[ A Warning against Drifting Away ] So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it. [ The kingdom is not entered by drifting but by decision ]
“OUR” Choice is in You Father. You are Holy, and we are, not so much. Just don’t drift in and out of “OUR” life without “OUR” “BE”ing attracted to You; we would float right past “OUR” salvation. No one just floats toward You. Love is a choice! You first loved us and us, not so much.
To “BE” Holy as You are is on solid ground, the rock of “OUR” salvation. Who moved? Not You for You draw us to Yourself, to name us among Your “BE”loved ones in an everlasting family where we always want to do the right thing. Heaven on earth, in us who “BE”live again the life of the Son-of-God, doing Your perfect will, not so much.
Doing and “BE”ing is the problem. You first loved us and care for us, giving us Your Word to feed “OUR” hungry and thirsty souls. There is never been a day go by without You “BE”ing in it. We admit it, we avoid You but now we search to find You are still here to rescue the perishing and care for the dying. You are merciful, You will save! Throw out a lifeline and reel us in. You loved us first and sent Your One and only Son to save us.
We owe You a debt of Love. To restore us bodily takes a huge sacrifice; to pay for what we could never afford must have bankrupt Heaven? How may we ever repay the debt of love?
Lead us not into confusion but deliver us from the evil one who wants us to drown in “OUR” own right-in-us. We are safe in the power of the cross that anchors “OUR” souls in endless glory.
“Amazing Grace!” “Amazing Love!”
