Awake already this morning so I wrote this: Last evening was another session of Kids Connection. Each Wednesday evening, I begin our lesson by talking about one characteristic of God. This week, I talked about God being Omniscient - All knowing. God the creator of knowledge. He knows everything past, present and future. God knows everything about you, your past, your present and your future. There is nothing hidden from God.
Expanding on this - Many can not and do not see God for who He is because of the barriers they live their lives under. These barriers have been caused by sin, both by the sin of society and by personal sin.
Our God created people to have fellowship with Him. He desires that you have a personal relationship with Him. God literally came in the flesh as Jesus the Christ, the second person of the Trinity, to provide a perfect blood sacrifice for the sin of mankind. Jesus paid the price with the shedding of His precious, perfect blood. He came to open the door to provide the only way to become "right before God." Jesus IS our righteousness.
The desire to control our own life and do things our own way is what separates us from God. It has been the problem since creation when Adam and Eve brought sin into the world through disobeyng their Creator God.
Jesus is our way back to God. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life, for everyone who recognizes Jesus as the Savior and accepts Him as the Lord over all of Creation. Each of us needs to repent of our sin toward God and receive Jesus as Savior and Lord. When we do this, the barriers are lifted, and we can enjoy wonderful fellowship with God.
You can have a personal relationship with God through Jesus. The Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity of God, comes to live within you and He changes you from the inside out as you desire and become more and more like Jesus, the perfect sacrifice for sin, the perfect Son of the Living God. God is love and He brings wonderful peace and joy to our souls. There is only One God, the Creator of Life itself.
