All of us are sinners
Each with particular sins that produces a God shaped void in our hearts, minds and lives
And we like little kids at a beach
With our sand pails and tiny finite shovels
Try in vain to fill our void with our particular idols and sins
They grant us temporary relief
Yet in time those same idols.
Those same sins
Will exact their price
And leave us even more empty and even more hopeless…even more enslaved….
Mark 8:35-37New King James Version (NKJV)
35 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. 36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? 37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
May God give my heart…Love not only for redeemed sinners but All sinners…
