“And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” (II Timothy 2:2). “Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.”(Matthew 18:3b). “as newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:”(I Peter 2:2). If you want to learn anything you have to be teachable, which is humbling. If you think you know better and you can’t back it up with facts, and scriptures you need to be quiet, and humble, and learn, and listen so you can grow in knowledge and grow spiritually. You could miss out on a real blessing and a learning experience. Sometimes it’s better to just humbly be quiet and listen even if you think you know better, because you might actually learn something new that you didn’t even know before. “Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.” (Proverbs 17:18). Someone once told me, “I would agree with you, but then we would both be wrong.” What arrogance, especially when the person who said that was wrong and unscriptural in some of his beliefs and teachings which he could not back up with scriptures. So be TEACHABLE, be HUMBLE, be SUBMISSIVE, so you can receive a blessing. Amen? “Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.” (Hebrews 13:17). “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” (Amos 3:3). “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”(James 4:7-10).
If you want to go to Heaven someday, sincerely pray this simple prayer:
Dear Jesus Christ, I want to know you and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Savior. I believe that you are the Only Begotten Son of God and you died on the cross for my sins, and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
