📝Giving God Glory... in Spirit and in Truth 5/4
God could have made a perfect world with perfect people who honor and obey Him All the time. These people could be designed and programmed to worship and bow down at His command on demand. We could be like puppets on a string. God could have been like a kid with a doll house, except His doll house was the world.
God wants glory! He loves it!.... but He wants it in Spirit and in Truth and that's why He didn't design a fake world with fake perfect people. He gives us free will.
All throughout history God suffered through His imperfect people...but His suffering shows His patience and faithfulness. Often we think about what God puts us through.... but God goes through the same things we go through as well. What's worse is that He is God... He has All Power to do something about it...but Great is His Faithfulness, Grace and Mercy, the Fruits of the Spirit, LOVE that causes Him to hold back.
He doesn't get His perfect people, perfect worship, perfect praise, like he desires
He gave us everything we need to make it, all the keys for living, He has given us His Word. He has given us access to Him...yet we don't trust Him, we don't talk to Him, Pray, worship, ask, seek, knock...instead we complain, sin, form bad habits to take His place.
we want the promises yet we don't seek the commands
we have access to the promises yet we don't wait patiently for the manifestation, we wander around 40 years instead of 4 days; or even worse we go back to Egypt.
We forget about God, and the fact that He could consume us; turn us into pillars of salt for looking back ( not trusting Him)
We forget that God Could cause us to go All the way; but then not let us in the Promised Land
We forget that God could dry up our lands, or send the rains or plagues... just because He's God and He grew weary of our murmurings as an individual or as a nation.
Throughout Biblical History; God demonstrated Who He was to individuals and to nations. . We are not just individuals who are called to serve and worship God; but we are a nation. There were probably individuals in those nations that were serving, trusting, loving God, but the whole nation was destroyed. Not just those who were living in sin. We must not forget that and submit to God as a nation of people. We can't focus just on ourselves or our corner of the world. Jesus commanded that we must Go out into all of the world. Thank God and pray for the missionaries and those who send them. We who cannot go must pray outside our family, church, city, state, country, continent.
Throughout Biblical History; God put up with a lot of stuff. Stuff that He already knew would happen. Curses, worshipping of false gods and idols, whole nations turning against Him, sin, people forgetting how He blessed them. But why? He could have made it all stop, made them perfect people who gave Him all honor and glory.... but He didn't. because He loved the people after them and wanted them to have a free chance. He wanted them to have an example. He loved the generation after that, and that one, and so on. He loved us! For God so loved the World!
God does not want to control us or manipulate us into living right or giving Him glory just so He can feel good. God is not like man. God loves us... and His love allows us to submit to Him.
He loves us so much that He sent His son to die for our sins, and His death and resurrection gave us victory over sin... sin has no power over us! His death and resurrection cleansed us from all unrighteousness. Although we may sin... We don't have to! If we sin, we have access to God to ask for forgiveness,repent and turn away from sin. By his grace and mercy He is just and faithful to do just that. We can walk in the power of the Holy spirit to go and sin no more! However, if we sin We have one who forgives us.
So just as Christ could have called 10,000 angels, God could have/could grow weary and call this whole concept of a world filled with people off. He could just had angels bowing before Him... but God loved us! Let us remember that as we give Him the Honor and Glory and Praises and Offerings and Worship that He deserves while we still have the opportunity! For there will come a time when this earth and all that dwell within will pass away. At that time Every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord, but only those who worshipped in Spirit and in Truth will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.
