Luke-Repent and receive

  Luke 13:1  There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
Luke 13:2  And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?
Luke 13:3  I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
Luke 13:4  Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?
Luke 13:5  I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
  There is a belief, especially among the Jews of this time, that bad comes to bad people. Jesus was not seeing as they were seeing. Even some in today's church may be thinking that bad things happen to people because of sin or lack of faith. How often I have heard people speak of their past, blaming God for abuse they suffered in the bad care of parents. Some just believe that because of all the bad, it was their fault, because they were told by those who they wished to please, that it was their fault. We need to know some things. The devil and sin cause problems. Accidents happen to all people, yes, and angels do protect God's children of faith. The answer is JESUS.  Repent and receive him, for no matter what may cause your pain or death, it matters not, if your soul belongs to God. If you have repented of the way of sin and believe in Jesus and are his, you shall not perish. Jesus will love you forever and you will be a member of God's family. Do not try to reason why things happen, instead receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and master, you are eternally safe in him.
