Living to spread the name of Jesus Christ!
“Until Jesus Christ is the obsession of your heart, you’ll always be looking to mere men to meet needs that only He can fill. Only when you make Jesus Christ your first love, will you be ready for a love story that reflects His glory.”
The world is feeding the lost sheep lies!!! God does exist, and He loves you so immensely. You can relate to Him because He came down from heaven and was made man! Jesus walked this Earth, suffered in very similar ways we suffer today. He knows pain. He knows what it is to be homeless. He knows what it feels like to be ridiculed. He knows what it’s like to have your trust betrayed. He knows what it’s like to be whipped and beaten. He knows what it’s like to have expectations so much more - though God could do all those things and more. He knows what it’s like to ask in prayer for “this cup to pass”, but how it can be terrifying to walk into God’s will. God knows what it’s like to give up and sacrifice His son. To lose His one and only son - FOR US! God is not distant. He is right here with us. God desires your hearts to be after His! It breaks my heart that there are people who live, searching for the meaning of life, when the answer is so simple. It’s not just about following rules and regulations. It’s about being TRANSFORMED by the grace shown to us. We are sinners, who deserve death, because sin = death. BUT! The atoning sacrifice of Jesus allows us instead to be transformed and made new creations. Cleansed. The Creator of the universe is waiting for His children to return! We need to SPEAK UP! Let the world know that there is another way to live, than being lost and finding pleasure in temporary happiness!
We know so many people in our lives that are almost unknowingly, walking right into the pits of hell. To be tortured for eternity, instead of being forgiven eternally! I don’t want to live another day knowing this, and not spreading the good news! Moreso knowing that hell is real and not informing people. God really made me see His point of view: His children are lost and it breaks His heart to see them mindlessly heading to death. It really weighs so heavy on my heart. Oh Lord, give me direction to go and eyes to always see. Cleanse me, that I can go back into the wreckage and help others see freedom in you!! The God of the universes ever existed, loves you so deeply and is moved simply by His love for you. Please know this!
It’s like that feeling again… of stepping out alone. Like when I ‘left’ the Catholic church, where all my family/family friends were. I stepped out alone. Into what God had planned for me; He met me where I was and I found myself experiencing the most intense moments of realization ever. And now I’m here. Facing a cross-road. I am scared to the core of stepping out again. A year ago, I was to make quite a big decision. And now, here I am twiddling my thumbs over this… this seems like such a big “risk” to take. A decision to change the whole course of my life. 19 years old, and already feeling like a life-crises is dawning. A change is coming. Potentially. Please pray for me, guys!
