Today, it is too depressing to be on fb.
Do people not understand? Are we not learning from history?
God does not change. He is the same forever and always.
It saddens me to see friends being lead astray. Don't go to the world, it doesn't love you. Not like Jesus.
Did anyone you know die for your sins? Oh wait, that was Jesus, the only one who could.
Are we not appreciative? At the very least?
We are as filthy rags. Every one of us. We all make bad choices.
Yes, the world is run by a bunch of sinners. Churches are lead by a bunch of sinners. I am a sinner.
Praise God for redeeming us through His Son! What a wonderful Savior we have!
Sometimes, we don't want to think about our Savior. We want what we feel like wanting.
Not all is bad. We do need sleep, food, water, etc. to survive.
I'm talking lustful things. Too much food to where it controls us. Looking at porn. Being in wrongful relationships. The list could go on.
Have we not learned from Sodom and Gomorrah?
The Bible is very clear. God created man and woman, and His original plan was for one man and one woman to be married. The end.
Why are we questioning God? Challenging Him? Where is the respect for His ultimate authority?
I do not expect the world to understand. They do not want God.
But for those who call themselves children of God, to be standing with the world on this issue--this pains me so much.
Why do we have laws against stealing? Maybe someone can't help themselves and they need to do it. We should make that legal. Forget that God's against it.
He is also against adultery, and oh boy, is our country in a hot mess with that right now.
Have we no fear of God?
I think therein lies the ultimate reason of why. Why our country is heading into moral decline.
Thankfully, my hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness.
The world around me may fall, but God is my strength. The rock on which I stand.
His ways are good and pure. And while I personally fail on a daily basis, His love, kindness, mercy, grace, compassion--always there for me. I don't deserve it. At all.
My sins, I do not want to tell them all.
I do not want to judge others, because I know I am just as guilty before the King.
I am sad when those put in charge of the people fail us.
Not surprised though.
The spiritual battle is real, it always has been. We do not understand everything that goes on unseen.
So we pray. To the Almighty God, who has the ultimate power.
We chose to go against Him in the garden. The fellowship was broken then. Mankind could not fix that on their own, that's why we so desperately needed a Savior. Our lives depended on it.
How great our God is! To give the ultimate gift.
I have a son, two in fact. I can't imagine.
God did it for us. And even more unfathomable, He still created us, knowing we would make the choice.
He loves us, and so much wants us to be in fellowship with Him.
I desire for people to have the relationship I do with God, to know Him and talk to Him, and discover Him through the Bible.
He is truth and life. Nothing else, no one else, will satisfy like He does.
We were created with a God shaped hole, as one songwriter puts it. We crave Him. Only some don't know, so they keep searching for something to fill it, but it doesn't fit quite right.
The answer is Jesus.
