The God I Know
I cannot imagine my life without my Jesus. He is my Father, my Comforter, my Protector, my Savior, my Friend. He is my Everything. My Jesus is Love. I could not make it through one day without Him. Twice in the past week I have heard references on TV to God as an "angry" God and it brought tears to my eyes. How could anyone talk about my God that way? And yet I am afraid that many people see Him as just that. A God who is ready to strike at the slightest offense. That is not the God I know. The Bible tells us "that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God,which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." He is a Father who loves us dearly and is ready to forgive and have mercy on us, no matter what we have done. God's love is a gift. A gift He wants everyone to receive. He loves us so very much that He sent His only Son to die for our sins on the cross. If we have accepted His perfect gift, when God looks at us He sees only His precious child through the redemptive blood of His Son. I read a quote once that said, "The question is not- why would a loving God send anyone to hell but why would anyone choose hell over a loving God." He gave His Son so that someday when we die, we can spend eternity in heaven. He loves me, He forgives me. I fail Him every day and yet He continues to love me, with no anger but only mercy and grace. I want everyone to know Him as your Father, your Comforter, your Protector, your Savior and Friend but most of all, I want you to know His love for you. If there are any questions in your heart about where you would go if you were to die, or how you can know for sure that you would go to heaven, please message me. I want you to know today that He is not an angry God, but my God who gave EVERYTHING for you and for me.
