Because of the many unfortunate events that are happening around us, many think that our Creator is somehow on a vacation and has left the inhabitants of the earth do their wickedness unnoticed.
But the fact that the Son of God came to this earth to give us a sure escape from the certain eternal death and oblivion should always remind us that our God really cares.
Jesus left the comfort and luxury He enjoyed in the presence of His Father to be born in a stinky manger, humbled as a slave, and ultimately, crucified on the cross just for you and me. That’s the love, mercy, and grace that only God can do!
“Money cannot buy it, intellect cannot grasp it, power cannot command it; but to all who will accept it, God’s glorious grace is freely given… For sinful men, the highest consolation, the greatest cause of rejoicing, is that Heaven has given Jesus to be the sinner’s Saviour.”
“It was not for Himself, but that He might break the chain that held the human race in slavery to Satan.” Our Father Cares, p. 209
God provides the Comforter
As soon as Jesus ascended back to heaven, the Holy Spirit was sent to guide the believers.
“…You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8 KJV
The Holy Spirit continues to work in us until all the redeemed are fit for heaven. Every day we can see and experience God’s care over our individual lives through prayer, the reading of His Word, and by sharing the good news to others. These three activities, done through the administration of the Holy Spirit, will surely result in countless miracles that thousands of people already testify.
God has perfectly executed His plan of salvation, and we can count on it. We continue to learn Jesus’ revelation of the end times and we see such prophecies fulfilled. Soon evildoers will find their place in the presence of Satan, with gnashing of teeth, full of wrath and indignation as they face God’s judgment towards them.
The inevitable challenge is distinct and special
The challenge to us now, as Pastor Luesak Yangkullawat mentioned in his sermon entitled, “God Cares” in the video above, is what do we do with this grace in relation to our loved ones? Do we share it more to others than to our own family and relatives?
The challenge is specific. The challenge leads us to the people close to our hearts. Are we up for the challenge?
