The Walk Away ... and its Horrific Results

October 03, 2017

In all of humanity, every person is walking in one of two directions in their relationship with the God of the universe. You are either following Him or walking away from Him.

Try an experiment: walk straight ahead. Then turn around and walk in the exact opposite direction. Then—here's the interesting part—walk in BOTH DIRECTIONS AT THE SAME TIME. 

Jesus said, ""He who is not with me is against Me."" Paul said, ""Walk by the Spirit and you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh."" And listen to God speaking to Israel through Jeremiah:

Thus says the Lord, “What injustice did your fathers find in Me, that they went far from Me and walked after emptiness and became empty? (Jeremiah 2:5)

You choose the direction you're headed--every day. In fact, every decision, every moment of the common day. 

But be assured of this: if you walk away from God, you will be headed ""after emptiness"" and you will ""become empty."" It is the absolute, determined destination when we turn from God.

Also remember: you are leaving the God who loves you, who has provided for you, who has riches untold for you, in whom alone you find life. As the Lord says: ""What injustice did your fathers find in Me that they went far from Me?”

There’s no legitimate reason to walk away. Realize you are being pulled by the world, the flesh, and the devil. By His grace, make a deliberate turn RIGHT NOW and come back to Him!
