Philosophers, gurus and folk artists each peddle their wares and find plenty of takers. Man in his emptiness will buy into the lies and then wonder why they are left famished and wasting away. Surely we are not here to only occupy space. Being unable to unravel their present and future purpose, the next pursuit carries them into the depths of the past. Turning around and peering into the chasm answers continue to elude them; only myriads of questions appear in an empty black hole. In ignorance they try to nail things down: Who am I? What am I here for? Where did I come from? When will this search end?
Is life really that complicated? Must we waste all our energies trying to unearth the mysteries of man kind’s existence? No, Solomon after admitting his quest shared his revelation, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter; Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man (Ecclesiastes 12: 13 KJV).” That unlocks the door to the passageway leading to the kingdom!
“Hello, my name is faith; I am a young child from the kingdom and have been waiting anxiously for your arrival!” There is so much I desire you to know. I have heard all your questions; but you never looked in my direction for the answers. Take my hand and trust me; I’ll guide you down the narrow path, to the gateway of the Kingdom! You’ll notice that wide path beside us is traveled by many. They decided that the majority must be right; friend they will never enter the Kingdom “Enter ye in at the straight gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because straight is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it (Matthew 7: 13-14 KJV).”
You search for who you are; the answer is found in whose you are “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them (Genesis1: 27 KJV).” You ask how what you need to do to fill your emptiness: “ Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God ( John 3:3 KJV).” Where is this kingdom? “Neither shall they say, lo here! Or, lo there! For, behold the kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:21 KJV).” When will the kingdom be revealed? “So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass (signs of His coming), know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand (Luke 21:31).” I guess you wonder why I came to answer your searching questions. The reason is very simple. “Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein (Mark 10: 15).” Are you ready? Just tell the Lord Faith sent you!
