He is a great God who created anything – take a look at around us, trees, flowers, grass, etc. God is fabulous who created us, sea, and anything. He would die and sacrifice for us.

Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
Jesus stands infront of the door and knocks it. Jesus told this verse to us. Even though, we are Christians, does Jesus really live in our hearts? Or He just lives outside us?
Jesus wants to be our best friend. If we want joy, let us open our hearts to Jesus.
