What Crown will We Receive?

There will be a day when we will be at Jesus feet.  Some will see Him at the Great White throne judgment, and those of us who follow Him will see Him at the Bema seat.  Those who decide to not follow Him will be judged by what they did in their life to determine where they will go.  The Great White Throne is where He will judge the nations on whether they are worthy to enter into heaven.  Unfortunately, none of us are good enough to enter heaven on our own merit.

Be Reconciled to God

shadow-986955_1280

Jesus Christ, our Redeemer, died for our sins so that we could be reconciled to Him.  As we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, having The evidence that we are in Christ is that we walk in the Spirit, leaving our sins behind, loving God and loving others.  Our old self has been crucified on the cross with Christ.  We need to leave the life we lived behind, for we have become a new creation.  Our character, our desires our lives have been changed.  If not, you need to be reconciled to God.  Confess your sins, repent and turn away from your sinful nature and toward Christ.  He will help you through anything.  You will struggle, but with God, all things are possible.  Put your faith in Him and enjoy the newness in life, life more abundantly, assurance of eternal life through the blood of Jesus.  As believers, we all have a ministry.  A ministry to be a light to this world, to share God’s word, and to help those in need.

2 Corinthians 5:14-21

“For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

Thank God for reconciling us to Him.  For bringing us into the family of God.

Let Us Unveil the Gospel

As God has saved us and gave us new life, let us not hesitate to share what God has done for us.  As believers, God wants us to spread the good news to all those around us.  I often ask God for boldness for many times I encounter people I have a hard time on how to start a conversation about God.  I need to remember to pray at that moment for God to give me boldness and the words to say.  I need to have that heart to love someone enough to give that person every opportunity to know about Jesus and to have that grace God has given me .  One of the devil’s schemes is to introduce fear, doubt, complacency into a believer to keep them from sharing.  He has blinded many in this world from the truth and we need to unveil that truth and not hide the light.

2 Corinthians 4:1-6

Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake. For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
