The Bigger Picture

Leave a comment

A recent church message gave the impression that God is busy with ‘bigger fish to fry’ in the world than us, and because of this, God may not be attentive to you and me as individuals when we call upon Him. 

God sets out a covenant in the New Testament to be our God and we are to be his people.  This covenant requires us to be ‘born again’ as Jesus states to Nicodemus in the gospel of John.  Born again, by the Spirit of God.  God is omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient.  What God made in creation he made for man.  The earth was made for man.   The Bible says that God keeps his eye on the righteous.  While God is overseeing the affairs of this world he is also aware of every sparrow that falls to the ground. 

We have a God who is aware of us.  Who works in our lives.  Who helps us and teaches us.  He is quite capable of attending to all matters that need his attention globally and to be intimately available to each of his own, simultaneously. God is not a man.  The Bible says that he is Spirit.  And we have been given the gift of his Holy Spirit to be our comforter.

I have been a Christian for about thirty years. Since 2000 I am generally dissatisfied with church as we know it in North America. Today many people seem to be wanting something more real in their lives when relating to God and his Word.
