Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- January 3, 2011
“Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19:9-10
A Christ-less human condition is lost and in need of a Savior. An unsaved soul is in search of peace, forgiveness and eternal life in heaven. Along the way in a soul’s search it may take detours into the pleasures of sin for a season, but when awakened comes back to the narrow road looking for the Lord. Faith is found in a humble and sincere search for God.
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” (Matthew 7:13-14).
Finding God is educational since the Bible contains sixty-six textbooks in the University of Truth. Upon a quick read Jesus is the main character, ever looking to give glory to His heavenly Father. He is truth personified and His promise is the only way to God. Faith in Jesus as the Son of God is the bridge from an endless hell to eternal salvation in heaven.
“Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:5-6).
Not only does our inner being initiate an audience with Almighty God, but also His great love is out to get us. Righteousness out-romances the soul from sin, it just depends on which voice we follow. Listen for the Lord and you will hear His tender calling for you to come home—listen to sin and it leads to sorrow. Listen, learn and come to Christ in faith.
“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day. It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from him comes to me” (John 6:44-45).
Therefore, look for the Lord by faith and you will find Him. Submit to the seducing and convicting power of the Holy Spirit in your heart. No one has ever regretted receiving the Lord Christ into their life, but many have wished they had not waited so long. A joyful, heavenly party awaits the ones who come to their senses and go home to their Savior Jesus!
“‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found” (Luke 15:31-32).
Am I sincerely searching for God in worship, bible study, prayer and obedience?
