Involvement In Church and Your View of God

A big part of your involvement in the church is your view of God. I’m saying, the goodness of God. If you don’t think that God is better than the alternative, you’ll choose the alternative, whatever it is that you think is better instead of God. Do you think God is the best? This is living by faith. Hebrews 11 says that without faith it is impossible to please God. You won’t please God if you don’t believe in Him. When you aren’t believing in Him, what are you believing in? It has to be something He created, including yourself. That’s right. You are putting yourself ahead of God, or other things ahead of God. This is idolatry. God isn’t pleased by idolatry. So. This is a matter of the goodness of God. I’m talking about this with people almost every day. They think they are good. They think they treat other people nice. They are impressed with themselves. However, they are obviously not impressed with God. To them, God exists to serve them. The Bible begins with God being good. First day of creation, good, second day, good, and so forth until the all seven days of creation are over, and that is very good. The basis for future decisions, future yielding to God, is whether you believe He is the source of good. If you do, then you will follow what God says according to His Word. God also makes up the rules, and that too is part of His goodness. Obedience to Him may not seem like it got a good result in the short term, but it always will in the long term. Doing what He says despite short term loss is living by faith, believing in Him.
