There is No Danger

Why are You Still Lost?
(God is Love-There’s No Danger)
There are many different ideas about God, who He is, what He’s like. Some see God as an angry bearded old man with a big club just looking for someone to hit with it and if your not careful it could be you.
Still others see God as a heavenly hippie that never gets disturbed; everything’s alright, everybody’s alright. A don’t worry, I’ll work it out somehow kind of fellow that lets everybody into heaven because He can’t do anything else. After all He’s a hippie- just love every body and let’s all stay high, everything’s ok. Wrong!
The majority of people though believe that God is love and this is true. But because of God being love, he couldn’t possible send anybody to hell, for love couldn’t do that.
In this there is a belief that my good will out way my bad, my giving to charity, my helping an old lady across the street and saving my neighbor’s dog from the pound will all be taken into account and God who is love will see that I tried real hard and let me into heaven on my merit.
Every body wants to go to heaven whether they admit it or not. The majority of people like to believe that someone they love or loved had gone there because of the assumption, that a God who is love couldn’t send them to hell because you love them and you  just know that God does too so they must be there.
The Bible tells us that God is love. (1st John 4:8) But there are some things we must know about love. God who is love is pure love, not like the human love that we feel and experience with one another. If God is pure love then He must also be pure truth, and if He is pure truth he cannot change His rules or His plan of salvation for anyone, no matter how good or how bad they may be.
To be pure love, one must also be just in all ways. In other words pure love would have to also be perfect in judgment and justice. If a thief is caught and is proven guilty does the thief go free if he is the judges’ son? In the courts of this land, that might happen, but not in God’s court. Every transgression must be judged and proper punishment rendered accordingly. You see no one can break the law of God and not face punishment.
The Bible tells us that there is no one that has sinned and not broken God’s law. (Romans 3:23)
We are all guilty and all deserve to be punished. No excuse or reasoning will stand up in the court of God.
Here is where the love that God is comes to our rescue. For God so loved us that He sent Jesus to save us, if we will believe in Jesus to save us, we will experience life and live forever in God’s love. John 3:16-17 Herein is the love of God manifested toward us in that while we were yet sinners  Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:6, 8
This is where we see the love of God in action for us. He loves us so much that He planned a way to save us. Then, He became the way of salvation.. He is not willing that any should perish, but that all come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9
He sends preachers and other believers to tell us so He can have mercy on us and not send us away to a tormenting hell. You see, if any of us reject His son Jesus, God will not accept us into His kingdom, but will send us away.
You see there is danger, real danger if we rely on some myth for our salvation.
God is love. That is why He determined that Jesus could bare all the sin, all the shame, all the sickness, all the pain, all the sorrow, all the torment, all the hell for all people so God who is love could have mercy on all who would look to Jesus and believe Him for their safety in life and in eternity.
God is love- But there is real danger if we are not found in faith in Christ when we stand before Him. But if we are in the faith, He will say enter in to the joy of the kingdom I have prepared for you.
Why are you still lost? Perhaps your not- now
If you have seen what the real God who is real love is really like. Read the Bible- Jesus said if you have seen me, you have seen the Father- you have seen real love-where there is no danger.
