Ain’t No Shotgun Wedding


Jesus loves you and wants you to love Him, but He won’t make you. He won’t force you. This ain’t no shotgun wedding.
If God wanted to override our programing and make us love Him, He could, but we ain’t robots. He didn’t make robots. He made us with the built-in function of deciding for ourselves. (Oftentimes at our own peril.)

“This day I call the heavens & the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life & death, blessings & curses. Now choose life, so that you & your children may live.” – Deut. 30:19

God loves you so much that He allows you to pick who you will love. Would if be true love if there was a gun pointed at your back? Would you accept the love of someone who had no other choice? Of course not. It wouldn’t be sincere. It wouldn’t be real. It would be fake. Ain’t nobody love fake.

God included.
