On a recent cruise, I noticed an amusing section on the dinner menu. It was titled “Didyaever”. It listed things you might have wanted to try in a restaurant, but were afraid to because of the cost if you didn’t like it. Now, you could try interesting new things and if you didn’t like them, you could just send them back.
There is a similar situation in the spiritual realm. There are people who may have wanted to ask the Lord’s forgiveness and be saved, but were afraid they might be rejected because of past sins. Or, perhaps they were afraid to trust the Lord because they had been disappointed or betrayed in the past by someone they loved. The Amplified New Testament gives us this is beautiful promise: “All whom My Father gives (entrusts) to Me will come to Me; and the one who comes to Me I will most certainly not cast out [I will never, no never, reject one of them who comes to Me]” (John 6:37, AMPC). There is a myriad of reasons why people hesitate to call upon the Lord. You may be such a person.
If so, I have good news for you. “For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you. Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2). Now is the day you can call to Him and He will save you. It is His free gift to you! “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9, NKJV).
‘Didyaever’ want to see if God’s grace could really be true? This is what His word says to you: “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!” (Psalm 34:8). You can taste and see for yourself that He is essentially, infinitely, perfectly, immutably, and solely GOOD.
The pleasures of the world may seem sweet to those who have never tasted the grace of God, but people who have tasted God’s amazing grace lose their taste the pleasures of the world.
God Is Good
