Seek the Lord

Something to think about.

Seek the Lord

“Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the LORD, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:6-7 NKJV

God is calling to you. He is doing all He can short of taking away your free will. For you to turn from your wicked ways and be saved. The principal part of these verses is “while He may be found”. If you turn from your wicked ways and repent, God will be gracious in mercy and forgive you.

There will come a time in your life when God will stop calling, wooing you. His call for you to repent is not life long. There is a moment when God will leave you to your own devices, leave you to your own righteousness. Then when your time comes to stand before God, you will only have your righteousness to justify yourself before a perfect God. He will judge you by His perfect standard, do you really want to do that?

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
