THE STORY OF JESUS: 2 Corinthians 1-2
“Our message to you is not “Yes” and “No.” (2 Corinthians 1:20)
No matter what happens, God is working affirmatively in our lives.
God is not fickle or contrary; God always loves us, and wants the best!
But we make that hard, for we are constantly ‘yes’ and ‘no’.
Humans are inconsistent and unreliable, both hot and cold.
God allows us the freedom to choose, and to experience the consequences.
This is why there is suffering and death in the world.
This is why there is frustration and disappointment.
God does everything He can to win our hearts back to Him.
His sending Jesus is a huge YES to us: I am with You, I am for You!
He offers comfort to the suffering, forgiveness to the sinners.
He rescues us from more deadly situations that we can ever know.
But in the end, if someones refuses, He will sadly say YES too.
He will give us our heart’s desire, even if that desire is NO to God.
As a Jesus follower, I want to rely on God’s YES, no matter what.
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, are You with me, are You for me, are You strengthening me, will You bring me safeyl through??? YES and AMEN!!!
