Have you ever felt left out by all those religious experts who express their personal relationship with God? Not only do they claim to have the inside on the big guy, but also know all the meaning behind the scriptures, generally as well, all of the omens that go with it.
Never mind the more powerful truth that we are to live by faith and are saved by faith and faith alone. Faith involves a power by which we do NOT know, we believe in the absence of anything being there at all, believing in the unseen.
What I am saying is that no one has any more ability to see or be with God than either you or me. In a nutshell, we don’t know Jack.
I have yet to see anyone walk on water, clear out a hospital or even turn water into wine. Nothing as such.
Yet, I have seen the miracles of those who have experienced the changing of the heart as a result of trusting in faith. How powerful! This is where people trust, believe in the good, the love, the forgiveness and grace of God through his Son, the Christ simply because of FAITH!
No, I don’t know any more about God than you do or anyone else. I gather my insight from reading the scriptures and by the testimony and example of other Christians the same as anyone else.
I don’t say I know all those things aside from faith because I don’t. I don’t even have much faith, but the little I have is not a result of myself, but the scriptures proclaim is a gift of God.
Consequently, when feeling inadequate, know that even Moses had a limited experience with the person of God. He wasn’t even permitted to see his face, only His passing Glory.
You and I aren’t Moses, and neither are all the others who claim so much. The truth of the matter is that we simply don’t know.
In the meanwhile, in awaiting on the return of our Savior, Jesus, we are to love, forgive, serve, await in anticipation humbly and in obedience to the written words of Jesus as expressed in the Bible holding onto our faith.
Really, other than that, we really don’t know Jack!
