God is Calling You

Mark 15:34 At three o’clock Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

For some people, Jesus is real – for others, not so much. After all, what relevance can He possibly have, here in the 21st century? What impact can He possibly have in the busy, complicated lives that we lead?

It’s easy to have a vague, distant belief in God … you know, like a bit of an insurance policy just in case there is a heaven and a hell. Maybe you cry out to God in times of trouble, but that’s about it.

Well, if that’s you, I believe that there’s something that God wants to say to you today. He’s not looking for some vague, distant thing. When you were formed in your mother’s womb He was there – He saw you. In fact, even before time began, He’d already planned your life – who you’d be, and every moment of every day, including this moment right now, to tell you this.

I love you. I don’t want you a million miles away. I want you close to me. That’s why I sent my Son, Jesus. You’ve heard the story. You know how He suffered on the cross, how He cried out in pain.

Mark 15:34 At three o’clock Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

That was my cry. That was me crying out to you, Don’t you realise how much I love you? Don’t turn your back on me another time. Come close to me. I want to give you a new life – a rich, vibrant, abundant life, a life with me that will go on for ever and ever.

Today, with all my heart, I believe that God is calling out to you, crying out to you … Don’t you realise? Don’t you realise how much I love you?

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
