Have you ever experienced betrayal? Most of us have. Several things occur within us; hurt, disappointment, jealousy, anger, to name a few. We can’t comprehend why the person we love would turn away from us to go to another who hasn’t loved them like we have, especially when we know that the love the other person has for them is for their own selfish gain. Our loved one may have suffered from a moment of poor judgment, but the heartbreak within our soul cuts deep to our core.
Imagine how Jesus feels when we turn away from him to please ourselves with our sinful desires. He has given us everything and yet we still seek pleasure from the evil things of this earth. It’s time for us to straighten up, take the narrow path, and stop chasing after the satisfaction of sin, and turn back to the one who has loved us enough to be tortured, and then hung on a cross, just to save us from being destroyed by our own wickedness.
Today is the day, turn around, and run back to our Savior. He is waiting with open arms.
Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:28-29
