“Singers and dancers give credit to Zion: ‘all my springs are in you!’” Psalm 87.7
God decided, for reasons I still do not understand that we were going to be his temple. God chose us as His children, where He wants to make His home. God made a public commitment that we were His friends.
I realize that my conclusions go against the trend. I know that people a lot smarter than me say there is no God, or that each of us has a god within. I recognize the challenge of understanding an all-powerful God in a world of wrenching pain and suffering. It is difficult to offer definitive proof that my conclusions are 100% accurate. It is problematic to build a logical case that will withstand a robust intellectual argument. The evidence is circumstantial, based on my life and my perspective of world events. My foundation for my belief is my personal experience and the testimony of others of their experiences.
God is awesome and pragmatic. He decided we are worth everything. Given our failure and rejection of the premise of His existence, He sent His son to live as one of us. I do not understand how God became man. I do accept it based on the testimony of others that lived and experienced His life. God became man, lived and died as a man, with one distinguishing feature. He never made a mistake, the perfect life. What were the odds? Who cares? God did it! Because of this, God can give me a gift; a gift based on my belief in what happened when Jesus died. Jesus died and I died in him. I do not understand it all, I just know I stand perfect before God!
I am excited about God for lots of reasons. One is that God’s gift is not just for me, it is for every friend that I love as well as those I don’t! We cannot earn it, we do not deserve it, and that is ok. God loves you and me! It is party time!
