Walking Dead?

Genesis 6:11-13 "Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth".
It had to be gut wrenching for Noah. It took like 100 years to build the ark. All the time knowing that every person he seen was going to perish. SO I guess we gotta ask daily, hourly…, are we content with seeing people around us, knowing where they are going, are we content to just stand on the sidelines thinking, “glad that’s not me, I know where im going”. “Well this is an evil generation and they deserve what they got coming”. I could see myself like Jonah so easily, “forget those people, I don’t even want to be around them, much less endure them in church”. “They are evil and they got it coming, if they repent they wont pay the price.” We gotta see WE WERE THOSE PEOPLE TOO, and God certainly didn’t give us what we deserve. God is not fair! And for that I am thankful, because fairness would be giving me what I really deserve, instead of DYING TO GIVE ME HIS LIFE, the life I don’t deserve
I think in reality we all kinda pick and choose who we witness to, and rightfully so to some extent. We do need to test the waters, and not shove the gospel down an unwilling throat. That being said, Its ALL waters that need to be tested, because we don’t know which heart is ready and which isn’t, even aside from that, which seeds we are dropping on the path and which are being planted, all are His seeds. Sometimes its just to give that person, who will never accept Him, another chance. God is just and its His will that none would perish, so everyone will get a chance to turn to Him and accept the gift of Life, JESUS CHRIST our Savoiur. Jesus paid the price so we don’t have to.
One of the shows I watch is the Walking Dead, my Pastor says, “If I want to see the Walking Dead, all I have to do is go outside”. How very true, The Day of the Lord is coming, it will soon be upon us, what are we doing with the knowing? Are we just sitting around watching the news saying, “yup the bible says it will be like this, it says that would happen, gonna be soon, I cant wait to get out”. I don’t believe that’s why Jesus told us the future, or lack of one for this earth. We are to be telling the world, Romans 10:9 “That if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart God raised Him from the dead YOU WILL BE SAVED”. His parting words were to go out and make disciples! There were 120,000 people in Ninevah that repented when Jonah told them Gods message.
Then ya gotta ask yourself, What do you see when you look around? And What are you called to do about it? Just food for thought, I want to hear Him say "Well done". Stay Blessed, PJ
