You are in high school and having the best year of your life. It is your senior year and you are at the top of your class. Your grades are perfect, you have tons of friends, and you have a beautiful girlfriend (handsome boyfriend)… Well… You did.. The worst possible thing has happened, she (he) broke up with you. All of the sudden your life has come crashing down. The future you had planned out has now taken and drastic turn and you are lost. You’ve never felt this type of heartbreak before. You will never be able to get over the love that you had for her (him).
How many times have you seen this happen growing up? If you are still in high school, you may have seen it recently. You may have been the one living it.
The truth is when we sin, we give God that same feeling we get when we got “dumped”. The heartbreak that we suffered when we lost our “soulmate” is nothing compared to the heartbreak that God has when we deliberately disobey His word. The difference is that God’s love for us is so much more genuine and stronger than our love for anyone on earth could ever be. Since His love is stronger, his heartbreak is even worse. God loves us more than we could ever imagine. For Him to send His son to die on the cross for us shows how amazing His love is for everyone.
So why do we constantly break God’s heart? Why do we deliberately disobey His commands? Why do we ignore things He asks us to do? The more we sin, especially intentionally sin, the further we fall away from our God.
It is up to us to quit tearing God’s heart apart. It’s time that we all look to live better, more Christ-like lives. We all can improve no matter how great we think we may be. We are all sinner and will continue to sin. God knows we will and is a forgiving God. It’s up to us to change.
If you are ready for change, do it now before it’s to late. God will forgive you but you must repent.
God is Good.
