Salvation calling…

 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem…how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.”

Luke 13:34

In this scripture we can hear real frustration and even desperation in Jesus words.  He knew His time was up and yet Jerusalem was still steeped in sin.  So He used the imagery of a hen gathering her chicks under her wings, to show how He yearned to protect them from damnation. He knew their unwillingness to accept Him would lead to judgment and desolation.

Nothing has changed since then. Jesus is still pleading with each of us to turn away from our various degrees of sin, and accept His offer of protection…His offer of salvation.

Prayer

Dear God, thank you for Your willingness and commitment to go to Jerusalem to die, in order that I may be saved. Help me to live a life that is worthy of Your sacrifice. Amen.
