KEEP IN TOUCH

“Sometimes I don’t think I ‘m a Christian,” said a boy one day.  “I don’t seem to have the same interest that I had when I joined the church. It isn’t easy for me to remember God.”   “What about the time your father was away from home so long?  Was it hard for you to remember him?” asked the minister slowly.  “Not a bit,” said the boy.  “We had letters from him and kept thinking about him and talking about him, and looking forward to the time when he would be home.  No, there wasn’t much chance to forget him.” Suppose there had been no letters.  Suppose your father’s name had been dropped from the conversation.” said the minister thoughtfully.
 “That would have made a difference,” answered the boy.  “Well, don’t you see it is the same with God?  We can’t see Him when we allow so many other things to crowd in upon us.  But God has given us His Holy Word, something like your father’s letters, and His house where the family can meet and talk about Him.  A fellow needs all the reminders of God he can have in a world like this.”
(Bible Expositor and Illuminator)

 We are such forgetters.  God knows this so He has given us lots of reminders of Himself. He has given us an adequate piece of His mind in the Bible. He reveals Himself through the living Word, Jesus and the written Word, the Bible.  We are without excuse, we can know God. If we forget Him, it is because we have allowed other things to cloud our vision.  

 Two things we must know about God.  They are: One, that God is and two, that God wants to be known.  I believe the Bible as Genesis 1: 1 states:  “In the beginning, God created…”  God brought everything that is into being.  God is the author of all creation.  God made mankind.  God is a father and wants a family.  This family of  His is to be like His Son, Jesus.  They will bear the nature of Christ.  Wouldn’t it be strange if Father God did not want to be known by His children?  We can know God.  Hebrews 1: 1-2  “In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by His Son…” Jesus told Philip, “Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, Show us the Father?” (John 14: 9)

                             We have a responsibility to KEEP IN TOUCH with God.
