As Christians, we often lose sight of what it means to be a “Christian“….or to be a “CHRIST” -ian. In order to keep refining ourselves to what God has required of us to be, to enter His Eternal Kingdom, God sent down His Son, to not only save Mankind from the shackles of evil; but also to show us, what God expects of us in our lives on earth. As human beings, we have this most precious example to look to, of our lives. I like to say that Jesus Christ did not come to the earth to establish a religion; but to establish a way of life for all of Mankind, in accordance to God’s Divine Laws of Love. We all have a calling from God; not just the few. God had determined this, since the time we were conceived in our mother’s wombs. And until we fulfill those callings, God will expect for us to seek these callings from Him; and to follow through with them, while we are on this earth.
The life and teachings of Jesus Christ, had revealed to us so many things. It is so important that we take the time to study both of them, and apply them to our lives. Jesus showed us that God should always be the first and last thought in our minds, with each day we live. So that we can remain focused on His Existence and Love, in our earthly lives. This is how God and His Ways of Love get more engrained and rooted within our hearts. And even in our moments of weakness, we will understand how merciful the Father of Creation is, as long as we keep Him as a focus in our lives to the point that we hold ourselves accountable for our actions, and repent to God for the wrongs we commit. Because in the end, this is what will determine our entrance into God’s Eternal Kingdom; or not. God knows since the time Mankind committed its first sin, in the Garden of Eden, that we were very vulnerable to committing them over and over again. However, out of His Love for us, God’s Forgiveness and Grace are endless. He gives us till the last breath in our human bodies to try to repent and make things right with Him. However, once that last breath is taken, our time to make things right with Him, is up.
Jesus showed us that God can provide hope, despite the earthly circumstances in our lives. That God is beyond the ways of this earth; and that we should not value the ways of this earth, if we want to enter the Eternal Kingdom of the Almighty Father. We honor His Ways with all that we are, and know. Jesus showed us to defend God’s Laws of Divine Love, to the point of death of the earthly body. Jesus showed us that the earthly body is just a vessel; not the eternal soul that enters the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus showed us that upholding God’s Will and Purpose of our lives is what trumps ALL things of this earth. This is the most powerful weapon we have, to combat evil.
God judges on the intentions of the heart and souls of a person. Not solely by our actions. What separates those who enter the Kingdom, and those who don’t? The love for God one has in their hearts. The type of love that loves beyond the human body and mind. A love that has the strength to illuminate any path that it encounters. Such love, Jesus Christ showed us, comes through a unshaken faith in the Father of Creation. Jesus Christ showed us, through His Own Death and torture, that those rooted in God’s Love, endured such earthly suffering, and isolation….because they set their own earthly ways aside, and took on God’s Calling of them. To many, such warriors of God’s Divine Love, may appear as all alone, and poor. But these are the people who realized that God is beyond the ways of this world; and that His Ways are not of this world. These people have realized that the ways of this earth have pricetags that are determined on this earth; while God’s Ways are priceless, and could never be mimicked or bought.
Jesus showed us through His Life, that once a Child of God, has sought out their life purpose, that God’s Call of them, will become the center focus of their life and heart. When God is first and foremost, we realize the Truth behind the Power of His Love, and will not fear anything of this world; but only fear of disappointing the Father who endlessly showers His Love on us.
So put God, first and foremost in your life…..and see what His Purpose is of your life.
