Live a life for Christ and your salvation will be made sure in heaven. Live a life contrary to God and you will be on the wide road to hell. When the Holy Spirit is in our lives we are able to control the flesh and walk in the holiness of God. Our thoughts are more on caring for others then ourselves. We care for those in need for the love of God is within us. His words carry forth in our lives. When the Holy Spirit is absent from the body we are led on our own path with blinders. Our life is filthy for we don’t make things right with God through repentance. When others are in need we’d rather get to our appointments than stop to help. The path to heaven is narrow and those that accept Jesus into their hearts are led straight way to Him. The path to hell is wide and most people take this route for it is easy. Those in the world may live care free for now but in the life to come there will be terror on their faces. In judgement, the righteous will be found worthy in the presence of God. For they accepted Jesus and His blood redeemed them from all their past mistakes. Jesus will declare to them “Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.” All sinners that didn’t accept Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross will be found guilty in judgment. There shame and guilt will be evident in their faces. Jesus will say to them, “Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.” Choose wisely, this day, how you will live, for nobody known when we die. Live for Christ and spend your life eternally in heaven. Live without Jesus and you will have eternal punishment as your reward. God will divide the sheep from the goats. What side are you on.
It is a great opportunity to live for Christ. It is my reward to have His Spirit in my life. I was given a second chance at life and I am blessed to follow my King. With Jesus in my heart I am led safely throughout this life. My desires are no more for the flesh but what I can do for one another. What can I do this day to help somebody in need? What can I do to help further the kingdom of God? What can I say to help bring souls to Christ? These are the questions that now surround my way of thinking. My focus is less on me and more on God and the love for others. God placed this love within my life. I was once into things that pleased the flesh but He changed my life and gave me new direction. His love changed me from the inside out. The day I turned from my sins and looked to Christ my old life was dead. He cleansed me from within and had mercy upon my soul. I was given new life in Jesus. I was born again. What is most important in life is to love the Lord and my neighbor as myself. Because I love Jesus, my heart also goes out towards others. I desire to find the lost and bring them to Christ. I desire to help those that are suffering and bring them into God’s rest. My heart breaks for the homeless. I can never be too busy to stop and care for them. Jesus loves them and the same loves shines through my life. Oh Lord, use me to do Your will on this earth. Work through my life to help those that afflicted. Help others see the importance of the cross. Help me find the lost and bring them into Your fold. My life is for You. I am amazed by Your beauty, all around me. My lives desires are to live with You, Jesus. Accept me into Your arms. I embrace You. Heaven is what I look to in life. For I will be with You, my Lord, forever. I love You.
Matthew 25:31-46 (KJV)
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
