Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. Isaiah 59:1,2.
There are over 216 million connected telephone lines in Nigeria as at 2015. No doubt, the telecom industry has had a positive impact on the lives of Nigerians. Recently, I had the need to buy one of the mobile lines to use for my landline at home. Having other mobile lines to use for my regular calls, I only use the home line to receive calls and rarely made outgoing calls. After a while, I wanted to make a call using the line but was told that my line has been barred! Every attempt to load a card on the line also failed as I was also barred from doing so. I later called the customer care unit for assistance. To my dismay, I was told the cold truth: my line has been barred and I was asked to visit their nearest office to have it restored. I later opted for another line to avoid the hassle of visiting their office and the waste of time I may experience.
Brethren, most times, our ‘spiritual network’ line also operates in the same manner. When a man gives his life to Christ, a relationship line is opened with God. God comes into that life and transforms him/her to his image. This relationship may continue for some time, say months or years, and needs to be maintained and sustained to blossom into eternity with God.
For some however, their relationship with God has suffered a setback, they have forgotten their first love (Rev 2:4), they began to compromise, fall and live in sin, they forsook prayer and the study of the word, and some even stopped going to church. The cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, the pride of life, etc. choked their walk with God, and their relationship with God is broken and suspended. Our text made it clear that our sins has separated between us and God and he can no longer hear us. If this relationship is not restored, they will remain separated from God here on earth, and in eternity forever from God in Hell. Beloved, has your spiritual line been suspended or disconnected, does heaven still know you as a son or daughter of the kingdom? I urge you to earnestly do all in your power to restore this relationship before it becomes too late.
You can do so by praying this prayer: “Lord Jesus, I come to you today. I believe you came and died for my sins. Today, I surrender my life to you. Please forgive me all my sins, wash me by your blood, and be my Lord and Saviour. Thank you for saving me. Amen!”
If you pray this prayer and you meant it, then you are now a child of God (John 1: 12). You need to get a Bible and read it daily, and also take time to pray to God and avoid every form of sin. Locate a Bible believing church around you to attend regularly.
