Ever feel alone in the dark? Wonder about spiders, ghosts, spirits and demons? In the midst of all our fears and doubts, God says “Do not neglect to extend hospitality to strangers”. How’s that going?
Is what Jesus consistently taught us – the most indicative of your beliefs? Or have you drifted away from those? Spiritual drift can lead to serving two masters. And Jesus said – that ain’t happenin’. No one can…. You cannot. So now what?
Eternal life blessed by God forever — begins the moment you bow your knee in repentance and give Him all of your heart. You saved?
Living and leaving God behind? That is easy. Try something a little more challenging: Live to please God Almighty – in everything you do! Now that is a worthy challenge. And the prize at the end is more than adequate for your focus.
There comes a time to stand for Jesus, or deny Jesus. Are you sold-out to Jesus? Jesus made so very clear which sides of issues are His Ways. To not follow His Ways, is equal to not following Him. Ready to meet your Maker, Jesus the Messiah?
Being faithful to Jesus – that is what we want, right? Being faithful – when the Rapture happens? (I really want to go on that ride!) I live for Jesus, and that is why I live with confidence. How ’bout you? Accepting Jesus- plus some other is totally rejected by Jesus. That “other gospel” faith is the road that leads to the other place, not to God’s Home Heaven.
Do you acknowledge the dissidence between your “want-a-be” and your whatch-ya-be? The truth is you can’t have it both ways. Salvation in Christ is what it is. God has shared His Way with us. It is not “whatever you make it to be”. Salvation is not something you make up for your own convenience. Are you saved by God? Or are you hoping your own way will be good enough?
Over the course of hundreds of years, the Bible was put together by God — so that we could come to believe that Jesus is God Himself come down to earth to redeem a people to Himself, the Messiah, Son of God. God put the Bible together by inspiring writers with His message. Have you read it for what it is – God’s word to mankind? It is important to not read-into-it, not remove what makes us uncomfortable, not reject portions of the Bible where it says what we do not want to hear!
