And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
There are too many questions to ask about life, God and our existence as a whole. I remember asking myself questions like who created God, who created who created God… and the loop can go on and on. No matter how i tried to ask the question or how well i tried to think about it, i could never come up with a reasonable answer. I believe no one has gotten the answer even now. Anyway, the truth is, our human minds are limited.
Imagine a machine knowing everything about its inventor (creator); it is theoretically and practically impossible because, a created thing does not have the knowledge the creator has, a created thing relies totally on the abundant or limited knowledge of its creator. Same applies to God. It is obviously 100% impossible for any man or any angel to know how God came into existence. It is great foolishness for a man to discard the existence of God because he cannot understand his existence or has never seen him. Psalm 53:1 says ” A fool says in his heart there is no God”.
Another foolishness men practice is to think or believe they can have 100% understanding of the ways of God. This also is theoretically and practically impossible. I have heard people say, God did this, God did that, how can i serve a wicked and biased God… A God who gives life even though he knows the life will immediately be taken away by a bomb explosion. I remember discussing with a lady who had developed so much hatred for “the Christian God”, She said if God knows everything, he knows Mr A will make wrong choices on earth and end up getting destroyed, yet he made Mr A and took pleasure in his destruction. Referring to Pharaoh of whom the bible said “and God hardened his heart”.
We may never be able to explain anything about God, but we can share in his experience, his thoughts, his character, his person by getting closer to him. James 4:8 tells us to draw near to God and he will draw near to us. I was in a conversation with a Muslim one day and i told him God speaks to me. He was surprised and asked to learn how God can speak to him. I spoke to him about having a relationship with God through Jesus. Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me “. If you desire to share in Gods experience, to understand his own perspective about life issues, you must access him through the right channel. Many people have tried to access him through different channels and at the end, they found themselves further away from Him. Jesus is the only way to the God… He came to earth to show us the way.
His hand of friendship is stretched out to Whoever believes in him. Accept his offer of friendship today and begin experiencing true friendship with your creator. Jesus said ” Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”
Can you hear his knock today, do you want to draw near to God, do you need a true friend. Let him into your heart today by making this prayer. Remember he is God, he hears all his creation, he knows all about them, and he is always eager to be with them.
Lord Jesus, thank you for chosen to reveal the father to me. I accept you as the only way to God. Please teach me how to follow you daily. Come into my heart, i confess you as my Lord and savior. May my life from today be a sacrifice to you. Amen!
