My Musings – “The future ain’t what it used to be.” (Yogi Berra). It certainly isn’t. Hopelessly lost and separated from our Creator, with no hope for reconciliation by our own efforts. Facing an eternity apart from God in Hell. No Exit. His righteousness demanded it. That was our future.
Where there was no hope, God provided hope. Where there was no way, God provided a way. The possibility of being reunited with our Creator because He made it possible for us to be a new creation through the death, burial and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ. His grace satisfied His righteousness. The opportunity to spend eternity reunited with God in Heaven. This can be our future.
My Advice – Which future do we want? This should be an obvious choice. Yet so many stumble over it. Yes, Jesus is the only way, because His sacrifice was the only possible way to satisfy God’s righteousness. But whoever calls on His name will be saved. He’s calling us out of darkness. Will we respond?
