The God View

2 Corinthians 5:15-16 “And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again. So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view…”
Why should I forgive her? Why do I care if he’s sorry? Why would I even bother doing this job? Why, why, why…
A good question in today’s world. Have you ever asked? No, not your boss or best friend. Or even spouse. You know, the one you reamed out for no apparent reason when you walked in the door? No, I’m talking about the one Person that matters most. What does He think?
Or is He only for the good times? Like at church on Sunday morning or with family during Christmas dinner. Dressed in your fancy clothes, or cooking from all hours of the day. Or is everyone important on those days?
But is that just an illusion? Whose attention do you yearn for when you walk through the door? Do you cry for the Father’s guidance, or your own? Is there a difference? How many times has the sin raged in your heart without a petition of forgiveness? And is the Lord the only one you should petition?
So many questions... Have you ever asked Him? What does He think?
The Christian life isn’t just for the pew on Sunday morning, but for every second of every day. We’re under the world’s microscope. Whereas it inspects God’s children for any iniquity to exploit, we must remain vigilant. And take on God’s view.
If you’re willing to listen, He has the answers.
Stand firm, be ready. Rise to the challenge.
