Remember

I’ve noticed a lot of beautiful post on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram about Jesus and God and that’s all good but it’s not enough .We need a Relationship with Jesus, it is He that secures our souls forever. For remember God’s word  still stands true today.

John 3:1

Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.”

Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.

John 7:21

 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!

The same goes for us God has made a way for us and that only way is still through Jesus Christ and Him alone .

John 6:47 I assure you ,anyone who believes in me has eternal life.

You Must Be Born Again!

Love in Christ

 

Don’t Forget God

1 Beside the rivers of Babylon, we sat and wept
as we thought of Jerusalem.t2 We put away our harps,
hanging them on the branches of poplar trees.3 For our captors demanded a song from us.
Our tormentors insisted on a joyful hymn:
“Sing us one of those songs of Jerusalem!”4 But how can we sing the songs of the LORD
while in a pagan land?5 If I forget you, O Jerusalem,
let my right hand forget how to play the harp.6 May my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth
if I fail to remember you. (NLT)

“O Jerusalem,O Jerusalem”!  While at home,Jerusalem represents home. Yes while at home we’re so busy sending text messages and emails until we barely speak to each other. Then there’s the time we must spend on Facebook and Google Plus,we’re just so busy. Then of course there is our smart phones,oh mercy if you don’t have one,you just feel out of the loop. Oh let’s not forget Twitter,I mean if you’re not Tweeting you’re really out of sync with today’s way of doing things. It’s really so easy to forget what’s important,when you’re so busy doing so much. At first we just start missing our time in the word,then we look up and we’re missing more and more time in Church. We hardly have any time for Bible study,we’re so busy doing things our way. I mean it gets to the point where we’ve really pushed God out of our lives,it happens slowly,so we barely even notice we’ve slipped away from a wonderful closeness to God. God  is so good and He allows us to enjoy much,but when you look around like the children of Israel  and see how far you’ve fallen,what then? The children of Israel were lamenting over the good they enjoyed at home,now that there sinfulness had caught up with them. We cannot forget God and think that there will be no consequences or repercussions,because sin carries its own punishment . Here they find themselves sitting by the rivers weeping,being tormented by their captors! It has to be hard,being dragged off to a foreign country leaving your comfort zone behind. Their captors demanded a song,the good old songs you sang at home. But there was no singing going on now,but even in a hard and difficult place,we can sing. Especially when we remember to whom we belong,repent and turn back to God. Let’s  listen and pay attention so that we recognize God’s voice,before we get into Babylon.

Love in Christ Pat
