Broadcasting to the world

Some time in the last year Diane was on Facebook and she noticed a friend was broadcasting live. She clicked on it and our friend did not know they were broadcasting live. You could see the phone set on the the coffee table and you could hear our friend talking with their spouse. Diane immediately called this friend from my phone and they answered their phone and when they said, “hello?” we heard it on Facebook as well. When Diane told them that they were broadcasting live on Facebook we could see them pick up their phone and then the broadcast ended. There was nothing incriminating in that live look into their home. But it is scary to think of what would happen if everything we have ever said or done was public record. It serves as a reminder that one day, everything you have ever done will be an open book before the God who created you. And we are all in the same boat. While most of us have never done anything too bad, none of us are perfect. And perfection is what is required to enter heaven and the presence of God. Yet in a way and for a reason that will we never be able to fully comprehend, if we will receive the gift of salvation offered to everyone through the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, “God imparts to human hearts the blessings of his heaven” (O Little Town of Bethlehem). What makes you acceptable to God is not your own record. It is Jesus’ record imparted to those who believe and receive. Have you received Him? Will you receive Him?

God, I admit that I have fallen short of perfection. I ask you to forgive me of my sin through the sacrifice and grace of Jesus. Amen.
