What causes an individual to shut the door on their relationship with the Lord? Lose religion? What makes some Christians – stroll away?
Dying of a cherished one
I believe most individuals will expertise no less than one on this checklist and doubtless a couple of. I’ve heard many individuals say one among these was what made them throw up their palms and stroll away.
When Life Hurts the Most
When that harm comes alongside, that is when it is important for us to be there for each other – to assist one another cling to God as a substitute of turning away, and assist convey us again after we lose our approach. We have to preserve loving, praying, and caring for one another. I can’t emphasize sufficient how a lot we should do that for one another in these troublesome instances in our lives. Devil desires that turning away to occur and he’s most likely clapping his palms when it does.
God By no means Lets Go
For these of us who’re God’s youngsters, and one thing occurs that causes us to let go of the grasp we’ve had on His hand and we flip away in anger, harm, or disbelief – He by no means lets us go. We’re nonetheless His, it doesn’t matter what. Regardless of what number of years you reside your life away from Him, while you breathe your final earthly breath, you’re nonetheless His youngster with the eternal life He died to offer you while you accepted His reward of salvation. You’ll spend eternity in heaven with the Lord who by no means allow you to go.
If all God’s youngsters may actually grasp that now, and absolutely perceive that He retains holding onto you even while you “let go” of Him, wouldn’t it make a distinction?
A Option to Come Again Residence
I heard this testimony in a Sunday morning church service and it stuffed me with such hope for each individual that faces deep ache and strikes distant from an in depth stroll with the Lord. This younger man’s testimony jogged my memory that God is at all times calling us again to Him.
It was the testimony a person in his thirties shared about “stepping out of his relationship with the Lord” after a divorce, and nearly changing into an alcoholic, till somebody he labored with invited him to come back to church, and since he was feeling on the finish of his rope, he agreed to go together with his co-worker to 1 church service. He fantastically mentioned that when he went to that one church service, “It was like coming house, I felt the enjoyment I bear in mind figuring out after I used to stroll shut with the Lord.” He admitted, he was the one which walked away, however he realized now that God had been there all alongside ready for his return.
“For I’m persuaded that neither loss of life nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor issues current nor issues to come back, nor peak nor depth, nor every other created factor, shall be capable of separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.“
