The Christian race is compared to a race in the Bible. I’m so thankful we don’t actually have to run a race… am I the only one? We’re instructed to overcome and stay true to God’s way and walk on His path throughout our lives. Is it easy? Not always. Is it worth it? Yes… yes it sure is! I’ve heard that stop, drop and roll doesn’t work in hell.
Even if we didn’t have the promise of eternal life in Heaven, just knowing that God’s love and His protection in my life is worth it. Because of the sacrifice Christ made on the cross, those who were about to be spewed from God’s mouth are now invited to sit with Him on His throne.
If Christ is yours today, make sure to give Him praise for it!The gospel of Jesus Christ is not complicated – but He knows that we as individuals… our thoughts and actions and wills… they’re quite complicated. God gave us free will because He didn’t want to be worshiped by robots – programmed to worship Him. He wants us to have a desire to relate with Him. That’s why prayer is such a precious gift – it’s our way of communicating with God through Christ. And, yes, it is a two-way conversation. We talk and we listen.
Because Christ was raised from the dead by God, people, though flawed, weak, stumbling and bumbling – are welcome to have a personal relationship with Him. Will you choose to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ today? I hope so. When you ask Christ into your heart and life, with Lucinda, you can say, “You Are Mine” – praise God.
I like it! I really do. 🙂
