The unknown God, the God we don’t know, He is the living God: as the Apostle Paul taught, in Him we live and move and have our being. Even though we don’t know Him, we ourselves are fully known by Him. We are His children; His breath fills our lungs; we are made in His image.
Everything we have: our joy, peace, and health; every blessing is ours through Christ. Without Him we have nothing. But through Jesus, every good and perfect gift becomes ours. For many, Jesus is unknown. We have been given the ministry of reconciliation; the Good News of the Kingdom; to share with an unbelieving world.
God is love. He created love. He gives love. God loves you. The Bible says, ‘This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world so that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.’ (1 John 4:9-12)
The miracle of God’s love is forgiveness. The Scripture teaches as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. ‘Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are your accusers? Has no one condemned you?” “No one, Lord,” she answered. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Now go and sin no more.”’ (John 8:10-11)
God never fails; He cannot fail. Everything He does is a miracle. The day God fails, He is no longer God. It’s His character. He is the God of miracles! We all have many kinds of problems, many different needs, but I believe in miracles. Every act of God is a miracle, because a miracle is something man cannot do. Why did God send Jesus to earth? To prove He has power on earth to forgive sin and heal the sick.
‘And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.’ What a miracle, under the rules of the Temple, Jews had to continually make sacrifices to atone for their sins, but the Bible says Jesus died once to forgive the sin of the world to set us free! God sent His Son Jesus to redeem you and I; and God glorified Jesus by doing this.
