Jesus, there is nothing superficial about You! You are direct and passionate about everything of importance. You are so passionate about us, that You took on our nature, came to live on earth as one of us, to enable us to understand Your message of love. You showed us the Father, so we can grasp something of His character and His desire for us to become reunited with Him (as He originally created us).
We were tainted by the deceits of satan from the beginning. But You, Jesus, would not allow us to remain with darkness in our souls. You gave us a way out; You alone are the door to the cleansing light of love and forgiveness. When we accept Your gift and invite You to be ‘Lord of our life’, we are reborn. When You enter, our basic nature, right down to the 'DNA' changes, and we become true children of God. We can go right into His presence, His throne room, just like little kids go sit on Daddy’s lap. He welcomes us!
Jesus, Your overwhelming love fills us. We are in the end times Jesus, and we realize You want everyone to come to know You; You have made it possible for us to be cleansed which allows us to spend eternity with You in heaven. Those who refuse to accept You as Lord cannot enter into heaven; if there is any taint of satan in them, they would burn up if they got close to the power of God ~ just like paper getting too close to fire. But Jesus, You want us all to be with You for all eternity. That’s why even though You were innocent, You suffered a cruel and violent death on the cross. Your innocent death paid our sin debt, cleansing our sin nature from us ~ if we recognize and accept this gift.
Jesus is so good! Once we accept Him as Lord, He sends Holy Spirit to indwell us. Holy Spirit guides us into a life seeking holiness. If we do make mistakes (sin), and we will, He will expose our sin to us. Then we repent, are forgiven, and re-cleansed. God even forgets we ever sinned. He knows our heart and all its secrets.
As we grow in our knowledge and love of God, life becomes ever brighter. With Holy Spirit indwelling us, we have the ability to defeat the enemy and recognize His deceits. Holy Spirit keeps us on the road to God’s heart. (See Cast Up A Highway)
If you have not yet invited Jesus to enter into your heart and be the true Lord of your life, I encourage You to do it now. If you’re tired of the negative, the darkness, the violence our country is falling into, see it with the eyes of Jesus inside you. Find the peace and joy and light of your Savior. Just admit you are a sinner and are truly sorry for your sins, that you need Jesus to come into your heart and cleanse you. Jesus loves you so much! He will come into any repentant sinner’s heart, purify it, and lead them to lives of righteousness = rightness in God’s eyes. Don’t wait! We never know when we will be face to face with God.
