We are to be like God, not as God. We will never be able to match His power and total majesty, but we can emulate His compassion and true passion. To be like Jesus is by far the highest goal that we could ever hope to achieve, and to show His love is the noblest purpose. I have only begun to understand just how truly loving He really is. I have only started to realize just how important His will is for my life and the lives of all humanity. In my life, I do not know what tomorrow will bring, but I do know that He will be the most important part of it. That would not happen if He did not allow it to happen; and, if He chooses not to allow it, then it must be for a purpose that is more important than I. I do not choose to question God’s leadership and direction; I only want to be used to accomplish His divine purpose. Every entity has a purpose and was created for only that purpose. It is God that has chosen to redeem the world and He will see that His mandate is carried out. To be used of Him we must be in complete agreement. To be in harmony, you must be doing what God wants you to do.
Everyone will meet God; you will meet Him as your Heavenly Father or as your righteous judge. That choice has been given to you; you will decide what His relationship to you will be. You cannot escape Him and His judgment; the wonderfulness of it all is that He has given you the option of becoming His child. The awfulness of it is that you will be condemned if you choose not to listen to Him calling you, there is no in-between. It is very easy to get complacent and forget that He has required your obedience. Just because you have chosen not to give Him preeminence does not mean that you have been severed from any type of responsibility or liability. The commandments of God are more solid then the rock that they have been carved upon and they will outlast the many years of eternity. God says that He and His way will last forever, and unless I miss my guess that means that it will never end. We are all accountable to God’s laws, and as He has given us breath, we are all responsible for how we choose to live. My Own Melody, LLC 2006 – 2016 Vision Graphics, LLH
