This post was inspired by Matthew 9:9-13 while I was doing my daily Bible reading.
The passage is,
“As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, ‘Follow me.’ So he arose and followed Him. Now it happened as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, ‘Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?’ When Jesus heard that, He said to them, ‘Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice.’ For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.'”
Now, where it says “but go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice'” there is an indication in my Bible that references Hosea 6:6, which says,
“For I desire mercy and not sacrifice, and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.”
So, when I read these, it really opened my eyes to how wonderful the God I serve is. So, I thought I would make some points about the God I serve here.
So without further ado, here are some attributes of the God I serve.
- I serve a God who doesn’t only desire “perfect people” if there was a such thing (there isn’t).
- I serve a God who wasn’t afraid to get ridiculed and judged for the people He communed with to save, even though He is the creator of the universe.
- I serve a God who will go into the deepest pits of hell on earth to save His children from the grasps of the devil, sin nature, and themselves if they chose to follow Him when He calls.
- I serve a God who is no respecter of persons
- I serve a God who can (and happily will) forgive the worst of sins known to man and give new life if we heed to His call and the wooing of His spirit and love and obey Him. And, not only will He forgive, He will forget.
- I serve a God who loves every single one of us more than we will ever comprehend. A God who loves us so much, He delivered Himself up to be tortured and killed in our place so we could have everlasting life. Plus, the ones He was dying for were the ones that killed Him…and He still did it.
- I serve a God who makes all things possible.
- I serve a God who while being the Creator of the universe listens to the needs, wants, and cries of measly humans, and answers.
- I serve a God who will save us from the death and hell we all deserve if we love and obey Him and get born again.
- I serve a God who with Him it is possible to have a completely new life, who will deliver you from all your troubles and sins and work all things to your good.
- I serve a God who loves me.
DON’T YOU WANT TO SERVE HIM TOO?
I suggest you do, He is our only hope.
May God Bless You All,
