Jesus is the only influence to retain

Mathew 10, 37 Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me;

The real truth is that we must sacrifice ourselves, giving everything away for the love of God. We may think of the rich young man when we think of saving our precious little life (Mark 10, 17-31) or the following verse Mathew 16, 26 what good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? Of course everyone wants to enjoy life, me included, and I do believe that God intends us to appreciate life as a gift, but not at the expense of others, or ignoring the needs of others, when we can help so much; the better help must be or include preaching the gospel where knowing Jesus Christ brings joy, strength, and needed spirituality to face all earthly circumstance toward an eternal life. Romans 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” 14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

Christ is the light of the world; still I believe that love can exist in those apart his particular signature, which is God’s ultimate fidelity given through Jesus Christ, the Divine compassion that recognises human weakness and suffering, giving all the needed substance through spirituality and love for life on earth and in heaven.

It may be difficult to appreciate the facts and that doesn’t take away the love and devotion of certain individuals of different faith. We may think of Ghandi or any individual that mark their surrounding in a blessed way but where not of Christian faith. I appreciated a simple artist that was an atheist but gave a lot to others throughout her short life, loving and helping sick children. 1 Corinthians 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.

God knows the heart of man; The Gospel is simply the better help that exist for everyone to evolve in the better direction. John 4, 4 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth. The new alliance oversees the law and washes away transgressions of all believers 2 Corinthians 3, 16-17 But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Knowing his name is to know is signature: Jesus Christ. It is close to impossible to be holy and we may want to put ourselves down to be forgiven, still we must show our best strength. The fact remain that we are full of sin and that we must confess them. The only true holy existence on earth that remains is the word, which is more forgiving that we can imagine, because we must try to redeemed ourselves even dough we are undeserving, and by so keep on believing that we can help others.

1 Timothy 6- 9 But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.

11 But you, Timothy, are a man of God; so run from all these evil things. Pursue righteousness and a godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight for the true faith. Hold tightly to the eternal life to which God has called you, which you have confessed so well before many witnesses. 13 And I charge you before God, who gives life to all, and before Christ Jesus, who gave a good testimony before Pontius Pilate, 14 that you obey this command without wavering. Then no one can find fault with you from now until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again. 15 For at just the right time Christ will be revealed from heaven by the blessed and only almighty God, the King of all kings and Lord of all lords. 16 He alone can never die, and he lives in light so brilliant that no human can approach him. No human eye has ever seen him, nor ever will. All honor and power to him forever! Amen.

17 Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. 18 Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. 19 By doing this they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they may experience true life.

Revelation 14 They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”

Help us God to do the right thing in the name of Jesus Christ our Saviour, so that we can find strength love and happiness following the steps of our Lord. Amen!

Jesus is the bread of life

Eating the bread of life is recognising the facts, the reason for the works of Christ. He who eats his flesh and drinks his blood admits that he needs the divine examples of the Lord: It is admitting that Jesus lived, suffered, died crucified and was resurrected for us. The more we approach God the more we must be worthy. The way becomes demanding having less and less reasons for not being better, in any terms, grace is always present and we must acknowledge ourselves has sinners and be repentant. John 6, 28” They replied, “We want to perform God’s works, too. What should we do?”29 Jesus told them, “This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.”

John 6, 35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. 36 But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. 37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. 38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me. 39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. 40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”

Blessed is the Lord!

Jesus gave everything.

Jesus was rich but made himself poor, so he was healing the sick and doing miracles as he was a poor man without even a place to sleep. Mathew 8,20 Jesus replied, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."

The rich young man, (Mark 10: 17-31)

We can criticise the rich young man as we want but what I retain is verse 27 where Jesus answer the question: “who then can be saved” 27 Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God."It is practically impossible to follow our lord in a perfect way; that is why he came for us, to give us additional tools and guidance. He was sacrifice at 33 years of age, the only sacrifice needed to save all of humanity. There is but one Christ; he came to relieve us from pain and to ask us to do the same for others. We must be joyful to live life through grace and not through law. Of course we must not commit any sins on purpose because we are under grace. Romans 6, 14 for sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.

For the rich young man and others like him, we must remember that Jesus was rich and made himself poor for us, he renounced earthly possessions to share the meaning of life with the poor people. Love is the true meaning of life, where love can be divine. He answers the young man: “Why do you call me good, no one is good but God. Of course he wasn’t declaring everything of himself to this poor good but searching soul.

Bless you Lord for showing us the way to freedom.

Jesus was rich but made himself poor

Popular belief would argue that he was poor, and that his only means where being able to make miracles; it is partially true where the saviour reached out by his social situation of humblenous. In these modern times, we must realize the real facts. We must listen, implicate ourselves and study; for those that have the capability, it is as simple as reading and believing the bible.

I am not the best example, although I do believe that I am now showing better judgement in my personal life. I practically read the entire bible as an adolescent, and have picked it up now and then throughout my life. It is to me impossible not to learn anything, and that, simply by doing the minimum.

Take note of my communication: Jesus was rich financially, it is evident, take note of my comprehension, and analyse it for yourself. Jesus was financially well off because he got gifts from the wise men at his birth. Mathew 2, 11 they entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

It has to me no sense in believing on a symbolic treasure and in pertinent facts at the same time. Those magi came from far away guided by a star, they came to recognise a king by there own purpose and means, they where not seeking to proclaimed measly daily survival.

In the course of his man life Jesus chose the path he would follow under his father’s love. I think that it is a fact to all Christians that Jesus could offer himself all the riches; we just have to recall the temptation of the devil in the desert where he was offered luxury.

But evidence comes in matter in 2 Corinthians 8 where greater union is desired with the churches of Macedonia who where so generous in there time of troubles and poverty.

2 Corinthians 8 (New International Version), 9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

God Bless!
