God’s ATTRACTIVENESS Transcends Our Wildest Imagination!

How we exalt or lift up the so-called freedom of the will of man! There are those who teach that because of our human freedom, we can ignore, reject, or resist God.

Yes, man is created with freedom of choice, but he is created in the image of God – and God is attracted to beauty and goodness. Thus, man is created to be attracted to what is beautiful. You don’t need to force him to appreciate what has attracted him.

But there are those who teach that you could ignore or reject the Greatest Attraction – God Himself!

Do you love a good song or melody? Are you captivated by the beauty of God’s creation, or by the lady or guy who is now your spouse?

God does not just deserve our usual admiration. If we behold His Goodness, Greatness, or Grandeur – we don’t even have to be commanded to love Him with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our strength, and with all our mind!

If we are aware of His Attractiveness or Desirability, we cannot just ignore or resist Him. The psalmist declared, “Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you” ( Ps. 73:25).

Truly, only he who is spiritually dead, or spiritually blind can ignore and reject salvation. They are ignorant of it. They are not aware that He is offering Himself – Who is the Only Good and Divinely Attractive – and He is our Salvation!
