They shall be My people, and I will be their God; Then I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me forever, For the good of them and their children after them. Jeremiah 32:38-39 NKJV
This is the heart of God!
God’s greatest desire is for us to live in loving relationship with Him. That is the reason the Lord created us.
Do you really believe that?
The bible begins with God creating the heavens and the earth and all living creatures. The Lord created the first man and woman in His image and likeness.
God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit, the three persons in whom there is one God lives outside the confines of time. God lived in a perfect loving relationship from eternity past. He created us to be a part of that loving relationship.
God’s creation was ruined by the sin of the first man and woman. They were cast out of the presence and blessing of God. The Lord never relented from His desire for mankind to live in a loving relationship with Him.
God gave us the choice to receive or reject His love. He gave us the option to love Him or withhold our love from Him.
What would you give to live in a loving relationship with the most powerful being ever? What would you give to live in a loving relationship with the only perfect being? What would you give to live in a loving relationship with the only being that knows all things?
The better question is what would this all powerful all-knowing, ever present, perfect being, God, give to live in a loving relationship with you? The answer is His one and only Son!
God sent His Son to live the life of a man and die on a cross as punishment for your sin and mine. Our Heavenly Father made it clear that His desire to live in a loving relationship with you is so great no price is too high to be paid by Him for you!
