Live on purpose

Romans 8:35-37 (AMP) 35 Who shall ever separate us from the love of [a]Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 Just as it is written and forever remains written, “For Your sake we are put to death all day long; We are regarded as sheep for the slaughter.” 37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors and gain an overwhelming victory through Him who loved us [so much that He died for us].

When you have personal problems and trials don’t think that God does not care. Our trouble is not a sign that God does not love us. God will work all of our problems out for good. Do not let your suffering and trouble separate you from the love of God. You are perfectly loved by God. It is not a lack of troubles that make us a conqueror it is not giving up and knowing we are perfectly loved by God in our troubles.

God loves us and we are the apple of His eye. It is up to us to believe the love that God has for us. God protects us when things are coming at us. Sometimes it seems we feel His absence more than His protection. When we feel that way, it is not that God isn’t there, it’s that God plans on using that experience to make us a better person and maybe to help others better their lives.

The Holy Spirit fills our personality. When we start to believe God’s love for us then we start to feel His love for us. We start believing by noticing the little things He does for us on a daily basis that we tend to overlook. Close fellowship with God is the very thing that distinguishes us as believers in Christ. When we have close fellowship, we know God and God knows us. God cares about every detail of our life.

Ephesians 3:16-19 (AMP) 16 May He grant you out of the riches of His glory, to be strengthened and spiritually energized with power through His Spirit in your inner self, [indwelling your innermost being and personality], 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through your faith. And may you, having been [deeply] rooted and [securely] grounded in love, 18 be fully capable of comprehending with all the saints (God’s people) the width and length and height and depth of His love [fully experiencing that amazing, endless love]; 19 and [that you may come] to know [practically, through personal experience] the love of Christ which far surpasses [mere] knowledge [without experience], that you may be filled up [throughout your being] to all the fullness of God [so that you may have the richest experience of God’s presence in your lives, completely filled and flooded with God Himself]. 

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

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
