WHAT CAN WE DO?
Should we desire to make God happy? It is kind of contrasting to ask that question if you think about it. As sinful flesh and bone, we cannot do anything to please God apart from believing that He sent His Son to die for our sins. Oh I gave the answer away. So if we admit our sins, believe in Him, and confess Him as God, we make God happy. So, if you are a Christian, what do you do as a Christian? Obviously you find a Christ centered church, and grow as a Christian. God’s Word is clear in teaching that salvation is for all who believe that Jesus is the Christ. Consider John 6:28-29:
Then they asked him, "What must we do to do the works God requires?" Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent."
Jesus did not say, “Call me a prophet.” He did not say, “Go your own way and we will meet in the middle. He said, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent."
To believe in Jesus, you have to believe, step out in faith and know that you know that you know in your heart down to your soul, that the Holy Bible is God’s love letter to His people, you must know that Christ is God, that He was born of a virgin, led a sinless life, healed the sick, prayed and taught the lost, fed over five thousand with a little fish and bread, turned water into wine, cleaned His Father’s house, raised the dead, walked on water, told Satan off, hung on the cross as Peter called it a tree for you and me, defeated hell, death, and the grave, rose on the third day, and is coming soon to take us home to glory, PRAISE BE TO GOD!
Christians today are caught up in materialistic dogma that truly isn’t worth two cents. “Well, my church says,” or “To go to Heaven, you got to do….” There is only one church body of Christ. We are His people. Our salvation rests in Him only. What did Jesus say concerning salvation? I have verses that really speak to my heart.
“All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.”
God Almighty, Jesus, the Son said, “whoever comes to me I will never drive away.”
I cannot say anything about that other than oh what precious love He has for us to not only give up what He did, but to reassure us that we are forever His. The last verse is so strong, I’ll end on it.
John 10:28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.
