God Has Made Himself Known to Man
God will make himself known to us when we open our hearts to Him. When we have an intimate relationship with God, He reveals Himself to us in ways we cannot imagine. He knows all about us; yet, He still uses us for His glory. Only an awesome, Holy God would use us despite our sinfulness. As imperfect as we are, He gives us the opportunity to be a part of the work of the kingdom. We cannot serve Him without knowing Him. Surely, He has made Himself known to us. The question is, “have we made ourselves known to Him?.” In Galatians 1:15-16, we find these words:
“But even before I was born, God chose me and called me by his marvelous grace. Then it pleased him 16 to reveal his Son to me so that I would proclaim the Good News about Jesus to the Gentiles. When this happened, I did not rush out to consult with any human being.”
The Word says, “God chose me and called me by His marvelous grace.” Grace was the secret of Paul’s new life in Christ. He could give meaning to the lives of others because he found grace for himself. Grace had saved and redeemed him. With all of Paul’s unholy living, God still called him to preach. That’s amazing! When we look back over some of the things we have done in our lives, we realize that God could have given up on us, but thank God today, that He didn’t! He made Himself known to us. Thank God today for His unbelievable grace!
