John 1:10

“He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, yet the world did not know Him.” ~ John 1:10

How crazy is this? How do we get so lost? To the point that we don’t even recognize or know our creator. To the point where Jesus could walk right by us and we wouldn’t even know it. Sometimes I feel so distant from Him. Not because He is far away, because He isn’t. He will never leave or forsake us. Though I will put the blame on Him, the fault is mine. I make the choice to leave Him out of today. Which leads to leaving Him out of tomorrow. Before I know it I don’t feel Him at all. But He is still there, knocking at the door of my heart. And He will be there until I take my last breath. Then it will be too late. The last thing I will hear from my redeemer will be, “I never knew you; depart from me you worker of lawlessness.”

Who will I have to blame then? When the book of my life is opened and my deeds exposed. All the while the evidence of a loving Savior constantly pleading with me to turn, to repent from my evil ways. You all know those people. Those Jesus Freaks. You know those feelings. Those tugs at your heart saying, “Don’t take that road.” He is there, even now, speaking the truth to you. Stop ignoring Him. Follow His lead and accept His invitation to live a life of love rewarded by an eternity in God’s presence. He’s knocking, don’t miss out. Draw the line in the sand and declare, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
