As we see Bible prophecies unfold before our very eyes at breakneck speeds, a thought that crosses my mind is, “what is it going to take?” What is it going to take for people to get serious about their relationship with Christ?
There are so many things happening that it’s almost dizzying trying to keep up with it all. It doesn’t matter if it’s local or on a state level, or even on a national or global scale, there is just so much happening that people know that something is up. There’s talk of an impending economic collapse not just here in America, but also in other countries and foreign economic institutions. In America the government is developing more and more into “big brother” where we have less rights, less say, and less privacy. Natural disasters are almost becoming common place and their impacts are immeasurable. Let us not forget that there are wars all over the place with the grim projections of major wars on the horizon.
With everything going on in the world around us, and seeing Bible end-times prophecies being fulfilled right before our eyes as never before, what is it going to take for people to take their relationship with Jesus more seriously? It’s as if people would rather play a fiery game of “Russian Roulette” with eternity. Does this make sense to you? Is ones eternal destination really not all that important to them? Do they not truly understand what Jesus offers them in regards to eternity in Heaven, or even how bad hell is?
Often times it take a pretty traumatic or devastating chain of events or experiences that causes one to change and take things seriously with their relationship with Jesus. For some, it takes a devastating economic setback of some sort. For others, it’s the loss of a loved one, and for others poor health or the onset of a serious and potentially terminal disease or health condition. It may be the end of a marriage or the betrayal of ones you love and trust. The list of things that could cause one to stop and re-evaluate where they are in their relationship with Christ can be limitless. In any case, something had to happen in order for God to get their attention.
When these things happen, people have two options presented to them, so to speak. They have the option of allowing whatever it was that got their attention to propel them into the loving and gracious arms of Jesus, or they can choose to be angry, mad, and bitter towards God. The choice is theirs to make. The choice is yours to make.
So, if your relationship with Jesus is not of utmost importance to you, or it isn’t something you even care about, what is it going to take for that to change? What is it going to take for God to get your attention? What is it going to take? Think about it.
