Good Morning February 6

For Christians Jesus is the center of life. We do not believe in a general god, an impersonal force, a generic being far removed from daily life. The God we know is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He has revealed Himself to us in His triune nature as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is the Creator, the Redeemer, and the Sanctifier. That means it is He who has made us. He has gone to the most extreme lengths to save us from our sins. And He continues to work daily to bring us more deeply into His life. This truth never ceases to amaze me. Why would God be this way? Why not the capricious deities of the Greeks and Romans, or the Force in Star Wars? Much of the ways of our God are hidden to us. Even so, what we do know is more than sufficient for all of this life. In Jesus Christ we see a self sacrificing love that has come to do for us all that we are incapable of doing for ourselves. In the light of that love we have peace, and can leave the rest of our questions for our Lord’s Kingdom.
