What would you trade for jesus?
Christians have been asked this question since Jesus was here, what would you trade for your relationship with God?
Christians throughout the history of mankind have answered that question the very same way, with their lives. Nothing can separate us from the love that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Nothing! Because He first loved us while we were yet dead in sin, and gave Himself for us in loving kindness. Why do we love Jesus? Because of who He is, and what we are. He loves us so much more, and shows it every day. His love is new every day!
If God is good and just,
what does He do with us?
Faith is forced consent
Not a leap in the dark!
We may have begun our journey fairly convinced Jesus was a "good man," but as we considered all the evidence we were forced in a different direction.
We certainly did not set out predisposed to believe. Nevertheless, we then find ourselves agreeing with this statement:
Faith is forced consent!
"That is to say, when evidence is judged by the mind to be sufficient, the state of mind we call 'faith' is the inevitable effect whenever reasons are judged sufficient, faith, trust or belief is induced."
John Murray, Collected Writings II
What is the Gospel?
The just and gracious God of the universe looked upon hopelessly lost sinful people and sent His Son, Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, to bear His wrath against sin on the cross and to show His power over sin in the resurrection so that all who turn to Him and trust in Him will be forgiven, and reconciled to God Forever!
There's a cost for following Christ. Sometimes the cost is everything you have, but it's worth it. The decision is yours. If God is working in your heart, follow the light home. If not, you need to pray earnestly that God will change your heart. You can make a lot of mistakes in life and get by, but this is one you do not want to make. Don't miss Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord! Please don't!
The Bible states clearly, unambiguously there is a cost for not asking God to forgive you of your sin, and for not following Christ. That cost is everything you have, with no hope in Hell forever.
tHE Most important decision in life
We want you to know that asking God to forgive you, to wash you clean of all your sin and save you does not mean a life of heaven on earth. That begins in Heaven. In fact, Jesus warned us that we will have trouble and tribulation, lots of it, because we have an enemy working to destroy our life and faith in God.
But, we have a friend, a Savior, God Most High, the Strong One, the All-Powerful Creator of Heaven and Earth that loves us and will be with us through it all, so that all things work together for good. Here's an example...
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
Don't be deceived and play the fool because your family and friends are. Please ask God to show you that He Is there.
He will, if you ask Him!
Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me, scatters. (Jesus)
