Before there was…there was GOD. Period!
“In the beginning GOD created the heaven and the earth.” – Genesis 1:1 (KJV)
What did we create? Nothing He hasn’t already created. What can we give Him? Nothing He doesn’t already own. The very breath we breathe we only breathe it because He gave us the breath (Psalm 150:6) and we are responsible to praise Him with it! What an amazing creator. The skies proclaim His handiwork (Psalm 19:1-3).
So why would a God like this, who created all of this come and die on a cross just for humans (Psalm 8)? Because of love. Love is that much of a powerful force – one that would move even the very heart of God (St. John 3:16-17). Is there anything that we can give Him? There is one thing we can give Him that He will never take from us by force. One thing that makes all sentient beings who we are…..Choice.
When you consider the creative genius of the everlasting God (as the song writer proclaimed how beautiful heaven must be), why would you not choose Him? Why would you not choose He who fights to save all of us from eternal damnation and give us eternal life?
“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” Revelation 4:11 (KJV)
