Is He Taboo or For You?
There are many hot topics that people find themselves engaged in, but perhaps the oldest of the hot topics is GOD. Today, I want you to think twice about God, but not in relation to His existence. I put myself in the category of an honest- thinking person, therefore the existence of God is already a settled issue. So let’s think for a minute about the presence of God.
Look at the nations of the world. Do you see a distinction in those who hail the existence of Jesus Christ? At least they began that way. I see hospitals, schools and charitable organizations of all kinds. But I see them lacking in places where there is no Christ.
Where does love come from? Did it evolve, beginning with the sands of the sea and then found itself in the first ameba? Does an ameba love? What if love exists because God exists? God is love and we love because He loves us.
Consider your own life. Have there been times of worry, anxiety or fear? What did that do to you? Did you have a way to cope? What was your hope in? How did it work out for you? One man said, “A man’s concept of God creates his attitude toward the hour in which he lives.” (G. Campbell Morgan).
As God is removed from our culture, do you see a downward spiral in the quality of life for Americans? Oh, I don’t mean the ability to buy the things they want, but the ability to have hope, joy and confidence in the future. A relationship with God, and only a relationship with God, can instill that which a person needs to live a fulfilled life.
Finally, the best thing to do if you do not know God is to talk to someone who does. I mean, they know Him through His Word and their faith is their surety in life. Ask them the difference it has made in their life and then, think twice if it would make a difference in yours.
Some Helps To Discover God For Yourself
1. Look at the creation. It is perfectly balanced and divinely designed.
2. Ask yourself if there is a purpose to life and if so, what is it?
3. Inquire about the most important subject in life.
4. Ask yourself why there is such an attack and God and His Christ today?
5. Truly desire to know and He will reveal Himself to you.
