Today’s Truth: We Long for God

God is the ultimate giver of life. There are some wonderful things that man has done and invented, like walking on the moon or creating 21st century communication, but we will never be able to accomplish what only God can do: create and give life. In this world today we see how desperately man wants to explain creation without God and how he wants to do the things that God can do, but it is impossible. Only God can do what God can do.

2 Corinthians 5:4 says, “While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life.” As Christians, we tend to long for eternity in heaven. Sometimes it is because of the troubles we face in this life and other times it is because of the closeness we feel to God. We know that He is the giver of life. He gives and takes away. He is the only explanation for all things. So while we’re here on this earth, we can live a life for Him, put on the things of God since we are a new creation, and carry the gospel message wherever we go.

We can be the evidence of God, the work of His hands. We can show the world how real He is by the way that we live and act. We can be His living miracles by sharing our testimonies of what He has done in our lives.
