Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth like dross: Therefore I love Jesus!!! Good morning, reader! The frigid temperatures have caused me to reflect on the blessings which the Lord provides to me on a daily basis! My day’s agenda is jam packed with tasks but I’m so grateful that I have the health to do them. I have laundry because I have clothes. I have dishes because I have eaten. I have housework because I have a warm house to live in during these cold days! There is always something for which to be grateful, amen?
Today’s verse is quite sobering because there are so many souls who have no idea that they will be “put away” by God. :'( It challenges me to work diligently at this blog and to be a light to those I come in personal contact with every day. Dross is the impure matter and worthless part that is thrown away during the refining process of a metal, like silver. With that in mind, reflect on today’s verse. God puts away the sinners of the earth like a refiner discards dross. There comes a time in everyone’s life where we must stand before God to give an account for our lives.
This is no small matter, friend! It is a very serious one indeed. It all boils down to whether or not you have believed in faith that Jesus Christ is God; that He came to earth; lived a sinless life; died on a cross for the forgiveness of our sins; and arose from the grave on the third day. There is no other way.
As you can see, there will be no excuses for you to give God. He has given the opportunity for all to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. There is no other way. There is no other name. There are no excuses. With the knowledge provided on the internet, one has the opportunity to search out these matters. God puts the information out there. Even a native in the deepest forests of South America or Africa have an opportunity to hear when they are searching. God knows their heart and He will send a missionary or believer to show that native the way. God sends people in anyone’s path to explain the Gospel of Christ. Think for a moment … there was a time in your life where you heard the Gospel. If there hasn’t been a moment like this, then consider this blog post your “moment.”
Jesus promises salvation to you if you call on Him!
This verse doesn’t say that you can “hope” for salvation, as all religions teach. Jesus says you shall (not might) be saved when you call upon Him. The Lord doesn’t want you to perish and be cast away like dross. He wants you to be saved.
Friend, if you need help to sort all of this out, please reach out to me and I will help you.
I’m praying you have received a blessing today. If you are already saved, please feel free to share my blog with friends and family that are not saved. Sometimes they don’t want to hear this from someone they are close to and when it comes from a stranger it is better received.
