Matthew 13:44 (AMP) 44 The kingdom of heaven is like [a]something precious buried in a field, which a man found and hid again; then in his joy he goes and sells all he has and buys that field.
What are we willing to sacrifice in order to have peace and joy in our lives? We can become addicted to peace. The world is likely not going to change so it is up to us to adjust. For example, we can avoid drama in our lives ~ as well as some people who create drama in our lives. There might be some adjustments that need to be made – but they will be worth the peace you feel at the end.
We all have equal opportunity to have a great life with God. We have a choice to walk a straight and narrow path or a wide path of destruction. If we chose the narrower path we will have some difficult decisions to make and let our conscious guide us a little bit more. Is it worth sacrificing morals we have in order to lose our peace and joy? What is righteousness, peace, and joy worth to you? I do not always make the right decision but I do always ask for God’s help in this area. I never regret making the right decision but I do regret making the wrong decision.
Sometimes we don’t make good decision and we sacrifice morals because we really do not know who we are in Christ and we are looking for approval from other people.
It is time for us to make a decision to live a deeper life with Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:21 (AMP) 21 For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [[a]endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness].
If you would like to accept Jesus as your savior, and you are not quite sure how, it is as simple as saying a prayer to God letting Him know you are ready to accept Him into your life. Say this prayer if you would like to invite Jesus to live in your heart:
Father God, I love you and believe in you. I need you Lord and I am sorry for my sins and the way that I live. Lord, I want you in my life. I receive Jesus as my savior and Lord. I believe that Jesus died for me and rose from the dead. Lord take me as I am and make me the way you want me to be. God, thank you for saving me and being with me on my journey. I am looking forward to my journey with you Lord. I know you will equip me for my journey and I am glad I have you by my side as I walk this walk of Life. Thank you Lord, I love you. Amen
