I have been writing here for a couple of months now and have wondered if anyone is listening to the message. I know that God has blessed those who have read and I am grateful for that, but I am hoping that somewhere there is someone who will put this into practice in their lives. I know in my heart that God loves you all and wants the best for you, all you have to do is believe in his Son, Jesus and in who He is. To many, this is just too simple and I suppose that is why it is so hard to grasp.
God’s unchanging love for all of us, regardless of nationality or the religion we practice, is evident in that He gives you life everyday! As long as you use it for some purpose other than serving Him, you are serving the enemy of God. You may not worship him (satan), but what you are doing or not doing will go against God if you are not serving Him. Many people think that if they don’t have the “calling” to be a missionary or preacher that they can’t serve God, but that is not true. You can serve Him and His kingdom by doing your normal everyday job with the joy the Lord gives you because you have Him and His Son to guide you.
He is not a task-master who cracks a whip every time you do something wrong, although the spirit within you may convict your heart of it. Some people call this their conscience, but whatever you call it, it is a part of you that cannot be taken away or shoved out of your life. If you don’t have a conscience, I pity you and those around you. God loves all of humanity because He created each one of us. That is why it says in the Bible that “the hairs of your head are numbered” Luke 12:7 and “Aren’t five sparrows sold for two cents? God doesn’t forget any of them.” Luke 12:6
If the Creator of the universe doesn’t forget even the sparrows, don’t you think He cares for you even more? Our lives were put here for a purpose, to serve Him and His kingdom in whatever we do. Many try to find their purpose in life and look in many different places, or books or even jobs. Our purpose is outlined in God’s word, the Bible, if you will take the time and the chance to read it. Don’t read it as a history book, although it is to some extent. Read it with an open mind. Most of the self-help books on the shelves just repackage the wisdom found in the Bible. Their authors dress up that wisdom in modern language, but the message and the meaning is the same. Don’t let another day go by without, at least, giving God’s words a chance to speak to your heart. The Bible was written nearly two thousand years or more before our time but the message is just as true today as it was then and just as relevant.
