He is the author of eternal life! Those who have tasted of His goodness do not have a choice but to draw closer to Him. In Him alone dwells all the fullness.
..because all the fullness was pleased to dwell in Him…
For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.
He is the God of the whole earth!
For all things were created in Him, the things in the heavens, and the things on the earth, the visible and the invisible; whether thrones, or lordships, or rulers, or authorities, all things have been created through Him and for Him.
He is the One who decided that you and I should be born. It is His goodness that even today, right now, draws men and women all over the world into His Love. His heart still long to have fellowship with His creation as it was in Eden. Imagine that we know the very Creator of all, He is reaching out to you and me, calling out our names in the cool of the day, because He wants to be with us. Who could resist such a persistent and ardent lover? Continuously drawing us to come into deeper intimacy with Him! Never growing tired of sharing moments of love, joy and ecstasy with us. He wants us to TRULY KNOW HIM! Yes, he longs for us to LIVE HIM in this cold and dying world. Wanting to heal and empower us with His love so that we can ultimately point others to Him to experience Who He is.
If you find yourself on the outside looking in because you are dry, hurting, angry or not trusting Him enough – what ever your reason, the fact still remains He loves you and is waiting and longing to be kind to you. His arms are wide open, longing to embrace you and love you the way you are supposed to be loved. To be loved unconditionally, no matter what your past or current state looks like. We have EVERYTHING to gain if we do come to Him – The Lord Jesus!
Jehovah has appeared to me from afar, saying, Yea, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving-kindness I have drawn you.
Come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest
With such a glorious invitation an invitation to live closer to THE GOD OF ALL THE EARTH WHO LONGS TO BE GRACIOUS TO ALL – I cannot help but ask: How can we not BUT come to Him?! No! Not just with the conditional bits we want to give but, with our all as He gave His UNCONDITIONAL ALL!
