Extant (1 Corinthians 8:4-6)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “extant.”  The existence of God has always been on the minds of people, both now and way back. I love when people try to discount the existence of God because is someone believes that God existed then why even enter into the conversation? In his letter to the Corinthians, the apostle Paul reiterates that it is because of Christ that we are in existence at all.

Yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.
~1 Cor 8:6

My question is: what are some of the big questions that you have on your mind for God? I know that sometimes it is difficult to believe, not because you are a bad person but because we all have questions. I remember when I first became a Christian I had a ton of questions. And, now in all of my wisdom later on in life I realize that I don't have those questions… I have those questions, and more! It is okay for Christians to question God, but not his existence or power. My prayer for you is that God brings peace to any doubts that might be in your mind. We exist because God has allowed us to be. Take that message of joy to the world.

Praying for you
