God’s Ways Versus Our Ways

If we are going to have a productive relationship with God, we must acknowledge that His way of doing things is fundamentally different from ours.  We are sinners.  We are selfish.  Therefore, we don’t think the way He thinks and will have to change in order to collaborate with Him in life.

To best understand how God’s ways differ from ours, consider Jesus Christ and the life He lived on earth.  Consider how many things He did that were different than the way we would do them.  Then note how spiritually successful His life was.  Note that material success must often be sacrificed in order to achieve spiritual success.  Do not let this frighten you – God will always provide for you, just as He always provided for Jesus.

Model your life after Jesus.  Call upon Him in prayer to show you how.  Begin to learn that serving God doesn’t always mean doing different things than you are doing now, but it does always mean doing things in a different way.

Most of all, it’s the way of love.

The purpose of this blog is to provide information about Jesus Christ to those who want to hear about Him without having to join a church or any other group.
