After the passing away of my mother, I realized something horrible about this world. They don’t care about you or your feelings. I learned that there is no love like a mother; there’s one greater but none equal.
My mom raised me to be ready for this world but I didn’t know simply because I was a teenager and wanted to have fun. No matter how mad I got because she wouldn’t allow me to do as the world did, she stood her ground. She would always and I mean always back it up with “Son I do this because I love you”.
After every beating; after all punishments; they were all followed by “I love you“.
It seems in such a crazy world that we’ve lost sight of what love is. My mom loved me enough to not allow me to do what I wanted to do knowing I was not going to agree with it.
Would she have loved me if she allowed me to do what I wanted?
Love is knowing what’s good for someone and then telling them; which is why I had to write this message.
The huge problem I see is with the churches telling people who all they have to do is have faith and they’ll make it into the kingdom of God. I was just on YouTube and saw a comment from some guy saying there would be murderers, stealers, fornicators etc. in heaven; contrary to the word of God. That’s what propelled me to write this post.
The people of this world are being lied to; thinking as long as they get a few tattoos of who we know as Jesus, wear a cross (which really means the complete opposite of what most think), read a few scriptures here and there and pray sometimes, they’ll make it into the Kingdom of God.
We look at it almost like God needs us in his Kingdom. Best believe he’s doing us a favor and we take it for granted.
What I’m getting at is NO SINNER will make it into the Kingdom of Heaven; and before you start turning to Ephesians, let’s break some things down.
We’re Saved Through Grace? Right?
I noticed that many people just shout out scriptures but don’t even know what they mean. I was once like this. Let’s look at the definition of grace first and get some understanding.
Grace: 1. A disposition to be generous or helpful; goodwill. 2. Mercy; clemency. 3. Divine love and protection bestowed freely on people. 4. The state of being protected or sanctified by the favor of God. 5. An excellence or power granted by God.
Ok so we can basically see that is favor that God did for us; that being stated in John 3:16:
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
That was the gift we were given and according to Titus 2:11, it is available to ALL MEN.
11. For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,
12. teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age,
13. looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,
14. who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.
I went past 11 a bit to show you what God expects for those that take this gift but we’ll get deeper into that in a bit.
So how is one to obtain this FREE gift of salvation that was given to us by the death of Christ on the cross? How are we truly saved?
Ephesians 2:8-10 says it plain as day
8. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9. Not of works, lest any man should boast.
So All I Have To Do Is Have Faith? Right?
