Dear friends in Jesus Christ
Thank you Father, for your Son, in whom all your Glory and Greatness is revealed. Holy Spirit lead us as Father will it. Amen
Today during the Mass after the Holy Communion I had a strange but awe filled experience. Thanks be to God for that. And I want to share it with you all.
Our Lives are very much connected with the Jesus Christ, that we accept it or not, we live in Him.
So let me tell you this first that our live is actually moving, every single day, we are actually going forward in our life.
Maybe we are just sitting and dreaming, and thinking, but who says its not work?
Maybe that’s the work which God has decided for you at the moment.
So my point is that we are always at work, no matter what we are doing, so either we work for Jesus, or we work against Him. There is no in-between.
The reason I’m telling you this, is because to work for Jesus, means to accept God’s call in your life, and follow it, no I’m telling you that in one day you have to be perfect, I’m telling you that make effort one day by the Grace of God, you will succeed.
Friends, no sin, comes from God, no temptations comes from God, but God allows it so that by the grace and love of His Son Jesus, those little imperfections in our life, can be removes and we can become perfect like Him one day, to meet the standard of Heaven. (Thank you Mayur Doriel my Mentor in Christ Jesus for sharing this with me)
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. – Revelation 21:4
You see Jesus said Heaven is a place where there is no Pain, but in this world we all live in Pain, and Pain is caused by Sin either of mine or yours, just give it a thought and you will understand what God is telling you through me.
Workers of Jesus
So what makes you a worker for Jesus?
Like God told you through me in the last letter that you need Love, but the problem with Love, is we can Love people, and we get exhausted and one day our Love will end.
But Jesus, who is molded in love He can never be exhausted of His Mercy and Love.
John 13:34-35 tells us,
A new commandment I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so also you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another.”
So what I’m trying to tell you is, that through your actions and words when you try to Love one another, and Love God, bring them to Jesus, so that just like Mustard seed, that is growing inside you into a big tree of Hope, Love and Faith and Mercy, it can grow in them too.
John 5:24 tells us
“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.”
So there was a reason this is written in Matthew 28:18-20
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
So when you bring them to Jesus, you are not only trying to Bring Him or Her to Jesus, but He/She is also making efforts, in that way, the entire thing becomes a bit simple.
But in that life when we commit a Sin, we actually condemn the Lord, and allow Satan to Torture and Crucify Him. Just like the Jews condemned Jesus to crucifixion, we also do that.
I would also tell you that then we work for satan, and we are not free, we are bound slaves, treated harshly, we are always in sin, living without hope, living with no or little or fake faith, with attitude, pride, with no or little or fake love.
God has told you this before that, all sins lead to death, however the process is like this, when we sin, we become afraid, and in our fear, we do things which are socially and in other ways wrong or awkward, and then when people judge us, we hate them, and we divide in between ourselves and isolate us from all of them, and in the long term with the world.
And when we isolate ourselves from God and from one another, buddy we are into satan’s kingdom, just like hes alone, he wants us to be alone too, and in that loneliness all the diseases like depression and all catches up with us, and then we commit suicide and die.
However there’s another way, that way of life, the way of Jesus, that when take part in the Sacrament of Reconciliation or Confession or simply say “sorry” to the Lord, from our heart, and take part in the Holy Eucharist, by eating the Body(Host/Bread) & by drinking the Blood(Wine) of our Lord Jesus Christ, wholeheartedly, we accept Him as the the our King just like the Jewish people accepted Lord Jesus Christ, and welcomed Him to Jerusalem.
And in that we get back the life, that satan wanted to snatch from us, that love faith and hope, which satan wanted to destroy, kill and steal.
So in short, what I’m trying to tell you that the choice is ours, We want a King(Jesus) who will bring peace in our hearts, and make us happy, and empower us.
Or we want a despot(satan) who is just like any other despot, who wants to kill, steal and destroy.
We are His Church
Jesus was true also when He said that Matthew 16:18
And I tell you that you are Peter,and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
And we all know that we are that church, for it is also said in 1 Corinthians 6:19 – Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?
And Romans 12:1 – Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God–this is your true and proper worship
And Romans 8:38-39
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Lastly I want to tell you what I was reading lately,
Christians Will Be Judged. When, Where and Why?
- When will it happen? Immediately after the Rapture. This is obvious for several reasons. But primarily, judgment always follows departure of one’s life from the Earth – Hebrews 9:27
- Where will it happen? In Heaven. Romans 14:10-12
- Who will the participants be?
a. Jesus Christ – Romans 14:10,12
b. The Christians – These will be believers who make up the body of Christ/The Church. (1 Corinthians 3)
c. God The Father – Romans 14:12
- What is the purpose? 1 Corinthians 3:11,15
The purpose is to reward faithful and fruitful Servants. Note: We will not be judged for our sins. Jesus bore our sins at the cross. At the cross Jesus was judged for our sins.
At the Judgment Seat of Christ, we will be judged for the following:
a. Our behavior not our belonging
b. Our stewardship not our son-ship
c. Our works not our worth
d. Our faithfulness not our faith
e. Our communion not our union
f. Our adapting not our adoption
g. Our relating not our relationship
- What will the Rewards be?
a. The incorruptible crown – Given to those who master the old nature. 1 Cor. 9:25,27
b. The crown of rejoicing – Given to soul winners (1 Thess. 2:19,20)
c. The crown of life – Given to those who successfully endure temptation. Rev. 2:10
d. The crown of righteousness – Given to those who especially love the doctrine of the Rapture. 2 Tim. 4:8
e. The crown of glory – given to faithful preachers and teachers (1 Peter 5:2,4; 2 Tim. 4:1,2).
The single greatest achievement of any Christian is bringing glory to Jesus Christ.
So dear friends, live life, with Hope, Have Faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, and Love Him, and Love one another, and trust you God will reward you in His Kingdom in more ways that you can imagine.
Trust me friends “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” – Romans 8:18
