Something to think about: Do you want to live … in a chamber (Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death. Proverbs 7:27) – or – in a mansion (In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you . John 14:2)?
God has provided a way so that our sins will be forgiven. His son Jesus lived without sinning and died in our place so that forgiveness is available to all. Not all, however, accept this.
The memory of that “adventure” came back to me when I was meditating on a scripture from the book of Jeremiah. He is God’s man on the earth and is prophesying against Israel and Judah. Both Israel and Judah had lost their way. They have drifted from the ways of God and are caught up in the ways of the world. Yet, God does not give up on them.
Each new year, resolutions are made, but seldom do they result in lasting change or improvement. Who among us has sought the advice of men to help us with our sin problem?
