Two Kinds Of People!

There are two kinds of people. Those who say to God "Thy will be done", and, those to whom God says "Alright then, have it your way!"

- C.S Lewis

There are no other choices! The former leads to a place of brokenness and repentance, the second to destruction. Or do you think that the Lord says without reason in Matthew 21:42-44

"Have you never read in the Scriptures: 'The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; this was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes'? Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruits. And the one who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; and when it falls on anyone, it will crush him."

When it is all said and done we DO NOT want to have it our way! Our way is one of darkness. Our way leads to death. Apart from the light of God man can but grope around in the darkness. Lost as a blind man in a dark forest on a night with no moon! He may promote himself to a blind leader of the blind, but they will both fall into the pit.

But, the Lord is full of compassion and mercy. He will give light to those who seek him. He will save those who call upon His name! Question is, will you?
