People Are Strange

Oh, strange! We believe in Satan’s willingness to tempt and to injure; but not in God’s willingness to deliver and to save! Nay more, we yield to our great enemy when he seduces into sin, and leads away from Christ and heaven; but we will not yield to our truest friend, when he draws us with the cords of a man, and with bands of love! We will not give God the credit for speaking truly when he speaks in tender mercy, and utters over the sinner the yearnings of his unfathomable pity. We listen, as if his words were hollow; as if he did not mean what he says; as if his messages of grace, instead of being the most thoroughly sincere that ever fell on human ears, were mere words of course.

  1. We live in a culture that avoids intimacy. There are a lot of people who are afraid of falling in love with God more than the world and world systems that they all ready know.
