Topic: Tears in the eyes of God
SCRIPTURE: Jesus wept. – John 11:35
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Repent and be saved in order to be safe in time and eternity.
Dr. Morris Cerrulo recounted an experience he had when he travelled to Haiti, a country infested with voodoo worship. As he went to a kiosk to buy a bottle of Coca Cola drink, he asked the dealer if he had heard of Jesus Christ. To his amazement, the man replied, ‘What is Jesus, is it another brand of soft drink?’ What a tragedy!
Dr. Cerrulo said he dropped the Coca Cola bottle and began to weep. How can a mere brand of soft drink be more popular than the Saviour of the whole world? It is like someone who owns a house and is not recognized in the house.
Beloved, there are a lot of tears in the eyes of Jesus because millions of people in the world today have not yet known Him as their Lord and Saviour, and are on their way to an endless eternity in hell.
When you live a sinful life of cheating, immorality, gossip, smoking/drinking, lies, seduction etc. you make God weep because you are on the path of damnation. Repent and be saved in order to be safe in time and in eternity.
Remember this: Repent and be saved in order to be safe in time and in eternity.
1. Go through today’s reading again
2. Take a sober reflection on your character
3. Repent of any compromising character in your life that makes God weep.
4. Determine to be involved in making Our Master Jesus known in the world through soul-winning, beginning from your neighbourhood.
