Friends forever


Here is the best news ever. The greatest truths are often the simplest and most profound, and it’s hard to get more profound than this: you and I get to be in this universe with God. Whatever happens, this is bottom line. You and I get to be in this universe with God. This transcends economic downturns, depressions, heartaches, sickness and death. We get to be in this universe with God. And we don’t have to wait until we die to realize it. We can realize it now. (Enoch realized this in this life, so much so that he walked right into heaven with God without ever dying! Genesis 5:24) Regardless of what we might be currently experiencing, nothing takes away from the reality that we are permanently, eternally tied to God through the love of Jesus.

Experiencing the universe with God is like stepping through a thin membrane of realization. You’re still in the same place, but everything looks different. That God, the maker of the universe, would want to share what He made with us is one thing. That we, ourselves, are the highest example of that life, is another.

Made like Him to be His companion. “Let us make man in our image,” He had said, and so He did. What greater role in life could there be but to be God’s friend?

He is not a taskmaster, as we thought, or a mean exacter of behavior, as many concluded. He is full of grace and has made full provision for our sin, so that we might be friends forever. He’s done it all with us in mind, so how can we not give him our attention now that we know that?

    Today’s message really says it all. I hope everyone realizes this and we could not have a better friend than our God thru his son Jesus. I cannot imagine one day of life in this world without him. Take care, God Bless, and a great weekend with our best friend now and forever.

    I just want to thank you all for the CD I got in the mail yesterday Small Folks World. I cannot imagine not being a part of the Catch. This is so fulfilling in so many ways. Take care, God Bless, and thank you all so much.
