Brick by brick, the tower grew higher and higher. And so did their pride. They wanted to be famous, and safe. They wanted to be “the ones” to do this thing with their own hands. They were quite pleased with themselves. “The ones”.
“Look at this mega church I built”. “Look at this ministry I built”. “The bigger, the better because people will see me and how close I am to Jesus”.
You see, God wasn’t pleased with them. He could see what they were doing. They were trying to live life without Him. That doesn’t make us happy, or safe, or ANYTHING.
Living life like that only destroys us. God loves us too much to let that happen. So, He’ll interfere. He’ll stop things. Plans get halted. We get annoyed, but we need to just see that God is saving us from ourselves.
God knows that however high we reach, however hard we try, we can never get back to Heaven by ourselves. We are not saved by our works (Ephesians 2:8-10)
We don’t need a staircase; we need a Rescuer. The way back to Heaven isn’t a staircase, it’s a Person.
We can never reach up to Heaven, so Heaven came down to us Jesus.
Jesus. Jesus. Jesus.
It’s all about Jesus.
Today’s thought: I cannot save myself, this situation, or this person. I need Jesus.
See: Genesis 11
