Born of God
We are born of God; therefore, we are good. Humankind is God’s greatest creation. We cannot forget this. The Gospel of john begins: “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God.” God is before all else; there is nothing before God; there is nothing but God.
The Solomon in Proverbs reminds us: “The Lord possessed me in the beginning of His way, before His works of old.” God knows us before He creates us. When he creates us, we are perfect. God creates nothing but perfection. Therefore, we are perfect in His eyes. We can recognize this godly perfection in all whom we meet. This is God’s will.
Society leads us from this lighted path. Society cannot exist on a selfless God-given path without setting itself as the main influence in our lives. With God as the core of our existence, society has less hold on our daily lives. Society’s norms are a nuisance that Jesus asks us to overcome.
As humans, we are not perfect; our bodies must die. But our spiritual selves are perfect and live eternal lives. Nevertheless, as humans, we must recognize God in all whom we meet. This is God’s lighted path. On this path, we are God’s perfect creations. Can we see the perfect creation of God in all whom we meet? Are we filled with God’s Love? The light of Jesus gives us the fulfillment we need to live in God’s perfect world. Jesus is our fulfillment.
