They Love Me, They Love Me Not

by Carol Connell © 2021

God has no pleasure in men being lost.
He's not willing that any should perish.
Man is God's prized creation
of whom He does love and cherish.

The Lord does not send people down to hell.
They go there by their own choice
when they choose to stay on the road of sin,
disobeying and spurning God's voice.

He created man with his own free will.
He didn't make a compliant robot.
The decision rests solely in our hands
to love Him or love Him not.

"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9

"And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." Joshua 24:15

"For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:" Proverbs 1:29
