While God’s revelation to us of Himself is the best thing that can ever happen to us, unbelief and rejection of our Creator is the worst thing that can happen to a person. Ruined lives, destroyed relationships, fear, addictions, stress, rage, all these and more stem from a broken relationship with our Saviour.
Telling your Creator that He is a liar, that He can’t be trusted, that He is not worthy of our love is to commit spiritual suicide.
“But then I won’t be able to do what I want!”
Well, no, not at first you won’t. But this I can tell you with absolute certainty. Doing what God wants instead of what we want will bring more joy and peace and security to your life than any amount getting your own way. In fact, this is so true that one day, you will only want what God wants and you’ll ignore what your old self wants at any point that it disagrees with God’s commands.
The only thing standing between you and paradise on earth is your will being in conflict with God’s will.
The only things worse than experiencing the difficulties that come with living in a fallen world is to go through these trials as an enemy of your Creator.
