After reading and reading again these scriptures,I often wonder if we make coming to Jesus to complicated.As you can see here with this sinner and Jesus it was not difficult at all. He wasn’t rushed out to be baptized or rushed to the front of the church to testify and repent. These scriptures surely contain so much,but this is my focus. For Jesus made it so easy to get saved and we tend to push others with our own ideals of what must be done before you’re saved. Lord help us please to concentrate on you,as we live and move around here on earth,help us do your will,your way.Please help us not to think more highly of ourselves,than we do others.We’re here to serve and not to judge and push others into what we think ought to be.Help us Lord to look at your word and learn from you.Amen
That is what salvation is all about “Love” and doing things God’s way,and let’s not forget being real hurts-but it’s best others are so tired of “fake Christians”,let’s keep it real and simple like Jesus did with this sinner.Amen
What is wrong with you ? And why do you think so little of yourself ? When,What God has done for you through Christ Jesus gives you Great Value ! You don’t realize the Magnitude of all Christ Jesus did for you when He fully obeyed God? If you did you’d never ever worry about your Salvation. He gave us credit just as if we’d obeyed all of His requirements (Justification) In Christ we are perfect in God’s sight (Holy) because of the Blood .All that Jesus went through in Gethsemane was for us, being beaten all night long, thorns being pushed deep into His head,being beaten beyond recognition,dying and coming out the grave was all for us. He could have said Father no more,no more for those sinners but Love drove Him on to do what had to be done to please God for us! Jesus loves us very much and has made us acceptable in God’s sight forever. Jesus has taken care of every sin past,present and future! What a Mighty Awesome God we have! Recognize your worth and walk in Freedom! Remember Peter denied Jesus when He needed him the most, but Jesus never denied him or stop loving him in fact he wanted Peter to know that ( Mark 16:7 In essence He said be sure to tell Peter I’m alive”) And He wants us to know without a doubt we are forever safe in Him.
1 Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us
3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. 4 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.
There are still so many people that think this way;
I’ll come to Jesus after I get myself right. But what they fail to realize is
that there is no way to get right without Jesus Christ. No matter what you try
you cannot get clean enough on your own to please God. The void in your life is
there on purpose,it’s where Jesus is suppose to be. Jesus Christ,God’s great
gift to us is God’s way of getting us right.And we must first believe in God,and
the finished work that Jesus Christ has done. For by the power of the eternal
Spirit,Christ offered himself to God as a perfect sacrifice for our sins.
Hebrews 9:14 (b)
I no longer count on my own goodness or my ability to
obey God’s law, But I trust Christ to save me. For God’s way of making us right
“with himself depends on faith. Philippians 3:9
For if you confess with
your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from
the dead,you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are
made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.
Simply by faith you are made right in God’s sight
Love in Christ Pa
