Does God Exist? My summation of a share By A Reluctant Convert - Marilyn Adamson
A good friend referred me to a site that states reasons to believe God exists. She felt led for some reason to bring this to my attention, and with others as well. I thought maybe this is something the Lord has placed on her heart to share; I have found it to be an interesting read and was inspired to do the very same. I would hope it proved to be a blessing to many others while reflecting on its contents. After perusing this site a few Scriptures came to mind:
"Since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - His eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse" - Romans 1:20.
"But now ask the beasts, and let them teach you; And the birds of the heavens, and let them tell you" - Job 12:7.
"The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands" - Psalm 19:1.
"Hear this now, O foolish people, Without understanding, Who have eyes and see not, And who have ears and hear not:" - Jeremiah 5:21.
"But from the beginning of the creation, 'God made them male and female' " - Mark 10:6.
Not only are there religious deception, wars and rumors of wars, famines, disease epidemics and earthquakes but there is also skepticism and disbelief aside - Does God Exists? There is so much we do not see but there is so much that we do see in the blessings our Almighty God has provided and many have chosen a deaf ear and a blind eye. He has surrounded us with evidence - the earth, water, human brain, the eye; the complexity of our planet, the Universe, Laws of Nature, DNA, the divine attributes and miracles of Jesus Christ - God revealing himself to us; the refuting of non-believers, as believers stand in faith praising His Holy name!
God pursues a love relationship with each one of us. He knows us and he wants us to know him. There is nothing more important than being able to submit to God, agree that our lives need to change and to turn our lives over to him. The greatest evidence of the existence of God are the hearts and lives that have been changed. God works through His children that accepts Him and He uses us for the good of others. I believe it is our responsibility as Christians to share His Word with others despite the differences and the uniqueness of humanity. But it is the responsibility of those to make the right choice to receive and be a follower of Christ. God has provided us with great guidance and direction - the Holy Bible. If anyone chooses not to accept God as our Lord & Savior after receiving Word we, as believers, must not let that discourage (the ones that chose eternal life with Him) us from our walk - becoming complacent, robbing us of the joy, peace and intimacy we were meant to have with the Lord. But we must love the unbelievers just the same; and never give up in sharing as I am encouraged by my brothers and sisters in Christ. The Lord has given us the gift of free-will choice, however God is still in control.
"He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end." - Ecclesiastes 3:11
