The Most Important Question Youll Ever Ask...

So the question is ....." What comes into your mind when you think about God?" I believe that this is the foundational question that every man should ask himself to determine his relationship with God. We have so many different things that we believe about God, and sometimes all that we do is take another mans beliefs about something and make them our own instead of seeking and searching for the answers ourselves. God is not hidden, He desires to reveal Himself to those who will seek Him and in Romans 1: 21, He says that He has revealed Himself and His attributes through His creation, but man chose not to call that which is revealed, God. So what comes into your mind when you think about God? I also think that in this modern era, we tend to leave out alot of who He is and alot of His attributes....things like His wrath , His hatred of sin, His thoughts of vomiting out lukewarmness....I mean, we hear so much and so much about His goodness and light, that we have redefined those words, part of what makes Him so good is His hate for evil; part of what make Him so full of light is His elimination of and power over darkness....I mean, to get to the greatest day of glory and His Kingdom and His new earth and perfection and glorification for us, His wrath has to be revealed against all sin. To get to the peak of happiness and eternal life, His judgment of unrighteousness must be brought forth. What im saying in short is, that God is complete, He is perfect and He is perfect in His opinions, ideas, convictions, thoughts and ways...but the question is, how does His perfection in all of these areas relate to us in our daily lives? Are we following Him and viewing Him through His perspective, or are we claiming that we are following Him and viewing Him through this world's perspective of Him ? through "our grandma's perspective of Him?" or through the media's perspective of Him?" What comes to your mind when you think about God???
