Just imagine for a moment that are God; yes the almighty creator of all things. Don’t worry it’s not a blasphemy, you are only imagining. Wow! What do you think?
If you were God, would you allow sunshine to rise on both your friends and your enemies, have plants extract essential parts of “your sun” to make food for those who do want you and those who don’t. Would you let the rain fall for both those who revere you and those who think you are nothing? Just for a moment again, think if you were God.
God made a beautiful earth for us, with trees to provide us food and raw materials; yet we eat with complain, insatiable and never grateful. Seas of water God gave us, providing enough to drink and live by, yet we do not think great of His love. Air we breathe for free and yet many do not think He has done anything worthy of praise. What would you do to man if you were God?
God created His world, Created man and told him how to live on the earth. The creature choose not to do as instructed by the creator, the product choose not the do what the producer produced him for. The product of God had malfunctioned; man was no longer what God had created from the beginning. What would you have done if you were God?
Imagine a father whose kids disobey his instruction or a lecturer whose students did the wrong thing. Or even you when your friends offend you; the taxi driver said something you didn’t like; the car splashed mud on you.
Do you remember your response in all of this case; do you remember how often you changed friends, kept malice, fought and quarrel. We just can’t seem to keep up with each other’s mistakes and short comings. Now imagine you were God. What would you done to all those who offend you , how many times we killed people in our hearts, wished they were dead, used harsh abusive words on people. How many times have you rained causes on people? If you were God, all those you had called names would have been what you called them and those you wished dead would have been dead by now. That likely may include some of the closest persons to you.
The point really is this: how God almighty is so different from us, that if we were God the world would not last, because we would exterminate each other for very small offences. However, God is not like that. He is full of love and compassion.
Man offended God yet He seeks after us as though we didn’t do anything wrong. He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus to redeem man from his pain caused by his own disobedience. God does not give up on people; He has faith in the ability of the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus to save you, no matter who you are, where you are and what you have done or even doing right now.
Romans 5:7&8 Says this: “for scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”. (KJV version)
Yes, if we were God, we may not receive one that has wrong us, sinned against us, but not God! In spite of your faults and frailties, His love for you is unending. To receive God’s love, you have to receive Jesus. He said “for God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son so that anyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)TLB version.
When you receive Jesus, you receive the love God, as you walk in Christ Jesus; you walk in the Love of God and enjoy the great benefits. I am so glad man is not God, and that includes you. So nobody, not even you should condemn you, for God condemned Jesus on the cross on your behalf. Now arise, it’s your day of salvation, take what God has prepared for you. MS
Say this short prayer and it’s all yours:
Dear God, I believe in the death and resurrection of your son Jesus Christ, and I confess Jesus Christ as the Lord of my life. I receive the remission of my sin and eternal life into my spirit, thank you Lord for saving me. I am born-again; I am a child of God. Amen.
