From the Word, came the word that the world was made. Then the prize of the creation was created, you. Well man, not Mann, mankind. We were made to have fellowship with God, to be with him in fellowship. What an interesting thought. Was God lonely? Does he need us just to praise him? No. The rocks will praise him so that can’t be it. Truth is from creation of Adam to the fall, God walked with him. It isn’t recorded that Adam asked God to walk with him God just did.
I love my children and I want to be with them, same with God. We are His creation after all. He wants to be with us. Cursed! God cursed the land! Caused man to sweat while he worked! Work?! What is that? Adam sinned and God can’t be around sin. We sin and cannot be around God. (Thankful for I John 1:9)
God also made a way for us to be in fellowship again with him. Blood! Not just blood, but blood from a lamb. Christ is the Lamb. Perfect Christ shed his perfect blood to reconnect us with the Perfect God.
Born from a virgin to break the chain of sin passed down from man (Adam) Christ is born! He lives perfect and dies perfect, broken and ashamed but perfect. Best part is that when he left, he left us with these words.
“…Wait for the promise of the Father..” “..It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth…” Acts 1
We commit sin. Got it.
We deserve Hell. Got it.
Christ died for us. Got it.
Christ sanctified us. Got it.
Christ says tell others. Got it…wait about that last part?
