WHAT’S SO GOOD ABOUT LIFE!
God Fills what He Forms!
We Find these two truths to be self evident in Genesis
1) God is Pro Life
2) God is Pro Life in all its fullness
The church must be both PRO LIFE and PRO LIFE IN FULLNESS!!!
Not just to see people live… but to also help them find the blessing of full life
Two LIFE GIVING Attributes of our PRO LIFE GOD
GOD FILLS WITH LIFE AND GOD REMOVES EMPTINESS
#1 WHAT GOD FORMS, GOD FILLS WITH LIFE IN FULL
A) First God Formed and then He Filled Creation
B) God Formed Man and then Filled man
“then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature” (Ge 2:7, ESV).
C) God Formed the Church and then He filled the church
When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. 2 And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. 3 And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:1–4, ESV).
#2 WHERE GOD FINDS EMPTINESS, GOD FILLS WITH LIFE IN FULL
Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” (Ge 2:18)
Not Good For Man to Be Alone
It is consistent in the scripture that where God sees EMPTY things, His nature is to enter in and fill it. He hates to see EMPTY things remain EMPTY
(Lk 14:15–24) When one of those who reclined at table with him heard these things, he said to him, “Blessed is everyone who will eat bread in the kingdom of God!” 16 But he said to him, “A man once gave a great banquet and invited many. 17 And at the time for the banquet he sent his servant to say to those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’ 18 But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, ‘I have bought a field, and I must go out and see it. Please have me excused.’ 19 And another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to examine them. Please have me excused.’ 20 And another said, ‘I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.’ 21 So the servant came and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house became angry and said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor and crippled and blind and lame.’ 22 And the servant said, ‘Sir, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.’ 23 And the master said to the servant, ‘Go out to the highways and hedges and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled. 24 For I tell you, none of those men who were invited shall taste my banquet.’ ”
