If you were in a class, Philosophy 102, it would probably not be long before you would be asked questions such as these: what are we here for, where did we come from, what is our purpose, and where are we going. Life’s great mysteries! God says, “Lean not to your own understanding, my ways are not your ways.” So He is likely not going to explain to you what “nothing” is since our brains mostly only think “space” instead of nothing. I don’t even want to take Physics 1! Those things are too big for my brain.
In the spiritual realm also, that’s the way God is. God has given us the basics in the Holy Scriptures. That is called the milk of the Word. God so loved the world… By faith we are called to believe on Jesus Christ, his birth, his death, his resurrection. There are a lot more interesting things we can know, called the meat of the word. But you need not blow out your brains because your teeth are not strong enough to chew steak.
He will give you enough answers to help you find peace as you snuggle down in his pleasure, knowing you came from God and you are going back to God.
This is so true. The Bible is not written only for the scholar but the average person. As we grow up in our faith we can feast on the meat and potatoes. That’s why it’s so awesome. The basics are all we need. Simply put John 3:16
That scripture is number one in teaching the gospel. Verse 17 is basic also. It is not in the heart of a loving Lord to see anyone be lost. Price was high but it was paid. Now just ones’ stubborn will keeps him from the Prize.
True, He will give us according to what we are able to accept. But we should be willing to accept it. 😉
There are people who would pay a high price for this free gift, IF they could still just go about being a slave to themselves.
Sweet! That’s a great picture of you, too.😊
Thank you. The basic is Jesus. Let’s stick to him. I’ll see you by his side.
Your time is important and I value your taking time to respond. Thank you.
Amen and amen! I became lost – in high school and college. I began to ask all those questions-and God sent two angels to tell me HisStory! Born again that day.
But just like the Israelites, I wandered off course. God let me find my way back into a pig pen….Then through HIS Word, I returned to Him! Hallelujah!
Out of the field, into the pigpen, then into the Father’s arms. I’m glad your journey was completed with your safe arrival home.
