Genesis 28:13 And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed.

On last week I used the above scripture in my blog, “FAITHFUL TO THE FAITHLESS” and on this week I am going to use this scripture again.
As I said on last week in this scripture God talked to Jacob for the first time and acknowledged He had a relationship with his father and grandfather but not with Jacob. He told Jacob He was going to bless him but Jacob’s told God He had to prove himself to him prior to him making a commitment and it took over twenty years for Jacob to do so.

Also, as I said in my last blog God is faithful to us even when we don’t respond to Him positively. God waited on Jacob but He may not wait that long for others. I personally knew people who said they would give their lives to God when they became older but their lives were cut short without them ever making that commitment. Many have been deceived into thinking their lives without God is alright, they don’t understand that having a relationship with God is profitable and brings a lasting reward.

For those that take the salvation message lightly I suggest reading the words of Jesus found in Luke 13: 24-28. Jesus cautioned the crowd with these words, “Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.”

This is the period of grace that has been extended with an invitation for whosoever will. However, this period will one day be over and those that have not accepted and committed their life to God will find the door shut. A denial of access will be given to anyone attempting to enter the kingdom of God illegitimately.

As we celebrated the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ this Easter Sunday, let’s not let His suffering and dying be for naught. If you haven’t given your life to God, and if you haven’t made the commitment to serve Him wholeheartedly how about doing so right now. Let it be said if the question is asked, “Is He your God” you can say, “Yes, He is my God too.”
