THE LOVE OF GOD.

For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: In returning [to Me] and resting [in Me] you shall be saved; in quietness and in [trusting] confidence shall be your strength. But you would not, And you said, No! We will speed [our own course] on horses! Therefore you will speed [in flight from your enemies]! You said, We will ride upon swift steeds [doing our own way]! Therefore will they who pursue you be swift, [so swift that] One thousand of you will flee at the threat of one of them; at the threat of five you will flee till you are left like a beacon or a flagpole on the top of a mountain, and like a signal on a hill. And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]! [John 14:3, 27; II Cor. 12:9; Heb. 12:2; I John 3:16; Rev. 3:5.] O people who dwell in Zion at Jerusalem, you will weep no more. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭30‬:‭15-19‬ AMP)

Wow! Can you just imagine the love and mercy of God?

When you’re shutting Him out and running far away from Him, He keeps seeking close after you. And when your own stubbornness has made you an icon of shame, failure, human depravity etc, He was patient enough to follow you close and lovingly to this point, AND ALSO TO DO SOMETHING THAT WILL MAKE YOU SEE HIM, almost like a little child being ridiculously funny trying to get someone’s attention. O Lord My God! And once you turn to Him, once you call to Him, He quickly has mercy on you, He saves you and removes your shame. He glorifies you. Can you imagine this love? The Father’s love is perfect and has nothing in it to make you afraid of coming to Him.

You reading this, you may have come to such a point in your life where all hope seems lost, and tomorrow seems impossible, I want you to know that this is God lovingly making Himself and His love visible to you again. Come to Him NOW!

Jesus Christ is God’s message to you, believe in Him TODAY!

From 1 Timothy 2:5-7

For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time, for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle—I am speaking the truth in Christ and not lying— a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. (I Timothy 2:5-7 NKJV)

There is only one safe place; and only one way to it…Why should we care to recognise God’s agenda for His self-multiplication on earth. Why should we take our cues from Him. We are adventurous by nature, so why not just venture out there on our own and discover life on our own, find out what works for us and make up our own truth and just not care about living up to any standards that aren’t ours.

I think it’s because of the same reason why too many cooks spoil the broth, why there is one steering in a car, one leadership for every organisation, one blueprint for every project and one director on every movie set.
The idea of order is unique to a single view.

If we are reaching for internal tranquility and an external life that is free of agitation, if we are in search of peace on an existential level, then we are truly asking for order from a view higher than all our views put together, encompassing all human experience and with complete understanding of the nature and dynamics of all existence, we are asking for the supreme being, God, who orders all things according to His perfect wisdom and complete knowledge.

Now, there is only one God, His name; Jehovah. And there is only one way to get to Him from our individual human positions, through Jesus Christ. From God is that one “idea”, that one “standard” that can foster the kind of life we seek. Jesus Christ is the go-between for us and God. Like all superheroes, the chief of all superheroes; Christ did give up His own life to wear the shoes of those He came to serve. He put Himself in the line of fire, took the hit for us, proving once and for all that, if we are willing to accept it, the danger is over! We can now come with Him to God and have the kind of life we want.

The life you seek, all that you want, all that you seek. The transcendent fulfilled life you reach for is only Jesus Christ away. He is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to God but through Him. If you want to take that step to Christ and you don’t know how to do it, just talk to a Christian close to you, a pastor close to you, send me an email(edozienwokoye@one3c.com) or call +2348035695961.
O LORD COME SOON.
