“23 For the wages of sin is death, but thegift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
NIV Romans 6:23
I am a sinner just like you and in a perfect and pure presence of God Our Creator, there is no place for sin. Where the light rules, there is no place for darkness. To be able to get rid of our darkness and eternally dwell in light, we need help. Divine help. We can’t do it on our own. We can be good, we can be kind, we can be loving, still there is a nature to us that is not perfect and not pure. Despite that, God LOVES US! He is merciful. He is just. He is good. Accept God’s gift today: Salvation and Eternal Life through Christ Jesus.
In times when I didn’t know God, I went through hard times and trials and it was so difficult to bear it all. I was breaking under the weight of problems and constant worries, many nights I cried myself to sleep and didn’t have much hope for the next day, much less for the future. I felt left alone and desperate until I found Jesus. Everything turned around for the better from that point on. It didn’t happen over night, but as I learned to trust God and pray and seek His will for my life, it made an enormous difference. This is my humble call to all of you out there who are struggling in any way. Examine your ways. Examine your heart. Is there something missing? Seek God. Invite Him into your heart, give it all to Him. Return to Him. You will feel the change in your spirit and in your heart. It will be joyous, uplifting and GOOD! ♥
As a fairly new believer I am just amazed about the fact that our God is always there for us. Living without God and leaning on your own strength all the time is very hard. Going to the Source of all creation and love is essential to have a happy and purposeful life. All I want to say is just that I am so grateful that God has touched my heart and revealed His love and His grace to me. I am grateful for loving Christian people who have been (and still are) there for me and who have shown me with their actions Jesus’ love and compassion. I feel safe knowing that my God is there for me every second of my life. I run to Him every day, I thank Him, I praise His name. I am covered by His unfailing love.
14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. 17 The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”
Yes, he laid down His life for us! Yes, He knew that it will be so, but He did it because He loves us and because the Father commanded it! He rose again to sit at the right hand of the Father. Yes, He takes care of His sheep! Listen to His voice. Seek His Love and Grace. Apart from Him you can never be truly complete. That missing “thing” you’ve been searching for and can’t seem to find it, is His presence in your life.
“6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
How limitless and how amazing is God’s Love?! Solely by His Grace we have been saved. It is the ultimate Gift to the humanity. And it is meant for everyone, every person that walks this Earth. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. No amount of our own good works will erase our sins and bring us to Heaven. None. Through Christ Jesus only, we are saved and made worthy of everlasting life. Believe in Jesus Christ. Start your journey with Him today!♥
“As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.”
Once we are truly born in Christ Jesus, our life starts a new. We are a new creation. We think differently, we see people differently, we speak differently. We grow as individuals. We leave our old ways behind. Those who are not at that point yet, often don’t understand this kind of change. It is not an obligation, it’s not a nuisance, it is a desire and a want that the Spirit of Truth instills in our being. Without Jesus in our life, we are weak, we are easily to walk into a trap of the ruler of this world. This verse says is loud and clear.Let Jesus in your heart today!
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit,while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.”
I will remain in Christ Jesus. I will not be shaken. I will not conform to the world. The world is full of deception. I am a branch of Jesus. I will stand in His Word. His Love will cover me. His Truth will guide me. His Grace will save me. I WILL REMAIN IN HIM.
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
When we believe and start following Christ, there is a powerful transformation happening in our hearts and our minds. We are no longer ourselves, but we are newly created in Him. We are truly born again! This change is powerful, it is divine and it’s hard to put into words. There is a thirst to pursue God’s ways in all our actions, our words and our relationships. By ourselves we’re just a bud, in Him we develop into a beautiful, fragrant flower. It is all HIS GRACE! Those who truly believe will understand. For those who are not there yet, I can only say: Come to follow Jesus to experience life in a whole new light! Peace and Love.
