Does God care?

To answer this question I refer you to two evidences of God’s care. The first is the conscience. In every human being God has placed a moral conscience. It is this that helps us to make decisions that are right, for example, supporting and helping one another. It is what impresses a feeling of guilt when we do what is wrong, for example, unkind words and hurtful actions against one another. In this context the Bible teaches us we are made in God’s image but sadly are affected by sin, pain and distress in a fallen world. However there still remain evidences of God’s image within us. So there is love, kindness, care and commitment among people in this world.

The second evidence is the gift of His only Beloved Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. He took upon Himself a body and lived a perfect life, and at the end of His life went to Calvary’s cross and there He suffered and died, as the Saviour of sinners, to make all those who trust in Him right with God.

The conscience and the cross are two evidences that God does care. The Apostle Peter at the end of his life wrote two letters and in one of them we find this instruction. “Casting all your care upon Him for He cares for you” 1 Peter 5 vs 7

The care Peter was teaching about here is God’s care for our most precious possession, the soul, the eternal part of our being. In God’s care, as we trust only in Him, even when faced with death, our soul is cared for by Him and we are taken to be with Him in Heaven.

Does God care? Yes, He cares through the conscience and the cross and cares eternally for those who believe in Him!

"Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness."

Lamentations 3 vs 22-23
