For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. -Romans 10:13 (NIV)
God reaches out to us, but will not intrude uninvited. He waits and watches for the opportunity to save us, if only from ourselves. Just as an addict cannot be helped until they are ready and willing for change, most of us don’t recognize our need for God until is it so great that the hole around us seems insurmountable.
Humanity is so addicted to our pain, our aloneness, our self-reliance, and pride, we cannot see beyond into the deep peace, joy and fulfillment a life in submission to God imbues. How can we not continue to bring focus to the soul’s urgent need and the greatness of God’s of love to satisfy?
