What is the definition of love? Have you ever been in love? Considered love? Even thought of it?
What would you not give for love? Surprises, gifts, hard earned items? The definition of love is so many things! Check this out!
“For God so Loved the World (His creation), that He gave His only begotten Son (A part of Him), that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
So much to share in so few words. We are not of The family of Israel, but we are co-heirs. We have been given, we receive what was meant to be from the beginning of time. In essence, a part of Him came to turn the Calender back! We have, thus we are blessed. A part of God came and set things right again. In faith we believe, we receive and are blessed, Amen.
This verse is looked upon so many times; what does it mean? As God saw what He made going awry, as He did in the days of Noah, He would not end it all; but rather send a part of Himself to ‘re-start’ life!
With God, there is NO time. 10,000 years is as but a day in His Eyes. For us, we need now and pronto! What will it bring? Happiness, joy, satisfaction or the opposite? Only ‘time’ will tell. It is known! The choice is ours! We were not created with a fixed duty, a proclaimed end! We were given the chance to choose.
As simple as it sounds, one of the greatest proofs of God’s existence is the ability to choose. Materialistic God-deniers hypothesize that all of our actions can be attributed to random interactions of the chemicals, atoms, and molecules that make up our physical bodies. However, they are unable to explain how such random interactions lead to our ability to make all kinds of decisions in life.
Little wonder why when God created man in His image, He put Adam and Eve in a position where they, like God who chose to become flesh in the form of Jesus Christ, had the ability to choose. We are all familiar with the story of how they made a poor choice in eating the forbidden fruit for which God held them both accountable. Think about it! Would God have held Adam and Eve accountable for their poor choice if their actions were the result of random chemical interactions!
Personally, I believe that a desire to avoid accountability is a major reason many people are drawn to a materialistic-atheistic world view. Furthermore, they don’t understand that God created and designed us to make choices.
In the Bible, there are more than 200 references to the word “choose” or one of its variations. This makes it possible for God to fulfill His role as the Supreme Judge of the universe as illustrated in Deuteronomy 30:19 and yet give us freedom to make decisions: “I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live…”
Later, in a New Testament passage, the author of Hebrews warns: “Make sure that you do not reject the One who speaks. For if they did not escape when they rejected Him who warned them on earth, even less will we if we turn away from Him who warns us from heaven” (Hebrews 12:25).
We must also remember that because we have the ability and freedom to choose, our actions have consequences.
This argument can be approached from many angles:
We were created with the ability to choose! As mentioned Atheists have made their choice. We assume there is no convincing them otherwise.
We could go on, simply type on your browser “Atheisn change” as you can see, I did not enter the term Christianity. Some of the readings involve Atheists who do not convert to a Christian “state of mind”, but rather have a change in “School of thought.”
In originally, not being in The family of God, we are co-heirs because THE Creator Loved His creation so much; that He sent a part of Himself to change The World.
