To The Daily Sun,
How does one gain an audience with the President of the United States? How does one gain an audience with, arguably, the most power man in the free world. Can I just walk into his living room at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave? How about just calling him on the phone and telling him how I think he ought to do things? Perhaps I can reference my awareness of his kids and that is sufficient to get access into his private chambers?
I just visited DC a year ago, and given the security surrounding the White House, I suspect any of the aforementioned actions will, at best, get me the bum's rush, and, at worst, incarceration. The president can only be approached on HIS terms, by HIS invitation, past HIS security, at HIS pleasure.
How does one gain an audience with GOD?
How does one gain an audience with the Creator of ALL things, both seen and unseen? Can I just walk into His throne room (metaphorically speaking)? How about standing in a pulpit and telling Him how I think he ought to do things? Perhaps I can reference my awareness of His Son and that is sufficient to gain access...?
If we cannot, with impunity, impose our "selves" onto a mere man, how much infinitely less qualified are we to stand before God Almighty? He dictates how! He dictates when! He dictates IF! But the good news is that He has said, "COME! and this is the road to get to my house." "Follow these directions and you will not get lost. Veer from them and you will not make it. Trust My words and believe in My goodness and you shall live with Me eternally!
PS, The gate is a tight fit, bring only your love for me. Also, the road is narrow, watch your step. By the way, I sent My Son to show you the way. There are no short-cuts, just follow Him past the cross. He is My gift to you, Merry Christmas!
