Only God can find us and save us


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times Even though it’s been said that people can and/or do find God the truth is that they do not find Him and cannot find Him because that would suggest they can save themselves and they can’t, none of us can. The truth is that we cannot find God because He is not lost, we are, and because we are lost we need help, and He is the only one that can help us because He is the only one that can find us. He can find us because He always knows where we are and because of that He is always there to help us, to rescue us from our sinful nature and lost condition. While He can find us and deliver us from our sins and the consequences of those sins, He cannot compel us to accept His help. No, only we can make that choice, only we can decide to let Him find us and accept the deliverance He provides or choose to shun Him and stay on the lost path we are on. The choice is ours and the consequences of that choice are eternal.
