Parents always have a role of looking after their children, the gift from God. They are mandated with the role of teaching that which is valuable to them and society at large. Irrespective of how stiff-necked their kid is, the parent will toil to meet the needs of that kid. However, parents do not just provide for the kid but they discipline the kid for their errors and give advice. At times the parent may give the kid an eye of sympathy to see if the kid will change their negative character even by continuity of their goodness towards them. If the kid does not change, serious parents who are loving, will take a ‘better bitter’ style of straightening the young fellow.
many of us who are believers do ask ourselves, just as Jeremiah did in chapter 12:1-4, how on earth the men (men and women) who profane God, dishonor Him, reject Him, commit abominations amongst other wicked thins continue to build castles, being in good health, looking glorious yet we who seek to honour Him and search Him cannot stand along their paths? Indeed others will proclaim and confess how God has been good yet in their hearts and acts they exhibit no Rhyme. When the non-believer says that he/she prays and his prayers answered they forget that God is just like those parents waiting for their kids to change.
indeed they will make statements like, “every person know their God well” and am left wondering whether we have 7billion gods or one and the everlasting God: Yahweh. If it is with reference to Him, then His standards are Explicitly explained in the Bible though some will claim they are Implicit and inadequate to convince them to change. Actions that are good will save not lest some of us prophesying Christ as lord and Saviour stand next to some ‘good doers’ and remain dumb in that their level of helping is 90% while yours is 15%. Salvation is only by the believing in the person of Jesus Christ for salvation is found in no other name apart from the name of Christ Jesus. Good actions are just but fruits of the one inhabiting in us as Believers who is Christ Jesus. Like the Eureka exclamation by Archimedes, I will lift up the banner and say: ‘I have the answer.’ and when they ask me what the answer is I will give the answer as a who (person), and His name is CHRIST JESUS and Not until We Find Him Our Hearts Remain Restless.
