God is Gracious
Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth.” Genesis 11:4
We spend a large percentage of our lifetime climbing the corporate ladder. Some of us make it further than we ever dreamed and some even make it to the top. But then what? Do we ever feel satisfied with our position? Is our current title, our fame and our fortune ever enough?
Whether we know it or not, we all have a yearning to be in a relationship with our Creator. It is the missing link to finding fulfillment. Yet, history shows that man has always strived to build a legacy for himself by himself. Not long after God flooded the earth to remove all wickedness from it, the people of the world tried to build a tower to reach the heavens on their own accord. But God stopped them. He had already provided a way for man to reach Him, but the gift was rejected. Nothing we do in our own strength can bring us into a right relationship with our Holy God. We must accept God’s provision -- Jesus. It’s that simple.
Jesus said “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
Because God is gracious, through Jesus we can be in relationship with the Creator, our Heavenly Father.
