|Christ Died For You|
But Will You Die For Him?
One way you can let go of your wants is by realizing how short this life is, that, and how Christ's second coming may only be months or a few years away. Everyone seems to be saying it now that the Apostasy has just started to really begin its march toward Tribulation. So many of the preachers and ministers in America are echoing a similar chorus of worry and joy: Christ is coming very soon! No matter how you think about it, you need to realize that your hopes and dreams are not possible anymore since you will not have the time to pursue them. Let them go if not for Christ but for logic's sake. If there is not enough time to enjoy the evils people (and you) pursue, then why would you bother and lose out on the preciousness of the relationship in Christ Jesus? Christ is best to pursue whether you live a year or ten thousand years of life left to live. Christ will always be your answer.
My words are reflected in 1 Peter 2:21-25 as well (my words are merely an echo!)
21 For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us,[a] leaving us[b] an example, that you should follow His steps..."
The amount of references to following Christ without anything else in your heart are staggering so much so that it is amazing people can delude themselves into thinking they are Christians at all. There is only one way to interpret what Christ says, and it is reflected by Christ's own actions, for just as Jesus died for us according to the Father's will so must we surrender all our lives and wants to Christ's will! So if you are in Christ and are actually SAVED, then you will walk in the light and your actions will reflect your salvation through Christ Jesus being your sole objective in life!
My friend, I pray that you will get a grip on your heart and let Christ lead you. Forsake your desires. Let them go. They will destroy you. They will lead you away from Jesus. If you want anything in life that is not Christ Himself then you are not following Christ in the way He wants you to. None of your desires are worth pursuing, only Christ is. Read your Bible and know that I speak the truth. I hope the verses below will inspire you, my friend. I always cry when I read this below!!
