Art of Living #30

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #30 : "34 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. 35 And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. 36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed."" (John 8:34-36).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : Christianity is not just one of the religion in the world that gives humans a sense of spiritual satisfaction, but it is the unique one and only God ordained belief system that leads a man to God and adopts him in to the family of God. According to Jesus, "whoever commits sin is a slave of sin." Do all religious people in the world commit sin and that too atleast once in their life? Yes even daily, because we are born sinners. That means Jesus is saying, people of all religions in the world are sinners. So religion is not a answer to man's spiritual problems.

A sinner cannot ever find the true God who calls Himself as the "Holy One of Israel" (Isa 30:15). This is why God Himself had the heavenly blueprint to reach all men through His Son Jesus and executed it before two thousand years and sealed a new agreement with humanity. In the agreement God the Father signed with Jesus, he declared that all who accept Jesus as His only Begotten Son will inherit the legal right to be a heir of all His wealth. So Jesus the Christ has become the only God ordained dispenser of adoptive rights of God to all humanity who believe in Him. Jesus takes the sin problem of those who believe in Him and sets them free from it forever to become legally adopted as God's own adopted child. Because Jesus being sinlessly perfect died once and for all time a death which God accepted as the antidote and substitute for his adopted children's on earth, He sees each one of us who believe in Jesus as righeous and perfect as Jesus is from heaven now.

Therefore Jesus said, if the Son [i.e. pointing to Himself] makes you free from sin problem, you can continue to be a child of God for eternity ahead. O what a priviledge!!! A slave is a religious person who works with all his might to get saved and enter heaven. He wants to earn salvation through his own hard work. Inspite of striving to enter heaven, they will not be able to abide with this Holy God in heaven because he demands a hundred percentage perfect righteousness (James 2:10). WHEN JESUS FORGIVES YOU, HE FORGIVES YOUR PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE SINS AND MAKES YOU A CHILD OF GOD FOR ETERNITY AHEAD!!!! As our body is considered as a house in which our spirit-man legally lives on this earth, as God's child even though we physically die once and after that at the time of the rapture of the Church we will all rise up in a glorious body which has no death for eternity ahead. We will surely abide once again in this God's house of our body forever. Praise the Lord!


Apostolic Quotes

Å℘◎﹩☂øł☤ḉ ℚυ◎тℯṧ : "When you put no value to your relationship with God, God puts no value to your service that you do for Him. You can prophesy, cast out demons and even do many wonders through your calling anointing, but when you are not born as His child in your spirit, all these works will go down the pipe as works which are not valuable enough to save your own soul." — Abraham Israel

Great Quotes

Ḡґℯαт ℚυø⊥εṧ : "John Wesley tells of a dream he had. In the dream, he was ushered to the gates of Hell. There he asked, "Are there any Presbyterians here?" "Yes!", came the answer. Then he asked, "Are there any Baptists? Any Episcopalians? Any Methodists?" The answer was Yes! each time. Much distressed, Wesley was then ushered to the gates of Heaven. There he asked the same question, and the answer was No! "No?" To this, Wesley asked, "Who then is inside?" The answer came back, "There are only Christians here." (1 Cor 1:10-17)" — John Wesley

Manna for the Day

ℳαηηα ḟøґ тℌℯ Ðα¥ : "For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!" (1 Corinthians 9:16, NKJV).

Apostle Paul was greatly in Love with Jesus that he began to feel that it was a necessity for him to preach. True service for God starts with a heart of gratitude towards all that the Lord has done already for you. The heart of gratitude will say that, 'Even if God does not do anything more than what He has already done, still I am indebted to live for Him the rest of my life and serve Him humbly.' These are the kind of people who will boast only in God who does all things for them and in them. If we truly feel the love of God in our lives, we cannot but love others. Fear of judgment did not drive Paul the apostle to preach the gospel to as many as he could like a mad man gone out of his mind, but the love of God made him to say and do things that blessed people spiritually and saved them from hell fire for eternity ahead (2 Cor 5:14). LET US GO DEEPER IN TO GOD'S LOVE AND AS A RESULT GET THE HEART BEAT OF GOD TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO AS MANY AS WE COULD IN WHATEVER WAY WE CAN LIKE THE APOSTLE PAUL DID. Much Blessings......
