Most of us have heard the name Jesus, maybe even read about some of the miracles he performed and that he was crucified on the cross. But have you heard the full story of Jesus Christ? The one about him giving and giving and giving? If not, please listen.
Dear Lord, from today forwards i no longer live to please me. Here is my life. I’ve messed it up totally. Please forgive me for everything I’ve done. I give my life over to you. Please do whatever you want with me. I want to live only to please you my dear Jesus.
Then do it. Read the bible. Worship God. Pray for people. Cut out all the things of the world: women, porn, drugs, secular TV, movies and music. And all other things of the world.
Jesus gave and gave and gave. He had everything and gave it all away so you and I could have a chance to meet his Dad:
John 10:10 King James Version (KJV)
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
If you love Jesus then be like Jesus. Surrender our will to his Father, as he did, and learn to be like him: give, and give, and give; not thinking of ourselves nor gratifying our fleshly desires (give up the things of the world: TV, movies, secular music, watching sports, porn, fornication, getting drunk, drugs, smoking etc). Live to please God all the time.
Matthew 12:50 King James Version (KJV)
50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
Learn to give to others and be moved by compassion just like Jesus. Do the things that he did. Cast out demons and heal the sick:
Matthew 10:7-8 King James Version (KJV)
7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
Tell people about the full story of Jesus Christ and what he did for all mankind. Turn from our old self focused lives and start living everyday to please God. Jesus didn’t care about the material stuff of the world because he came from heaven. The things of the world will all pass but the things of God are eternal. Jesus chose to be the son of a carpenter and to be poor because he was making a point about this world:
Mark 4:19 King James Version (KJV)
19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.
Jesus said: If you love your life in this world and the things of this world, you’re going to lose your life:
Matthew 16:24-26 King James Version (KJV)
24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
Jesus is focused on your eternal soul. He wants us to focus on eternity and not on our present lives:
Luke 14:25-27 King James Version (KJV)
25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,
26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
If you want to be like Jesus Christ, surrender your life to him. Live to please him by giving and giving and giving. Renounce all human understanding and wisdom. Read his words, obey it and the Holy Spirit will come to dwell in you then the kingdom of God shall be within you and you will do the miracles that Jesus and his disciples did.
