The Reluctant Walk to Jesus

So many people love talking about God but won’t talk about Jesus Christ (in Greek) aka Yehoshua- shortened to Yeshua- Hamashiach (in Hebrew). Jesus the Messiah is who saves us. The Bible says Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life and no one comes to the Father God but through Him. Why? Because Jesus Christ came down to die and on the third day be resurrected for our sins. It is He who covers us and all our sins with Himself so Father God sees us as holy to be redeemed to Heaven with Him. We need to believe and have a relationship wiyh Jesus Christ to be saved. People are reluctant because you first have to humbly admit you need a Savior and the enemy we all have does not want you to drop our pride so puffs it up and distracts us and tempts us to temporary pleasing things. But the way to Jesus is the right way and comes with eternal rewards as well as peace and joy and grace and mercy now. πŸ˜ƒβ€οΈ

Stay Close to God

So many are not going to church anymore. It is no longer for any reason except the fact that God and obeying Him is not their highest priority anymore. We can change that and turn it around by giving God His proper number one place in our lives. We do this by staying close to Him- praying, reading our Bible, worshipping, going to church, helping other people, serving, tithing. All of these practices are Biblically mandated and good for our soul, relationship with God and good health now and into eternity.πŸ˜ƒβ€οΈ

Hard Beginnings and Good Endings

I think this is so many people’s story. This is all Christian’s story because life on this planet is riddled with people against God and troubles like mine has been but when we humbly accept salvation from Jesus Christ and begin a relationship, eternal life with Him begins then. While on this earth, we will still have trouble but we have hope and eternal life will continue when God one day pretty soon remakes everything without the sin and evil.

So even if things have been pretty yucky in life, that never has to be anyone’s eternal fate. There is hope in Jesus Christ and it is all laid put in the Bible for us. Praise God!πŸ˜ƒβ€οΈ

Our Good Isn’t Enough but God’s Good Is

I was just wondering if people who do this sin, like abortion, or this sin, like murder, or this sin, like pornography, without confessing before they die would still go to heaven? And the Holy Spirit spoke softly to my over-thinking/stinky thinking mind. I was convicted gently and reminded that I very well may be speaking some sarcastic, judgmental words when I am hit by a car and any sin unconfessed would land me in hell if real life went like my horrible, incorrect thinking.

And isn’t that the whole point of Jesus Christ having to come down from heaven to die brutally for us and defeat death for us forever by rising from the dead?

It is not our goodness or perfection that gets us to heaven in the eternal afterlife. It is not confessing every tiny sin before we pass. We reach heaven when we have a relationship with God in which we are covered by the payment Jesus Christ paid for us. And Jesus forgives us and speaks for when we have that relationship with Him.

This frees us from obsession and bondage to the pursuit of perfection. And it causes us to gratefully and rightly pursue that very important relationship with God through Jesus and with the Holy Spirit’s power and help. Focus on that truth and be loved. πŸ˜„β€
