I noticed that many people actually love Jesus. They honestly do. But far from what I see, in the same mouth profess and confess Jesus as their Lord. But their deeds are rotten and mouth are filled with malicious acts and deceit.
In the past years of living in my faith in Jesus, I had seen may people and heard many people who says they love Him and He is their Lord. And before I came to faith, I see many who speaks too much about Jesus but I dont see Jesus in them. And those things are written in the bible, that Jesus turns His head towards people whom that thinks are very religious and perfect. ''Why you call me Lord, Lord and do not do what I say? Depart from me you who do iniquity''
Well, even if you say Jesus is Lord 10 times a day but your lifestyle and the way you behave is far from what Jesus does, it will anyways bring you far from him. I am not a judgemental person but I believe every word that is written in the bible. from the Beginning to the end.
We say, If a person goes to church all the time and believes that that person is peaceful only when they are in the church, right after the sunday mass or sunday service or prayer meeting, they went out and drink, swear, took something that is not theirs, envy, and even looks at another opposite sex with lust. That person is the same like the Man in the mirror that as soon as he left the mirror, he forgot what he saw. Same with the person as soon they left the church, they forgot they heard and continued with what they satisfies their body. For the body indeed is strong in craving things of this world, Yet the Spirit of God, if that is not fed and if the heart is not obedient towards God, that person is living dead.
First, When I came to faith, I thought always Im a sinner, and yes I prayed the sinners prayer. I thought it was okay to just belive and accepts Jesus in my heart and then I shall be saved. But in the context of the word, Saved is referred to a person that is baptised in water and in Spirit, that person shall be saved. I was lied to, for many years, i bought that lie and ive lived that lie. But when the time came that I read the bible and understood it, I saw that Jesus preached Repentance as He says
