Knowing our Creator

Have you every thought seriously about the awesome gift that we have in being able to know and be known by the Creator? The One Who spoke everything into being before He personally formed mankind from the dust of the earth!

But, you know what else is fantastic? He actually came to earth to die for our sins, not just the sins of those in Israel or those in the world at the time that He was born, but for us and all of us in the past two thousand years as well as those until the time that Jesus comes back.

There is a scripture that I want you to see from the apostle Paul:

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.Romans 8:1-2 (KJV)

If you have given your life to Christ, Who is the Creator, you are not condemned because your sins have been forgiven already, all that you have to do is believe in Him and the sacrifice that He gave for you. Our Creator is the only Savior or God Who has come and sacrificed Himself for all of us!

Muhammad, Krishna, Buddha, whichever one you wish to name, none of them sacrificed themselves for their believers. No man-made god has ever done anything even close because they can’t! The only real God is God. Our Lord did so much for us and yet there has never been any other that can do what He has done in the past or is doing now.

We have God’s grace given to us every day because we have everything that we need to live. I don’t mean that we have all of the money that we need or a big house or a fancy car, but we have air, water, food and a place to live! God gives us our talents as well as our jobs so we are able to live our lives and provide for our families.

God, His Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit all work in tandem as One. They have different functions, but they are God yet God the Father is in control. He knows when things will happen, how it will happen and who it will happen to. God loves us and allows us to have our choice in our lives and  He will not force His will on us at all, but we have to choose to follow Jesus and believe in His sacrifice for our sins in order to be saved and go to Heaven.

Belief in God doesn’t do it. Satan believes in God, he knows God and Jesus but he won’t serve them and won’t bow to them. Knowledge of God and His Son, Jesus, is not enough! You have to give your heart to Jesus and believe that He died for your sins and choose to serve Him.

Keep it simple, silly!

The principle and the message in the title is simple but our lives are not. What problems affect you and your everyday living? Bills coming due, the loss of a loved one, a sick child, all of these are upon the whole of the world regardless of the country you live in or your financial condition. How can we cope with the problems that we face everyday? Who will comfort us and show us the way to go in times of trouble?

The answer to all of these questions is Jesus. I know that there are many people who really don’t like that answer, but He is. In our lives, we have pain and doubts from physical as well as emotional problems but the only person that we can count on to be there when we need Him is Jesus. I know that many people say that is just a crutch or even a fairy tale but the prophecies contained in God‘s Word are true and most have been fulfilled. The only ones that have not are the ones concerning the end of the age and it isn’t time yet.

When that time comes, everyone will see and know Who is in charge. They may not like the outcome, but if you decide to follow Him before that day you will be a winner! Nothing that we have or get in this life goes with us when we die but the decision to follow Jesus or not determines your eternal destination. Think about it.
