Many people ask the question, “Where do I stand?”. That question is only answered up to what you believe. Starting from the basics of this blog, I am basing this one upon where you stand in sharing His word.
As a follower of Christ, I still slip up and sin. We all do. There is no one perfect besides Jesus Christ. But even through our sin, our Lord forgives us. He loves us so much that He paid for our sins by dying on the cross… for us! Think about it. Have you thanked Him today for paying the price of ALL of our sins? Have you even thanked Him recently?
There is no way possible to ever thank our Lord enough for dying on the cross just to save us, but one thing we can do is share His beautiful word. Whether its to a single person or to crowds of people, it brings such joy to Him to have more people know Him.
One thing I live my life by is knowing that I and everyone else is on this earth for Him. He is the one who created us, and we are only living on a temporary world that He blessed us with. The true and everlasting life is not far away from us. It is going to be so beautiful and full of happiness all of the time. So why try to live our life so pointlessly on this earth He has given us? The Lord wants us to go out and live through Him. For us to share the word and help multiply decibels. Guys, He is glorious. Christ is going to put an end to all suffering. No one knows the day He will return, but more than likely, He’s not coming back until everyone has heard of the beautiful name of Jesus.
So why are you living carelessly? Everyone plays a roll in this life to live through Him. But your life doesn’t start until you’ve accepted Him into your heart. And truly, He IS happiness. True fulfillment doesn’t come from anything other than Jesus. He is waiting on you to live your life through Him and to start getting His word out. No matter what age or how you’ve lived your life already, He always forgives, He always loves you, and He wants you to want Him.
So where do you stand? You and I both are apart of His great kingdom. Luke 13:18-19 says, “Then Jesus asked, ‘What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to? It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds perched in its branches.'” If you know what the tree looks like grown from a mustard seed, then you know its a very large tree. They are usually wide, full, and tall. These trees continue to grow and grow to become very large. What I took away from this passage is that Jesus planted this mustard seed, and over the years, He’s had help from many birds, natural resources, and other animals to help create this large tree that is still continuing to grow. In this, we are like the birds, animals, and resources. Without them, this tree would grow very slow. So in reality, without us, His kingdom would grow slowly. He wants us to help create decibels among the nations to help His kingdom grow until the day He returns.
The next time you doubt yourself with the Lord, know that He loves you and he needs you to stop wasting your time. Go share our beyond amazing creator with everyone!
