Who Is Your Master? (by Jerry 10/14/14)

The Temptation of Christ Ary Scheffer, 1854

Who Is Your Master?

There is really no way to say it in a nice way and maybe there shouldn’t be. But if you don’t believe that Jesus died for you and your sins then you belong to the devil or Satan as he is known.

I used to think it wasn’t fair for me to have to serve God or Satan. Why couldn’t I just do what I wanted to do and still go to heaven? I didn’t want to go to church and hang around a bunch of “holy rollers.” But I also didn’t want to go to hell and burn for eternity.

It wasn’t until I was at the end of my rope for what seemed like the 1000th time that I was willing to turn to God and let Him be my Master. What I’m trying to get people to understand is that it’s a much, much better life serving God rather than doing my own thing and just staying in one mess after another and discovering that people that you thought were your friends couldn’t really care less when trouble comes your way.

Serving God and getting to know Him better is better than any party or “good time” that I thought that I was having. I also discovered that the “holy rollers” are way better people than I thought that they were. They are just normal, everyday people that have decided to make God their Master.

Every person in this world struggles with sin but that doesn’t keep Jesus from loving you. It is a personal relationship.

Don’t ever think that you have done too much or been too bad for God to love you. He know everything about you, me and everyone else on this planet – how bad and depraved we are. Yet, He chose to come and die for us so that we can spend eternity with Him. All we have to do is accept it and be willing to let Him help us overcome our sins, fears, and worries – our hurts, habits and hang-ups.

We can’t do it on our own. We as humans need Jesus.

Don’t look at it like I gotta quit doing this and or this. When you make Jesus your Master you are opening up a whole new world that is way better than our old way of life.

When you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, give Jesus a try. You’ll see that He is what He says that He is:

Jesus is The Way, The Truth and The Life!

This blog is for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus and His love and how faith in Him plays out in real life application. Hello, we are Jerry and Angela and we are two fools for Christ. We have decided to make our lives totally surrendered to Jesus in response to His love and His gift of salvation. We are in our early 40′s and we have two children together and [Angela has] an older daughter that is now an adult. We have been married to each other for going on ten years. We surrendered our lives to the Lord together in 2010 and have been growing in that relationship with Him and each other since that time. We both accepted salvation and made professions of faith earlier in our lives, but did not make Him Lord and Savior until 2010. At that time we realized that trying to walk in our own strength and our own ways was useless and empty and had led us to another rock bottom experience. We humbly turned our lives over to Jesus and have been seeking Him with all that we are ever since. That does not mean that we have become perfect. That does not mean that we have not sinned again. That does not mean that we have not had trouble or trials or storms since that time. What this means is that we are growing, we are learning, we are becoming more loving and compassionate and forgiving. We want to share our faith with our readers. We want to share our growth process and transformation with you. We wish to encourage you and lift you.
