Thought of the Day !!

For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
                                    Romans 10:13 (ESV)

I just began teaching a study from Francis Chan's book Crazy Love.  The first chapter speaks about how infinite God is and how minute we are compared to Him.  But even though God has always been and always will be, and even though He set the billions of stars and planets in place, He still cares about little ole me (and you). 

In His vastness you would think it would be difficult to come to Him.  Think about how busy the better doctors or surgeons can be and how hard it is to get in to see them.  Think about how difficult it would be if you wanted an audience with the President.  God, who is so much greater than the best surgeon in the world or any world leader, can be reached in an instant.  We can all call out to Him at the same time, and none will get a busy signal. 

For those who call on the name of the Lord, they will be saved.  It's not some 12 step program or elaborate procedure for us to join with God in eternal life.  It's simply calling on His name, or desiring Him and loving Him, which leads to the desire to obey Him.

Don't make it harder than it really is.  And don't allow the devil to make your feel guilty when you fail to live up to what you think you need to be doing.  Just call on the name of the Lord and ask the Holy Spirit for His help.  He will not only save you, but He will love you and guide you.

In the love of Christ,
