Meet His Sacrifice

Written by Joyce C. Lock


Would Jesus go to through allrepparttar suffering ofrepparttar 126911 cross If God's promises were a lie? Do we truly believerepparttar 126912 entire Bible isrepparttar 126913 infallible word of God When we discount it's application torepparttar 126914 modern day church? When Jesus said we could dorepparttar 126915 works He'd done and even more, Did He really mean just some of them? When authority gets heart service, but God gets lip service, Have leaders become our god? Jesus respected authority. But, who did He bow to? If we don't know how to dorepparttar 126916 works Jesus did, Isn't Herepparttar 126917 best One to learn from? When we omit consideration of one's heart, Have we become a better judge than God? When all Satan has power to do is to roar, Why do we let him devour us? Have we forgotten who is KING? Have we forgotten who we are As children ofrepparttar 126918 KING? © 2003 by Joyce C. Lock

Consequences

Written by Joyce C. Lock


God has moments of anger, like as do we. However, some have misconceptions about His response. There's an unspoken law of consequences betweenrepparttar forces of good and evil, a result of being born into a sinful world.

In observing my daughter, as a very young child, whenever she was disobedient. If I didn't discipline, she'd suddenly become injured or some other mishap. It was as if God was punishing her, or so I thought.

Once God gave me an example of how it really is.

Imagine yourself standing betweenrepparttar 126910 sidewalk and curb. Your hands are wrapped behind your back, tied to a tree. A car is coming and your child runs intorepparttar 126911 street. You've no physical means of reaching that child.

Hearingrepparttar 126912 speeding car, first thoughts come faster than you can verbalize, "No! The car will hurt you!"

You scream a plea, with anything you think might cause that child to change their direction, before itís too late. That is how it is with God. Were it any other way, He'd have to take away our freedom of choice.
