Have you ever stopped to listen to the birds sing or the other animals move about? Have you ever wondered about their purpose? Have you considered that they go to and fro on the earth doing the will of the Father?

Many people today believe that we just somehow exist. They have many philosophies, but I venture to ask, “How is everything so well organized? Why don't the animals or the waters overtake us?”

You see the truth is found in scripture, God's word. The Bible declares that God created us and the animals, but we (humans) were made in His image and likeness. We have a soul and spirit!

If we just evolved, then why do we have a mind to think? Why do we know the difference between right and wrong? Good and evil? How was the human body designed so perfectly to work in harmony? Why isn't everyone doing the same job? Why is the world being managed by humanity? Somehow there is an even distribution of gifts and talents.

Where there is a design, isn't there a designer? We as humans are designed in a marvelous way! Think about how babies are formed and grow in the womb. We have memories! We have knowledge and a free will that we use even against our own creator! Where did all of this come from if not from an original designer?

In addition, most often when there is a design, there are not many designers. There's only one because the design would then become confusing based on all the different patterns and fingerprints. Every artist has their own unique way of drawing. The painting points directly to them.

Therefore, we are the handiwork of one God, creator, and LORD, Jesus Christ! Here are a few  confirmations from scripture.

Everyone who is called by My name, Whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”
Isaiah 43:7 NKJV

"O LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, who is enthroned above the cherubim, You are the God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭37:16‬ ‭NASB‬‬

“Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭100:3‬ ‭NASB‬‬

Re-Presenting God!
#hope-in-Christ


 
 
How can truth be divided? That is one of the questions I asked God as He led me through writing my first youth journal about the deity of Christ. The book is titled Re-Presenting God: Taking a Healthy Look at the Holy One of Israel. The phrase Re-Presenting God means to point individuals to the true God in the midst of unbelief and false deities.

You see, we live in a time where so many have fallen away from the truth about God, the Creator. Many believe that there are several ways to God and some even believe that we evolved from nothing.

So let's take a look at one of the terms that I focus on in my book, truth. What is truth? According to the dictionary, truth is accuracy, certainty, reality, sincere or fact. The opposite of this is counterfeit or fake.

So I ask the question again, how can truth be divided? If it must be accurate and it must be certain then how can it come from many sources?  If we were created, then how can there be many ways to the creator? Or if you don't believe that we were created, then how do we know the difference between the truth and a lie or good and evil? 

If you would be completely honest and listen to your heart, you would admit that there can only be One source for truth regarding life itself. Truth can only found in Jesus Christ. When we walk in relationship with Him, He gives life meaning. He created us for a purpose.
