House Rules

Posted by Cinda On April - 23 - 2013

laughingkids4Every home has its house rules. Every house has its own different rules even. We all determine what we will and what we will not tolerate in our home. Some rules maybe to take your shoes off when you walk in the house; leave your shoes outside; no jumping on the bed; no sitting on the counters; stand when you say grace; hold hands while saying grace; take your dishes to the sink; rinse your dish and put them in the dishwasher; make your bed before you leave; whatever the rules are you know them and you make it clear for others as they come what you expect while they are in your house. Nothing wrong with rules in the house and we all will comply with other’s rules even if they are not the ones we would enforce at our house.

Well there is no wonder then that God has rules for His home as well. He keeps the rules simple so that we can all understand and can be comfortable with them. He has said, “No one comes to the Father except through the Son.” “My sheep know my voice and follow me.” “Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin.” “For God so loved the world he sent His Son that who so ever believes in Him would not perish but have ever lasting life.”   We all have rules for reasons. Some of them are to keep us and those in our home safe, some are to keep things clean. Some are to just keep order. But they all have a purpose. In God’s house, he has purpose also. You see, God can not live where sin is. He will not have sin enter His house. So He has made a way for us to enter into His house as clean and free from all sin. That way is through His Son, Jesus. There is no other way. I know that some people think it is to simple others think it is to hard. It really is hard to understand so that is why is comes through faith. To have faith that Jesus is God’s Son. That is came to earth and was born to a virgin. That he lived a sinless life, died a cruel death on the cross to cover sin for all people once and for all. That He was buried and rose again on the third day. Faith to understand He went to  heaven to prepare a place for us and will come again for all of those who have put their faith in Him.
