Summary: That's what we are..When we display our so called righteous deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags. Nobody, except for God, could still love us..in that condition because His Love isnt based on Anything to do with us at all..
Psalms 95:6-7 MSG
So come, let us worship: bow before him, on your knees before God, who made us! Oh yes, he’s our God, and we’re the people he pastures, the flock he feeds. Drop everything and listen, listen as he speaks: “Don’t turn a deaf ear as in the Bitter Uprising, As on the day of the Wilderness Test, when your ancestors turned and put me to the test. For forty years they watched me at work among them, as over and over they tried my patience. And I was provoked—oh, was I provoked! ‘Can’t they keep their minds on God for five minutes? Do they simply refuse to walk down my road?’ Exasperated, I exploded, ‘They’ll never get where they’re headed, never be able to sit down and rest.’”
Has your patience ever been tried?
This scripture..gives you just a little insight as to maybe what God thinks..
Funny thing is..here we are thousands of years later, and mankind is more hardheaded now than ever...And it makes you wonder if God still thinks the same thing.
As I observe in my daily routine..I can see the same thing
Can’t they keep their minds on God for five minutes?
Why do they simply refuse to walk down His road?’
They’ll never get where they’re headed, never be able to sit down and rest.
It's no wonder why there is so much stress and unrest in the world
And when you wonder why God is so patient with us..
Only One answer comes to mind..
Because Of His unending Extravagant Love for us!
Only Gods Love could endure so much..and receive so little in return.
Created the world
Created the Cross, forgiveness, favor, mercy and the way of relationship to Him
Love created a plan..the plan of salvation
Which entails every good thing in it..every promise..every declaration
He ever put down on paper..
And whether you chose to accept it or not..
Does not diminish His immense love He will
Always have for you..
1st John 4:7-10 MSG.
7-10. My beloved friends, let us continue to love each other since love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and experiences a relationship with God. The person who refuses to love doesnt know the first thing about God, because God is love, so you cant know him if you dont love. This is how God showed his love for us: God sent his only Son into the world so we might live through him. This is the kind of love we are talking about not that we once upon a time loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to clear away our sins and the damage they've done to our relationship with God
This is how God showed his love for us: God sent his only Son into the world so we might live through him.
Sad thing is..there are more people in existence than ever at any time in history..
And it seems as though..never fewer living the life God has designed for them..
Unconditional Love, comes from God and the love God offers, is the only thing that can fill the void in our lives
The I just know and feel like theres something missing in my life void..
the void that everyone has...but not everyone is willing to admit!
They fill it with everything else but God..
And they just bounce around hitting one wall of disappointment after another
After another, after another..
Their condition is Miserable at best..but they just can't seem to find their way to the forgiveness and freedom that God freely
Offers to all will accept it!
While you might find temporary fulfillment of love through people and material things and self gratification..
there is no true fulfillment in life without the love of God.
you can't earn it, buy it, or win it, yet it flows freely..nonstop to all who will receive it
He does not love you because of who you are..
if He loved us because of who we and what we truly are, would He even want to love us?
Isaiah 64:6 NLT
We are all infected and impure with sin.
When we display our righteous deeds,
they are nothing but filthy rags.
Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall,
and our sins sweep us away like the wind.
That's what we are..When we display our so called righteous deeds,
they are nothing but filthy rags.
Nobody, except for God, could still love us..in that condition
because His Love isnt based on
Anything to do with us at all..
Thank God, that He loves us, because of who He is and not because of who we are!....and we can find sweet rest in that very fact,
