Known, Consecrated, and Appointed
Series: Pentecost
The Bible tells us that God desires relationship with us. The prophet Jeremiah tells us that God “knows” us, and God wants us to “know” him. God lets us know that we are “consecrated” or worthy of this relationship. And we are “appointed” with purpose through which we can deeply experience God and this life we are given.

    Where Were You

As we grow in our understanding of God, it seems God will always still be a mystery to us. We are not God. Yet God creates us and speaks to us and draws us closer.

And when we do find ourselves in God’s presence, we can say with King Solomon, surely God has already given us everything we could ever ask for and more.

    In the face of dire circumstances, God wants us to experience salvation. And God wants to include us in the process. God wants us to know He is with us. And God wants us to know that we are “mighty warriors.” We are His children created with Divine Potential.
