Where Do They Go?


"To whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life" (Jn.6:68) "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands" (Psa.19:1).

When people decide not to turn to God, just where do they turn? Many years ago, I sold my clams to a man who knew not only that I was a Christian, but actually preached from time to time. He had a basic mistrust of ministers, and though he was a good person in many ways, let me know. Frank might have been what we today call a Deist... His place of business was right along the bay and he would point out to it and tell me that God was out there... Today's verse talks about the wonders of God's creation, and I too believe that God is out there in bay. The Bible is replete with words about His creation. We read about the sun, moon, stars and planets, along with the seas and plants and animals... The earth is certainly a magnificent creation as we see God's handiwork all through it. It reinforces my belief in the Creator... But what we do not see in the creation is pardon. We don't see forgiveness, or hope of eternal life in it either. Nature is beautiful, but silent... Many folks turn in all the wrong directions instead of to God. They may turn to the world, to infidelity or to science, but none of these touch the rim of eternity. It might be interesting to note here that many who cruise through life on the gentle seas, look for God when the seas get rough. God wants a total commitment from us and does not want to be the choice of desperation. When many turned away from Him Jesus asked the twelve whether they would too... Peter answers for all of us... "To whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life..."

Have a great day... Make your little part of the world better... Love mark Phil.4:11
