At times we may wonder if God cares about us as individuals and whether he is interested in us and cares about what happens to us. Does he? Is God interested in me? Is God too busy to be interested in me as an individual? Does he have so much to do that I’m lost in the crowd and neglected? The answers to such questions would surely encourage us as we go through the struggles of life. Where can we find the answers? The most reliable book and revered book ever written has to be the Holy Bible. What doesthe Bible have to say on such questions and matters? Is God interested in me as on individual? * John 3:16 (AMP) | “For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction,
be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.” The word ”whosoever” extends to everyone, including you and including me. * 1 Timothy 2:4 tells us that will of God is that “all” men should be saved. He wants all mankind to be saved and we are part of mankind. So, that means that we individually matter to God. * 2 Peter 3:9 uses the words “you” and “any” to include all individuals. Not one of us can justifiable exclude ourselves by saying that we don’t matter, that God does not care about us, and that we are hopeless and beyond God’s love and care. So, open your Bible to 1 Peter 5:7 where it specifically mentions that God cares about you. You and I are not unimportant to God. We matter. He cares for us. He is concerned about us. He loves us! http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2003287?q=Is+God+interested+in+me%3F&p=par http://www.biblegateway.com/verse/en/John%203:16 ________________ Reposted column.
