God IS God

…one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:6 ESV

god is1

Tell me where you invest your time, talent, and treasure, and I will tell you about your God. Whomever or whatever you serve first in your life comes to question.

As a culture we laugh at gods of our forefathers. The majority, if not all of these gods are man-made. Built upon superstition, rituals, or ignorance, these false gods have proven to be untrue.

The challenge comes though when one is introduced to the God of Israel. The same God of Abraham, Jacob, and Isaac. The same God that Jesus prayed to, spoke about, and revealed through his incarnate life.

This God continually proves himself over and over again. First in scripture. Then through the lives of many of his followers. Throughout history, there are many testimonies of lives changed, miracles revealed, and prophecies fulfilled.

When one encounters this God, one is never the same again. This God reveals Reality because HE created everything we know and what we have yet to discover. When you come to know HIM, HIS thoughts, HIS purpose, and HIS character, you come to know the basis of creation.

You have the foundation of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. You have a worldview that is based on Reality. You know God is God. All other gods are simple allusions to make oneself feel good about self.

Seek HIM; love HIM; worship HIM. Let HIM be God. Like Albert Einstein once stated: “I only want to know HIS thoughts, everything else is details.”

Follow The Money

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”  Luke 12:34

follow the money

Want to know where your heart truly stands? Just follow the money. Whether we are speaking about a business or a personal life, the principle is still the same. You can determine your values by how you spend your money.

Take the example of a business that boasts that their people are their most important asset. If you want confirmation, just find out how much of their operating expenses are spent for and toward their team. I can’t tell you the number of financial statements that I have analyzed which contradicted senior management beliefs on the subject. For a family, the income after the basic necessity of food, clothing, and shelter will give you a good snapshot of a person’s heart; what they value and consider important.

Jesus’ statement is still revealing today. What you value is where you will spend your time and money. However, when the Triune God is the center of your soul, He is also redeeming your time and money. It is a process, but over one’s life-time one learns that God owns it all and is simply sharing it with us all. That as stewards, we are accountable to Him. We thank Him for everything including the opportunity to express our hearts through the physical activities of life. Like Him, we open our resources to others. Our values begin to change as the Holy Spirit changes our hearts to reflect Him more and more. We become more Christ-like.

We all truly express ourselves from our inner being. It takes a spiritual rebirth to have one’s heart reshaped and molded into the image of the living God. When that happens, one then can say what the Bible states about King David. “He is a man after my (G0d’s) own heart.”

So if you are seeking a new adventure for life, ask God to reveal the condition of your heart. But more so, ask Him to change your heart to reflect His in everything you say, think, and do. Remember, He is rooting for you!

Yours in Christ,
