Who Does God Exclude?

13 Aug

God’s Word: Romans 11:25-36   (The Message)

God’s Message to me: (My interpretation of what God is saying in these verses)

No one is excluded!  Everyone receives the same invitation. by-invitation-only Jesus’ death covers all the sins of humanity. Abundant life here and now and eternal life in My heaven—is My invitation to everyone.  You did receive My invitation didn’t you?  You didn’t!!!!!!  I wrapped it in story so you would be sure to open and read it—the Bible.  My followers were to deliver the invitation throughout the earth so everyone could hear My story and believe.  Unfortunately, My followers are not perfect—just forgiven.

Accepting My invitation covers your sin from My sight.  It doesn’t prevent you from sinning while on earth.  Your free will remains for you to continue making your own choices.  My invitation shares the path to accept My forgiveness.  Read it—believe it is true—act on your belief.  I exclude no one but allow everyone to make up their own mind about accepting my invitation.  When you invite someone to a party they can choose or refuse.  You can’t force people to accept your invitation and I won’t either.

Life is My free gift to humanity. You did nothing to deserve it–you just received it.  Eternal life is also given as a gift because Jesus purchased it for you by His death on the cross. And this gift is offered to all who choose to accept Jesus atonement for their sin. My best advice for you is to READ My invitation—HEED what you read, and SEED your life with the wisdom you discover therein. Accepting My forgiveness will cause you to become a forgiver.  Accepting My peace will motivate you to become a peace maker.  Those who accept My invitation make the world a better place and share this good news.

God’s Question: Will you accept My forgiveness?

God’s Promise:  My peace replaces your anxiety.

My Prayer to God:

I Praise You for Jesus’ sacrifice on my behalf.

I am Sorry I am not sharing in more vigorously.

Thank You for forgiving me.

Please Help Me let your light shine through me today.
