Summary: do you live, move and have your being in God, with God. how are you treating God?
IN HIM WE LIVE, MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING (ACTS 17:28)
How close are you to God?
Do you move in God, with God?
So where is God? We are told ‘in heaven’, we are taught to pray to our father in heaven, we cannot see Him on earth yet in heaven He is seen in His glory.
Great, so, God is in heaven, many of us would like to think so, hope so, so that He will not see our ways, but hold on does God not say in Jeremiah 23:24 Can anyone hide himself in secret places, So I shall not see him?” says the LORD; “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the LORD.
I mean we know that God contains all time, all being and all space, just think for a second, if we could see God would this place, this earth, our home not be heaven too.
The air surrounds us yet we need it in us to breathe, we do not see it, sometimes it feels damp the same as God surrounds us, are we not supposed to have Him in us as well?
He is above, below, before and behind us all the time, should we then not move, act and even think in God however in saying this, is not every sin already committed in God? We cannot escape out of His presence then out of the air that we breathe. Maybe turn off the light and sin then, but God is in the darkness, He sees through the darkness.
When men of the olden day saw our Lord Jesus in a human body, they saw Him who was God as well as a man. IF we are alive then God is over all, in all, and in us then who are we to say what is ours.
It is His breathe in us, His knowledge, His power. I alone cannot do, however with God I can do all.
DO WE LIVE, MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING IN GOD?
DO WE SEE GOD IN EVERYTHING?
ARE WE IN GOD’S PRESENCE?
Christ has come to lead us back to God, to make us co-heirs with Him, claiming God as our Father, God wants you to know Him, so let us read
Then Paul stood amid Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
Here Paul is taking on the religious ignorant men, telling them that they do not know who God really is, they act so superior, yet they are the same as everyone else. Paul is trying to explain how God has made a way for all to come to Him. If we do not know God, that is our own fault.
The first thing God did was that He created man, us, in His image. (GENESIS 1:26)
There was God, Adam, Eve, and down the line, somewhere the rest of us, so have we not one father. So many people think themselves superior, yet we are all the same, different in our appearances, backgrounds, languages (I am beautiful, yet I don’t know what happened to you guys) but bled, underneath we are all the same.
The bible states that we are all people equally created in God’s image, are all deeply loved by God, we have all sinned, however God forgives all.
The second thing God did was to send His only son to die for all of us.
God did this so that men would seek Him and reach out to Him.
