Lost Crusader #225 Who Cares?

“Casting all your care upon Him, for He careth for you.” 1 Peter 5:7

 

It is a cornerstone of Christian thought that the relationship between God and human beings is a uniquely personal one. Unlike the Diest who believes God created everything then sat back to watch His creation spin like a dreidel, the Christian believes that God is involved with every individual, at every moment. In His Sermon on the Mount Jesus reminded us that God is deeply involved in caring for us.


Not only is that true, but it is also not the complete story. While God cares for us, He also cares about us. No place is God more like a father than in His care. He wants to supply us with everything we need and the things that make us happy. To really do so, He wants to be an integral part of our life, to be involved in the decisions we make, the actions we take, and the thoughts that we think.


I question my faith when I hear people say, “God doesn’t care about___.” It makes me wonder if I really know God. The One I pray to cares about everything I think, do, and say. He cares about what I wear, where I go, who I make friends with, and endless other things in a way that reminds me of my earthly dad.


He doesn’t do it to be nosey or up in my business. There’s no need, He already knows. That does not preclude His wanting to be invited in to be a part of my life. I believe people would find God cares about a lot more than they give Him credit for if only they’d invite Him into the decision.

Since God cares about me as an individual, I don’t expect others to do as I do. I do think there is a certain conformity to Christianity. Everyone is to conform to God’s will for them in the application of His principles. However, there is also an essential need for transformation. We are meant to be changed from the person we were before meeting God into the person He wishes us to be.


How we balance the two and get to where God wants us to be is to be worked out between us and God. Ultimately, it is we alone who will reap the just reward of those decisions, good or bad. Be not deceived, God is not mocked as a man sows, so also shall he reap. God cares about that outcome.
