Living like Him

1 John 2:6-“Whoever claims to live in Him, must live as Jesus did.”

How did Jesus live? He lived hated, he lived mocked, He lived with the whole world against Him. He lived alone when the chips were down (in the garden) He lived betrayed and denied by one’s He thought loved Him, He lived abused, BUT He lived loyal to the Father’s Will, because of the strong bond of love they had, and brought Him glory!!! He lived having completed the mission He was sent here for.

The Tree of Life

The Tree of Life is everlasting Life. We, as Christ followers, will never fully cross from death into life until we physically die; but until then we will have to deal with good/evil (imperfections/limitations) in the world, ourselves, and others. The first Adam/Eve ate of that tree which translates into our struggles today, while we are in this mortal body.  We must wait, trusting God, taking Him at His Word, that mortality will be swallowed up by immortality, when we will, one day, live in the presence of God forever, in the Light and Life of His goodness, without worry, fear, or struggle. But, for now, while still in our mortal bodies, we struggle through in hope of that new day dawning when our joy will be complete!!!

Wants, Needs, and Sonship

If God is wanting to change destructive behaviors in us, giving us what we want (which we think we need) is not good for us or will not provide a motivation for change, but will enable us to continue in those same behaviors, BUT if He holds back in giving us what we want, it provides the necessary pain and suffering of discipline needed to lead us to repentance and the empowerment for change that He’ll provide, if  our hearts are sincere. This discipline also distinguishes us as a beloved son, greatly valued by our Father. God can never be accused of being permissive, enabling, apathetic, distant, or weak when it comes to our care and growth. He will give us what we need, and not what we want. He is conforming us into the image of His first-born Son.

Many Paths to God! (?)

There are indeed many paths to God, in the sense that we are unique individuals and our callings, and the good works He has fashioned us for, as saints, create a different “looking” path from each other, but none of these lead to God that are outside of Christ, His Son! The truth is and will always remain (as truth established by God doesn’t ever change)  that there is ONE way to the Father, and that is through believing in, receiving, and following Christ. He alone bridges the gap that our sins created to the One and Only God! So, when you hear the expression “many paths to God” acknowledge the differences of our walks, to those who’ve trusted Christ, but don’t be deceived into believing  that other religions are on that path, because the path is none other than Christ Himself!!!!! The spirit of this world would have you think different, but the saints of God know, hold onto, and proclaim the Truth.
Tell me again, Lord, for I love to hear your Word!
“I am THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life. NO man comes to the Father, but by Me.”-John 14:6.

Contradiction in Terms

To call yourself a “Christian” or one who belongs to Christ, and have a lifestyle of sin, is a mockery to God.

A Time to Be Quiet

You’ve thought that I stopped speaking the Word of God, and have, somehow by that, “seen the light”   and started acting like a normal person. While it’s true I’m not sharing the Word with you anymore, but it is because you’ve scoffed at it for so many years when I did, and my Lord tells me not to cast my pearls before swine.
I’m looking for a person of peace, (Luke10:5)  whose heart to receive is open and loves God, and the Words He speaks, that he might be trained by them; one who wants to walk in righteousness and be changed by truth; one who embraces the Light in the darkness, and who craves to know the heart and mind of God, so that we can share together, and immerse ourselves with the hope and encouragement He brings.
And so, I walk away with deep sorrow, as you’ve chosen your own way, and your own fate. The way back is through heartfelt repentance. I hope you take it, my loved one.

The Author and Finisher

There is more to salvation than just “having faith.” We must have faith in the One we say we believe in, trusting Him to bring it to completion, for only He can do it.
