Recently while trying to find a few missing sheep we lost one of the dogs. They were all with us when we left that morning but when we got back to the pickup and trailer we were missing one. Well, we went back even though we were hungry and tired and started looking for that one missing dog. We searched hi and low till we finally found him.
That reminds me of something in the Bible. God loves us very much and does not give up on us even when friends, loved ones or family do. God will work till our very last breath trying to woe us to recognize Him and to be reconciled to Him. He wants us to realize our sin and our separation from Him, (1 Thessalonians 2:13-16). He also wants us to ask forgiveness, (Acts 11:18) and call upon and put our faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, (Matthew 12:21, Acts 15:19). One thing He will not do is force us to acknowledge Him or call upon Him. He sends special people our way, (Acts 13:47-49 &14:27 & 15:3&7) and even tries to get our attention through different events and things that happen to or around us.
God has provided the way that we can be reconciled to Him but it is up to us now. There will be no regrets if we call upon Him.
See you in Church next Sunday.
