Faith doesn’t come from “knowing how everything works” or how you are supposed to act! Faith grows in one simple knowledge and growing through the school of life that God has so wonderfully designed for each of us to be able (IF we are spiritual) to rest as the waves crash all about our boat! With that said:
Are you a closet Jew?
How are you helping others see Jesus?
“Now you, if you call yourself a Jew; if you rely on the law and boast in God; if you know his will and approve of what is superior because you are instructed by the law; if you are convinced that you are a guide for the blind, a light for those who are in the dark, an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of little children, because you have in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth— you, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself? You who preach against stealing, do you steal?” – Romans 2:17-21
Ever meet someone who has all the answers about God?
When you do one word of advice- RUN!!
Here is a little secret – God Is Love! Everything outside of that is pretty much Faith! Even though most of the things outside of that just don’t matter!
The more we say God is this way and only works this way and you can’t be that way or God will be angry and displeased with you – the smaller God is!
Here is just one example – when the children of Israel were moving into the promised land God told them when dealing with enemies to kill them all – the women, children, dogs and goats – Is this Love?
God is Love right? Yes those are the only three words I know for sure. So how do I explain it – I don’t! I have Faith and accept that His ways and His Love doesn’t look anything like mine.
Do I know what God wants from me in every single second of my life – well yes He wants Love! Do I know what that looks like? No – and no one does!
Where the arrogance of knowledge is most profound and creates the greatest lack of Love is where people have the least Faith and the most answers.
Jesus did Not come to give us all the answers, He came to give us the only one that matters – Love! And that happened with every breath He took and more importantly in His final act as a person on the cross!
So what am I saying – STOP sticking God in a manmade box of your own creation! He is everywhere and in everything and working through each moment you are breathing – Yes He is that powerful!
Faith doesnt come from what we can see – it comes from accepting what we cant see.
