Accepting God As He Is

   We need to accept God as He is, and not as we wish Him to be.

   Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect (Matthew 5:48). How can we change perfection? To change perfection is to make God imperfect; and the Lord will never change to a lesser state than perfection. If He did, He would not be God. “For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed” (Malachi 3:6).

   People are the ones who need to change. Jesus told Nicodemus, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God” (John 3:3b-5).

   First people are born in the flesh. A mother’s water breaks and a child is born. Then Jesus explained that a person also needs to be born of the Spirit (accept Jesus as your Savior) and God gives you a new nature.

   God is perfect, good, loving, kind, fair, honest, holy, righteous…. Jesus is a good God and He loves you. What good attribute would you want to change in God? I don’t want to change the Lord in any way. I am glad that the Lord is good and that He loves us and He made a way for us to go to heaven. Stay just as You are Jesus. You are perfect!

God Bless
