Good Morning April 3

Statistics have shown that a very high percentage of people believe in god. But god is a very general term. It can mean almost anything. Even the devil is called the god of this world.(2 Corinthians 4:4) The only true God we know has been revealed to us in Jesus Christ. In the very beginning of his Gospel the Apostle John declared “No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.”(1:18) God has created us and wants to be known by us. He is a real and personal being with a plan and purpose for the people of His creation. Yet we are separated from His absolute holiness and perfection as a lump of clay is from the potter.(Jeremiah 18) God can only be known in the person of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus said of Himself, “he who has seen me has seen the Father.”(John 14:9) So we do not worship a god however we might conceive of him, but the only true God who has revealed Himself to us in His Son, Jesus. He is the One who is the center of our life.
