Praise God!

I have mentioned before how it is that I hate that I love theology so much. Please understand that I do think theology is an important part of our life as a believer. It is absolutely necessary to accomplish the love for God we should have in our mind but I am persuaded that it is our love, not our understanding, that is the single most important aspect of our relationship with God and with others.

Still I admit that I wish I knew it all and that my knowledge of God was complete. I wish I could answer every question and especially those pertaining to faith in Christ. I wish I could explain to every individual I meet exactly why he or she has not believed in Jesus and provide him or her the specific means necessary to overcome their doubt. Sadly I cannot but praise God I’m only required to give what I can, the reason for the hope within me.

My hope and my faith is only and completely in the love of God that was made known to me in Jesus Christ. He is my friend, my brother, my Lord and my savior. He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. He is my all in all. I am persuaded He can be yours as well if only you will believe in Him. I have very strong suspicions but honestly I cannot tell you specifically why one individual believes in Him and one does not. I can only tell you I know in my heart that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true and that my relationship with God began with this knowledge and it continues in Christ.

If you have never heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ then please let me know or at the very least read the book of John in the Bible. If you have heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ and believe in Him then we can praise God together for His great love and be thankful that we need no further understanding to secure the many blessings of God that are found only in Jesus Christ.

I know how you feel, KC. Have you read C.S. Lewis' book, The Great Divorce? Sometimes words help and sometimes they don't. Keep at it, though. And get that book if you haven't read it, cause you'll enjoy it.

Thanks for displaying your heart here, brother. And thanks for proclaiming Jesus Christ!

Bill thanks so much for the kindness and encouragement. I haven’t read The Great Divorce but I think I should. Many other wise brethren have recommended it as well. ;-)

Pastor thanks for the return welcome! I may be slower posting these days but I still enjoy reading all your articles and especially the ones about Andrew! ;-)

KC, God has been slowly but surely bringing me to the same conclusion concerning love. There was a time when I thought I had many answers but it was mostly for questions that no one was asking.

I appreciate your heart for God and people. It's great to see a new post from you.

K.C.,
Good post. I would sure be interested in your suspicions that you mentioned here:

I have very strong suspicions but honestly I cannot tell you specifically why one individual believes in Him and one does not.

Preacher, it seems more and more to me that every problem of theology is solved somehow by the love of God in Christ. ;-)

Bro. Ron thanks so much for the blessing and the wonderful fellowship. I really appreciate the pictures of you and Princess!

Paul, welcome and thanks so much for the encouragement. I hope we can always be a blessing to you here!

Rose thanks so much dear sister.

Janice it was such a blessing to read your thoughts. I would so much love to be able to “see” the things that you do. Your pictures and interpretations really are worth a thousand words!

Bro. Wayne, thanks so much. I’ll try to put together an article soon giving my reflection on some of the scriptural examples of those who refused to believe.

Great post, KC. As you know, I am also torn by a desire for understanding that can seem both wise and foolish at the same time. One thing I know is that love always builds faith while my ideas of understanding can often create doubt. Lots of love to you and Sis Corry!
