We all need laser surgery

Not a big fan of surgery! I have been so blessed in life to, at this point, only have had two experiences many years ago. I did undergo laser surgery performed by the Great Physician, and I would like to offer it to anyone who needs it. It is painless and life-preserving!

This is a surgery of the heart, a surgery that shines the laser of hope and grace into hearts that are darkened by the absence of God. You see, there is an incompleteness about those people whose heart does not contain a fill-up by the Holy Spirit of God. Every human heart desires to be filled with the glory of God's healing light. When one is without this light, he or she is swimming upstream against the ravages of sin and loneliness. We can be fooled by the evil one and society into thinking that we can make it on our own, that we can be good enough people to make a difference and end up in Heaven.

Not true, unfortunately. No amount of good deeds can sustain us against a God who hates our sin and is completely aware of each evil deed and thought. We are deserving of wrath and lost from His desire to be in relationship with us. Enter the Gospel and the Great Physician. While He is a powerful God who sustains everything and is fully sovereign, He is also a God of love and reconciliation. It's a weird combination, but it truly benefits those of us who know our condition and yearn for the chance to remove the barriers and be adopted into the Family of God.

He must begin the process; yet, we have to be aware of Him and respond to His wooing. In a magical way, He fills us, simultaneously, with the recognition and with the understanding of His glory and the gospel of Jesus Christ. It's obvious in so may ways; we have to "see" it and open our hearts to the Spirit. The rest is up to a wonderful surgeon who truly knows what he is doing.

No health insurance needed, here. You need not call for an appointment. Just get on your knees and listen, carefully. Then surrender to the power and the glory of the God of the Universe. You are covered; He is ready.

Praise our God!
