Behold, the heaven and the Heaven of heavens is the LORD'S thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is. Only the LORD had a delight in thy fathers to love them, and He chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as it is this day. Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked. For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward:
Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; Him shalt thou serve, and to Him shalt thou cleave, and swear by His Name. He is thy praise, and He is thy God, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen. (Deut. 10:14-17, 20-21)
God is God alone and worthy to be praised. He is creator of all that is, and all earth, the sea, and the sky to the very Heaven of heavens is His. The mighty creatures in the waters and on the land were made by Him and yet man is the crown of His creation and care. Of all the mighty nations on the earth He chose Israel to show Himself mighty on their behalf, not because of their mighty or power but because He is God and because of Abraham’s faith. God called Israel to walk in all His ways and serve Him as the people of God. The mighty God who made all things and has done wondrous works would continue to preserve, protect, and to provide for Israel as long as they loved Him and kept His Commandments.
God’s ultimate provision for His creation is the sacrifice of His Son for sin that whosoever will might repent and have eternal life by faith in Jesus Christ and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary. The Son of God who is God the Son put on flesh and became a man that we might put on His righteousness and be born again and that one day all creation might be redeemed from the bondage of sin. Our faith in Christ frees us from the penalty of sin, not to sin more or all we want to, but that we might walk in newness of life the life which He wants us to live in Him. His Spirit frees us from the power of sin that we might glorify Him as we walk in His ways and keep His Commandments, not by ritual or works of the flesh, but following the Spirit of the Law until the Father calls us Home and we are redeemed from the presence of sin.
God has sent those who are His and know Him out into this world to reach the lost that they might be saved from sin. He desires that His people strive to be holy and obedient unto Him that we might minister to those around us who are hurting and in need as He provides. We serve others, equipped with the Word of reconciliation and righteousness, rightly divided and fitly spoken, that they may see Christ in us, the hope of Glory. Our God has commanded us to love one another with an unfeigned love, even as He first loved us, and to disciple one another in the Word of God so that we may all grow in grace and in the Knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Our Lord has commissioned those who are His with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to go where He sends us in the power of the Holy Spirit. As we go, we are to proclaim the Good News of forgiveness through repentance and reconciliation with the Father through faith in His Son, that those who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah of God might have life in His Name.
God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should 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 faith in Christ and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary 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.
