It is so easy to forget just how AWESOME God is. In our day-to-day lives we tend to take for granted all that He has done and what He continues to do for His creation. Partly because of our technology, we have become desensitized about sin and God. On this last day of March 2016, I want to praise God, The Great I AM, The Lord of Lords Jesus Christ for He is GREAT, HE is OMNIPOTENT, HE is ALL POWERFUL, ALL GLORIOUS, EVERLASTING !
I praise You God for Who You Are: You are eternal, beyond our human understanding, You existed before all things were made and all things were made through You. Just with a thought, a word from You, the worlds, the universes, everything was made. There really are no human words to describe how powerful You are. We humans lack the mental capacity to understand what real power is. It's ludicrous to compare anything of human hands to the workmanship of You All Mighty God. Your signature is on all of creation.
I praise You God for creating this World: You spoke and the worlds and the sun and the moon and the uncountable stars and gravity and the universe came into being. I thank you for the statistically impossible fact that all of this could not have happened by chance. I thank you for creating a perfect earth that is the only planet that can sustain human life. I thank you for creating a perfect position of the world that if we were too far from the sun we would freeze; if we too close we would burn up. I thank you for creating the perfect atmosphere that if the elements for air were off by just a little margin, human beings/animals would all die. I thank You for the change in seasons. For the light that never goes out or needs to be replaced.
I praise You God for creating human beings: I praise you God for creating a perfect human race. You formed skin, bones, complex internal systems, the brain, heart-everything from the dust of the ground! There are not enough pages to thank You for the wonderful human body. The DNA strand that is so amazingly 'organized', The brain that processes over a million messages in a second! I thank you for the brain in which we can reason and think and feel. The eye that can process millions of images in seconds.
I praise You God for Your Love for Your creation: You God are the Alpha and The Omega, The Beginning and The End, You ,already knowing how mankind would reject You, went ahead and created everything anyways. You give good blessings to your creation despite the fact that we Dishonor You, Blaspheme You, Ignore You, Disobey You, Curse You, Reject You and Your free gift of eternal life through Your Son Jesus Christ. Thank you for doing what we could not do for ourselves, by sending Your Son Jesus Christ to die in our place for our wickedness and sinful state, we now can be reconciled to You.
Only God can help a person to truly change. It is the supernatural, mystical help of Jesus Christ that is available to anyone who will believe.
The Good News is there is going to be a Day of Judgment, and God will judge everyone who has ever lived, His wrath is going to poured out on all the wicked and ungodly. Believing in Jesus saves us from the righteous wrath of God. But that is not all, He gives us a new heart and mind NOW, and we receive some of His blessing from heaven NOW and are equipped to be able to live a life that is holy and acceptable to Him NOW.
1. Believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is real, He lived and died and rose from the grave.
2. Believe that you are a sinner, repent-turn from your sins and realize and accept you need Jesus.
3. Confess that Jesus is your Lord and God
4. Find a local Bible preaching church that does obey the commandment for water baptism for the remission of your sins and to identify yourself with Christ.
This is just the first step to a lifelong journey of growing in truth and love with the God who created this earth and everything in it, including every human being that has ever lived.
