As Paul wrote, by the Holy Spirit, in Romans 1:16, “I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: First for the Jews, then for the Gentiles. In everything God created, He is revealed in it.”
Man is without excuse, God made it plain to the whole world in His creation. When you look upon what God has made, you can see God in it. The mark of God is on everything created by God. There is nothing made that God did not make. God’s mark is upon man; it’s even seen on you. God calls us to come to Him. It is mankind who refuses to give God the credit, honor and glory. Because of not respecting God as his creator, man gives God no respect as to who God is. In doing this, mankind becomes an enemy of God.
When will people in our nation see how blessed we are, how God has kept us even, even when we, as a nation, turned our backs on God? Yet because of His great grace and mercy, God continues to reach out to us. God does not count our sins or our shortcomings against us. God always hopes that we will turn to Him.
There will come a time when He will let go and allow us to have what we want. The truth is that what we really want is not good for us. What we really want takes us farther and farther from God, and God will give us up to our sinful desires. When we do not obey, respect and honor God, we put ourselves out of God’s protection.
When I look at the masses of people without God, it breaks my heart. There is a strong spirit of Satan holding the masses captive. Some of us have gone so far away, we can’t bring ourselves to believe God. Jesus Christ has won the victory, but it seems like people cannot make that return to the one whom so loved them. Jesus gave His own life for all mankind. Although God is powerful, He won’t make you or I love Him. Yet, God desires and cares for all mankind, everywhere. The offer goes out to all people, everywhere, 24/7.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” — Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)
