This is Just A Minute Suppose you go…

This is Just-A-Minute. Suppose you go to the grocery and buy a can of beans. After a lengthy period of time you open it to find the beans are spoiled. Likely you will throw them out. That is your right. You bought them, so you own them. They turned bad, spoiled, so you toss them out. No one charges you with being unjust for disposing of what has turned bad. But says one, “God so loved the world”. True, but even a beloved pet is put down when it becomes rabid. The only difference is the dog didn’t choose rabies, but we have not only chosen sin, but craved it and reveled in it and filled our cup full of damnation. We deserve whatever God has in store for us. The writer of Hebrews says, “our God is a consuming fire.” But there is hope in Jesus. “He is the way, the truth and the life and no one goes to the Father but by him.”
