“Can’t I walk a good and wholesome life, and be separate from claiming Jesus Christ? Why does Jesus have to be the only way to secure heaven for me? Can’t God see that I’m good and kind and helpful each day, isn’t that enough? That’s my question today?
Questions of man. Big questions too. Asked from man to man in sincerity in truth…
This was me, years ago. Exactly! I wanted to know! (I put exclamation points after the thoughts because I understand if this is you- ’cause I was there…I read of Edward Casey and was out on a limb…), yes, I was there. Confusion and questions everywhere!
So, I must ask, instead of answer, my question to your thoughts: “Have you taken your burden of unanswered questions to God? To God, do you ask? Have you asked Him directly? He is able to hear.
Just because your eyes can’t see Him, He hears and He speaks…if you really want answers to questions like these,
talk to God and ask Him sincerely…
but you can’t find the answers In the clouds, or the trees…they’ve been written, yes, written words, they’ve been breathed!
If you have trouble knowing what to do, start asking, seeking and knocking on The door of God’s heart. He will guide you out of the dark.
Open His word. Pray to Him. Ask for ears to receive. Open the Book, The Holy Bible. Ask Him what to believe!
God is faithful. God is good. He will show you the way…if you want more than to be understood!
Do you want to be ‘right?’ Or do you really want to hear? Hey, I was in your place with questions like this…But God…
He knew my questions were sincere.
He did more than just speak words on the page…He began to open my eyes to His love and His grace. He brought me to still waters,…
I could see the reflection of me, and my pride and compulsive and impulsive ways, and my resentful and selfish and easily angered sways.
There is peace like a river in His word if you choose.
So, what about Jesus? He will show you the Truth. God will answer your questions, as you walk with Him through the Gospels of Luke, and John, and Mark, and Matthew!
You can really know someone by the prayers that they pray. ‘Suffer’, ‘allow’ me to share the prayer Jesus prayed – straight from God’s word, the rhyming will end… But I pray you are touched by God… Through Him:
“Father the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You,
“As You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him.
“And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
“I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.
“And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.
“I have mane feared Your name to the men whom You’ve given Me out if the world. They were Yours, You gave them to me, and they have kept Your word…”
“I pray for them the words which You have given Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed that You sent Me…
“Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are…
“O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me.
“And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the live with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”(John 17, in part… But please read it in its entirety)…
If you read this far, please let me know – if you believe and receive God’s great forgiveness, through the blood of His Son whom He sent , Jesus !
He has washed your sins white as snow! How do we know? How can we know?
The Bible! Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so.
