In a recent sermon, I shared some of the more funny warning labels that are on products. For example, on Duraflame logs, there is a warning that says, “Caution—Risk of Fire.” It may sound funny, but there must be a reason why it is there. What about the more serious warnings that we are given? We are told that driving and texting can be deadly, yet I see people everyday doing it. It has been proven that smoking can be hazardous to one’s health, but regardless of the warnings, people still smoke. Why don’t we listen to the warnings? When it comes to your spiritual walk, “did you read the warning”?
In 2 Chronicles 24:20 it states, “20 Then the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest, who stood above the people, and said to them, “Thus says God: ‘Why do you transgress the commandments of the Lord, so that you cannot prosper? Because you have forsaken the Lord, He also has forsaken you.’”
Yes, the Lord has given us a “warning label” and it is called the Bible. Have you read the warning? Are you following the warning? Just like the warnings on products, God’s “warning” is to protect us and provide us an eternity of peace and joy with Jesus.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
