Hi, God’s word for me today is in Amos 6:1 which says:
“Woe to you who are complacent in Zion,
and to you who feel secure on Mount Samaria,
you notable men of the foremost nation,
to whom the people of Israel come!”
“woe to you who are complacent” is what Amos says. Those people to whom Israel came and those who felt secure really weren’t. They thought that they were stable and that nothing could go wrong with them, but in truth they were also going to be destroyed because of their sins. They were a false rock, they were the people that Israel went too even though Israel should have gone to the Lord!
Even though we might have felt secure and stable, we weren’t. We were sinners and we were going to die with our sins on us too. Though we might have even felt a bit complacent or smug with ourselves, we were going to die with our sins on us. But, even though we did not trust in God, Jesus still loved us enough to die for us as our sacrifice. We needed a sacrifice in order to be saved and Jesus loved us so much that He died for us and now we can live.
If you have not trusted in Jesus and you are still relying on your own “security” then why don’t you trust in Him and live? If you go to something else then you will have false security, but if you go to Jesus then you will be saved and you will have true security. Jesus is the only one who can save you, why don’t you go to Him and live?
Thank You Jesus that we can have security because You died for us! Thank You Jesus for loving us even when we were complacent and we had not turned to You. Thank You Jesus for dying for us on the cross!
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
