“Come quickly to help me, my Lord and Savior.” Psalms 38:22
Anyone who saves is a savior. But there has to be reasons why you need to be saved first. My dictionary actually says “A Title of God, especially Christ,” only he knows how much we definitely need a savior. He knows every thought in your head. He knows every evil thing. He is a Father to everyone. And parents know their children aren’t perfect, even though they don’t always catch them in the act, but God does. The punishment for doing wrong is death, but he totally agrees to forgive charges so that we can have our lives back. That sounds very fair to me. You just need to acknowledge the Savior himself, that’s Christ Jesus. That’s accepting the gift that he bled and died for. So most people choose to keep their sin and evil. They like their life just the way it is and choose to be in charge. That’s good and well but you still have to die one day, we all do. But we don’t know when that day will be but only God knows that. Whether you will be young or old. You have chosen your position. You didn’t want a savior so your life will be void of saving, forevermore. Most of us can’t fathom infinity but it’s a really long time. The absence of God means only evil, no good. So that means no good ever again. Never a good day, ever. So now do you realize why you needed a Savior, especially Christ?
“We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” Isaiah 53:6
I was praying one morning and I was asking God how people have gotten so deceived and out of control? And he said that just like pigs in a pen love rolling around in the mud and eating slop. It’s just what they know. Doesn’t sound very pretty does it. That is all they know and they think that’s all they need or want. Nobody likes change and it’s uncomfortable, at least at first. They are used to it and don’t have any idea what they don’t have. Imagine that same pig is a precious pet. Whose owner would do anything for them. Clean them up and maybe put a cute outfit on them. Put them on a soft, silk, pillow and give them treats to eat. Do you think that pig would complain? They only knew what they knew. If you only knew hate and evil you would be much like that pig and learn to accept it and live with it. We are all created by a loving God who wants so much for us. The problem is that he will not force that on anyone. That pig can’t choose for itself. But God loves us and respects us enough to let us do it our way. Even if that way might bring us so much pain and regret. If you only knew what you were missing. Most people think they know what will make them happy. A secret I have learned over the last few years is that only God, the one who created you and knows all about you, everything you have ever done, said or thought, he does know what is very best for each of us. He has even given us a manual to teach us everything we will ever need to know to have an awesome life. I have tried it his way. He has never ceased to amaze me. Everything he says really works and nothing fails. A lot of it might not even make sense to my simple mind but it does work. There is a whole other world out there that I didn’t know existed. I am now sitting on that fluffy pillow enjoying treats all day long. Satan still tries to bring evil into my little world but I have put up a wall around myself and it’s getting harder and harder for him to get through. Because Jesus paid for every one of my sins with his life.
