Keep Your Eyes Open

2 Peter 3:10-18

This world, with all its glittering promises of happiness, love, success, wealth and fame, can enchant us and lead us away from God, if we’re not careful. 2 Peter 3:17 warns, “[B]e on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position.”

It is dangerous when we think ourselves impervious to Satan’s attacks and that we have no need to be on guard because God wouldn’t let us stray. While it’s true that God will never leave us nor forsake us, we have to make sure that we don’t leave Him! As much as He longs for our hearts, the Lord would never force Himself on someone who did not show interest in the relationship. Therefore, we must pursue Him as well. Otherwise, the connection is one-sided, shallow, weak, and will fade with the passage of time.

With Jesus’ return in mind, we should live with our eyes wide open—prepared for Satan’s attempts to lure us away. Seek His guidance and arm ourselves with His Word.

    The bible says in Jeremiah 29:13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
    If we wanted to run away from Jesus where would we go He is everywhere! It is better to run to Him . 1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. When we understand the Love of God for our lives, we no longer need to fear out of guilt, shame or condemnation. God loves us unconditionally. His mercies are new every morning. Thank you for God for loving me and sending your only begotten son Jesus Christ.to die for me.
