THE ONE TRUE GOD! 5-18-2014

“Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge!  How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways!  For who can know the Lord’s thoughts?  Who knows enough to give him advice?  And who has given him so much that he needs to pay it back?  For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him forever! Amen. (Ro.11:33-36 NLT)

This is the conclusion after the apostle Paul explained how God was dealing with the nation of Israel and all the nations.  He was amazed at God’s wisdom, showing his mercy and care for all mankind. “Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.” (Ps.90:2 NIV)  “Your throne was established long ago; you are from all eternity.” (Ps.93:2 NIV)  This one true God is eternally God. He lives in eternity. He never had a beginning and will have no end.  I have no concept of a being who has no beginning. It does not register, because I am a person of time.  He is God eternal.

It is so easy to limit God. However: “The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.  He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.” (Is.40:28 NIV)  He created the universe and keeps all in place.(Is.40:26)  

He is the one who has expressed his love for mankind. Man, who has gone his own way. (Everyone has turned to his own way. All have sinned). He sent his Son to live among us, and then die in our place, paying the full penalty for our sins. Now he asks us to trust his love in Christ and follow him.  There is nothing better than this. HIs way is eternal life!
