This morning Sky News reported that "Sports fans all around the country were left frustrated today when they went online to buy tickets for next year's Olympics in the second round of sales. Thousands who logged on after the website opened at 6am received error messages. Some were told to "try again later" even after submitting their payment details. A statement on the London 2012 website said: "Demand is extremely high at the moment on the ticketing website but the system is still transacting. "If you've clicked submit, don't hit refresh. Please wait and the system will process your order. "If you receive the error 'sorry, we cannot process your payment details', your tickets will be saved in your basket. Please wait a few minutes and try again."
Failing to deliver is a major no no in any business transaction. In fact failing to deliver in any context is harmful and often very hurtful. Many a broken heart could have been avoided if empty promises had not been made. Financial ruin could have been averted if false claims about investments had not been. Further examples readily come to mind.
Let me remind you. God cannot lie. He does not break promises. He always delivers. He doesn't understate the case or exaggerate. His yes and no say exactly what they mean. God says that he 'so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life'.
Do you believe what God says?
He loves us all!
He sent His Son, Jesus, into the world to die for our wrongdoing (sins)
Jesus came back to life on the third day!
We are in danger of facing eternal punishment for our sins!
If we take God at His word and trust him he will forgive us and save us!
The love and life of God is readily available to all who accept his invitation.
May God bless His word to you.
