Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(1 Chronicles 1)
“Created to Know, Love, and Obey God”
Text: 1 Chron. 1:1-4
“Adam, Seth, Enosh,
Cainan, Mahalalel, Jared,
Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech,
Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.”
“Created to Know, Love, and Obey God,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. The Grand Purpose of God’s Creation of Mankind is to Know, Love, and Obey God; their Creator..
This first chapter summarizes all the generations of mankind from Adam to Abraham; and shows you and I that all of mankind today finds their roots in Adam and Noah.
God has created from one blood many nations for One Purpose: to Know, Love, and Obey God.
Paul spoke this Truth of God’s Creation and Purpose of Mankind to the philosophers on Mars Hill:
“And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,
so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;(Acts 17:26,27).
As I read these names with God’s Creative Purpose in mind, I reflected on how they lived, how they died, and how they either pointed others to God or pointed others away from God.
Each of them, like you and I, had their place in God’s work with mankind through the ages; either pointing others toward God or leading others Away from God - by the way they lived.
Let’s take a Lesson from Adam, Noah, and Abraham, who each had “their place” and “their time on earth” in God’s work with mankind; by recognizing that you and I each have “our place” and “our time on earth,” to point others to Our Commander Jesus Christ by the way we live “in our place and our time,” on earth today.
Paul said it this way:
“Therefore He says:
“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”
“See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise,
redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”(Eph.5:14-16).
These are desperate days we are living in today, and it’s our Time to Shine the Pathway to Jesus Christ by the Life We Live, Knowing, Loving, and Obeying our Commander and King Jesus Christ! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
