God wants your attention

But the Lord sent his servant Moses, along with Aaron, whom he had chosen. They performed miraculous signs among the Egyptians, and wonders in the land of Ham. The Lord blanketed Egypt in darkness, for they had defiled his commands to let his people go. He turned their water into blood, poisoning all the fish. Then frogs overran the land and even invaded the king's bedrooms. When the Lord spoke, flies descended on the Egyptians , and gnats swarmed across Egypt. He sent them hail instead of rain, and lightening flashed over the land. He ruined their grapevines and fig trees and shattered all the trees. He spoke, and hordes of locusts came – young locusts beyond number. They ate up everything green in the land, destroying all the crops in their fields. Then he killed the oldest son in each Egyptian home, the pride and joy of each family. Psalm 105: 26-36 NLT

What would it take for God to get you attention?

What kind of miracles would God have to enact for you to be released from the things holding you back?

Would God have to go as far as killing for you to be free?

Jesus has died for your sins. God has allowed a killing of his first born son, his pride and joy, so that you may have true freedom. The miracle is that God didn't stop there. God wanted more than just forgiveness of our sins. God wanted us to live with God forever. So, God raised his son from the dead.

What will it take for you to realize what God has done for you?

Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again. Glory to be to God in the Highest. And in our lives, peace. Amen.
