Let all the world look to me for salvation! For I am God; there is no other.” (Isaiah‬ ‭45‬:‭22‬ NLT)

Buddhism began around 500 BC, Hinduism around 1700 BC, and Islam around 600 AD. While there is MUCH room for interpretation here among their followers, none of them were around when God created the world. When He fashioned Man, God put a component in him that creates a hunger to worship. The natural fit was the Creator, but Man is a restless, flawed character, chasing and inventing other avenues of worship instead of what we were created for.

God’s call for salvation through His Son, Jesus, empowered through the Holy Spirit, echoes around the world daily. Imagine His frustration as He oversees the world, keeping everything around us moving, yet having to watch us worship our bodies, chase our lusts, glorify the lives of fallen people, invent new religions, and even worship the only other spiritual entities out there, the Angelic and the Demonic. Any lesser deity would start chunking lightning bolts! But God is patient and loving, so He continues to call out to fallen humanity to come back to its true home.

While there are plenty out there in Readerland that will disagree with me, and that’s fine, God is still there calling Mankind back to the purpose of creation: To simply live in the true contentment of God’s presence, like Eden was created to be. Find your Eden all over again, the place where God waits for you! Then join your family at Church this weekend and share the moment with the rest of us! You are loved!
