The Great ESCAPE: We all …. Feel like ESCAPING… from time to time. Some, from the realities of life, others who are in a ‘bad situation’ …and can’t seem to change course. Some are in ‘work situations’ where they are going fast down a DEAD-END career, and can’t get out of Dodge fast enough. Others… working on a ‘project’ that destined for FAILURE… and they don’t want to be part of the ‘all-out’ process. And, worse… there are those who are involved in ‘troubled-marriages’… that represent unsurmountable problems.
During the last decade… many of our military personnel would have ‘loved to escape’ from their ASSIGNMENT… to be HOME with their families. Plus, those who came home… wounded and maimed, would like to have ‘escaped’ their future life styles. And, the list goes… on.
How about…SPIRITUAL… ESCAPE… when God created us in His Image, He breathed into each of us an ingredient which… we CANNOT ESCAPE…. The ‘Heart of Jesus.’ No situation can ESCAPE His awareness. Nor can we ESCAPE His influence. Sure… we can ABANDON God…but NOT ESCAPE. In order to ABANDON GOD… one has to be ABSOLUTE and INTENTIONA… because the ‘price is high’ and has PERNAMENT consequences. Eternal Hell.
The Holy Trinity gives each us the wherewithal… to DO THE RIGHT THING; every time… all the time. To do GOOD, to do what is right, moral, and ethical. Because… God also gave us ‘free-will’ to choose good over evil… or to do evil… some will join forces with satan… and abandon God. Ignoring God… is a CHOICE… to do EVIL
WE all have a … ‘inner-being’ …known as the Holy Spirit (aka: a conscience), which has influence over our every moment…. REMINDING us of right and wrong. Sin is a CONCIOUS decision… something we do on purpose. And, while the CRUCIFIXATION… FORGIVES us… we do not ESCAPE judgement.
We are RESPONSIBLE for our own ACTIONS. James 5:16 – Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. Matthew 12:36 – “But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the Day of Judgment.”
Let us, then, be more AWARE … and not try to ESCAPE from the INFLUENCE of Jesus, but RUN-TO Him for Divine Protection.
