Set Me Free

If God, who is all powerful, is willing to send his son for our sake then why should it be so hard for us to sacrifice for him? Human nature can be awfully much in the way sometimes. But really, we say we love Him, and know He loves us but when it comes down to it we make it seem so very hard to spend only fifteen minutes a day with Him! Why are we trying to make time for the creator of time? Kind of ironic, huh? Can you imagine a marriage between a man and woman spent like that? It would be pitiful, and most likely end in divorce. Fortunately, God is not going to give up on us, but that is not reason to put Him off. He’s going wait, but He is ever so eager to have you. A friend of mine said something like this, “You don’t have to transform to accept Jesus. You just have to accept Him and he will transform you.” This statement holds such a truth. John Piper had some wise word to say, one of them being, “Sin is not small because it is not against a small sovereign.” We need God, and He wants us. He made a huge sacrifice for us, will we make even small sacrifices for Him? We cannot survive without Him. Are you willing to let your love for Him meet the demands of justice? It doesn’t take but a moment to see that we all need a savior, and there’s one waiting with arms wide open. Will you run into them, or run from them?
