Life unfortunately is very hard. Every day we find a new struggle just as fast as we conquer one. Should we demand God to owe us a more pleasurable life? Have we given enough of our life to His ends? If he loves us would he want us to not deal pain and suffering? If God is love why does he allow hate to spread all over the world? These questions are very selfish. In this blog I will explain why these questions are illogical and self-serving. I will start with a passage in scripture that explains what God has done for us.
Colossians 1:13-17 (NASB)
“For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”
Isn’t this enough? There are various passages thru the bible that magnify his love for us. He gave us the bible because he loved us. We escaped hell because of the debt that Jesus paid for us. It is very odd to say to God this is not enough. Is the greatest form of love giving up your life for someone else? Anyone who wants more then this is selfish. The reason why I included verse 16 and 17 was to explain the magnitude of God. This is very important.
The last part of the passage states “…all things have been created through Him and for Him.” He died for his creation. We ask more from the One that everything is created for? I was originally going to make a longer blog. Yet the answer is already self-evident. We owe everything to him. Everything we have is not enough for him. He is more then enough for us.
