The Creator of the Universe, God Himself, knows and loves you and me, despite everything we are and have done, and that has to be the best news ever! Also, He wants us to know Him!
Can you imagine knowing God the way you know a friend?
He is Infinite, and we are finite, yet still He cares. He is Eternal, and we are dust and will return to it, but we are on His mind. That’s almost like you or me seeing an ant and wanting to develop a deep friendship with it. I said almost because the big difference is we and ants are more alike than we want to believe.
It’s true, though, in that we are both creatures, created things, and He is Self-Existant without a creator. So having Him, our unfathonable Creator, step off His plain of existence just to connect with us and show us who He is better than the best news ever!
It’s the gosepl, the good news about God, we all need to live because we are so very broken and dead (Eph. 2:1 and 13).
Don’t make the mistake of a lifetime. Think about His wanting to connect with us, and study the following statements and verses again and again. They are just a few of many that show His magnificent grace and loving Nature.
1. God loves us and offers amazing plans to give us hope and a way to escape the punishment we deserve.
Romans 5:8 John 3:16 Jeremiah 29:11 Romans 2: 5-7
2. We are separated from God because we are sinful, and He is Holy.
1 Samuel 2:2 Isaiah 59:2 Romans 3:23 Romans 6:23
3. Because God loves us so much, He made a way for us to connect with Him. That one way is through His son, Jesus Christ, who died so we could have this relationship.
John 14:6 Acts 4:12 1 Timothy 2:5 1 John 5:11-13
4. We must believe which means really trusting Him and living out our belief, not just giving some intellectual nod of approval (see James 2:19), and receive Jesus Christ as our Savior so we can experience God’s love and participate in His glorious plans uniquely designed for each one of us.
Mark 16:16 Romans 10:9 John 5:24 John 1:12 Eph. 2:10 2 Cor. 5:17
Here’s one of my favorite songs to help get this great news across in another way.
Also, enjoy Above All sung by Lenny LeBlanc with film clips from The Passion of the Christ. It’s one of my favorite songs.
