August 15, Sunday Devotion

August 15, Sunday Devotion
Joel 2:30-32
30 And I will cause wonders in the heavens and on the earth—blood and fire and columns of smoke. 31 The sun will become dark, and the moon will turn blood red before that great and terrible day of the Lord arrives. 32 But everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved, for some on Mount Zion in Jerusalem will escape, just as the Lord has said. These will be among the survivors whom the Lord has called.Quick Notes/Questions
Today, we are going to delve a bit into theology.  Some people believe in universalism, the idea that everyone will go to heaven no matter what they do or believe.  The above passage seems to go against that it says that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.  Don't misunderstand this.  It requires both belief and action for salvation on our part.  God does not force us into heaven.  We have to accept his grace.  If we don't accept it, we don't get the same deal as those who do accept it.  The question is, are you going to call upon the name of the Lord?
Quick Prayer
Almighty God, I call on you because I need your salvation.  Let your grace surround me.  Amen.
