What a wonderful God we have! 'He created us to know Him and to love Him and to serve Him on this earth so we can be happy with Him in heaven'. This is right out of the Baltimore catechism from long long ago. I grew up learning it. It is truth simplified.
When God created first man, He knew He must give men free will to choose. He also knew that free will could cause man to sin. Indeed, first man betrayed God, and chose to listen to satan who knew that sin would travel down infecting man with a sin nature and spoiling God's intention of having us in heaven with Him. So God countered that move by making a plan for His creation: Jesus would come and pay the price for our sin. You see, because it was a human man sinning against a Deity, it was a legal requirement: in order for us to be freed from our sin nature, we would have to be reconciled by a God/man.
God's plan from the beginning was to save us. He knew with our free will and sin nature we would make wrong choices, and no sin can exist near God’s perfect goodness. It is like bringing paper too close to a fire; the paper would be destroyed. God prepared in advance a way for all men to be saved. His plan was Jesus who would clean the slate for us.
Now our place in the plan entails carrying the Gospel message to everyone we know. We are God’s hands and feet and mouth. Thankfully, we have Holy Spirit indwelling us to guide and mentor us. Have You invited Holy Spirit to come and live in your heart? If you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, invite the Holy Spirit to come and live in you. He loves us too.
Holy Spirit is God in us. With His indwelling presence, we have our Lord to greet each morning as we climb out of bed. We can dedicate the day to Him right away. Ask for His anointing to speak to someone or some people today about Jesus' love. He will bring people along Your path and give you the words to say. It’s like John 15 teaches~ every soul we reach for Jesus is a fruit, joy to God, to the redeemed and to us.
John 15:16-17 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. 17 This is my command: Love each other.
God is Three-in-One = Father Son and Holy Spirit, 3 persons in one God. We are made in His image~ not exact replica, but Spirit, soul, and body. There is so much joy in getting to know our God! I invite you, my friends, to take on the journey of building an intimate relationship with our Lord God. The book Cast Up A Highway can help begin or further your journey to construct a highway from your heart to God's heart.
