Did you ever think about the complexity of creation? What about letting your mind wander about the Who and What of God Himself? Your mind will short-circuit before you get very far! According to physicists, some 5 “million million” hydrogen atoms (give or take a few!!) would fit on the head of a pin! Contrast that with 1 million planet earths basically fitting inside the circumference of the sun! Those extremes are just too great for us to understand and grasp. And that’s just what “intelligent” man knows thus far. Yet Creator God … God Almighty … has numbered the very hairs upon your own head. He is God.
God is so much greater. His ways and thoughts are higher than our ways and thoughts. Isaiah also says that God’s understanding is inscrutable, meaning ‘impossible to understand.’ Yet, many in their own wisdom continue to seek their own way. Knowing the futility of man, the Lord has allowed His Own Son, Jesus Christ, to step into history as a man providing us an example and a relationship. That is another mystery … fully man so that you and I can identify and relate, yet fully God as well. God’s ways are definitely higher than our ways.
The simple gospel is that Christ took my sin and your sin … all the world’s sin for that matter … upon Himself, and because of it, He died a literal death. But He didn’t stay in the grave. He was resurrected to be at the right hand of Father God for all eternity. When our faith and trust are placed in Jesus and what He has done, we are redeemed from being separated from God because of our sin. He presents us before the Father clean and forgiven. Jesus has paid the price of our sin once and for all and has conquered death by His resurrection.
Understanding salvation is gained by confessing a simple faith in Him and acknowledging your need of redemption of your own shortcomings. However, God in His sovereignty does not force that decision. Along with the hydrogen atoms and planet Earth, He gave you a free will to choose. What way will you choose? It is the mission of Right From The Heart to encourage you to seek the way of a saving God through Jesus Christ. He is a big enough God to hear the cry of your heart right now. He understands.
