This week Pastor Ken had this to say:
According to the Westminster Confession, the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. We were originally created to walk with God in the cool of the day in a beautiful and peaceful garden where there was no sin or rebellion. God made human beings for His own pleasure, to be in communion with Him constantly. Then came the fall where man sinned and was wrenched from that blissful enviornment and cast out into a harsh and threatening existence where no hope existed. Human things like jealousy and hatred arose and the first murder happened. Life was hard and man became a worker of the fields by the sweat of his brow and women began to experience the pain of childbirth as penalty for their sin. We were all born with a fallen nature. Our first and foremost bent was toward darkness and sin. There was no way on earth that we could turn toward God in our own strength. We didn't even know that God existed until in His grace, He provided a way to approach the Great Throne of Grace. By grace He drew us to His throne. He placed a spark of grace into us to let us know that there is a God and that our self was not Him.
Jesus came to make the way for us! By His life, death and resurrection, the Holy of Holies was opened for each one of us to return to the days when the Lord walked with us in the garden. Each day as a born-again Christian should be a Garden of Eden Experience.
But, I want to say that I believe the world is perishing for lack of knowledge of God and the Church of Jesus Christ is famished for want of His presence. I don't know if we have stopped believing or if we have merely become complacent, but the instant cure for most of our spritual ills would be to enter the Presence of God by the spiritual experience of Entire Sanctification. Scripture tells us to ask for it and that God is faithful and will make it happen. It's available if you desire to walk with God in His original intent for humankind.
