How risky is it to deny God?

The Narrow Gate  |  December 2

The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; there is none who does good.
God looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any who understand, who seek God.
Every one of them has turned aside; they have together become corrupt; there is none who does good, no, not one.

Psalm 53:1-3

Father, King David felt completely abandoned when he sought to serve You. He felt there was none who does good, not one.

Today, Father, we look around and see those who profess their love for you and are grateful we are not alone. We do not, for the most part, feel the persecution and loneliness that David felt but Christians and Jews are experiencing intense spiritual warfare all over the world.

In these difficult times, help us realize that our commitment to You needs to be bold and consistent. Keep us from wavering as the world’s values, in terms of Your expectations, are in a steep decline. Given the profusion of sin, the gate to heaven may indeed be narrow. Help us not be inconsistent in our love for You and our witness to the world. You have stated that it is Your will that all men be saved. That is our hope as well.

Bless us we pray in Jesus’ name, amen.

May 28, 2020 Life here is nothing like life eternal May 27, 2020 Our hope is in that which we can not yet see. May 26, 2020 There are only 10 commandments; get this one right! May 25, 2020 We can't even imagine what heaven is like May 24, 2020 Tongues; only interpretation makes this gift useful May 23, 2020 Can evil and light coexist? May 22, 2020 Peace now...even in strife, followed by eternal joy. Perfect! May 21, 2020 The path to eternal life is simply too simple May 20, 2020 If you know you are guilty of sin, what hope do you have? May 19, 2020 Will we be able to say to Jesus, "I didn't know"?
