I pray often for the unsaved to be saved, that God would move their hearts, soften them, change their minds. I do not want anyone lost. I want them saved and going to heaven, especially everyone. I love these beautiful people God made! I love you! ❤ But the thing is this free will God gives everyone. It is a conundrum, it really is. On the one hand, what an amazing gift to allow us to decide for ourselves whether or not to choose the right side, God’s side versus the wrong side, evil and rejection of God. You see, He requires choice because He is love and love is nothing if not generous and true. Love is not self-serving and longs for sincere love back but does not demand it.
If we were puppets, God would be imperfect, a tyrant demanding us to follow and obey Him or die. God is loving and will not demand our worship but gives us a sound mind and opportunities and thr Bible to know Him, salvation through Jesus to be saved, blessings in our lives to see His goodness, longings for Him deep in our souls, and His beauty of His glory in His creation and in us and all He has made to make His presence obvious.
So with ample chances and opportunities to accept salvation ample nd choose God, His desire and mine is that people use these many many chances to decide to be free, be God’s, be loved and loving, worshio, serve God. People can decide. But at some point, the lack of making a dedicated choice will be the undecided’s or procrastinator’s or lukewarm’s or rebel’s choice because time will be up. He will come for those of us deciding to be His firmly and faithfully. It will be too late. And I pray people will get their act together before too late is here and they realize too late lasts forever.
So yes, we have free will and can choose to serve God or ourselves/evil/anyone other than God. And yes, we are big stuff for being able to decide our eternal fate for ourselves. We are free to be wise or fools. So, let’s all be wise and choose God to serve and obey now so too late doesn’t show up before we expect it. God loves us so much!❤❤❤
