Working your relationship

If you want to have eternal life and spend eternity with Jesus you need to make sure that your relationship with Him is right. You need to work on your relationship or else you will have no relationship. A successful relationship is very hard work, it means self-sacrifice, denying yourself, your own desires and doing what Jesus wants you to do. A successful relationship comes about when you do what pleases Him, not what pleases you, what pleases HIM. And He promised, “seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all the other things will be added unto you.” YOU FIRST NEED TO GET YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS RIGHT AND YOU MUST KEEP IT RIGHT. That is hard work. You must every day of your life, for the rest of your life, for eternity, you must work on that relationship and keep it right or else you will have no relationship.

Jesus said:”If you love Me, keep My commands! Do what I say,”and “if you keep My words, then I will reveal Myself to you.” You will get to know Him. You get to know Jesus when you seek Him with all your heart. His words are written in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. If you read those words you will know exactly what Jesus wants of us. HE WANTS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HOLINESS, TOTAL DEDICATION TO HIM. Repent and be baptized, live holy and He will give you the gift of the Holy Spirit, His own Spirit will come and dwell in you and you will live in constant relationship with Him, but you have got to work on that relationship. You have got to be tuned in, seeking, praying, you must choose Jesus above everything else. Rather than going after your own desires and your own ambitions you go after Jesus. It’s not easy but if you seek Him with all your heart you will find Him and YOU HAVE TO KEEP ON SEEKING HIM. Its easy to get distracted. It is sometimes much nicer to go and spend some time with friends rather than to pray. It is nicer to party, to go and go after the things of the flesh – those are the pleasures of this world, but you need to forfeit, give it up IF you want to be part of the Kingdom of Heaven.

It is not about sinning less. It is about a PERFECT RELATIONSHIP! Jesus must be perfectly satisfied with you and me. We must have His total approval and you can only have that if your relationship with Him is right. He rewards those who diligently seek Him. YOU HAVE TO SEEK HIM IN PRAYER. You have to wait on Him. If you wake up tonight, get up and pray. Spend time with Jesus, don’t go watch the TV. Don’t go do other things. If you want wisdom, ask of Jesus. Jesus must be your reality, every moment of your life. Jesus must be the center of your thoughts then He will add all the other things to you because He is Almighty! He loves you, He cares for you! But, do you care for Him? Do you care for your relationship with Him? Do you care to be pleasing to Him? If you do, SHOW IT. Seek Him with all your heart and you will find Him.

May Jesus bless you.
