WHY DID HE
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
Genesis 1:1 KJV
God created the heaven and the earth. Why did He create them? He knew that His beloved Son was going to be beaten beyond recognition, cursed, spat on, rejected and ridiculed. So why did He create the heaven and the earth? God is God and He needs nobody or nothing but He desires fellowship.
If God desires fellowship so much that He created the heaven and earth, how much more important it is for you and I to fellowship with one another. Someone made the comment “I don’t need anyone or anything”. That is not a true statement. We need to encourage one another and pray for each other.
May God help us to lead others to Jesus by our loving words and actions. The desire of my heart is that others will always see and hear the unconditional love of Jesus for them in my actions and in my words. If you know someone who is hurting, encourage him or her. Let others see Jesus in you.
We read in the Bible. “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16). Are we allowing the light of Jesus to shine so God will be glorified? May we become lighthouses for Jesus and bring glory to our Heavenly Father.
