KEY Scripture 3:12 KJV” They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
Our key scripture makes a very serious statement about the state of men. It clearly reveals that men are lost. Man is lost because sin has taken over the hearts of men. Romans 3:9 KJV” What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin”;
What demonstrates that man is lost? To be lost means the heart of man has been taken over by another influence or power which is not God’s. It also means you are not in the kingdom of God. Every child of God is presently in the kingdom of God (Hebrew 12:22). We see men are lost in the level of depravity all around us. Crime have multiplied in our time than any other. Immorality is in a dimension that beats one’s imagination. One basic acid test to check how men are lost is the absence of peace in the hearts of most people. The level of hatred for Christ is alarming. An elderly man preaching in a bus was violently attacked by a woman in the USA. John 3:19 KJV “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil”.
Dear one, are you lost or found, do you have the peace of God in your life? Who is in charge of your life.? Do you sincerely love the Lord Jesus? Jesus is the only one who truly loves you. Satan is called the adversary because he is the enemy of your soul. This spirit called Satan is the one who is holding most men captives. He would ultimately lead you to hell, if you do not respond to Jesus’ call. Revelation 3:20 KJV “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. “You can be found if you would allow Jesus to be your Lord. You would be right in the kingdom of God. This is your moment to be found(saved) . Turn your life to the master today.
Dear Heavenly Father, my sins have sent me away, forgive my sins. I declare that Jesus is the Lord of my life.
Jeremiah 17:9 KJV. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
