Commentary By: Gordon King
The truth of the matter is that Christians love you!
While you may not see it that way, it’s the truth. We tell you about sin, about morals and values because we care for your soul! We don’t want to see you end up spending eternity in hell. We don’t want to see you destroy your life and end up in a hopeless situation.
You are loved and cared about, and even though you don’t see it that way it’s the truth! There are numerous Christians praying for you and your well-being, even as I write this post. They are praying that the good Lord allows you to see what we see, to know what we know, that Jesus Christ is the answer, that He is the only way to heaven!
You may feel abandoned, alone, and afraid. You may be depressed and feeling hopeless. You may feel that you are at the end of your rope, or perhaps drowning in the mess you find yourself in. Perhaps you are in some other sort of situation and you just can’t seem to find your way out. There is hope, there is an answer to your problems! Believe me I know, I’ve been where you are now!
As a believer in Jesus Christ, we are not of this world, we are of another dimension, heaven. Our kingdom is not of this world, it is with our heavenly Father. You cannot know about this or even sense it if you are not a follower of Jesus Christ!
Christianity makes no sense to most people living in the world today. Most people view us as intolerant and haters, when nothing could be further from the truth! Sure, there have been people claiming to be Christians and hating others who sin, but I bet you that most of them were not really true Christians, and the ones who are were not walking with God but living in sin. Anyone can claim to be something, but it doesn’t make it true. Christians are people too, and sometimes we make mistakes, sometimes we even sin, what a surprise!
And anyone can believe that heaven and hell are not for real, but they remain real. Anyone can say that they will get to heaven, some way, some how, but the truth remains that the only way to heaven is through the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ!
Christianity is not a religion, but a personal relationship with the God who created the heavens and the universe! It is submitting to God Almighty, not out of fear, but out of love. We love God more than anything because He first loved us! He provides for us, protects us, cleanses us, and loves us more than anything or anyone ever could.
Think about it for a moment, if God is not for real, then why did Jesus Christ allow Himself to be put to death on the cross? I mean, He had plenty of opportunity to run away. And not only that, but why did his disciples die for Christ? Why would they allow themselves to be put to death if Jesus Christ were not God? And if we are nothing more than ancestors of worms and slime, evolving into a higher state of being, then why is it that the world seems to be in a state of decay and disarray and not evolving into something better?!
If you don’t believe me about Jesus Christ then look it up. There is plenty of history written about Jesus, His life and His death, other than biblical history. I am talking about ancient historians who were alive during the time of Jesus and shortly after His death. In fact, there is more written about Jesus than any other person in history!
You may have wondered just what life is really all about, well I’ll tell you. The fact is that we are here now, alive on this planet we call earth to make a choice. A choice between heaven and hell, between accepting God, or rejecting Him. That’s it, no other reason at this point in time. Not that we are to just make a choice and then sit around doing nothing, of course not! As children of God we are to perform God’s will on earth as it is in heaven. We are servants of the God of the universe, how great is that?! And one day soon we will be in the presence of God, sitting in heaven, with new immortal bodies, in new and exciting places, places prepared for us by God!
Once you accept Christ as your Lord and Savior, then God will begin changing you! He will give you a new spirit, and begin a work in you that is more Christ like. He will help you with your problems here on earth, He will provide for you, and He will bless you! You will become a child of God! You will share in the inheritance of God, not for one time, but for eternity!
God loves you, Christians love you! Don’t turn a blind eye to the Lord, give Peace a chance! You don’t have to change first to be saved, just a change of heart!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
