Taking responsibility

Posted on Posted in Character, Responsibility

God decided to make a being in His image,
… a being created in His likeness,
… who would look after creation,
… who would take responsibility for creation,

      Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image,
      according to Our likeness; let them have dominion …
      … over all the earth …
      Gen 2:7

      A being that would live for His glory,
      … and who would worship Him as God Almighty.

However, for worship to be real, to be true,
… worship has to be based on a free will.
Therefore God gave man a free will,
… so that man could be all that God planned for man to be.

      Although knowing that a free will means … No Restrictions,
      … even considering the limitless possibilities,
      … and the dangers of having a free will,
      God still went through with His plan.

How did God deal with those unpredictable possibilities?

God’s choice was,

      just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world
      that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,
      Eph 1:4

‘I will take the responsibility for man’s free will,
… so man is free to make his own choice.
I will also take the responsibility for man’s wrong choice,
… by allowing man to correct his bad choice through his free will.

Thus enabling man to take the responsibility I set before him.
… and to step into that place where man can
… truly and freely worship Me!’
