It seems that many people look around and see all kinds of problems like drugs and alcohol, and then they say “why won’t God do something about it?”. The problem isn’t God, it’s us. We were given the power of choice and the ability to choose our path. Just as the angels in Heaven were given a choice to serve God or not. Some did choose to and about a third of them didn’t want to and followed Lucifer in his rebellion against God.
When we make bad choices we are living in the same way. We are rebelling against His way of living because we want to do things our way. God created the entire universe. He created every atom and particle all the way up to the largest stars and galaxies so He can do ANYTHING! There isn’t anything that God can’t do except lie or go against one of His promises. Anything that would cause Him to be out of character, He won’t do. Other than that…He can do anything.
God loves us, He just doesn’t care for the sinful lives that we lead. Even if you are a Christian, you still sin every day. It may not be the same sinful things that you were doing before but thoughts and behaviors and words are not easily captured. We are forgiven but when you feel that you are being convicted of some thought or action that you did before you realized it, ask for His forgiveness and ask for the strength to resist the temptation of it the next time it comes around.
Jesus came to die for your sins and mine and He paid the price for all of our sins. He also conquered death so that we could live in eternity with Him when we accept Him as our Savior. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and you cannot come to the Father except through Him. Make sure of your eternal home before tomorrow because none of us are guaranteed to wake up in the morning.
