Following and Knowing God

The Almighty God of Abraham is a REAL person! 

He thinks, wills, enjoys, feels, loves, desires, grieves and suffers just as any HUMAN person does. 

God wants to make Himself known to you (His personal name is Jehovah - or Yahweh, by the way.) 

He wants to be your loving FATHER, guide, protector and friend! 

He will never leave or forsake you, and wants your sole faith to lie in Him, and in His Son, JESUS CHRIST.

God wants to be, and should be the only captain of your ship. It's not about your own will, but God's Will! 

We were meant to be LIVING to glorify God. 

This is a God who COMMUNICATES with us through the avenues of our mind, our will as well as our emotions. 

If you want God to ANSWER you, to speak to you, to communicate His Will to you, and to mold you into the person He wants you to be, pray to Him and ASK Him to reveal Himself to you. 

Be open (as well as OBEDIENT to His Word the Bible,) and wait.

It's wonderful to know that you and I were created in HIS Image (our sins excepted!) 

This also means we have so much potential to improve and grow! 

Being made in His image, we also have within us the capacity to really KNOW Him. 

In our sins we lack only the power. Yet, the moment the Holy Spirit quickens us to the REAL life (being born again,) our entire being senses its kinship to God. 

And leaps up in joyous recognition. 

In God and FAITH in Jesus Christ - the Savior and Redeemer of mankind - we literally become a whole NEW creation.

That is also the heavenly re-birth, without which we can't possibly see the Kingdom of God. 

It is, however, not an end, but a journey. The journey being on a rather NARROW AND DIFFICULT road. 

Then follows the pursuit, and the heart's happy exploration of the Will of God, uncovering the infinite RICHES of the Spirit, and ultimately, the eternal Kingdom of God.

Much love,
