God’s love…

The verse that nearly everyone knows, John 3:16, begins with “For God so loved…”. He does love us because we are created in His image. God doesn’t love the sinful ways that we live and show our lack of care and love toward each other. Can we fix this? NO! Not on our own we can’t.

When you feel His touch in your heart that convicts you of the ways that you have hurt His heart by living apart from Him, please don’t turn away. Don’t refuse to listen to that “small voice” that speaks to your soul. It is God telling you that you need to turn your life over to Jesus and allow Him to change your life.

God sent Jesus to live and teach and heal those who came to Him but He also came to die for our sins. He did that and then rose from the grave three days later as He conquered death for us. He made it possible for us to have eternal life with Him one day. Something that we can’t do on our own. We can’t be good enough to not commit sins during our time here. Satan always has the upper hand and can tempt us to do or think about things that we might not do on our own. The problem with our pride is that we think we can master our own selves.

Self-control is something that most of humanity has trouble with every day and has had to deal with this trouble for thousands of years. God knew this long before we were born and He provided a way for us to be reconciled to Him through Jesus Christ. Jesus is the only way to be admitted into God’s Presence. Believing in Him for your salvation and giving your heart to Him is the beginning of your eternity but that isn’t all. You need to study God’s Word and learn His will for your life and how you can possibly please God for the rest of your time here.

Becoming a Christian by your belief in Jesus as your Savior is the first step but it is only the first step on your journey to Heaven. Our life here is pitifully short compared to even one thousand years. Thinking of eternity is something our minds cannot conceive of. I pray that anyone who might read this will seek Jesus as their Savior…soon. Because one day the church will be taken up to be with Him and life on Earth will become more like hell on Earth than it has ever been. Make sure of your eternity before that happens.
