Compared to the Jones

Had some quiet time this morning and was thinking about, “How come people don’t want to worship God (go to church and include him in our life?”

A lot of times people compare their selves to others, I’ve done that !! They don’t go to church, they don’t pray to God, they don’t read the Bible and they don’t abstain from this or that ( they don’t think about what is pleasing to God.)

Then I thought about this verse that says, “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.” (found in the Bible, Matthew 7:13)

We all have a free will to choose and God gave us a choice!! Everyone should see that the World is getting more corrupt and out of control. That is what happened in the time of Noah and God was patient with man, but he is also a just God. Noah warned the people to repent and join him in the Ark. But people laughed and mocked him and when the floods came on the earth it was too late for them.

God told Noah to make one door for the Ark and also the Bible says that, there is only one door “I am the door; whoever enters through me will be saved.” found in John 10;9

I once heard someone say; ” Do you know why the World is still herewith all the evil and rebellion going on ? It’s not because God is passive, he is proactive. It’s not because God is powerless, he is all powerful. The Lord is not being slow in doing what he promised- the way some people understand slowness. But God is being patient with you. He doesn’t want anyone to perish, but that all should reach repentance.”

God sent his son to earth to suffer and die for each and everyone of us. So that if we believe this and repent of our sins we can spend eternity with him!!
