“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.”
We are born sinners, thanks to Adam’s disobedience.
The evidence is in our children. As the father of five, I have never had to teach my kids greed, pride, entitlement, lying to keep out of trouble, anger, etc.
They are born that way; no socialization needed.
What my wife and I find ourselves doing is correcting those behaviors over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over . . .
Our iniquities and sins have, from birth, separated us from God. So long as we remain in that state, God will not hear us. If you won’t believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, your prayers go unheard.
However, if you accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, God’s hand will always be within reach. He will always be there to comfort your when you need him. He will always hear you when you pray.
The God who created the universe and can destroy it with a whisper offered Himself as a sacrifice for your sins and now offers an unending line of support for you if you confess your sins and call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Christians often fail to take full advantage of this open communication, and we have unfettered access. We know I do not reach out to God often enough.
I cannot imagine being unsaved in 2020. I cannot imagine the fear and constant reminder of my own mortality with “no afterlife.”
Of course, there is an afterlife, but the non-Christians reading this REALLY do not want to consider the possibility that Hell is real.
The Lord can save you from it. He wants you to take His outstretched hand and speak to His open ears.
Will you talk to Him today?
