Does God Respect Man?

By God’s Grace (kindness) and Mercy (compassion), we are respected. What do I mean by this? Sin came into the world through man and this caused God to turn His face away from man. Man was cursed (due to sin) and could only be delivered through the Sinless Sacrifice, causing God to give His only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die in the place of man, and glory be to God, death could not keep its hold on Him! (Acts 2:24). This is indeed God’s Grace and Mercy.

What does respect mean?

Let’s break this word into two:

  1. Re – a prefix meaning ‘again and again’, repetition.
  2. Spect – to see; to observe; to look; to watch over.

Therefore, respect means:

  • To see someone in a positive Light
  • To show concern; to show pity
  • To turn back towards; to return
  • To help; to extend favor (to favorably look upon)

Why did God do this? Do we really deserve respect? The answer is no. Respect is the undeserved ‘favor’ that is portrayed by the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. The two words can be used interchangeably.

This is the main reason why destruction CANNOT and will not come upon us.

On A Light Note: Now I understand what scholars mean when they say, ‘Respect is earned and is also two – way’ As I respect God, He in turn respects (favors) me.

Prayer: Lord, thank You for Your Grace and Mercy over my life that has caused You to respect (favor) me. Thank You for seeing me in a positive Light. Thank You for showing concern over my life. Thank You for returning; turning back towards me. Thank You for helping me. Because of this, destruction shall NEVER come my way in Jesus Name, Amen!

Music Corner:

You ask, ‘What does it take to be respected (favored) by the Lord? All you need to do is to say this simple prayer: “Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Now I surrender. Thank You for saving me!
In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.”

Salvation is A glorious epilogue to man’s existence! Being Swallowed up by the Love of Christ, the Word of God being my Favorite Place; I am no longer Faceless! Not a Foreigner in the Kingdom of God, but a Child of God!

The Winning Vote

Via Grey/Gray!

We are in the season of nominating those who will represent different parties in the coming elections. Campaigns have been done and now is the time to separate the wheat from the chaff. Picture this: an area with two candidates having an ordinary citizen approaching the station, picking the ballot, and ignorantly ticking both boxes!

  • This vote holds no water,
  • This vote is equated to no vote;
  • This vote is out of order,
  • This vote is a spoiled vote.

This is what happens every time we mix fear and faith. These two principles belong to opposing kingdoms. They cannot correlate. It’s always either one or the other.

  • The former brings death, while the latter, Life!
  • The former brings darkness, while the latter, Light!
  • The former has no future, while the latter’s Bright!
  • The former resembles black, while the latter, White!

Both candidates are campaigning in our lives. Both have shown us their referendum. It’s our responsibility to avidly scrutinize each, and note that there are pros and cons (all pros lie in faith while all cons in fear). Thereafter we will be able to cast an informed vote towards the principle we want to live by. Each principle activates the kingdom behind it and negates the other principle’s kingdom.

‘For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.’ – 2 Timothy 1:7

What therefore is the definition of the word(s) ‘grey/grey?’ This is a mixture of fear and Faith; a mixture of death and Life; a mixture of darkness and Light; a mixture of black and White.

‘For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light.’ – Ephesians 5:8

On a lighter note: Even the word ‘grey/gray’ in itself is yet to decide whether she should be spelled using ‘e’ for fear or ‘a’ for faith. A vote of no confidence goes out from me to her.

From Opaque To Awake

If Light does not penetrate, how will we see?
If we are thick – headed, how will we be able to understand?
If we are not transparent, how will others learn from us?
If we are opaque, how will our Maker reach us?

I am awake, watching and waiting
I am awake, searching the Word
I am awake, interceding for the Lost
I am awake, communing with my Maker

Wake up! Open your eyes.
Wake up! Clear your mind.
Wake up! Receive the Light.
Wake up! Your Maker beckons.

Opacity kills! Light gives life!
