"Have ye not read what David did" - Relationship between Mankind and God


Relationship between Mankind and God

The most unique point about Christ Jesus is that He declared that He was sent by God to this world.

He also called God the Father.  This has been the strongest relationship between a man and God in the human history.  In this context, Christ Jesus is above Abraham, Moses, and any other holy prophets.

If we believe His words, we should respect all of His words as so holy.  But if you cannot believe that Christ Jesus was sent by God to the world 2000 years ago, you would not be able to understand the meaning of His words.

Christianity rests on this conviction.  It means that there is God and He sent Christ Jesus to this world to save it 2000 years ago.  It is so simple, but it is beyond our commonsense.

Most of people would think that there might be God who created this universe.  But there must be many who cannot believe that He gave special spirits to mankind so that mankind can have special intellectual power and spiritual sense.  Those people think that their minds have nothing to do with God.  They may even think that they happen to have the capacity of their minds so that they are free in using their minds in whatever way.  But if you admit that God gave capacity of human minds, you have to feel so obliged to use your minds in line with the will of God.

So, if you believe that Christ Jesus was sent by God to this world 2000 years ago, you may think that it must be for turning human minds to God.

But you cannot see God like the sun.  You may think how you can believe in God if God exists as He cannot be seen and felt around you or anywhere in this world and furthermore as He has nothing to do with your mind work.

However, the Bible says that what is seen is made of what cannot be seen.  Indeed, a man is made of his mind and soul that cannot be seen, though his physical body can be seen.  For example, a life of a man is essentially made of love of whatever sort.  Maybe it is love for God or for material wealth, but you need love to live as human beings.

Unless Christ Jesus had come to this world 2000 years ago, mankind must have continued to live without enough love for God.  Christ Jesus came to this world to emphasize that God loves each man but requests him to love God in return.  But He also gave a notice that the Kingdom of God cannot be seen.

No matter what advanced scientific equipment we might use, we cannot see God.  Only we have to realize His presence through our faith.

Anyway, the relationship between God and each man is the most important issue for him.  And, if you don't put the highest priority on this relationship, you will surely lose the absolute framework of your life.  You may commit any crimes and sins if you are so attempted for worldly reasons.

Even to solve the global terrorism and the global warming, we have to start our faith in God and to consider our relationship with God.

Mat 12:3 But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was an hungred, and they that were with him;
Mat 12:4 How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests?
