MY FRIENDS, WHAT ELSE MUST OUR GOD DO TO SAVE?
God is a Sovereign Majesty, an all-powerful, all knowing, all wise, and Omnipresence being, “every beast of the forest is [His], and the cattle on a thousand hills. [He] knows all the birds of the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are [His]. “If [He] were hungry, [He] would not tell [us]; For the world is [His’], and all its fullness.” (Ps. 50:10-12) (NKJV)
And because of our inability to go to him like we would go to a friends house for dinner, as we knock and wait for a response to enter. Our God, comes to us. This awesome God, the Creator of all things, humbled and lowered himself a little lower than the angles, to come to the very one’s He created and not for the purpose for us to serve him as he sits in some royal court surrounded by an array of subjects.
No my friends, He came to serve. Which tells us, we are no longer lost sheep, He has found us, cleaned us up and now He is preparing us on every level for life eternal. But with that privileged, there is a responsibility, for “whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. Matt 10:22 (KJV) So we must now tell the good news, which let’s us know.
“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!” Rev. 5:12 on our behalf. And now we should understand with no reservation that we are children of the King. So we now must give it all to the Master.
Not tomorrow, but at this very moment we have to put on the whole armor of God, “because we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Eph. 8:12 (NKJV) And with this armor Satan cannot intimidate, or discourage us, because we are children of the King and He protects His own.
And our faith also tells us, we have been chosen” for such a time as this. Because, “God from the beginning choose us for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, to which He called [us] by the gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, brothers and sisters, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught,” that tells us, “God cares for everything and sustains everything that He has created. He who upholds the unnumbered worlds throughout immensity, at the same time cares for the wants of the little brown sparrow that sings its humble song without fear.
When men [and women] go forth to their daily toil, as when they engage in prayer; when they lie down at night, and when they rise in the morning; when the rich feasts in his palace, or when the poor gathers his children about the scanty board, each is tenderly watched by the heavenly Father.
No tears are shed that God does not notice. There is no smile that He does not mark. If we would but fully believe this, all undue anxieties would be dismissed.” (Steps to Christ, A Knowledge of God, pp 86) But it is only when we believe those words with such a passion that we carry out the mandate of our Savior and carry our cross as we become “witnesses [for Him] in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
