“God is a spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24 ) God is the invisible spirit of love that created everything out of nothing. “No man has seen God at any time.” (1John 4: 12a). No man could survive seeing God and standing in his presence in the flesh. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me.”(John 14:6). “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men,whereby we must be saved.” ( Acts 4:12). Love is what everybody wants, and is looking for, and can never get enough of. God made us insatiable,or unsatisfiable that way.“As the heart panteth after the waterbrooks, so panteth my soul after thee o God.” ( Psalm 42:1). Does your heart thirst after God as a thirsty deer who has been running through the woods thirsts after a cold drink of water from the brooks and streams? ” God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” (I John 4:16b). So if you want more love and more of the life of God, get more into Jesus, and his Word. Jesus is the Word of God. “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14). Jesus and his Word are the secret to love, strength, life, happiness, power, joy, faith, and peace. “Whom having not seen, ye love: in whom though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.”(1 Peter 1 :8). ” lt is he that sitteth on the circle of the earth and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:” ( Isaiah 40:22). This verse tells us that the earth is a circle. It was written over 2000 years before Columbus discovered that the earth wasn’t flat, but a circle. Can you imagine being taught all your life that the world was flat, as everyone believed at that time, and if you went to far you would fall off the earth into oblivion? One day Christopher Columbus read this verse, and legend has it that this scripture in Isaiah gave him the courage and faith he needed to launch out on his epic voyage to discover the new world, and bring the Gospel to the Americas in 1492 A.D. Lord may we have that same adventuresome spirit that drives us to seek after you and your love as the early explorers who sought out strange new worlds to explore..
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
