| | Understanding God
Christians learn to recognize and worship our Lord God.
Our privilege is to have a lifetime to deepen our
relationship to our Creator, in every possible way.
We learn how to reach for being closer to the faith
and to those whom we are given to love as family,
friends, and fellow human beings. We are blessed by
all the wonders of our world and of the cosmos.
When we are beset by disease, crime, tragedy and even
devastation, we turn to our faith to survive and save
Then we pause to reflect: why does God allow these
terrible trials and problems? My response seems to
be: ask why God created life and all existance? Can
we understand or even comprehend God's Plan?
Now we have come to the reality that is God. We look
to His world around us, to how our world is sustained,
by God's laws of nature, in all things. Christians live
by God's law, commandments, the Gospel of Christ.
This is the spiritual nature.
But the laws that rule all existance and life itself are also
God's laws and those are neither voluntarily obeyed nor
breakable. We learn those laws through science.
The Biblical and spiritual laws are met through our souls.
But our bodies are bound to the laws of nature, wherein
we witness the power and might of God.
Although God is One, God is both creator (nature) and
Redeemer (spiritual). With the first, we are alive,
and with the second, we may have eternal life.
Why does God allow the problems and sufferings in the world?
That we who know and serve Him may face
them all and rise above ourselves through serving
God and the Messiah, our Saviour.
Who can ever know the mind of God? Only those who
ever seek God, through all the fears and tears of the
"Fear not, saith the Lord, for I have redeemed thee,
I have called the by name, and thou are mine."
