Gen 11:4 And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens;
Man’s attempt to meet God on his own terms will always fail.
As much as he wants to believe that God is created in his image – mankind is wrong.
People believe all kinds of wrong things about salvation.
They believe they can be good.
They believe they can work it off.
They believe what they do has no repercussions.
They believe God will compare their good and bad and the good will outweigh the bad.
They believe they can negotiate.
They are wrong.
Man attempted to meet God on his own terms several millennia ago – at the tower of Babel, a building so high its top would be in the heavens.
Gen 11:5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.
Even so God still had to come down to see what man had done. Man had failed at reaching out to God.
God did not leave it at that. He reached out to man on His terms and in His own time. For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. Rom 5:6
God has reached out to you. Accept His offer. There is no other way!
Abba, thank You for reaching out to me and giving me salvation through Jesus. YES&AMEN
