We long for God because we were created for Him, and when we honestly acknowledge this need, then we are ready to seek God. We must devote ourselves to finding Him, our most fervent hope being to come into His presence and enjoy His fellowship.
Obeying the Gospel
Each day's page from the book "Obeying the Gospel" delivered to you by email. Daily motivation to act on our faith.
Wonder of all wonders, God is willing to forgive us of our treason against His rightful rule over us. But His grace requires that we begin doing what we have not been doing: obey His will. He must become our Master, our Ruler . . . our LORD.
If we have not accepted the lordship of Christ before the day of judgment, it will be too late for an acknowledgement at that time to save us. In reality, Christ IS the Lord. But will we ACCEPT His lordship? That is what the gospel asks us to decide.
It was not merely by being humble that Jesus procured our salvation -- it was "by becoming obedient" (Philippians 2:8). We have learned nothing of Jesus Christ and His gospel if we have not learned the necessity of obedience (Hebrews 5:8,9).
There is nothing about any of us that is not known to God (Hebrews 4:12,13). What if God made known to the public everything He knows about us, even the "thoughts and intentions" of our hearts? Who among us would not be chastened and humbled?
