"For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well."
(Psalms 139:13-14 KJV)
"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:"
(1 Peter 2:9 KJV)
Our Awesome God sees us in a pure, unadulterated love that we as humans cannot totally comprehend (1 John 4:16). But let us just look at the love portion of "how He sees us," for the Bible says there are several other ways God sees us and, probably, even some ways that are not in the Bible. As Christians, God does not see our faults and failings, because He did something to prevent Himself from seeing them, He redeemed us with the blood of Jesus (Colossians 1:13-14). This is why it is important that you accept Jesus' sacrifice on the cross to cover your sins from God's sight and become an active Christian.
Think of "redeemed with blood" as "covered with love." That beautiful love of Our Awesome God is so great that He covers all our faults and failings with the redemption of Jesus. We will never be able to understand the depth of God's love and mercy. It is so great that we could never understand its enormity. However, God wants us to come to an understanding of some of it and the hardest part for some of us is to accept it without conditions.
Our Awesome God's love is unconditional. We have to do nothing, be nothing, and we are loved. There are so many conditions put on human love that it is hard for us to separate unconditional love from the type of love which we have for one another. Though we will never completely understand, we need to have enough faith to know that God is pure love. Join us or attend a church that teaches that Jesus died, taking all our sins upon Himself, and arose the third day to sit at the right hand of God. Our Awesome God sees no fault in you when you are redeemed with the blood of Jesus and He can then cover you with His unconditional love because God sees no wrong in you!
Learn more about Our Awesome God by reading His Holy Bible, praying to Him and worshipping in a church which preaches and teaches the Holy Bible. Join us at Living Word Baptist Church as we pray and worship Him this Sunday at 9:30 AM for Bible Study and 10:30 AM for worship Service. At 6:00 PM, we have another Bible Study hour and AWANA, a children's program until 7:30 PM. On Wednesdays, we meet at 7:00 PM for Prayer Requests and Bible Study along with a Youth Chapel. But first, it is time that you should know and love Our Awesome God as your creator and Savior. We can show you how from the Word of God and we love visitors.
