All God’s people can look forward to an undefiled inheritance of eternity in heaven.
3. Blessed be the God & Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.5. Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
Life is constant change but many of us remain stagnant in who we are as people our entire lives. We stick to wrong and false beliefs that we learned from other dysfunctional people in our lives. We do what the world tells us to do, not what God means for us to do in our lives. We are not letting God do a transformation within us.
It was written that God called from heaven when Jesus was baptized telling Him who He was to God. How many of us will never hear what God thinks of us because we have all kinds of stumbling blocks by not living the life destined for us, being disobedient, selfish & self-centered or being distracted by all the other things in the world in our lives everyday.How many of us will ever really be up to the challenge of “Taking up our cross to follow Jesus?” How many of us let the Holy Spirit minister to us with an open spirit ourselves? Are any of us really willing to be obedient “even unto death” with all the pleasures and treasures tempting us here on earth?It is a hard and narrow to path to walk in righteousness and hence the reason Jesus said few will enter the gates of heaven. You have to have the heart for God to be willing to sacrifice personal gain and pleasure to serve Him. Peace be to all who read and understand.
