What if I don’t “Choose?” (part 2)

This is an addition to “What if I don’t want a “Savior?”

I just read the above and noticed that someone could say they used their will and chose not to choose, either for or against surrendering to Jesus.  Jesus is stuck then isn’t he?  They didn’t say yes, they didn’t say no.  What is Jesus going to do?  They didn’t reject Jesus or his love, they just didn’t choose.

Giving “no answer” to the offer of life and relationship with Jesus is giving the “answer no” to the offer of life and relationship to Jesus.  Jesus suffered infinite pain so that you could avoid hell and be with him forever.  He has drawn you to read this to tell you of his infinite love for you.  He offers you himself.  He gives you the choice, because He will not force himself on you.  Love doesn’t force itself on anyone.  All of Jesus wants all of you.  There are no games here . . .  such as saying you won’t decide.  This is eternal life or eternal death.  This is your choice.  If . . . by your last breath, you don’t turn away from your sins with His help, and ask Him to save you . . .  you will experience forever without the One who loves you most . . . alone. . . in anguish that you rejected Love. . .  forever without hope.

Love One Another

I asked the Lord, what is my purpose,
What was I created for?
He said, it is to open up and
let me in
When I come knocking at your door.

I love you, he said;
I have created YOU to love. Now go and love your brother;
Do this for me, your Father up above.

I know YOUR love’s inadequate,
And without my power it’s something you can’t do.
So I’ve sent my Holy Spirit To live inside of you.

With my light and love in you,
You have a power like none on earth.
When you believed, my Spirit filled you.
It was then, I gave you a brand new birth.

So go love one another!
And when you step out in love you’ll find
That I am with you always Until the very end of time.

Trying something new

I don’t know that I have joked much in this blog, but during the day I am joking constantly.  One person has said that joking is an adult defense mechanism.  Another person told me after I didn’t accept a compliment, “Deflect, deflect, deflect.”  I am going to try and cut down on the jokes for a while.  And if compliments come my way I will accept them.  Perhaps I can have a whole conversation with someone without joking?
