September 5




”Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, "Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?" Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, "Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?" No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.”
(Deuteronomy 30:11-14 NIV)

Sometimes people say ”I can’t”, when they actually mean ”I don’t want to”. In the early days of The Salvation Army one often sang the words ’Whosever will may come’. This theology was correct, because coming to Jesus, has more to do with our will than our understanding.
Many people say that they would be Christians if they could only believe. But today’s Bible verses show that knowledge doesn’t matter as much as one’s will. The Word says clearly that God has made the Bible’s message accessible to all, who truly want it.

Prayer
Thank You Father that You have made it possible for all who will, to believe in You and Your Word. Help me today to live in order that it will be easy for others to come to You.
