What does it mean that God is “FOR US”?
The goal of grace is to
create a love relationship between God and us who believe the kind of
relationship we were first made for.
The revelation of the New
Testament is that God is our heavenly Father, we are His children and He
is “FOR US”. We could say that how well a person understands
Christianity is related to how much he makes of the thought of being
God’s child, and having God as his Father. If God being your Father
doesn’t motivate, and control your worship and prayers and your whole outlook on life. You don’t understand Christianity very well.
God being for me has nothing to do with my ability, my performance, or
my obedience. Once you set qualifications for God being for you, you
have left grace and have put yourself back under the law. If you don't
know or believe that God is for you because of what God decided about
you in eternity past and then sent his own son to become a man and take
your place, pay for your sins on the cross and rise from the dead to
secure your justification and secure your place in the Father's family.
Then you don't really know the God of the bible and you will live in
fear and insecurity. I get up every day thanking God that he is for me!
