Christian Seekers of Truth (Knowledge and Acceptance).
To fully reveal our relationship with the Father, we must first know ourselves, or the person who wishes to understand himself thoroughly must draw near Christ. The Redemption that took place on the cross has fully restored humanity’s dignity and reclaimed the meaning of their lives in this world today.
Faithful Christians undeniably have knowledge unfolded to them during their acceptance to be part of the body of Christ. Without a single dot of doubt, the indwelling of the Holy Spirit began, and having said so, we may experience the baptism of the Holy Spirit with fire. By that experience, it means that whatever is revealed to us is of great importance and that the presence of God through His Spirit is now at work with His saving grace to our souls.
It was in Him that He allowed the things to be known, hence, the knowledge in which the Son accomplished his mission of saving the world from sin. God so loved the world that His will was to keep it, and the Son did what He was supposed to do without pressure from the Father. We know that the Father and the Son gave the extreme gift—his (Jesus’) life.
He who loves God is known of Him because love decided to work. As to the question itself, who is love?
Since such a question had arisen, it was evident that love conquers all; nevertheless, the testimony of the conscience could not fully understand even with the help of spiritual intelligence. No idol can have the power and authority to interfere with God’s decision.
As Paul said in Romans 11:33, NLT: “Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible for us to understand his decisions and ways!” Romans 11:33, CSB: “Oh, the depth of the riches, both wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments and untraceable his ways!”
Matthew 6:33 gives us a pointer; it says: “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
We are commanded to seek God’s Kingdom and His righteousness first. This shows how important we are to His will and purpose. Going back up for the whole purpose of Mathew 6 concerns our worldly situations; we are so busy with overwhelming offers by the world, like worry, temptations, and anxiety. Are all of these good? Of Course not!
Jesus was concerned about the world at that time and the world to come, which is our time; we are too distracted, and our focus on peaceful living is being diverted to worries that lead to anxiety and a restless mind. Instead of dealing with it, we should not prioritize those distractions but instead refocus on the passage with a promise that when we seek Him first (acknowledge) His presence in our life through the working of the Holy Spirit within us, He will give us exactly what we need. We can trust Him because when He says it, He will do it!
When we reject worry and anxiety, it allows us to flee from all of these, just putting God’s kingdom first in our minds. The kingdom of God, as interpreted in many different approaches, will only make it more confusing, but if we deal with the kingdom of God as the government of God, we may see and feel it easier to comprehend. Rules from the King govern domains, so God’s kingdom is ruled by God and administered by the Son of Jesus.
Without a doubt, idols are powerless, and their existence depends only on the mind of men and not on the heart. There is but one God, the Father, and one Lord, Jesus Christ; Lord God, the Father, and Lord Jesus, the Son of God. And the Sons of God, the partakers of the Father’s divine nature. He who has a strong will to combat the challenges within our domain and defend the kingdom will be rewarded with his throne under the kingship of the mighty Son, the King of kings. With a lack of knowledge and understanding of how the kingdom works, we must know how the church works in its body.
Jesus will do his last act when every enemy, including death, is put under his feet, and the Son will submit to God the Almighty Father so that the Father will be all in all. So, likewise, The Father will give the Son complete control of all the kingdoms and be called the King of kings and Lord of lords. When this happens, there will be no more worries, temptation, or anxiety; there will never be any more remembrance. Our Father, who is love, graceful and merciful, will grant us an enjoyable life eternal to follow the four-letter word, and we will make it there- LOVE.
Love Him and love one another Is the only commandment since He handed the law to Moses. Unfortunately, many Christians diverted the real meaning that we are no longer under the law but under grace and ignored the Ten Commandments given to the Israelites. The commandments are about love, and Jesus modified them for us to understand them easily.
If we are going to define love, maybe we can hastily respond it’s a feeling. Feelings are souls’ attributes, and we need to be in the Spirit to express our love for God. These are the feelings you must also seek.
Our God is love. He is good, and He is a Spirit. He has a son named Jesus, who loves us so much that he gave up his life to save the world (sinners). God is our Father that made us be the brother, daughter, and mother of the Son Jesus. Jesus said we have to follow the will of the Father for this relationship to take effect. When we communicate with the Father, we must be in Spirit. When we seek His righteousness, it must also be in Spirit. Everything about Him must be dealt with through our Spirit to His Spirit. How will we do that? The Father desires that we draw close to Him as we desire to draw close to Jesus. —He promises to draw close to us—James 4:8, We should not compare the level of our desire to seek Him with any material things and even with the Spirit of darkness such as witchcraft, sorcery, and others, and in return, He will never forsake us.
When tough times are getting more challenging, when temptations are getting to your nerve, when goodness seems so far away and becomes worrisome, remember to check the kingdom’s rules to see if you are still in line or already out of bounds. But, when you are still in the boundary of the goodness and righteousness of God, rest assured that nothing will harm you. It will come to pass like a wind blowing dirt away from you.
