People, the apex of God’s creation

God came down to earth in the form of his Son Jesus Christ. He chose to manifest himself in the body of a human being. Think about it for a moment.

He could have created a special creature to come to earth and be a physical manifestation of himself. He is God and he could have done anything or created anyone to come and live on this earth and then give him as a sacrifice for our sins.

Does He not love and care about humans, people, mankind more than anything else? God loves all people so much that He gave His Son for them. He created all creation such as animals, trees, rivers, mountains etc. But people are His special creation in which He chose to give them a spirit unlike the rest of His creation. We are special in God’s eyes.

Ah people, don’t you just love them? Take a look around you today as you go out. Notice people. No two alike. God really had fun when he created you. Why? Because you are created in His image, in the likeness of Him you where created. There is no one else on the planet like you. There has never been and will never be. Eternally different you are.

I have been blessed to work for a company that does not discriminate against people. They hire people from all walks of life, all sizes, shapes, colors, nationally etc. They hire people with physical and mental disabilities also. What a blessing to be around all of God’s creation. He created us just as we are. We are to love people just as they were created by God. It doesn’t matter what they talk like, what they look like, what kind of education they have etc. In God’s eyes it flat out doesn’t matter. He is no respecter of persons, neither should we be. We are no better than anyone else. (period)

The media and Hollywood have distorted what it is to be what we are. They have told us lies and have painted up pictures of false illusions that try and brain wash us into thinking that this is what we are suppose to look and act like. May God help us to not fall into the lie of this world.

So take some time out of your busy schedule and stop and notice people around you. Better yet, put the brakes on and strike up a conversion with someone you would have not in the pass taken the time to talk to. Maybe because of that persons looks, or the way they are dressed you haven’t stopped and said hello.

Make this your day to notice the vast differences in people. You will find how awesome they are because God created them. Little do we know, but people have looked at us and for some reason they have not wanted to stop and say hello to us. If the truth be known, maybe they didn’t like the way we were dressed, talked, walked or looked like.

People, they are all different in their own way. Beautiful as God has created them.
Amen.

    It’s frankly a fine way to live. I do what I can to speak with people as individuals rather than as a group. They’re more fun that way.

  2. rjperalta Says:

    Yes it is. We are all individuals before mankind and God. It is fun to experience the difference!
    Thanks for stopping by.
    Be blessed of God.

    Oh, I think I need to get back to the place of liking people. We’re all crazy and many of us aren’t very nice…

    Richard, thanks for posting this, bro. It really helps keep things in perspective!

    Greetings. It’s something to remember; that each one of us are created in the image of God and that we’re to love our neighbor as ourselves. Thanks for the great and needful exhortation.

    have a blessed day in Jesus.

    cbgrace,
    Amen! It starts one person at a time. The more you take the time to “reach out and touch someone”, God reaches in and helps.
    I know, if we are not careful we can began to go down that road of not being very nice to people. I say “turn” today and God will meet you.
    Much grace to you.

    Brother Johnny,
    You are welcome. It takes work doesn’t it. God’s grace is sufficient.
    Be blessed brother.

  8. rjperalta Says:

    Timbob,
    Very true! All where created in the image of God. He just wants us to lift up His Son so they can get back to The Father’s house. It all about reconciliation!
    Blessings of God be upon you.

    Richard,

    I miss you, bro…

    I hope all is well and am wondering whats been on your mind lately.
    Give us the scoop, man!

    Your brother,
    Johnny

    Brother Johnny,

    Well, it has been a real battle trying to do both working and street ministry. God has been good through it all though. I have been stretched. I have not had much time to get on the computer. I do see a day coming when I will have both time and posts to write.

    We had a good day out on the streets today. A man was delivered from drugs and his past. The demons show up also as we were preaching.(that’s always a good sign)

    Hope all is well with you and your family. Thanks for writing.

  19. brotherjohnny Says:

    Yes, time is very precious. I have had a little ‘extra’ lately, and am truly glad to interact with you all a bit lately.

    My family is well, Thank you!!!

    The devils cannot stand the declaration of the grand ultimate truth, that Jesus Christ is Lord of All!
    He will protest any liberation that is accomplished in the name of the Lord.

    I think sometimes that we are put into situations for our sake (which is also ultimately for His good…His names sake).
    We cannot always understand what the Lord is doing, but He does use it all for good.

    I thank God for His deliverance and His power to transform the lives of those who are drawn to Him.
    Likewise, I am thankful for the diligence of brothers and sisters like yourself and Susan, serving the Lord in any situation that you might find yourselves in.

    As it is written,
    ‘Consider yourself as alive from the dead’, Brother!
    YOU ARE ALIVE UNTO GOD!!!!!!!!

    Hallelujah!!!
    Jesus IS LORD!!!!
    ~Johnny

    Brother Johnny,
    Thank you!
    I agree with what you said, ” I think sometimes that we are put into situations for our sake”. I know I am learning a lot and being stretched also.
    In the end, by God’s grace it will work for His good! Praise Him!
    Thanks Bro.
