Questions God Will Never Ask ~ Closing
Greetings Dear Reader,
We make so many choices about preferences. We choose based on our likes and dislikes. Things that please us draw us to them. People go where they get their needs met. If we think about our favorite diner or dinner it is about the same. We know what we like and are drawn to it.
The idea that there is only one right way to do some things is not part of God’s nature. If we act out of love for the Father and each other most of the rest is a matter of preference. Following Christ is really much simpler than we make it for each other.
We are required to worship out of our love for God. He will never ask why we did it sitting down, standing, or rolling in the aisle. Prayer is necessary. God will never ask why we did it on our knees or in a chair. He will not ask why we used memorized prayers of why we did not.
I have said this a couple of times lately but I will say it again so that I get it. The Father is not surprised by anything I choose. He already knows, already has a response, and is seeking constantly for me to see him in every encounter. There is no moment where he is not there asking me to see his love for me, love him in return, and show that love to my fellow humans.
The perfect will of God is summed up in those three things Dear Reader. Everything else is a matter of choice. In those choices, the Father finds joy in our infinite diversity. Because we have a finite mind, we have trouble getting it around omniscience possessing limitless creativity but it is there none-the-less.
As we travel on from this discussion, It is important to remember it. In it are the seeds to a discussion is still proofing in my warm gray matter. The essence of it is this: Our perception of the Father’s inability to be surprised by our actions can lead us into less guilt and sorrow if we let it. That is the beginning of something that I will get to a little further down the path.
For now, Dear Reader, let us agree that God will never ask us why we made our choices. He knows. He will continue to ask us to get to know him and his love four us. He will ask us to love him in return. He will insist that we love each other through grace, mercy, forgiveness, and service. On this rests all of our other choices. Shall we work at that together?
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a homeowner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
