A lot of people today want to tell you what to do. A lot of people who want to tell you what to do, want to tell you what to do just because they want to tell you what to do. (Go back and read that slowly – you will get it!) They want to put their rules and regulations on others, while often times they ignore for themselves, what they are trying to saddle someone else with.
I am a follower of Christ! I love Jesus and believe that out of his love for me that he died on the cross, so that all of my sins could be forgiven and I could be restored to right relationship with my Creator and live in a forever spiritual connection that changes everything. I desire for other people to experience this relationship, because it has made all of the difference in my life.
I have some guidelines that God has provided for me in His Word. Because I love Him, I try to live according to these guidelines. People are going to do what they want to do, but if we could and would experience the love of Christ, then I believe that doing what we need to do gets a whole lot easier.
Jesus put it this way in John 14:15 “If you love me, you will obey what I command!” Jesus does not command, just to command. Jesus commands to lead us into victory and blessing. It’s not because you have to, but because you get to and what He commands is best. What he commands is best, because he really has our best interest and our blessing at heart!
Don’t allow others and their trying to put something on you to get in the way of your having a real and meaningful relationship with the one who loves you more than words can even describe! Get to really know Jesus – you’ll be glad you did!
