Absolute 26 Dec 2018
Mathematics have some wonderful functions. There exists a mathematical operation that turns a negative into a positive. It is named: the absolute value function.
How nice would it be when such an operation would exist in the ordinary life.
All my faults and negatives could be converted into meaningful and good things.
Impossible and nonsense would be the normal human response. But with God nothing is impossible.
In mathematics, absolute converts a negative into a positive.
God's Absolute Value
I quote Romans 8:28-31:
28 We are well aware that God works with those who love him, those who have been called in
accordance with his purpose, and turns everything to their good.
29 He decided beforehand who were the ones destined to be moulded to the pattern of his Son, so that he should be the eldest of many brothers;
30 it was those so destined that he called; those that he called, he justified, and those that he has justified he has brought into glory.
31 After saying this, what can we add? If God is for us, who can be against us?
In more popular words verse 28 says:
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him ...
For those who love God
My life has changed by praying:
Father God, please teach me how I can love you.
I am not perfect. Still, God has made my life beautiful. His power is absolute.
