I did not choose to write this blog, to share my faith and to extol our ultimate need for our Heavenly Father. Once I started to post blogs, immediately I was inspsired to share what is is written here. I sit at my computer and it simply comes to me, inspred by the Holy Spirit. There is nothing special about me, I simply, long ago, pledged my life to Christ and submitted to His will. It is His will that I hold up a candle in the darkness for the world to see. My candle is not seen by billions or millions of people, maybe not even thousands, but it is is seen and God speaks to people through it’s light. It’s not my light, it’s not my thoughts, I take no credit or want no praise, I want God’s will to be done. All glory should always go to Him.
TRUTH: Why ISIS, terrorism, murder, gangs, racial hatred, bombings of innocents, and all the other horrible things we experience everyday? Man is inherently evil. The secular humanists will tell you that man is basically good and that he can be fixed with the right abount of love, counseling and government programs. It hasn’t worked, you can’t change a heart with man’s efforts, only God can make us new creatures without the desire to serve evil. All you need to do to confirm these words is study history, man has committed acts of hate and damnation for centuries. You can believe this, or be a victim of the world’s fallen state.
THE ANSWER: We all must ask God to guide us, to help us be peace makers, to stop first the hate in us. We must reach out and love the lost, and heal the sick of spirit. We must steadfastly refuse to adopt the lies of the lost that there is no God, that we have no Hope! Life without hope is meaningless. God does not desire for even one to be lost, He loves His creation and wants it redeemed, but He will not force you to beleive and accept Him and His everlasting love. You must ask Him for forgiveness and to accept you into His family. If you do that with real repentence and faith in Him, He never says no!
KNOCKING AT THE DOOR: Jesus said, “I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears my voice and answwers, I will come in and be with him.” That knocking is happening right now, a new life, freedom from hate and destruction is no further away than your answer, “Yes Lord, please come i!”
Please answer the knock.
