God smiles when His children desire to fellowship with Him. When they want Him to be an integral part of their lives. God when we spend time studying His word, the Bible. He also smiles when we show our love for Him and seek Him in prayer, both for asking Him to meet our needs and in thanking Him for what He does in our lives.
God frowns when His creation ignores Him. God frowns when we do not care to please Him and even may be hostile. God tells us in the familiar Bible verse, John 3:16, that He loves all of His creation (the world). Logic tells us, therefore, that He wants fellowship with each and everyone of us.
You can change God’s frown to a smile simply by deciding to get to know Him and what His plan is for your life. You can begin this journey by traveling down the Roman Road.
Romans 3:23 states, “that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” The all includes you and me. We can’t help but slip and offend a Holy God.
Romans 6:23 tells us that “the wages of sin is death.” This is not a physical death; it is separation from God for eternity.
Romans 5:8 informs us of the beginning of the solution to the dangerous future. “But God demonstrated His love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us!”
Romans 10:9 gives us the next step, “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Romans 8:1 gives us the confirmation, “there is therefore no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
But it doesn’t end here. There is so much more to learn about our loving, awesome God. The Bible is filled with information about the great gifts and benefits we are to receive. Check it out.
We have much to learn about Heaven, which is the destination only for the ‘saved’. 1 Corinthians 2:9 says, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
It is also important to learn how the Holy Spirit is involved with our daily lives. John 14:26 informs us that “the Helper, the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My (Jesus) name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” Jesus talks with us via the Bible. In addition, the Holy Spirit helps us to pray; back to the book of Romans (8:26) we find, “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses, for we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us.”
Now you have the opportunity to make God smile.
