If God is good and just,
what does He do with us?
Christians throughout the history of mankind have answered that question the very same way, with their lives. Their lives! Why?
Nothing can separate us from the love that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Why? Because He first loved us while we were yet sinners, dead in our trespasses and sin, and gave Himself for us in loving kindness as payment of a debt we could never hope to pay, that we might be with Him in Heaven for all eternity.
Why do we love Jesus? Because He first loved us when He shouldn't have, and then died for us, before we ever knew His name.
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 began considering all the evidence, God's Holy Spirit quietly began drawing us to Christ, and we were compelled to follow Him.
We certainly did not set out predisposed to believe in Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, we found ourselves agreeing with this statement:
Faith is forced consent!
That is to say, when evidence is judged by the mind and heart to be sufficient, the state of mind that we call "faith" is the inevitable effect. Whenever reasons are judged sufficient, faith, trust is induced.
John Murray, Collected Writings II
For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
the love of god to save...
There's a cost for following christ
There is a cost for following Jesus Christ. Sometimes the cost is everything you have, but it's worth it. It is!
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 and unambiguously, there's an eternal cost for refusing God's love. Rejecting the love of God, is one of the greatest sins in all the world, because of the enormous cost involved to be able to offer His saving love. God's Son on a cross, that's a high price!
The choice is yours. Be smart! Ask God now to show you if this is true. Don't wait, you can't count on tomorrow, ask God now to show you if this is really true! He will, if you're sincere.
the most important decision in life
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.
Jesus was here for 33 years and said a lot of things, here's one that should concern you... that there's no middle ground. You're either with Him or against Him.
Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me, scatters.
