After twenty-five years of owning computers, something happened a while ago for the very first time. My hard drive crashed. Non-computer users are probably scratching their heads and asking, “What’s that?” To put it in easy terms, it means two things; it’s broke and all the luggage is lost. Every file I had on the computer is lost, all the photos, all the music, everything.
At first that had me in a panic. All those things gone. But then I began to realize, none of it means the end of the world. I can take new pictures and I can get more music. The real important files can mostly be made again. If I’ve lost it, well then, it’s lost.
I’m glad God doesn’t look at things that way. If there is one soul that is lost, He will fight as much as He can to get that soul to turn back to Him. God cannot make you love Him, but He can give you every opportunity.
How much does God love each one of us? John 3:16 has the answer. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” How much more love could He show?
