A Thought from CMI
God is Speaking through His Son
Tuesday, February 19, 2008
"God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;" (Hebrews 1:1-2 NKJ)
God loves the world. He loves all people. He is a God of love. He wants to communicate Himself, His ways, His nature, His desires and His plans and purposes to us. Before He did anything, He thought about creating us and bringing us into His unique plan for each of us. He chose to bring these things to us through His Son. He has thought about these things before the foundation of the world. He has His plan in His mind. He sees the end of His plan in His mind. He knows what He must do in order to bring about His plan. Before He created him, He knew that Satan would fall into sin and rebellion. Before He created us He knew that we would sin and come under Satanís dominion. He knew He would have to send His Son to be our Savior, before He created us. He knew that some would accept His plan, have Jesus live in them, and then come into knowing and loving Him and wanting to serve Him forever in His kingdom. God knew before the creation that He could bring about all these things.
God is merciful. He can give us mercy so we can come near to Him. God is gracious. He is able to give us the desire to renounce our sinful ways, and to empower us with His Spirit so we can live for Him. God is longsuffering. He knows He will be patient with us, as we grow in Him through Christ living in us. God is good. He knows He will be fair and righteous in all His actions. God abounds in truth. He knows He will not be deceived by Satan, and that He will be able to bring His truth into His people so they too will want to live in His heavenly kingdom and be His vessel in bringing the ways of heaven into the earth.
God wants to reveal His ways to us. He wants to communicate His desires with His creation. He wants people to share their desires and needs with Him. He enjoys having people commune with Him so He can bless them and they in turn can bless others with the blessings they have received. God spoke through prophets in the days before Jesus came to the earth. The revelation they received and wrote down about God is in what we know as the Old Testament.
When Jesus came to earth, He did all God wanted Him to do. He came to fulfill all that was spoken of Him as the Savior of the world. He fulfilled the work of being our earthly Anointed One. Now Jesus has been exalted and anointed to be our heavenly High Priest. He is our Heavenly Prophet and King. Jesus lives in heaven. He is speaking from heaven. He is revealing the plans of God to us.
He not only speaks the Word of God to us, He is the Word of God for us. Jesus comes to live in us, imparting the ways of God into us. He brings the Word of God into us and quickens it. He is revealing Godís desires to us. He is bringing us into Godís heaven, so we live before His throne of grace. He is bringing Godís ways into our whole being so that we become united with God. He is God in us, and through Him we can live in God. We can want what God wants and love what He loves. God can live in us through Christ and bring to us His wisdom and power so we can witness Godís love and presence to others. Glory be to Him Who is speaking into us and through us and communicating His being into us through Christ.
Father, we rejoice in You and in Your love and plans for us and Your creation. Help us to hear, receive and live in Christ and to let His life enable us to be Your vessels of love in this world. Amen.
