Only in America can we not balance our books, live the high life, not be our brothers keeper, wear rose colored glasses concerning the poor in our country, the problems in the world, killers and drug abuse in our homes, schools, malls and movie houses, and think all is right in the world. Do what you want…. what makes you feel good…and the devil take the rest is the prevalent mind set. When the world becomes so self centered and egotistical, foolish and shallow we fail. It’s no wonder the great minds of today are wasted in fleshly pursuits. What does it matter? Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die. We are just gonna turn to cosmic dust. However….What will you do if you find out we are not merely animals? What if Jesus is exactly who he says he is? He says be perfect and we cannot. The best we do deserves death. We cannot satisfy our sin debt before God. Your best bet is to trust your life into the one who made you in his image. Don’t waste your life. Invest your life in Him. He loves you and desires to forgive you. It’s a gift he offers because you do not deserve it, cannot earn it and no money is enough to purchase it. Just ask him for it. Trust him and receive it. It truly is free.
23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Rom 6:23 )
