The Kitchen Table Devotional: The Game of Life Day 68
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience Ephesians 5:6
Two things occupy the “empty” life: Disobedience and disappointment. Here without Heaven is difficult, deceptive, and depressing. Here without Heaven is full of people who use empty words to get empty things. A man without a Maker is a man without meaning. For some reason, empty people go back to empty wells to fill their empty buckets (hearts). Immorality births impurity that leaves us with insanity. That’s a life that makes no sense. Disbelief and disobedience will only leave us with the disappointment of an empty life. The Bible says, “Therefore, do not be partakers with them for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of light.” (Eph 5:7-8) Disbelief and disobedience keep us empty and darkness keeps us blind. Only love can bring light into our lives and it all begins with believing and behaving in the love of God. You were made and saved to live in heaven here.
