Jesus is the light that shines on a dark world. He allows us to see the reality of how things really are. The beauty of His shining light, is that in order to see the reality of this world, that Jesus presents to us, one must be a Christian. A believer in Christ is able to discern what is morally right from what is wrong with their life. Someone who does not believe in Christ cannot see these differences, and does not care. Rejecting Christ, these people live in and are lost in, a world of darkness. Adore the light that Jesus shines for us. It illuminates the path to salvation and to heaven.
Worship Jesus and bow down to Him. Acknowledge that He is your God. He gave up His life for His generation and all generations to follow. Jesus is worthy of our love and respect, but we are not worthy of His. It is wonderful and humbling to know that even though He did not deserve to die, and we do not deserve to be saved, Jesus accepted God's role for His life, because He loves us.
God made Jesus, king for all eternity and exalted Him above all others. He now resides in heaven, preparing to one day us home, when God commands it to be done.
Jesus came to the earth that He created, not to show off His powers, but to save us from certain doom. He came down from His throne in heaven and humbled Himself here on earth to live among the least of mankind. He did not associate Himself with the rich and powerful, but instead lived among and experienced the struggles of normal, everyday people. He was born in a stable and didn't have a steady place to sleep during His ministry. However, God always provides.
Mankind will never be able to realize the full effect of how much it cost Jesus and pained Him, physically and mentally to be crucified on a cross for our sins. We owe Jesus a debt that we can never repay. We can, however, thank Him by accepting His free gift of salvation. Jesus paid our debt. Believe and know that what He did for us is true and real. He did not die in vain, He died for you and me. Jesus will someday return and take us home.
Worship Jesus and acknowledge Him as your Lord and Savior. He loved us enough to die for us. Love Him enough to live for Him.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
