Serve the Lord with fear, And rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, And you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are those who put their trust in Him. Psalm 2:11-12 NKJV
One day every head will bow and every knee bend before Jesus Christ!
I believe with my whole heart that every Word of God was given to us as an encouragement or exhortation to serve Jesus with fear and trembling!
I have heard people say, “You can’t just teach the love of God. That is telling people what they want to hear.” Or, “You can’t talk about heaven with talking about hell.” Some say, “When you share the gospel you should always start with the law.”
A ministry teaches the gospel must be shared in a very specific way or it may result in a false conversion. I am troubled by those statements. Salvation is not dependent on performance. The Holy Spirit opens blind eyes. We are saved through faith in Jesus!
Everything Jesus does is based on perfect love for His creation!
God judges sin. He punishes evil. He poured out His wrath in the past. He will pour it out in the future. God’s enemies will be held accountable. People who choose not to live in relationship with Jesus will spend eternity separated from His blessing and protection.
God has feelings and emotions. He gets angry. What angers Him the most? God is angered by things that hurt His people!
When anyone or anything opposes God people and angelic beings are influenced. One third of the angels followed Satan into rebellion against God. Unbelief spreads like deadly cancer on the earth. Spiritually blind people are leading each other into destruction.
God has a perfect plan for creation. He has a specific plan for each one of us. Woe to those who oppose the Lord. There will be no place to hide when God unleashes His wrath!
I could go on and on talking about the benefits of living with and for the Lord of Heaven and Earth. I will simply say this; everyone who chooses to love Jesus Christ will be blessed forever!
Love is not just an emotion. It is not just a choice. Love is an act of faith. Love is a person. His Name is Jesus!
You can choose to love Jesus today and throughout eternity. Let your love for God arise up to Him like a kiss upon His cheek!
Jesus loves you. He wants you to love Him!
