My youngest daughter came for dinner last night and did a feeding for me. Yeah! Like all babies, the squirrel baby gets sleepy as she's eating and is out when she's done! Reminds me of nursing my own precious babies. Ahhh, what precious times and cherished memories! I took this shot of her holding the baby.
When I look at this picture all I can think of is how helpless we all are in truth. Oh yes, we think we are big and strong and are handling life on our own. We are doing it. But the truth is we can't even get our next breath or heart beat without God providing it. Every second of every day of our lives He is actively aware of us, providing for us, loving us, inviting us to come close to Him, to take Jesus as our Savior and protecting us in His strong hands.
We are as helpless as this baby squirrel. We only delude ourselves into thinking we don't need Him. It's a dangerous lie to believe. If we believe it long enough, we will leave this world without Him and spend eternity in hell with no possible way of escape...as helpless to change our fate there as we are here to add a minute to our lives. The only real power we have is choice. We can choose to repent of our sins and ask Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, to be our Savior, giving Him our lives and all of ourselves and then being immersed in water baptism in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit as we are commanded as soon as possible...or not to. I'd love to meet you on the other side on that glorious day when He parts the sheep and the goats. Lord may we all please be found to be Your sheep!
- " 31"But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne.
- 32"All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats;
- 33and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left.
- 34"Then the King will say to those on His right, 'Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
- 41"Then He will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;
- 46'These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.'" Matthew 25: 31-46
