Following God’s Will Leads To Eternal Happiness

“Do not be like your ancestors, to whom the earlier prophets proclaimed: This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘Turn from your evil ways and your evil practices.’ But they would not listen or pay attention to me, declares the Lord. Where are your ancestors now? And the prophets, do they live forever? But did not my words and my decrees, which I commanded my servants the prophets, overtake your ancestors? “Then they repented and said, ‘The Lord Almighty has done to us what our ways and practices deserve, just as he determined to do.’ ”
‭‭Zechariah‬ ‭1‬:‭4‬-‭6‬ ‭NIV‬‬

We seem to mess up every good thing God does for us. We may expect rejection from God because of our past. We can be spiritually damaged by a sin that seems unforgivable. However, the good news is our heavenly Father loves us with an everlasting love…

We need to acknowledge the fact that we are not perfect — there is nothing righteous in us, we are desperate for His mercy. When the Spirit leads, we must recognize our need for salvation. God provides a Savior through the sacrifice of His only son, Jesus, who rescues us and gives us a seat next to Him at the Lord’s table.

God’s mercy bleached our hearts with the blood of the Lamb. God spoke the universe into existence, breathed life into Adam, stretched out the heavens and looked down and said we belonged to Him. We were adopted by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. We are His next of kin. Our names are written on His hands and in His book of life. His love for us is based on His character, not our performance. And it is greater than we could ever hope for or imagine.

Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross ensued us of an eternity in Heaven with HIM! Please pray for all God’s Children to recognize and accept HIS GIFT! Please pray for me as I am praying for you.
