“God wants you back.”
God wants you to be a garden person; He wants you to walk with Him, to live in relationship with Him. He wants you to know His love for you.
He wants your life to be the daily outworking of bringing the life of the heavenly realm into the earthly realm: “Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). And what is His will? The expression of His life and love on the earth.
This kind of God-life brings life, and joy, and healing.
It brings reconciliation with God.
Another way of saying this is that it brings salvation.
How do we enter this kind of life?
It’s fairly simple, really.
It’s an intriguing idea, isn’t it? Are there four words that hold the power to change lives? Can any words really contain that kind of power, that kind of hope, that kind of transformation?
Can only four words do that?
Obviously, I think the answer to that is Yes.
But please note the verb: Can. Not will. Why the distinction? Because words alone are merely words. In themselves they don’t hold the ability to do anything. They simply are. It’s what we choose to do with them that matters. The choices are really yours.
Accept … or reject.
Act … or ignore.
Hope … or do.
Four little words. They can be transforming … or not.
It’s up to you.
