Today Reminder – 09 May 2017

A reminder for today
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your strength comes from God's grace, not from rules about food, which don't help those who follow them. (Hebrews 13:8-9)

The world loves to adjust the Bible to whatever we prefer and what does not hurt our feelings. So if the Bible says that a gay marriage is wrong we will find a way to justify it, because it will hurt people’s feelings. We will accept other beliefs and call ourselves Christians, but we live as if we are without religion. People will do anything to justify what they do as if it is correct. We forget that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. He does not change nor does the Bible. The guidelines that the Bible gave us can never be altered for our own gain. 

And I solemnly declare to everyone who hears the words of prophecy written in this book: If anyone adds anything to what is written here, God will add to that person the plagues described in this book. And if anyone removes any of the words from this book of prophecy, God will remove that person's share in the tree of life and in the holy city that are described in this book. (Revelation 22:18-19)

Therefore, do not be attracted by strange ideas or anything that contradicts what is written in the Word of God. When we live our lives for Jesus, it is important that we live out His ideals and His directions that He gave us. Yes, we must love our neighbour, but we must love them enough to help them find their way to God. We do force our beliefs, but we guide out of love so that no one will be lost and everyone will be saved. We share the gospel, because we know and live in this truth. Jesus died for all, therefore there is no reason we cannot try to save all.  

Lord, we ask that you open your Word to us so that we can live in the truth of what you teaches. Let us show your ways, by the way we live so that other will also desire a life that is different from the rest. Let us show your grace and proclaim your salvation. In Jesus name. 

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
