Starting Somewhere

One just need to start somewhere
Words In  Season:

Better start somewhere with God, grow and rise through the ranks, than be completely alienated from Him.
                  A kingdom Patriot

Bearing:

".....then men began to call upon the Name of The LORD" Genesis 4:26b


Bottomline:
Could Adam and Eve, despite their fallen state and having been driven out of the garden of Eden still be in a level of relationship with God?
Because when Eve gave birth to Cain in Genesis 4:1, she still acknowledged God as the giver. "....I have gotten a man from The Lord"

An indication that she and Adam may not be completely alienated from God, despite the issue they had with Him in the garden of Eden. The lesson here is that no matter the level of the relationship, we should start somewhere with God. We should be open minded and be willing to grow in grace and in His knowledge as we keep getting closer to Him. Then keep pressing on, the upward way with Him, until our love for Him surpass what we stand to gain from from Him, or escape from His punishments. Because God's original purpose for creating man is to fellowship and walk with Him, partake of His divine nature and creative activities in His universe. That was why He made man in His Even at that, having redeemed man now from his fallen state, His ultimate goal is still that man be conformed to His image.  And at His coming, as many as are redeemed of Him shall be exactly like Him in physical appearance.
But is it not a pity that the purpose of men serving God, even the most zealous among them all is so as not to miss heaven?
Or is that motive and intent not self preservatory? So supposing there is nothing like heaven or hell? Then many committed men we see in our churches and fellowships today would have been spending their time in night clubs, between two babe alongside bottles of choice whiskeys with fat Havana cigars in their mouths to match! But because they don't want to go to hell and miss heaven now............not really for the love of God and His kingdom...........we leave that as story for another day.......

"....when He shall appear, we shall be like Him..." IJohn 3:2b.
And as many as are of fertile imaginations, let them read Revelation 1:13 - 16. Then let them hazard a guess of the the new physical form and shape we will be changed into, when He comes.
Yet we all need to start somewhere with God, from where we are and just as we are.
I know you must have started somewhere with Him. Having been going to Church regularly for years, even for decades. You have chaired the church adult harvest celebrations on many occasion and you have been ordained a deacon now eyeing the chair of an elder. Good. At least you began somewhere. Only that you need to take a step further, and if you have not even set sail at all with God, come along by repenting of your sins, confessing them and believing on His Son Jesus Christ. And let Him save you and your household.
