For the man that lacks self control, doesn’t know how far he will fall. For the rise of any man comes with an ample amount of control over oneself and his or her own actions. God gives man the moral compass to intuitively know whether they are morally sound or morally corrupt. What good is a man that trades his honesty of self for things he can’t take with him after this life anyways? Is it really worth it, or is it literally just a morally stagnate self lying to justify actions and behaviors ambiguous of divine soundness? The man that thinks he can rise to the top of his industry or in life by stepping on the backs of others is a believer of folly because the cut throat view will eventually lead to their demise. Understanding that each of us was endowed with seeds of morals from our heavenly father can be the first step to understanding that love of God will lead to the love of others through that process. That is definitely something worth perpetuating. What does this all really mean if god is not first and for most in someone’s life? “Meaningless! Meaningless! says the Teacher.?“Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.” Ecclesiastes 1:2. Is life really meaningless with out gods presence in our lives? Man has always had the instinct of a higher power, and the bible speaks of that, “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, \"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life\"’ John 8:12. Jesus is the “light of the world” and with him in your heart will cast out all darkness. Darkness?? What am I suppose to be afraid of the boogy man….ooooh! But understand that darkness is anything that takes you farther from God, and that darkness always leads to death. “Please, I have done some scandalous things in my past that didn’t kill me,” maybe so, but things like sex out of wedlock or stealing and cheating led to deaths in relationships, jobs, and that is the death I speak about. Christians believe that Jesus was brought to earth to pay for mans sins with his pure blood being spilled, and by believing in Jesus being the son of God will rid all darkness from ones life. This is not a magic trick though, no hocus pocus here! But by believe in Jesus and loving him that is what detours you from sinning constantly, and slowly he works to mold you into a more virtues individual. “Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for noble purposes and some for common use?” Romans 9:21. Then why do Christians sometimes stubble into addictive behaviors and narcissistic thoughts of “it’s all about me” mentality?
ATTENTION ATTENTION, READ ALL ABOUT IT! “Man has discovered that he is God,” it might not read verbatim in our news like that but close enough. Who needs God when we have science or all these \"explanations?\" In a time were man has unlocked concepts in modern medicine on how to make man’s life longer, were man has unlocked concepts on how weather systems work and how to predict its behavior, were man has unlocked concepts into making life easier with technological advances unheard of even just a few generations ago. With all these advance understanding comes a sense of arrogance that maybe God isn’t as “amazing” as they want us to believe. Maybe if there is an explanation for these technological advances, then maybe there is an explanation for God?
In the garden of Eden were Adam and Eve first lived before the fall of man, a serpent approached Eve to explain that she could have knowledge into God’s internal workings by eating from the forbidden tree of knowledge. We all now the story quite well, but it was that sense of “ME” mentality that led to the fall of man. For man to think that he can make a slight peak into the recipe of life, and to think he has it figured out is that sense of arrogance I was talking about. Have you ever goggled a famous recipe from a favorite restaurant or famous chef? Then you find out what exactly was in it and then you have the sense that the restaurant or chef’s status was lowered just a little bit in your mind. This is because you can make it now, so they really aren’t as great as you thought before. This is the same thing with peaking into how God created the heaven’s and earth, our scientists think they have it all figured out, so why do we need a God anyway?
As I was explaining before, “life is meaningless” without God’s presence in an individuals life because it is what is inside of you and what is inside of me that desires to have life make sense, and have an overall purpose. If you were really put here on this planet by accident, then why do you have this moral compass that guiding your behavior? Why do you have a tug on your heart to seek something higher then yourself? It is your heavenly father calling to you for a relationship because you were put here to fulfill a purpose that might not always make sense, but a purpose that was mapped out for you to make complete. God is here to rid the darkness from your life and he calls for you to know Him, because to know Him is to take refuge in Him. Like a ship at sea on a foggy night, and a horn blares in the distance to signal the right direction to lead, same to is your heavenly father calling to you.
Feel his tug heart pulling you closer to him, hear his horn ringing for you, because it is there for you to take refuge but will you go. That is up to you! “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
