Hidden God Lehi Campus

THINK ABOUT IT: True LOVE cannot be forced or coerced.   

TODAY’S QUESTION: Why does God seem so hidden?

Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

MISCONCEPTION: The problem isn’t that we CAN’T see, the problem is that we don’t WANT to see.

Romans 1:18-20 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

Matthew 12:22-24 Then they brought him a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him, so that he could both talk and see. 23 All the people were astonished and said, “Could this be the Son of David?” 24 But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.”

John 16:7-16 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8 When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 about sin, because people do not believe in me; 10 about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; […] 15 All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.” 16 Jesus went on to say, “In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me.”

If God exists, it is reasonable that He would remain hidden (to some degree) to allow us the freedom to respond from a position of love, rather than fear. J. Warner Wallace

 

  • Love requires FREEDOM.

 

  1. Love requires TRUST.
  2. Love requires EVIDENCE.
  3. Love requires a RESPONSE.

TODAY’S KEY TRUTH: God has given us sufficient EVIDENCE for His existence and the right evidence to not be COERCIVE.

BOTTOM LINE: When love is uncoerced, love is GENUINE.
