Daily Reading: Exodus 39:1-40:38 ESV, Mark 1:1-28 ESV, Psalm 35:1-16 ESV, Proverbs 9:11-12 ESV

Daily Verse: “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.” (Mark 1:1 ESV)

THEOS (2316): “A deity, the supreme Divinity; fig., a magistrate.  In the polytheism of the Greeks denoted an ‘a god or deity.  Appropriated by Jews and retained by Christians to denote ‘the one true God.” In the OT, “God” comes from the Hebrew words Elohim and Jehovah, the former indicating His power and pre-eminence, the later His unoriginated, immutable, eternal, and self-sustained existence.  In the NT, these and all the other divine attributes are predicated of Him.”[I]

Everything starts with God.

People will argue until their dying breath, God doesn’t exist, but that’s not the truth. God created everything.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1 ESV)

Other theories exist about how the world began, but none proved.  Our existence depends on God’s creativity; each morning begins because God allows the sun to rise.  You live because God gives you breath.  Everything starts with God.  First, He created the world; then God made man.  Without the Big Guy, none of us would live.

Eternal and self-sustained.

Our human minds can’t comprehend God’s sovereignty completely.  An eternal being, God doesn’t need us; we need Him.  Our forever life begins when we believe in God’s existence.  God created us as an expression of His love.  Loving, worshiping, and serving Jesus becomes our gift to God. 

Theology means how you view God. Each of us develops a belief system about the nature of God, which determines our relationship with Him.  If we think of God as cold and uncaring, our relationship will reflect the belief.  However, understanding God’s unconditional love for you will draw you into a closer relationship with Him as you accept His affection into your life.

Believe God exists.  Pursue a relationship with your Creator.  Experience the love and mercy God offers.  Live life to the fullest today.
