Topic: Living Life
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. (Ephesians 6:10 KJV)
How many of us have giants in our lives? Giants can be anything that would try to block us to reaching the goals. We all have problems in our lives. There is no one who doesn’t have some kinds of life issues. Our life problems can be either big or small. Even Jesus faced the giant while He was living in this earth. Yet, He was able to conquer the problems in His life.
I understand that some people may think living a life is the ticket to the Heaven. Even though there is a truth to this; yet, it’s still further away from the truth. There is no guarantee that just living a life will have the ticket to Heaven. Just committed to the religious ritual and tradition don’t make us to have the key to Heaven. We need to establish our personal relationship with Jesus Christ, while we are living in this world, and to do His will. It’s very sad some people think that if they’d do many good deeds would make them to enter the kingdom of God.
I love what Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” This verse is talking about God’s relationship with us. Before we were born, God wanted us to be somebody that would represent Him. We all have called by God to be His representatives. I don’t care if you were born from the disability or not. Yet, we have choice who we want to serve—Satan or God. There is no third choice. If you’d think that Virgin Mother Mary can help you, think again. Even she received a favor from God, it didn’t mean that she became a mother of God eternally.
We can conquer our problems with the help from God. He is your and my shepherd (Psalms 23:1) who supplies all our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). We can count on Him if we’d do our parts.
God planned to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to us to pay our sins, so we can have free access to God and develop personal relationship with Him. Would you like to have personal relationship with God? If you’d like to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I’d like to encourage you to do two simple things. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” There is no sinner prayer formula. Instead, you just talk to God at where you are now. Secondly, I’d like to encourage you to find a good solid biblical teaching church and Christian friends. They can help you to build strong relationship with God.
