Are you a What or a Why?

There’s a verse in the Psalms I’ve loved for a long time.  “He made known His ways to Moses, His deeds to the people of Israel” (Psalm 103:7).  I like that God made a distinction between those who knew about Him, and the one who was a friend to Him.  To Israel He revealed the things He did, but Moses was given a deeper understanding of the heart behind those deeds.  As Christians, Jesus doesn’t call us servants anymore, but friends.  God’s ways are so different from ours, but no longer do we have to be outsiders – just observing the things He does; we can actually ask Him questions and get to know Him.  I think that’s amazing.

 

Are you an observer of what God does, or do you wonder about Him and want to know why He does it?  If you’d like to know God, you can do that by accepting that Jesus died on the cross in your place, taking the punishment for all you’ve done wrong, then God raised Him to life and took away the power of death.  Now Jesus stands in the gap between God and you, and you can talk to God because of what Jesus has done.
