In life we have two choices. Follow Jesus and be saved in heaven or follow after the things of the flesh that leads to death and destruction. There are different fruits in the lives of these people. Those in Christ, love Him and one another. Those in the world, love the things of this world and what it offers. 2To love the Lord is to poor our hearts out to Him during confession of our sins. Our lives are given over to Him that He may wash our sins away. His Spirit lives within us and we are ready to share His goodness with others. To love other things more than God is when sorrow and pain can take wind in people’s lives. When Jesus isn’t at the head, our anger can get out of control. We may say things that bring much sadness in the lives of others. Our addictions make us look at people differently than the way they should be treated. If you are living in sin than their is darkness in your lives. You may fight against it but you will never win the battle if Jesus doesn’t take you out of it. It is our willingness to escape a life of sin and walk with Him that makes us clean. Jesus is our guide. There is only light therein. Come unto Him and all your anger will be put to rest. Love will replace the bitterness in your hearts. Jesus made a way home if we trust in Him. Take rest in His holiness. Live in His righteousness. By so doing, His love will take you by storm. It will spread from you to many others. God’s love is for all and He uses us to share it.
1It is amazing that God has given us a pathway to heaven. It may be narrow but the fruits of walking on God’s path is life eternal. This is a wonderful blessing for all those people living a life for Him. To have God forgive us our sins, though we are wicked, amazes me. He could have given up on us a long time ago but He sticks with us, through it all. Even when we are off the path, He listens to the prayers of others. I know that God answers prayers and helps us convict us of our errors. He knows how important we are in His plan and just hopes we can see Him for who He really is. All of you that desire a better life, it is with the Lord. He will grant you everything you need to be happy. Jesus already paid the price for your sins on the cross and is waiting for you to turn from your evil ways to Him. 2Confess openly your sins and plead for forgiveness. Let everyone that you’ve hurt know the truth. No longer cover your sins but give it all to God. Those that conceal their wickedness and do not repent will be judged harshly. Their reward is everlasting destruction. Those that give their lives to Jesus are washed clean through His blood and are forever in paradise with the Lord.
Let us pray:
Thank You God for showing me what love really means. I know that there is hope because You love me. I was lost but You found me. You beckoned me home and after such a long time I finally listened. My anger was to put to rest and You gave me strength. You’ve made me whole. I love You. Amen.
