Accept Your New Life

“Again and again the Lord has sent you His servants, the prophets, but you have not listened or even paid attention. Each time the message was this: ‘Turn from the evil road you are traveling and from the evil things you are doing. Only then will I let you live in this land that the Lord gave to you and your ancestors forever. ~ Jeremiah 25:4-5

Often times we expect God to bring us into promised land while we are still living in sin. We expect God to promote us to the next level, whether it’s in life, spiritually, emotionally, in our job, when we aren’t following Him. How can we expect God to continuously bless us, when we can’t even love Him? Jesus said, “if you love me, you will keep my commands.” And yet we follow our own desires, our own way, and get mad at God when we don’t succeed. When we aren’t entering our promised land, or we can’t stay in our promised land.

Our promised land is where Jesus is, and where Jesus is there can be no sin. So how can we expect to be with Jesus while we replace Him with false gods/idols by following our own lustful/selfish desires? We expect to treat Jesus however we want and for Him to sit there and take it, while still blessing us. How many of us would allow someone to disrespect us, cheat on us, spit in our face and still give them all of our time, affection, love, money, etc.? None of us would, so why do we expect Jesus to?

Jesus isn’t trying to control us, He’s trying to protect us from ourselves. He doesn’t withhold good from us, He’s trying to protect us from the death of sin. Jesus is trying to cleanse us and make us whole. He’s trying to give us life and new more abundant life, so why don’t we accept it?

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Accept Your New Life.
