Blockades 4

2Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, he teaches us of Jesus and Jesus knocks on the door of our heart wanting us to invite Him in.
Salvation is voluntary.  God will not save you against your will.  Jesus will not beat down the door of your heart and force Himself on you.  You have to believe that He is who the Bible teaches that He is.  You have to believe that He has to the power to save you.  This is all voluntary but thankfully it is free.
God has placed many blockades on the road to Hell.  There are some I did not cover in detail.  The prayers of your family and friends, missionaries witnessing all over the world, preachers proclaiming the word of God,  Gospel Tracts placed and handed out for the lost to read and many more.  Why?
Because God wants everyone to turn around from that road to Hell and get on the straight and narrow path to Heaven by trusting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Email us with questions, comments or even suggestions for further devotional studies.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know.  Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus.  I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
