I’m Only Human 9/25/2019

Greetings my friends, grace, and peace to you in the name of God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank God for you and the opportunity He has given me to share His word of life and love with you. Lord, I ask that you guide my thoughts and enable me to express your word in such a way that it will provoke a change of heart to all those who take the time and read, In Jesus name, Amen.

Then God said, Let us make man in our own image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea, and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground. So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female he created them. God saw all that He made, and it was very good. (Genesis 1:26, 27,).

My friends when we err our favorite excuse when we don’t want to take responsibility for our era is, I’m not perfect or as some may say I am only human. God has given us the ability to analyze, so let us do just that and analyze exactly what it is God has done. God created us to be the same type of being He is. God has the highest intellect there is, and He created each of us with intellect. This gives us the ability to think, to plan, to reason, to imagine, to create, to make decisions, to make choices, to communicate, to make scientific computations and so on. God has given us the ability to learn and to understand. In doing so God gave us the ability to be more or less intelligent. God has given us the intellectual properties we need to live in the world He created in harmony with one another. God gave us a will the ability to make life-changing decisions, that will not only affect our lives but the lives of others.

God has emotions, and He created us with emotions. Emotions enable us to love, to feel happy, or sad, or satisfied, or dissatisfied, or angry, or jealous, or caring, or remorseful, or guilty, or pleased, or hateful, anxious, terrified, or joy, or fear, or the ability to feel proud of someone. These emotions help us as we socialize and interact with one another, and with God. These emotions help us as we interact with the world around us. For example, when we see someone that is hurt we feel sorry for them and we reach out and help them if we can because we care, or if someone is hungry we feed them because we care. When our children are obedient to the instructions we give them we are happy with them and in addition to that, we know they love us. It is the same way with God, He knows that we love Him because we are obedient to Him.

God has a will and He also created us with a will, When God created us, our will was to do the will of God. This was our position in the beginning. As long as we made the choice to place God’s will before our own we were in harmony with God and God was pleased with us. Then just as now we knew what God’s will is. We also knew what the consequence was for disobeying what we knew to be God’s will. I am only human is a very poor excuse for exhibiting the type of behavior you know is not acceptable to God. What you are doing when you make the I’m only human excuse is, you are blaming God for the corruption you chose to place in your heart. Your position should be one of sorrow, shame, remorseful, repentance, seeking Gods forgiveness. Don’t fool yourself into thinking because you don’t see God physically that you will not suffer consequences for your sin. Every choice you make good or bad there are consequences.

My friends God know you are Human, He created you. In His Image as the crown of His creation. He gave you dominion over the earth and everything in it. God knows you better then you know yourself and yet after knowing you and all your faults, and all your sins even ones who have yet to commit, He offers you the gift of forgiveness, and peace, and eternal life. You must stop blaming your humanity and admit to yourself what God already knows. That you are a sinner and need forgiveness. Then you are mentally capable of making a conscious decision to act upon the Gracious gift offered to you by God. Here is God’s offer, “God so love the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believe in Him shall not perish but shall have everlasting life”. God’s love transcends all understanding, don’t get hung up on trying to figure it out. You have plenty of time for that, what is important is to believe in Jesus now, that He is God’s Son, and that He died on the cross for your sin. If you believe ask Him to forgive you. If you did this, I congratulate you and welcome you in the family of God. If you choose not to, you will only be able to blame yourself.

If you are already a Christian and this message applies to you, ask God to forgive you. God promise that If you Confess your sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sin and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1John 1:9). Confess your sins to God, He will forgive you and restore your fellowship. Thank you, Lord, for this opportunity In Jesus name
