The Rejection of God
Soul Snack 222/12 ... The Rejection of God
God's absolutely deepest desire is that people will have a heart to know Him for He holds a heart to be known. This was Jesus' mission upon earth - to make His Father known.
No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father’s side, has made him known. (Jn 1:18)
God has fabricated no pretence in His self-revelation as Jacob did - rather He painted His presence upon a world-wide, sky-high canvas and even splashed an inviting creative witness over His rotating easel of earth.
God has acted graciously, assertively, clearly and with an extravagant expense that those He had a heart to make would also have a heart for their maker.
In Eden God knew no rejection until evil intervened. God created relationship - satan created rejection.
- God is still lost to the world's heart.
- God is still least in the world's eyes.
- God is still last in the world's mind and
- God is still lonely without you.
Yep - God was the first of the lost, the least, the last and the lonely ... surprising, sad and REAL!
God was also the first to ever receive a wounded heart and it must be still wounded today.
Would you sit with Him, thank Him, affirm Him, act for Him, deny yourself for Him and even defend Him? He will see!
(PS - No wonder God is so patently active in His pursuit of the lost, the least, the last and the lonely.)
