I want the world to know God. I want the world to know His goodness. I want the hopeless and despairing to be lifted up. I want the wise and worldly to see that they owe all they have to Him. I want the proud to humble themselves. I want the humble to be exalted by Him.
God is not a god. He is the God, the only true God. He’s not like the idols of modern culture. He’s not limited in his abilities. He’s everywhere at the same time. The thoughts of every man are known by Him. This is not too much for Him. His arm is powerful. He made a tree out of things not visible. In a fraction of a second he thought out the workings of the entire universe. All of the forces of nature, gravity, thermodynamics, the mysteries of the woman’s mind, a human eye that would see stars billions of miles away, the fruit bearing tree, the newborn baby!!!.
David thought about the works of God and said, “6Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is too high, I cannot attain to it….14I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well….17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!” – Ps 139:6,14,17
There is a God in heaven. He’s made Himself known so that men are without excuse, Rom. 1:20. So let’s talk passionately about Him. Let’s be the people of faith who show the way for the lost souls of this world. All of His works are marvelous and I am committed to Him.
If you are not living by faith, then you are trusting in the flesh. The fleshly acting man relies on his own wits and strength. And when his wits and strength run out, he’s run out and there’s nothing to hope in. People of faith trust in God who is teacher, counselor, deliverer, savior, friend, king, and much more. A man of faith will do more than a man of the flesh. A man of the flesh receives only the wages of the flesh. But a man of faith receives from God eternal rewards. God makes all the difference in the world. And He’s ever so close. His salvation and help is being offered to all.
There is a God. We call Him Jehovah. He came and lived among us for a while to show us the way to live. By His life and death, Jesus Christ understands our every need, fear, and hope. Of these things I am certain. God is more real than the keys on this computer. He’s more real than the screen you are looking at. God is the ultimate reality. Acknowledge Him before it’s too late. Open your eyes of faith. Seek Him and His righteousness. Separate yourself from the world. Repent of the sins you have committed against Him. Obey Jesus’ Gospel by being baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Your sins will be forgiven and you will be brand new. God is real. Don’t doubt it. God has a will for you. Don’t resist it.
