It is sad when family and friends distance themselves away from you when sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Closing their ears to the good news is not closing their ears to us but to Christ the Lord. If Jesus isn’t in our lives and His message offends us or we don’t want to see it than this same attitude will be with us in judgement. Just because the gospel we preach isn’t the same as the one they have been taught, they deny God’s messenger and His teachings. Paul taught that many would follow another gospel. People that call themselves godly men will come about teaching a gospel that is not laid out by Christ. The gospel is not the kingdom of heaven. The gospel is not temples or families. The gospel does not come from other books outside the Bible. The gospel is that Jesus came into the world to die for our sins on the cross. Because He suffered and bled we can be redeemed because of His mercy. Those that accept Him in their lives have forgiveness of sins. Since the Lord was resurrected we will be resurrected with Him to live with Him in heaven. I pray for family and friends that haven’t accepted the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Those that are content with their lives and haven’t given their hearts to Jesus. God is waiting for them to give their lives to Him before this life is done.
After death comes judgement and we will be judged for what we knew and denied. Will the Lord accept you in heaven or deny you? Are you all in for Jesus or halfway? We are accepted by Jesus if we give Him our whole hearts and are willing to give up our old life. Lay down false teachings and gospels that only result in death. Come to Christ and He will give you life eternal in heaven. I pray that hearts are open to God’s message. That people are no longer closed off to the Lord but have a heart to listen to Him. Though many people will call me out for sharing His message I will go forth because I love You Jesus. There is no greater love people can discover than Your love. Help me declare it with boldness and love to the world. Let each word that I share with them be a seed that grows. I hope that many more people give their lives to You. I pray that many more people will have a heart to share Your message. I pray for a revival in the hearts of all those that hear Your message of hope. Bring down the Holy Spirit to witness in their hearts the truthfulness of Your gospel. How grateful I am for Your mercy and grace. Thank You for the cross. Thank You for suffering that I might have forgiveness of sins. You have brought me out of darkness and into Your glorious light. I love You.
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJV)
1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
2 Corinthians 11:4 (KJV)
4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
