Why God is Important

Billy Graham, the legendary evangelist  said, “Just look around you, Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil—it has no point.”

 

The Invisible God

The reason it is so difficult to see God and His promises is because our vision is limited to our five senses. That’s a problem humans are born with.

The Promise of a New Covenant

The dialogue between Jesus and the Scribes and Pharisees over a woman who was caught in adultery is a covenant that reveals God's redeeming love to us.

God Will Keep His Promise

Experienced mountain climbers know what to hold onto because falling is costly. Through a far more costly Fall, mankind  lost its relationship with God.

The Good News is that Jesus Christ came into the world and into our lives to rebuild that relationship with God. We rejoice in His coming to Bethlehem but often forget the depths to which He came to lift us up.

"And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself."
–John 12:32

That is the promise He came to fulfill. After He had healed diseases, impairments, and the ultimate violence that hatred can produce, He was killed only to overcome the death of deaths for which we were destined to die.

After all His work was done, Christ ascended to His Father. His disciples, those who had walked and worked with Him, were there to witness His return to His Father. They kept straining to see Him as He disappeared into the clouds. Angels came and spoke to them.

“Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”
Acts 1:11

So let us sing on. "Some day He's coming back, what Glory that will be, wonderful His love to me."

God Came to Dwell in Us

girl reading the bible

When you pick up the Word of God and begin reading, God is having a conversation with you. In that conversation He sent you a helper to guide you into knowing Him through the power of the Holy Spirit. That's how strongly God desires that you come to know Him.

You will find that the Holy Spirit will guide you into the truth about who God is and who you are. You will find in God both love and mercy that this world cannot give.

He has revealed this nature  through Jesus Christ. He was born in human flesh, suffering all that each human being suffers. In this human form God becomes personal.  He comes to dwell within us so that we can  live under Him in His Kingdom, and serve Him in everlasting righteousness, innocence, and blessedness.

We hope that you become a diligent student of God's Word, and will trust the promises He has made to you. If we seek His Kingdom first, then all that we need in order to live here on earth will be given to us by faith.

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
–Matthew 6:33

Getting Involved in Seeking the Truth

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
John 14:6.

How does one come to know that life is to be found in Christ?

God's Word reveals to us who Jesus Christ is. He became human in order to guide us into the spiritual way of life. When He tells us He is the "Bread of Life" or the "Water of Life," He is guiding us through things we know in order to help us to know Him better. His words to us help us to understand that by being baptized into Christ, we are given a spiritual life. With His spirit of love He enters into our  physical suffering bodies with the promise that through faith in Him our physical bodies will be transformed into new spiritual bodies like His.

We invite you to celebrate these glorious promises with us.
