DO YOU GET GOD?

Do you realize God is your friend?

SAUL OF Tarsus certainly did not understand God when he set out to destroy God’s people. After his conversion, however, he became known as the apostle Paul and among his many writings is Titus 1:1–3. In these verses, it is evident his understanding of God is inspired and deep. Paul “got God.” Do you get God? Here’s a short test. Replace Paul’s name with yours, substitute “joint heir” for “apostle,” and replace “servant” with “friend” in Titus 1:1–3 and I think you’ll understand:

“[Your name], a [friend] of God and [a joint heir] of Jesus Christ for the faith of God’s elect and the knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness—a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time, and at his appointed season he brought his word to light through the preaching entrusted to me by the command of God our Savior …”

“When Jesus saw their faith, he said, ‘Friend, your sins are forgiven.’” (Luke 5:20)

Wow! This is a powerful, timely, and essential statement you must commit your life to. God calls you “friend” and “joint heir.” This means that everything he has, does, and is, you have, do, and are. Don’t walk around moping as if you lost something. You are a valuable asset to the kingdom of God.

Your faith and knowledge are resting on the hope of eternal life. This contract has been in existence from before the beginning of time. It’s been guaranteed by a Man who can’t lie. It’s been sealed by the blood of Jesus. God exalts his Word above his name. Do you get it?

The appointed season is now. The right place is exactly where you are. You are on loan from heaven and God is waiting on you now to preach the Word he’s entrusted to you. The times are evil, people are in trouble, and suffering abounds. The need for God’s light to shine is unequivocally evident. Use your training, gifts, talents, and abilities, your friendship with God, for his glory. Get off the bench and get into the game. Do you get it? I ask again, “Do you get God?” His love? His plan?

Prayer:

Lord, you called Abraham your friend because he believed. When you saw the faith of a paralytic on a mat and those who carried him, you called them friend. You’ve entrusted me with the knowledge of your love for me as a friend and servant. As your friend, Lord, I will share your light and friendship. I do get you, God!
