Proverbs 15:3 “The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.”
Being eternal and seeing the past, present, and future must help in seeing what is most important.
1 Timothy 2:3-4 “This is good, and pleases God our savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
- God is all about relationship.
- We may even do the right actions, but not please Him if we aren’t in relationship with Him.
Matthew 7:22 “Many will say to me on that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophecy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles? Then I will tell them plainly, “I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers.”
- If God desires something then it must come into action.
- Nothing can stop the will of God.
- God gets what He wants.
- God gave man the ability to choose to love Him.
- Sin prevents us from thinking, feeling and seeing properly.
- God has provided everything that He needs for us to be able to be in right relationship with Him.
- God could do everything by himself.
- He chooses to work through His children and His church.
Matthew 28: 18-20 “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
GOD’S EYES ARE ON THOSE HE LOVES AND
THOSE HE WANTS TO BE IN A LOVING RELATIONSHIP WITH.
Matthew 15: 1-7 “Now the tax collectors and “sinners” were all gathering around to hear him. 2 But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.”
3 Then Jesus told them this parable: 4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?”
5 ”And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.”
There are only two times the Bible tells us there will be a celebration in heaven:
- When a sinner repents.
- At the wedding feast of the Lamb.
What does God see?
- He sees those who are lost.
- He sees that the best way to reach them is you and me.
- He sees how important it is for them to respond to the gospel.
