IWe are connected to God by His hands creating us. Because of sin, that connection was broken and now Jesus has restored that connection by offering Himself as a ransom “payment’ for our sins. Those who accept Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord are connected to God through Jesus Christ. It seems simple to explain, but the weight of that is huge. You and I did nothing to deserve being made right with God which makes the power of His mercy so great.
With that being said, God created us to be connected to others as well as Himself. With the mercy that He has offered to us, why would we not want to extend that same grace to others? There is no doubt that the level of hatred toward those that do not agree, is at an all time high. We counter that hate with grace. God is calling you and I to use our connection with Him to connect Him with others.
(Romans 10:14) 14 But how can they call on Him to save them unless they believe in Him? And how can they believe in Him if they have never heard about Him? And how can they hear about Him unless someone tells them?
Pray that God will use you to connect people to Him in the way you talk, worship and treat others. It can be as simple as an invitation to church or asking someone if they would like you to pray for them. Our mission at Homeland Park Baptist Church is “Connecting Lives With God and Others!” Let’s not make that a slogan, let’s make it a reality!
