A Living, Active God

on Sunday 18, July 2010

Our God is real, living, and actively involved with His creation.  He is not like any of the other gods, deities, or “isms” that are available today, whose followers claim to have the truth.

Everything that God is and everything that he created was for us and with us in mind.  He has invited us to “enter into the celebration of his lavish gift-giving by the hand of his beloved Son.”  (Ephesians 1:6, MSG) 

When Elijah challenged the disciples of Baal, he taunted them by saying that perhaps their gods were asleep or on vacation.  Our God never sleeps! Even though it may sometimes feel like he has distanced himself, he has not.  He has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

This constancy of his love and passionate care for us gives us hope and invites us to “engage in this glorious life, and the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him and his endless energy and boundless strength.”

Our God is in charge!  He reigns over galaxies and governments.  No power or force is exempt from his rule.  We are His children, and He daily provides His wings of protection over us.  In fact he says, whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye.  What a great and awesome God we serve.
