As a child, I knew nothing about the Lord. All I knew was that God was Holy, untouchable and judgmental. These qualities are obviously not true but why did my innocence lean towards that direction?
I can admit the people I surrounded myself with didn’t quite have it right either. We all went to church and it seems like we had to walk a certain way to be considered a true Christian.
So many rules and so many obstacles to feel worthy of God’s forgives kinda forces one to quit. At the end, we can’t meet such a high standard.
I learned the hard way that God is good. I finally realized how good He was when I recognized how bad I was. Rock bottom opened my eyes to a forgiving Father. When there is no where else to turn with your sins, God is waiting with open arms.
The key is to remember, God wants us ALL to make it to heaven. Don’t let the lack of knowledge keep you down and rob you of a peaceful, joyful life.
Hosea 4:6 My people perish or lack of knowledge.
