Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind. Doth not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat? With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding. With Him is wisdom and strength, He hath counsel and understanding. Behold, He breaketh down, and it cannot be built again: He shutteth up a man, and there can be no opening. Behold, He withholdeth the waters, and they dry up: also He sendeth them out, and they overturn the earth. With Him is strength and wisdom: the deceived and the deceiver are His. (Job 12:9-16)
What He chooses to accomplish will be done, and yet, He gives us the free will to choose Him that our relationship might be one of love and adoration, not forced obedience. Just as Adam chose to disobey and sin came upon all men, so we must chose to trust Jesus Christ and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary for Salvation. Forgiveness comes from GOD, who draws all to Himself, when we repent and reconciliation comes when we believe in Him and trust His Word. Job replied to his friends that GOD is eternal, and yet intimately concerned with His creation. We must understand that we come to know GOD through faith, for He that cometh to GOD must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. He will be found, He is not hiding, He has revealed Himself to us and He wants people to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him out of a heartfelt gratitude for all He has done for us.
His people serve others because of our love for Christ, and our love for those which He has created in His image and died to save. His people love one another because we are members one of another and disciple one another in His Word because of Him who first loved us. His people take the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit to this lost and dying world, that those who don't yet know the Good News of forgiveness through repentance and reconciliation with the Father through faith in His Son might believe and have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
