You’re on a need-to-know basis.
God is Unrelenting, like a boy after his lost puppy.
Unrelenting is the passion God has for us. He continues to love us, search for us, find us and then, all of heaven gives a big, “OH YEAH!!!!” when we are found.
Just like a puppy, we don’t think we’re lost. We are just exploring all the sights and smells on this good earth. Aren’t we made for that? Yes, but not without our invisible fence. This fence is really the Holy Spirit of God which is activated when we trust in Jesus as our Savior and Lord. It comes free of charge and without an installation fee or that suspicious little notice of “Some Assembly Required.”
When we come to Jesus, confess and turn from our sins, we can go and explore anywhere we want, because He is faithful, by His Spirit, to always be with us. He will guide us and protect us from ever being lost again, and it is not with a shock collar. It comes through loving God, searching His Word (the Bible), finding the Truth (Jesus), and rejoicing in Him forever.
Unlike a boy who might lose his dog, God will not allow you to be lost to this world’s bad sights and smells. Isn’t it good to know what we need-to-know about being a good puppy. Isn’t it time for your walk... with the Lord?
