God, in His glorious love, explained His ways and His Kingdom to us in the Bible in a way we can understand. In physical, every day life we do many of the same things we find in the Bible (see We do as God does, Part 1 and We do as God does, Part 2). For example,
# Entrance or Immigration Requirements
- When we want to work for a desirable company, join an elite force or immigrate to another country, we have to fulfill certain requirements.
- Similarly we cannot just walk into God’s Kingdom. There are entrance requirements to pass out of the kingdom of darkness into God’s Kingdom of Light (from the broad road onto the narrow road). We need to repent (confess our sins), to believe in Jesus (accept His forgiveness), to be baptized in water (a symbol that we bury the old life to live the new life), and to receive the Holy Spirit.
# Personal Trainer
- Often people will get a life coach, gym instructor or some other advisor.
- God gives to everyone in His Kingdom a personal Instructor who is with and in each of His children 24/7 to prepare us for life with Him. It is the Holy Spirit, our Teacher, Guide and Comforter.
There truly is little in the Bible that we are not familiar with.
