Tale: Beware of the Company you keep III
Tale was still pondering on the way forward when one of the gang members came to visit him and persuaded him not to leave the gang. He told Tale not to worry that with time, everyone will find his own route. What he meant was that some of them will someday need to travel out of the environment and when that happens, there will be nothing holding anyone down.
A little detail the friend forgot to add was that the information was for those who made it alive and Tale began to consider his friend’s advice. One evening time while watching the news, he saw something striking. It was a robbery gang that had gone to rob a night earlier and 4 out of 5 robbers were killed.
Opportunities God gives
God gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good and sends rain on the just and the unjust too (Matthew 5: 45b). Despite Tale not being on the right path with God, he was still given an opportunity before entering eternal damnation. If you’ve read the previous post, you will remember that Tale had the premonition that something bad will happen to him if he joined them in the robbery. Seeing it on the Television was a confirmation.
it’s not every time God will send Angels or prophets to us. Most times He communicates with us using things around us as He did with Tale. Now, it’s our choice to either accept His offer or reject it. He has given us the will to make decisions and will not force us to do what we don’t want to do as the devil does.
The enemy has nothing good to offer, he only makes evil deeds look good. This is the way he traps people. God has given us every good thing we can ever think of and has made it available to us in His Word. His Word is our manual for living.
If you want to surrender to Jesus, take this salvation prayer.
Lord Jesus, I come to you today as a sinner, I surrender to you. Forgive me all my sins, wash me clean by your blood, and deliver me from the power of sin and death. I believe that you died for me and on the third day you rose again. I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Come into my heart and be the Lord of my life. Thank you Lord, for delivering me from the power of sin and death. I am delivered, saved, and now a child of God.
Congratulations my dear brother and sister. Now a brand new you has emerged because if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation (2 Corinthians 5: 17). If you just surrendered to Jesus, you can reach us at email@example.com to stay in touch
