Life Without God
Life Without God is an empty life without purpose or meaning. How far would a ship go without its rudder to guide it? God is our rudder and guide. Jesus Christ died that we not go through this life aimlessly. Life Without God is a life without direction or purpose. Life Without God is a life without hope and it leaves us feeling incomplete.
Remember the anticipation of receiving something desired? How long did it take for the excitement to wear off upon receipt? Objects of desire were never meant to fill us up with lasting satisfaction. And yes, while a person is not an object the same natural law applies. A person or thing were never intended to fill us and sustain us. A person or thing were certainly never meant to fix us from brokenness.
I personally have always been curious about finding the truth. Although one who is enlightened knows I have taken paths leading to nowhere. I have experienced many things in this life, some beneficial to growth, some not so good. People and material things will come and go, and without God the emptiness remains.
Life Without God is a simple unpretentious post because loving God is simple and true. Imagine if Christ never died for us, what are the implications of that? Without this supreme sacrifice would we have been left to our own devices? Would grace and mercy exist if God had not sent his Son in our stead?
We all have shoulda coulda’s in our lives. Thank God he loves us enough to let us stumble awhile, knowing we would. To those I may have hurt in my life, I earnestly pray for your forgiveness. And to all those who have punctured my heart with daggers, go in peace.
