Men are Saviors of Self and Others

Saviors on Mount Zion, pg 11; “In our preexistent state, in the day of the Great Council, we made a certain agreement with the Almighty. The Lord proposed a plan, conceived by him. We accepted it. Since the plan is intended for all men, we became parties to the salvation of every person under that plan. We agreed, right then and there, to be not only saviors for ourselves but measurably, saviors for the whole human family.” – Archibald F. Bennett

Romans 11:34; “For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?”

Years ago I was telling a good friend God needed me to do this and do that and I was so busy I didn’t have time to catch my breath.

My dear friend just smiled, looked at me and said; “Michelle God doesn’t need you or your help”.

At first I was offended, but I went home and prayed over the counsel of my friend whom I trusted deeply.  I studied incessantly to see if his words were from God and poured over my Bible for a month.  I came up with more scriptures than I could spiritually digest and discovered that my friend was indeed right! 

The bottom line is this: if God needed us then what kind of God are you worshipping? Would this god be able to handle your next problem on his own or would you be waiting on him to find just the right person to help him out? And what if they were too busy or they were waiting on this god to find the right person to help him for their problem?  It would never end!

Rather than needing us, God does desire to be in a covenant relationship with Him. He created us to fellowship with and gives guidance for this sinful world. 1 Cor. 1:9; John 17:24.  God is looking for people who will worship and glorify Him.

Those who aren’t born again cannot glorify God. We must worship Him in spirit and truth – John 4:24 and just as Jesus told Peter that it was the Spirit that revealed this to him (John 14:10) it’s because God did this, not us – John 14:16-17.

Romans 3:11 tells us that no one seeks after God – NOT ONE – John 6:70 and Jesus reaffirms this again later in John 15:16.

If a Mormon tells you they’re helping God ask them what Jesus meant when He said the sick are in need of a physician. 

Mark 2:17; “When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
