For many people, gazing at the heavens brings questions about the existence of a Creator to their mind. The distances are so vast that travel between planets can take multiple lifetimes at the speed of light. Looking at the stars, it becomes possible to imagine infinity – eternity.
But a vague belief in God isn’t enough. There are still questions about how we should respond to this idea of God? What does God require of us? Does God speak to us? Those answers can’t be found in the skies or nature alone.
Those answers can be found in the Bible. Quite simply, the Scriptures teach us that man’s primary purpose is to glorify God and enjoy him forever. But, as sinful creatures we cannot please God or glorify Him.
We instinctively know that sin is a problem in our lives – when our anger gets out of control, when we hurt someone, when we lie… Scripture tells us that Jesus made the sacrifice for our sins on the cross, so that we can become one of His children. It is then that we can begin to glorify God and enjoy Him.
Dear Lord, My faith is small. Help me to believe that Jesus can take away my sin. Let me begin to glorify you and serve you as I learn more about you from reading your Word, the Bible. Let me say Oh, joy above all joys as I begin to praise you and enjoy you forever. Amen.
