O Stubborn Heart

Standard

Sitting here with nought to do
But all my thoughts are fixed on you.
I’ve tried so many times I’ve tried
To reach you with the love of Christ.

Your heart is hardened like a stone
And all you do is moan and groan.
I hope and pray your life will be
Forever changed so that you’ll see.

You don’t believe there is a God
His message isn’t understood.
You know your life will end one day
And that’s the end I hear you say.

But life is more than simply that
And one day you will realise.
God loves you and He longs to see
You with Him for eternity.

Many times I post here about the love and mercy of God, the sacrifice He made for each and every one of us through His son Jesus Christ. The message is so simple. God loves us but our sins keep us apart from Him. The only way to bridge that gap is through Jesus. He is our mediator, the one who took upon himself our sins so that if we believe in him and accept that sacrifice he made we can be forgiven and reconciled with God. It is God’s free gift to us but we have to take it for it to be ours. Head knowledge means nothing. It is through God’s grace and mercy and our own faith in what He has done that we are saved. We need saving for without it we are lost forever. We will never believe if our hearts remain stubborn but God will eventually turn His back on us completely if we continue to ignore Him. I could quote all sorts of Bible verses to show how much God loves us but to the stubborn heart it is a waste of time. Why do I persist in trying to reach you? Could it be that I am concerned for you? Yes I am. Could it be that there is a reason for that? Yes there is. Could it be that my eyes have been opened? Yes they have. Could it mean that I know something I didn’t know before? Yes I do. You too can know if you open your heart. Reach out to God and he will reach out to you. The alternative doesn’t bear thinking about.
