Daily devotional: The non "seeker-sensitive" Jesus

Scripture
And they cried to the mountains and the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of the one who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb."
Revelation 6:16 NLTse

Observation
General contemporary "seeker-sensitive" theology dresses up Jesus as a kind, gentle man-God who lived 2000 years ago and loves us. The issue is that this is only part of the story. Jesus is also holy, righteous, and all-powerful. For those who search for Him, there is joy and gladness in Him (Psalm 70:4), but there is wrath coming for those who choose to live their own way. And for those who God has called but who choose to turn back to a life of sin, God's anger and punishment will be great (Ezekiel 16:43,59).

Application
Embrace Jesus and turn to Him! Fully devote ourselves to Him and expierience his joy, gladness, and peace. Don't continue in or turn back to sin.

Prayer
Jesus, You are righteous and holy. I worship You as God over all and Lord over me. Thank you for saving me, loving me, and compassionately caring for and developing me. You are the man-God who lived 2000 years ago, but You are also the God whose eyes are like flames of fire, whose feet are like polished bronze, whose voice thunders like mighty ocean waves, and whose face is like the sun in all its brilliance (Revelation 1:13-16). I humbly come to You and worship You. Take me and use me to glorify your name and fulfill your plans. I love you!
