Is God Lost?

Description

Why is God so hard to find? The answer lies in our freedom and God’s respect for it.

Why is God so hard to find? The answer lies in our freedom and God’s respect for it. He does not invade our space. We have chosen to push God out of our lives, and He will not violate that choice by pushing Himself back in. He has left abundant evidence of His existence in nature and dropped in telling clues of it from the supernatural realm.

But He remains behind the veil, knowing that if He forces his presence on us, we will have no choice but to believe, and the freedom He has given us will be compromised. We must repudiate our choice of self and express our desire for a restored relationship with God before He will move in.

Our choice of self over God also explains the continuing presence of evil in the world. The disobedience of the first couple opened the gates to evil, and in the name of freedom, God had to let their choice stand. But just as humankind chose to bring evil into a world of good, God now offers us the option to bring good back into a world of evil. We can invite God back into our lives and restore the lost relationship, thus finding authentic love and meaning in spite of the ravages of a world infested with evil and death.
