Imagine an organic, super computer that runs at the speed of light and is dynamically connected to every person in the world. The computer I am describing is able to instantly read, catalogue and archive every thought, word, and deed of every living thing, every motive as well as each event as it is occurring, as well as track and forecast how each one acts upon the others so that it instantaneously and continually sees everything as only one thing, and each one thing as everything.

Imagine there being a record of every word, thought, action, and motive of every person since the beginning to time - A record that could be accessed in a moment’s notice and used to accuse or excuse one before God.

By now you may be aware that what I am talking about really does exist, perhaps not in an organic state, but exist it does. What am I talking about? It is the mind of God. (And, btw, God is not a computer … that’s just an analogy.)

Does this at all make you want to apply for a disc cleaner, an information removal program, some way to delete your history?

God knows everything, and He keeps records! (Revelation 20:21)

Romans 11
33 ¶ Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!
34 "For who has known the mind of the LORD? Or who has become His counselor?"

The mind of God … what a terrible thing to waste!

35 "Or who has first given to Him And it shall be repaid to him?"
36 For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.

Of Him - Creation

God is the Creator of all things

All things have their origin in Him

We owe Him everything

Through Him - Providence

God is the sustainer of all things

By His direct acts we continue

Without His intervention, we cannot maintain life

If it does not go through God is has no life

To Him - Redemption

God is the end of all things

When it is all said and done, there is God

Every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess …

Romans 12
1 ¶ I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Transform your life by renewing you mind to see God as the:

Source of everything

God made you … He made you! And God is intrinsically and dynamically connected to you, your every thought, every deed, every motive and he sees everything you do. He also sees every event in the universe and knows how it will affect you because he sees everything as only one thing and one thing as everything!

Providence and Provider

End of all things

You did not get here without Him

You can’t stay here without Him

And where you are going, you certainly do not want to go without Him!

3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.

Anyone who thinks that they got here all by themselves
Anyone who thinks that they can live life all by themselves
Anyone who thinks they die all by themselves

Is drunk --- not thinking soberly --- but foolishly!

God has given you enough faith to realize these things … and of course, even that faith came from Him!

You are saved by grace, through faith, and that not of yourselves!

You Need God!

Remember the super computer analogy? Well, there is a life/history cleaner … His name is Jesus, and His blood wipes away all sin!

Today His blood is available for you!

You can delete your past sins, clean up your life, and begin a new history today!
