Recently I had a Heart Procedure which caused me to do lot of thinking about mortality and even more important, what life is all about.
Why am I on this earth?
What is expected of me?
How do I go about it?
It’s appalling that probably the majority of the seven billion inhabitants of this earth have little understanding of their purpose for being here and their obligations to the creator for making it all possible.
When the human race was created, great thing were expected of them if they followed the rules. They did not and as a result mankind was left to make it on their own. History has shown that they have not done well in that regard. Left to their own devices they have turned the world into chaos and destitution. Our world today is a far cry from the Eden that was intended.
The Lord’s Prayer (modern version) says, “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven,” In other words, we are asking Almighty God to bring the Kingdom of God including its jurisdiction to our planet to rule over us. Now, while we seem to be asking God to take over the running of our affairs, we on the other hand zealously cling to our man-made governmental structures, even to fighting bloody wars to preserve them.
We (Christians, that is) believe that Christ Jesus will return to earth someday to be the administrator of God’s Kingdom, over which He will rule for 1000 Years. No one knows when the time will be, many speculate, many prophesize, but only Almighty God knows when He will step in and take over.
In the meantime God has blessed us with His Holy Spirit to indwell in believers and to empower them to accomplish great works for the honor and glory of Almighty God. All the
acts of those so guided prepare the way for the eventual coming. We can rely on the Holy Spirit
to enable us to live life to the fullest and to remove all obstacles in our lives. The Holy Spirit
intercedes with the Father on our behalf.
The Holy Spirit brings LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS,
FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS, PURITY AND SELF-CONTROL into our lives and is
our power over the negative things of the world (sickness, poverty, etc.)
In other words, when we allow our Holy Spirit to be our guide in all things and to direct our
activities, our lives are lived to the maximum for the Honor and Glory of Almighty God.
