I’ve noticed that I’ve been getting a couple more readers than usual – wanted to say hi.
Then I also noticed, I haven’t written a bible post in a while. Now, while I’m not specifically a bible blogger; shoo I’m not specifically any type of blogger – I am a Christian.
To you newbies? I love The Lord. A lot. And I want to tell you He loves you too. You can unfollow me for it, you can call me crazier for it; but I love The Lord. Yes, I suffer from the crazy ; yes Him and I are trying to work things out and I know it’s gonna be a looooong process. But I don’t blame Him anymore.
Now what brings me to talk about this? Boston. I hafta say; I can’t wait to see The Lord. Not in a “I wanna die” way – but in a “I am so tired of the evil in this world” way.
I know, I know. How could The Lord allow this? Well, God gave us free will. If He didn’t, He wouldn’t be a loving, merciful God. He would be a dictator; but I’m not gonna debate a philosophical thingie now. Ya wanna talk? Email me.
I just want to say: God loves you and He wants you to accept Him as His Lord and savior. He is waiting with open arms; no matter what you have said, done, did, how you lived….whatever. He is standing there waiting for you, loving you like a wonderful, loving father loves his child. He just wants you to run to Him.
That hole, that emptiness that’s been in your life? He can fill it. He can fill it so well with so much love and peace and joy like no other. He so wants you to have that joy and peace.
Thing is this joy and peace comes from acknowledging something. First, that well, you’re a sinner. Romans 3:23 says that: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, (Romans 3:23 NKJV) We are sinners who are so unworthy of heaven. So unworthy of anything but death. Now don’t tell me you ain’t a sinner, cuz I know I am. And….
Second, because of our sin, we are headed for death; or hell: Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned— (Romans 5:12 NKJV)
But! there is a huge but in here: The best part though is that God loves us so much He gave us a way to be with Him: But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8 NKJV)
So Christ died for us, He died for someone so unloving as me…and you before we even knew about Him. How weird is that? No, how awesome is that? That’s how much God loves us.
But wait there’s more! here’s where it gets awesomer – He rose from the dead: Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. (Romans 8:34 NKJV)
Because Jesus Christ Rose from the dead we are offered eternal life: For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23 NKJV)
We are unworthy of heaven. I know I am so extremely unworthy of heaven. I cannot even tell you how much….ugh, doesn’t even matter. But after I acknowledged my sin and saw that the only way to heaven was through accepting Jesus Christ as my Lord and saviour, I know that I will get there. Everyday, I thank God for the Love He has shown me despite how undeserving I was for it.
that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:9, 10, 13 NKJV)
All you hafta do is accept Him into your heart. How? Well, acknowledge that you are a sinner and that there is no way you can get to heaven without Jesus. Accept that Jesus Christ is ruler of all and that there is none above Him. Ask Him into your life to stay.
I can’t tell you how to pray it specifically. Prayer is an intimate thing between each person and God. He knows your heart, don’t be afraid of stumbling over your words. Shoo, talk to Him like you would talk to anyone else – but silently. Unless you don’t care what people think of you – I do it constantly at home. My kids are so used to me talking to Jesus.
My beloved friends, now is the time to seek out The Lord. To come to the truth.
Soon or it will be too late.
