Imagine if there is no religion to fight to fight for.

Imagine if there is no tomorrow; we do not need to save what we have today.

Imagine if there were no poor, we do not need to strive hard to improve our lives.

Imagine if the sunrise did not exist; there would be no life, no days to enjoy.

Imagine if there is no moon to light the night; we will live in darkness.

Imagine if there is no God; we are nothing but the dust of the Earth.

Imagine if we were not here today, who would testify about the truth of the Trinity? As Sons of God, we are part of it—and I claimed it! God is all the glory, and we are one of His many chosen children to be His glory. We should not disappoint Our Father, our God; praise and worship belong to Him alone. Let us be what He wants us to be.

Only God knows how much we love and care for the life He gave us.  

God’s perfection did things to happen for a reason. He allows religion to conquer our minds so we can seek His face and talk to and love Him in many ways. Jesus said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind, which is the first and greatest commandment. Instead of accepting the truth as Jesus had said. Human nature tends to reject it and continue seeking their ways and means; many stick to their own opinion without asking God for His wisdom to understand the proper interpretations of His word.

Our Physical body consists of the Mind, Soul, and Spirit. The Mind executes our decisions; the Soul convicts us when we do something against God’s will and makes us happy when we please Him; and the Spirit gives life. If God gives us His wisdom, it comes with knowledge and understanding. When God created us, it came with a purpose and our longing for Him. “My soul thirsts for God, for the living God” (Psalm 42:2).

Many religious beliefs lead to God, and I admit I am one of the few, if not the most. I received God in my heart for most of my life. If God doesn’t exist as others believe, why do they fear Him? Why do many people continue to seek His face and talk about Him? God exists, and I fear offending Him; I believe that if we keep ourselves in God’s presence, He will shower us with blessings and a peaceful environment.

Why do evil works seem to dominate this world? The evil power to confuse people is like everyday living. Keeping us away from the love of God is a big mistake. It is precisely what the evil does. As the book of Jude said: “Remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their ungodly lusts. These sensual persons cause divisions, not having the Spirit.’ ‘But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” We should maintain our life with God. Let us keep our faith more robust than ever; all these temptations and confusion will flee from us as written.

The Bible warns us not to be like those who “exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator” (Romans 1:25).

He gave us tomorrow so we can have a chance to repent from evil things. ” Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life Jude” 21

God made some rich to help the needy. “Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.” Proverbs 19:17

Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honors him Proverbs 14:31

Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the po r. Proverbs 22:9 

He also made some poor to show His unparallel lo e. He wants the Rich and the unfortunate to take care of each other. We can say that no one is an island. We cannot claim that we are without the existence of the poor. The rich cannot do what the poor can do. The rich let their money work for them,   while the poor work for money. Money can buy many things, but not everything. Any human’s possessions cannot buy God’s love. As written in Luke 12:33,” Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches, and no moth destroys.”

We cannot buy the Kingdom of God with our possession. In Mark 12:41-44 “And he sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large su s. And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a pen y. And he called his disciples to him and said, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering b x. They all contributed out of their abundance, but she, out of her poverty, has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”

Hebrews 13:5  “Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” And Timothy 6:10 says,” For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Through this craving, some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.”

He made the sun to sustain the Earth, the moon to rest after a day of work, and trees to bear fruits, which we can use for food and medicine. He acknowledges all the goodness of His Creations as recorded in the seven days of creation and sets everything up for our needs. What more do we need when everything is at hand? Yet humans have turned their love for money.

The sun is essential to the Earth. Without its heat and light, it would be cold, as the Bible mentions that “God created the heavens and the Earth. The Earth was in total darkness without form and void.” No living things will survive in the cold. The sun gives energy to plants, trees, and other living things, providing food for us to eat and air for us to breathe.

Aside from lighting the night, the moon stabilizes the Earth’s rotation; without it, it will wobble as it rotates. The distance of the Earth from the sun and the moon from the Earth and the sun and the moon are perfect; God’s perfection and supreme power are perfect. How great is our God! We must never doubt his perfect creations.

Imagine if no God did all of these; we would not survive long enough without exception, die, and later turn into dust. What more must we do to prove his supreme power and existence when we already have it all? He gave us enough to witness and handle the truth, yet the power of a mustard-doubting seed can destroy our faith if we are unaware. Let’s use that tiny mustard seed while we still can to move the mountain of doubt and be glad we did.

To God be the glory.
