Sorry! That’s the first thing that comes to mind today. After several days of issues with my blog site, all I can say is sorry!
Thankfully, what I am responding to is simply a website and e-mail service. Sure, it does distribute the Word of God, and I am disappointed that I may have missed some opportunities to spread more seeds. However, I am thankful that this instance is solely related to a “communication” and nothing else. You see, even though I was unable to communicate normally in the last few days, the Word which I do speak remains unchanged.
Despite any technical difficulties or human intervention, and regardless of anything that happens here on earth – God is still God! And His plan for Salvation remains true. There is nothing I can do, or technology mess up that will change God’s unfailing love for us.
Over 4,000 years ago, He put in place a plan to save our dear souls from eternity and we can’t mess it up (God’s plan – that is). In spite of how hard we try and no matter how many times we fail, God’s plan remains.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16 (NIV)
That’s a lasting truth that remains forever!
So, if that’s all good, why worry? Well, I’ve mentioned that no matter what we do, we can’t mess up God’s plan, right? That’s true! The problem is that there still is something that we CAN do that will mess up the world we live in. It won’t affect God’s plan – He set that before us. But if we fail to choose God’s plan for our lives, then we won’t have an eternity to share with Him. If we don’t accept Jesus, then we have denied Jesus. It’s one or the other – there is no opt-out.
The same is true for our friends and everyone else in the world. There are many people that have accepted God’s plan of Salvation. However, there are many more people that have not. For them, they have either actively or passively denied God’s plan and will not spend eternity in Heaven.
It is our responsibility to share God’s plan with them. What will you do today to share God’s plan with someone you meet?
