For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. But after that the kindness and love of GOD our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which He shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by His grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in GOD might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men. (Tit 3:3-8)
We are no longer of this world, and we should no longer be conformed to its ways, but transformed by His Word and His Spirit, in our hearts and minds, that we would be fully persuaded ambassadors of His Kingdom. We are on mission for our Lord, and He has work for us to do, not to earn or keep what He has already paid for, but because of our love for Him and our relationship with Him and the Father.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is our only hope. Those who are not in Christ act according to their nature, just as we did when we were without hope in this world. Only through the changed nature that comes from being born again in Christ and discipled in His Word can people become new, and families become holy, and communities become righteous. This world cannot do it, governments and their laws cannot change the hearts of men, only GOD and His power can make a difference that begins the moment a person receives Him by faith and lasts for all eternity. This world will pass away, but our relationship is secure in Christ and we are here to make a difference.
He has left us here, as ministers of reconciliation, and His witnesses, to do His will and accomplish His work in this world, until all who will come have believed. He has called us to missions and ministry, to help and comfort those who are hurting and in need, as He provides and blesses, that others might see Jesus in us, the hope of Glory. He has commanded us to love on another, as He loved us and as His disciples that all may know we are His, and that we might grow in Him as we disciple one another in His Word. He has commissioned us to His battle, not with weapons of this world, but with the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of GOD, studied and proven, to take the Good News of reconciliation and forgiveness to this world, that those who repent and believe in Him might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
