I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"KEEP YOUR FOCUS ON JESUS" BY DAVID MCMILLEN
KEEP YOUR FOCUS ON JESUS
DO YOU KNOW WHY WE SHOULD NOT SIN? IT IS NOT SO WE CAN KEEP OUR SALVATION IF WE HAVE RECEIVED JESUS AS OUR SAVIOR. JESUS DIED FOR ALL SINS AND IF WE DO SIN WE JUST NEED TO ASK FORGIVENESS FOR THAT SIN AND THE FORGIVENESS THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN GIVEN WILL APPLY TO THE SIN. THIS WILL SHOW SATAN THAT WE ARE UNDER GOD'S PROTECTION AND WILL KEEP HIM FROM HAVING ACCESS TO OUR LIVES. HE WILL TAKE EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO DO THIS. HE DOES IT BY SETTING THINGS IN FRONT OF US THAT WILL TEMPT US TO SIN. FOR INSTANCE, HE WILL HAVE SOMEONE MAKE YOU MAD SO YOU WILL EITHER DO OR SAY SOMETHING YOU SHOULDN'T. I AM SURE YOU CAN THINK OF MANY WAYS HE HAS DONE THIS TO YOU. WE MUST STAY STRONG. EPHESIANS 6:10 SAYS "be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might." WE NEED TO PUT ON THE FULL ARMOUR OF GOD TO KEEP US STRONG AND PROTECTED.
ALSO, OUR BEING AS GOOD AS WE CAN WILL NOT BRING US INTO A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. JESUS DID THIS WHEN HE TOOK AWAY OUR SINS BECAUSE SIN KEPT US FROM GOING DIRECTLY TO GOD. HE NOW DEALS WITH US ACCORDING TO OUR FAITH IN JESUS. GOD SEES US AS HE SEES JESUS. WE ARE NOT ONLY GOING TO BE LIKE JESUS WHEN WE GET TO HEAVEN BUT WE ARE JUST LIKE HIM NOW IN OUR SPIRITS AND THAT IS WHAT GOD LOOKS AT. SEE WHAT 1ST JOHN 4:17 SAYS "Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world."
WE ALSO NEED TO KEEP STUDYING GOD'S WORD. THIS WILL KEEP US IN A CLOSE PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM AND OUR THOUGHTS UPON HIM.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
