We Are Nothing Without God

How sad it really is for those who either do not believe in God, or who consciously decides they will never believe in God. The madness in this world is in many ways doing all it can to mislead and misguide many into the pit of fire. They only desire to undermine every ones eternity in Heaven. There have even been some so called scientific studies which I have read that say "mankind" is a descendant of aliens. The world can't even prove that Aliens even exist, yet they are quick to say what they have, so they can discount God. If that's not a ludicrous crazy reach to get as far away from God, then I don't know what is. It's really sad.
Scripture needs to be our guide. We are so fortunate to have a God who loves us so much, that He left us what we need to follow Him - His Word. Here are two very powerful scriptures; "The Advocate, the Holy Spirit that the Father will send in my name - He will teach you everything and remind you all that I told you." John 14:26 and Jesus further teaches, "Whoever remains in me and I in Him will bear much fruit, because without me you do nothing." John 15:5 There is no doubt that life here on earth has no value without God. For we are the children of God, isn't that so exciting to know that the God of the universe is our Father. The very first verse of the entire bible states, "In the beginning, when God created the Heavens and the earth;" Genesis 1:1 There is only one God, and that one God is our Father. To further confirm this magnificent truth let us look at John 1:1, "In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God."
Even though this world desires to discredit, destroy and remove the bible; it has remained to be thee single most read and studied book of all times. It also has been the most quoted and distributed worldwide book ever. Please take the time to embrace this magnificent book, so many of us have one, but we don't spend enough time inside its pages. We are really nothing without God; once we really understand the power in that statement I think then we will see and know that our lives are only complete with Him. Our worshiping God should include: reading, studying, teaching and preaching the word. "Be eager to present yourself as acceptable to God, a workman who causes no disgrace, imparting the word of truth without deviation." 2 Timothy 2:15
The kingdom that God has for us, is for His children, for those who are just, for they shall inherit the kingdom of God. "Do you not know that the unjust will not inherit the kingdom of God?" 1 Corinthians 6:9 Just take a look at the Beatitudes, so many verses help guide us to the Father. Also who else do you want with you?, "If God is for us, who can be against us?" Romans 8:31 God is our Father, let us cry out to Him, "For those who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you received a spirit of adoption , through which we cry, Abba, Father!" Romans 14:15 I simply love scripture, back in 1983 when my entire world changed and my spirit found Jesus; I read the entire bible cover to cover, I've done that about 3 times in the past 27 years. I tell you this to say that from that experience I wrote a Complete Bible Directory, which I copyrighted, for no purpose. It was just so much fun to do, a select few people in my life back then watched me on the old typewriter typing all those pages. Technology wasn't what it is today. My love for scripture through the years has only deepened. I invite you to find God in His word so that He can find Him in you.
Discover the generosity and love God has for you in His word.
Your brother in Christ Jesus & His Most Blessed Mother,
