When you act on Christ, you know you made the best choice in life
I am dirt, I am worth nothing, I have caused damage, I am disgusting, I am a product of bad decisions, I am the prodigal son, I am human. I am a sheep that wanders astray, I am like Jonah, a runaway. I am like Peter, a denier. I am like Judas, a deceiver. I am like Adam, a sinner. I am like Cain, a murderer. I am like all the sins of the world, all my righteous deeds are dirty rags. Who would take me? Who would want me? Who would love me? I deserve nothing. I am nothing but dust in the wind.
BUT GOD … LOVES ME MORE THAN YOU EVER COULD. HE FORGAVE MY SINS WHEN YOU DIDN’T, HE TOOK ME IN WHEN YOU TURNED YOUR BACK. HE STAYED WHEN YOU WALKED AWAY, HE SAID HE LOVED ME WHEN YOU SAID NOTHING … HE GAVE ME EVERYTHING I DON’T DESERVE. HOW HE LOVES ME! THATS HOW I AM TO LOVE BECAUSE HE LOVES ME, A DIRTY RAG. AND DESPITE ALL THINGS, THAT IS HOW I LOVE YOU BECAUSE OF MY ABBA.
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; 13 bearing with one another, andforgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. 14 Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond ofunity. 15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called inone body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
Sin is a bullet train, sometimes it just slam right into you with such force you are left struggling to get up. That is the kind of sin that keeps us down for the count, that sin is found all around this modern country with so many social, political and universal thinkers all trying to get their point across to change the way people are. Either in media, production, teaching, or late night talk shows, it seems like those who don’t have a solid direction are trying to make one instead of seeing that direction that has already been given to them.
Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.
Atheists. Islam extremists. Who else shoots and tries to dismantle the the truth and righteousness of the Creator who allows their life to continue? Why doesn’t God just destroy them? Because His ways are not our ways, His love is greater than our love and gives second chances where we give death sentences.
They create their own way, to suppress the truth. They are unrighteous taking part in sinful nature and bring encouragement for others to follow.
Romans 1:29-32 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.
Christians. A name given by others (non-believers) to those (believers) who followed Christ. They acted with love and righteousness. They resembled the the King Jesus because they walked with Him. The true followers of Christ don’t act as the non-believers do, they are filled with love, they share truth in kindness and wisdom, they don’t try to angrily disprove the thoughts of others.
The sin of the world keeps us down for the count if we don’t look up from our flesh and ways of life that we created for ourselves to notice the truth of the Spirit and the ways of life that have already been created for us. We have been given the gifts, its your choice to accept those gifts. All Praise and Glory be to the Lord God Almighty.
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
Thats a narrow door for an abundant afterlife, actually thats the only door and its the truth.
Atheists, a challenge: If theres is no heaven why waste your time on this earth? Why even take part in life and have loving relationships with other human beings if it ends with nothing? Why hold off the inevitable and set yourself up for disaster? Do you even think about what happened to your parents? Brothers or sisters? Family or friends? After they died? Is their memory just that, a memory? Why make a memorial that reads: In loving memory? Where did you learn to Love? Where did you learn to have a brain to have a memory?
You didn’t, it was given to you. Its for you to open your eyes to realize the Truth is all around you in the air you breath and the sky you gaze at.
