Conversation with God, Part II

Lord! Lord!
(SILENCE)

Lord! Lord! Where are you? Hurry!
(SILENCE)

Hello? Can you hear me? I need you, NOW!
WHO IS IT THAT SPEAKS MY NAME?

It is I, Lord, your child.
I DO NOT KNOW YOU.

What? How can you say that? I have worshipped you for years. I sing in the church choir. I act on the drama team. I teach Sunday school. How can you say I am not your child?
I SEE WHAT YOU DO. I DO NOT KNOW YOU.

I pray every morning and evening. I teach my children about you. I even tell people about you from time to time. I tell you all of my secrets. I ask you to solve my problems. How you can say I am not your child?
I HAVE SEEN AND HEARD ALL OF THIS, BUT THEY DO NOT MAKE YOU MY CHILD. HAVE YOU TAKEN TIME TO LISTEN TO ME? HAVE YOU OBEYED MY COMMANDS?

Oh, Lord, I do not follow that law. That was for Old Testament days. They do not apply to me. Besides, I do what you say…
STOP. DO YOU READ YOUR BIBLE? DO YOU DO AS I HAVE TOLD YOU? DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT NOT EVERYONE WHO SAYS, “LORD, LORD” WILL COME INTO MY KINGDOM? TO BE MY CHILD YOU MUST LOVE AND OBEY ME. YOU MUST CONFESS YOUR SINS AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I AM GOD. YOU MUST GIVE UP ALL OTHER GODS: THE GODS OF LOVE, MONEY, MATERIALISM, DRUGS, WORK, AND LUST. THEN, AND ONLY THEN, CAN YOU BE MY CHILD.

Do you mean that I am not going to heaven? Do you mean I am not right with you? How do I get right? How do I enter your kingdom? I do not want to be left out!
CHILD, WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS RIGHT. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT IDEA OF SERVING ME, BUT YOU MUST HAVE YOUR HEART IN THE RIGHT PLACE. YOU READ YOUR BIBLE, BUT YOU DO NOT LET ME TALK TO YOU. YOU MUST APPLY THE TEACHING TO YOUR LIFE. YOU MUST PRAY AND GIVE ME TIME TO RESPOND. YOU ONLY COME AND TELL ME YOUR PROBLEMS AND THEN LEAVE. YOU MUST WAIT TO HEAR MY VOICE. YOU CAN BE MY CHILD. YOU ONLY HAVE TO TAKE THE TIME TO LOVE ME AND ACCEPT ME AND ACKNOWLEDGE ME IN YOUR HEART AS YOUR ONLY GOD. CALL UPON THE NAME OF JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR AND OBEY THE COMMANDS I HAVE GIVEN YOU.

Oh, Lord, I do confess the wrong within my heart. I will trade those false gods for your love and true riches. Father, I will follow you and obey you. I know you died for me and were raised again for my sins. I know you paid the price so that I might live for you. I will do as you command. I will no longer delay my obedience. I will follow your commandments, Lord, and live for you. Thank you, Lord! Thank you!
YOU ARE WELCOME CHILD. GO ON YOUR WAY AND SHOW THE WORLD YOUR LIGHT. LET IT SHINE BRIGHT WITHIN YOU. I LOVE YOU.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
