The world as we know it right now is out of control, people have no limits in the way they speak to others, how they solve emotional problems and where they put their hope. A lot of people put hope in their money, now I understand that we must have this in order to live we have to get income for our needs and things we desire.
But what you do if you lost everything today? Have you ever thought about it? People live through tremendous storms in life and they lose everything through weather, divorce, loss of job. But… what’s the difference if it was your last day on earth and you leave everything behind, but for what? What’s ahead for you after here?
Many people would say, I’m a good person and I will get into Heaven and see Jesus, this is what Jesus says:
Matthew 7:13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
How does that affect you? You may or may not attend church, you say you believe in God but sit in judgement of others, you don’t forgive someone when they wrong you, you talk badly about others and you help yourself to things that aren’t yours. The list can go on but truly when you have a relationship with Jesus these things aren’t part of your life anymore, in fact the thought of it makes you sick, like a sin-ful of disease. Jesus then tells us:
Matthew 7:14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
My friends what you live for now, is temporary, here today, gone tomorrow and what is left? If you don’t build a relationship with Jesus, what will you have after this life? I can tell you just what Jesus says right here:
John 3:3 “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”
God’s Hope: Stop trying to fit God into your life somewhere, maybe on Sunday’s or whenever you get around to thinking about it-He’s your Heavenly Father, who loves you and desires a relationship with you right now, nothing or no one on earth can save you after you are gone only Jesus who is always knocking at the door of your heart for a relationship with Him- shedding His Blood for the redemption of your sins. Who would do this for you?
TO HIM BE THE GLORY FOREVER!
