We all need to wear a sign over our hearts, “God at Work.” The first step is “God planned.” He has the blueprints concerning our life, and He has given our situation deep thought. No matter what happens, it is filtered through His consideration.
The next phrase, “to do good things.” We need to pipe goodness through our lives. Goodness is what we have to offer. Essentially, we just transmit “goodness” to everyone we meet, as we know the itinerary of our lives are His arrangement. The faces we see that come before us, are part of the Father’s plan.
The next phrase, “to live as he always wanted us to live.” First, this establishes that He wants something. He looks and sees only a very few that are really willing to let their lives reflect His wonderful presence. His sincere idea is that we initiate His presence, and allow Him to work through us. He wants this. He wants us to live our lives characteristic of Him.
The very next phrase, “that’s why he sent Christ.” It is at this point we enter into things that are beyond us. As we reflect, we start to understand the Father’s complete rationale in sending Jesus to die like He did. As we consider this, we truly enter in something totally beyond us. This is something far and away we could never initiate on our own.
“That’s why he sent Christ to make us what we are.” Jesus had been “triggered.” His intention was to guide us to the Father. He constructed a highway that would deliver us to Him. Jesus has become the originating point where we become totally His. He simply works in us, to make us ready to go. The little phrase, “to make us what we are” is most interesting. There exists in eternity a deep concern that we become what we profess. The work of heaven is simply to bring us into His likeness.
I can only simply trust that you will process this, and start to generate an appropriate response. The Father is very close, and He will lead you through any confusion.
