1. The non-religious, the irreligious, the religious and the spiritual - each are hardening their hearts to God.
2. In the hope that people will return to Him, God does, at times, bring disaster.
3. It is only because God is sovereign and all-powerful, that human beings have freedom and hope.
4. God is untamed and untameable, only good and wholly just, present and all-powerful, truly real and inescapable - so heed Him when He speaks and live knowing you will meet Him.
5. “Prepare to meet your God.” “This is my beloved Son, listen to Him.” “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”
6. Dear Lord, please make me a disciple of Jesus gripped by the Gospel who is living for Your glory by daily obeying Your word and growing in the knowledge that You are all-powerful, really real, only good, untamed and inescapable. AMEN
