God as The Essence of Existence

This last Sunday, while preaching on 1 John 2:3-14, Pastor Bobby (of North Shore Community Baptist Church in Beverly South Hamilton MA) hinted on how Christianity (and the gospel) does not offer us just another item to add to the list of activities we already have. He mentioned that for most people, the invitation to a personal relationship with God looks just like that, an additional item on their ‘to-do-list.’

God as The Essence of Existence

Focused on Eternity

For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish. Psalm 1:6

There is a certainty with which the judgement of the wicked is fixed. Those who have found refuge in Christ should be aware of this, lest they fret and are anxious when they see the wicked prosper in their schemes.

He Makes All Things New

Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” Revelation 21:5

For those who have gone through suffering, either as primary or secondary agents, you know how unbearable, and indeed undesirable it is. It wakes up questions that have been slumbering for long, questions you never thought existed, questions that tears cannot drown nor thoughts answer.
