Psalm 25:5 “Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you, I wait all the day long.”
John 4:23 “But the hour is coming, and is now here when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.”
John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Ephesians 4:15 “Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ…”
All of these scriptures tell that God’s Word is Truth. Jesus was and is the Word of God in the flesh, and He came so we could be free from the burden and the entanglement of sin and its consequences. God loves each of us and that is the Truth as well. We can see the results of God’s love for us because we live in a world which exists because He created it for us. God is the Creator and all of the glory of Heaven and the stars which are out there in space tells us of His power and love for us.
Many questions have been asked about why the galaxies spin in such a manner that they don’t fly apart? It’s not dark matter, it is God’s power which sustains the stars and galaxies in their places. The perfection of the placement of our own star, the Sun, and all of the planets have been debated in scientific circles, yet our “modern” scientists won’t accept that God placed our planet at the precise distance and all of the other bodies too.
The truth is that God is sovereign over all. Jesus said that “not even a sparrow falls to the ground without the Father knowing it“. Since God knows even when small birds die, how can you say He doesn’t care for you? He cares for ALL of His Creation including every person on the Earth, even those who don’t believe in Him! Why does God care so much? Because He loves us, each and every person on this little ball of blue in the cosmos!
The Truth is contained within the Bible and if people can’t or won’t accept it, that doesn’t make it untrue. Just because you don’t want something to be true doesn’t change it at all. I would love for it to be a bit cooler in the summer but it won’t be cooler because I want it to be that way. Choosing to not believe a scripture just because you don’t like the implications of it doesn’t make it invalid. Ignoring a command in God’s Word doesn’t erase it from the Bible but it does condemn you in the end.
How? Because, when you are standing in front of God when your life is over here, you will still be responsible for your actions whether you lived by His commandments or not. The way to Heaven and true Life everlasting is only through Jesus. You can’t do it on your own and you can’t add to your salvation by “working” here on Earth to “help” Jesus save you. Read the Bible and study it with prayer and conviction that He loves you. Seek Him out in every verse because He is there.
