Questions are a big part of our thinking. Seldom do we spend time thinking that doesn’t involve questions. Here are a few questions you may have asked while spending time thinking. And while you are thinking, if you think of other questions then ask the question in the comments section below. We will attempt to answer it.
1) What is love? – Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Now that we know what love is we can now apply 1 John 4:7 which calls us to love one another. Go ahead and hug someone, do something nice and tell them “I love you”… It’s OK, you are allowed.
2) Who is Jesus? – Ah, now that’s a good question. Jesus asked it too. So it must be good. He said, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” The responses ranged from John the Baptist, Elijah, Jeremiah or one of the prophets. Thankfully Peter replied “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Matthew 16:13-17
Thomas agreed too in John 20:28. Today Jesus is everything we need. He is life, truth, hope and above all He is love! Invite the name above all names into your life now and experience Him for yourself.
3) When is Jesus returning? – The answer to this particular question is really simple. No man or woman knows when Jesus is returning (Matthew 24:36). However, the question should still be asked. The word of God provides warning signs that point to his return (Luke 21:10-11 and Luke 21:25-28). The word also tell us to be watchful and ready Luke 21:34-36.
Know this: The music is playing and soon it will stop. When will it stop? Who knows. But you better find a chair when it does stop. And not just any chair… but a sparkling clean chair. We must be faithful until the very end. Revelation 22:20-21
4) Why should I attend church? – In short see question #3… Jesus is returning! That’s all the incentive you need. Attend because He is returning soon.
Looking at this further, you should attend church so that you can be encouraged and so you can be an encouragement (Hebrews 10:24-25). Also, it’s the time we praise and worship God. He deserves a good ole fashion pep rally! Psalm 150:1-6
5) Where did God come from? – God is the beginning. God is also the end. He is the first and the last, the alpha and omega (Revelation 22:13)
Try separating something that is the beginning and something that is also the ending. It’s impossible! In our lives we have seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years which define our life’s existence. We have a birth date, we have deadlines to meet and we wake up by an alarm clock. God does not operate by time. He has always been here. God said it best when he told Moses, “I am who I am” Exodus 3:14. In other words, He has always been and always will be.
6) How can I please God? – First, you must believe. We cannot please God if we do not believe. We must have faith! (Hebrews 11:6) Second, you must live your life according to the Spirit. We cannot allow our flesh to be ruler. Instead, you must allow the Spirit to rule your flesh (Romans 8:5 and Romans 8:8). Third, You must love and share with others (Hebrews 13:16)
Imagine walking across a 500ft high tight rope… you can walk that tight rope above nothing but a concrete hard surface or you can walk that tight rope with a plush safety net between you and the concrete. Most of us would pick the plush safety net! When we please God then He becomes our net of safety. You inherit great and mighty benefits when you please God! 1 John 3:22
