But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us. (Romans Chapter 5, Verse 8, Amplified Classic Edition of the Bible)
Against the backdrop of topics covered in recent weeks on God’s Grace, Mercy, Faith and Rest, we continue this journey of understanding the importance of knowing the Father and the Son. One of the ways is to see God’s nature and character in action in His Word. In this program we look at the Father’s heart in several situations and how His longsuffering continues with us to this day.
In recent weeks we have been understanding some of the promises of God, as well as His nature and character, in order that we may realize how we can easily trust Him because He is faithful and has kind intentions in His heart. We have been talking about God’s grace, our undeserved favor from God, and his mercy, His punishment withheld from us. Today having this trust and faith in God that He is good, that He does not want to harm us but only love us and grow us, we look at the blessing and promise of His Rest.
During these challenging times of sickness and disease in the world, or whatever troubles you are facing, we need to make the decision to not live in fear or worry, but to listen to God instead of moving away from him for one more day. God is always speaking to us, but are we holding a conversation with him? There is no relationship without communication. God has paid an extremely high price to allow us to be reconciled back to Him by believing in His Son Jesus and confessing him as Lord.
