“…GOD is for us.”
If God is for us, who can be against us?”
From “the beginning”, God has been for us. All 66 books of the Bible are an account of how far, deep and wide His love is for us. In the same way He hovered “over the waters” of a dark and empty earth, God hovers over our dark and empty lives filling them with His light and His purpose.
He was for Noah on the ark.
He was for Moses standing at the edge of the Red Sea.
He was for David facing Goliath.
He was for Daniel in the lion’s den.
He was for Hannah who was childless.
He was for Saul, who became Paul, on the road to Damascus.
He was for Peter who denied Him three times.
He was for John the Baptist who was beheaded.
He was for the woman at the well.
He was for Thomas who doubted.
He was for Lazarus who died.
He was for the thief that entered paradise.
He was for men that administered the whipping.
He was for the Romans that nailed Him to a tree.
He was for the Pharisees that spit upon Him.
He “is for us…”
And that goes for every human that has ever graced the stage of life. Whether we accept the gift of God’s salvation through Jesus Christ, or not, it still does not take away the underlying truth that God has always been and will always be for all of us.
John 3:16 states,“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Jesus came for the sinner, and that includes all of “us.”
To the unbeliever, will you be for Him, by asking Jesus Christ into your life today? Will you believe someone can be for you so much He would take on your sins and die in your place?
To the believer, are we for Him? And, if so, how?
