One of the age old problems of our time is Christian unity. We have Catholics, Baptists, Pentecostals, Presbyterians, Methodists, Orthodox,Anglicans, Episcopalians Lutherans, Adventists, Nazarenes, non denominationals etc.
I try to befriend all the Christians and non Christians but we can not please or agree with everybody but still I try my best. What would you think Jesus will do ? I would guess either we are for Jesus or against Him . If we call ourselves Christians then we are for Jesus, time will tell if Jesus really knows us.
Have you tried reconciling every ones beliefs ? Hard ,isn't it ? Do I have the answer ? No, I don't think so and I will try an easy way out , I will wait till Jesus Christ return.
The Bible clearly wrote or it is clearly written in the Bible that Jesus Christ will return, although it did not say exactly when. Since there is no date, that means we have to be ready any time. What does it mean to be ready ? Well if you are a Christian, then we are supposed to be following Jesus.And that means we are to be doing what Jesus commanded. We are not to be distracted by the activities of the world. Yes the world is very enticing and even the need to put food on the table and put roof over our head could use most of our day.
But let us not lose sight of what we are here for. One of the most urgent is to call more people to Jesus . What do this mean ? This means a person without Jesus have no hope of eternal life and so we have to encourage them to have a personal relationship with Jesus. Now again what do this mean ? It means Jesus knows you and you know Jesus. You may ask , how do we do that ? According to the Bible, we are all sinners , we have violated God's laws, one violation is enough for us to be considered sinner. You may say , wow that is very strict. Yes it is very strict and no one is able to follow God's laws except Jesus Christ. Jesus is God's only begotten Son who came to earth in human flesh , lived a sinless life and died for us.He rose from the dead, in what we call resurrection and now sitted at the right hand of God the Father, interceding for us. By believing in Jesus , we put on the righteousness of Jesus, after we repent of our own sins. And then we begin our new life in Jesus.
Now what are we to do ? If you are already a Christian, then you already know what to do . If you forgot , the Bible will remind us what to do . If you are not yet a Christian, then you may want to know who Jesus is . You may want to ask a Christian, or search the Bible on your own.
What if you don't want to know Jesus, then you are saying you do not want any part of Him. For me that is very dangerous but that is your choice.
But my hope is you want to know Jesus and have a personal relationship with Him . His Spirit will be with you through the Holy Spirit from God the Father once you confess Him as your Lord and Savior.
