BEING CLOSE TO JESUS

Jesus wants to be close to you and he wants you to be close to him. Jesus said; “Behold I stand at the door and knock .If any man hear my voice and opens the door I will come into him and will sup with him and he with me.”(Revelation 3:20). Jesus wants to live inside of your heart. The Bible also says, “And because ye are sons God hath sent forth the spirit of his Son into your hearts crying Abba Father.” (Galatians 4:6.).“Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.” (James 4:7).Jesus tells us,“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”(John:15:4,5). This is so true we can’t thrive or even survive spiritually without his love and strength and life giving power. Beloved this can only come from being close to him and right with the Lord and walking with him and talking with him every day. If a branch gets cut off from the vine it withers and dries up. Beloved, just like you need air,water,and food to survive, you need the life giving spiritual nourishment from the Lord, by being right with him, and close to Jesus. Otherwise we are just walking around spiritually starved, and even eventually spiritually dead, like zombies. That is why Jesus said, “Let the dead bury the dead”, because some people are already spiritually dead. Don’t let this happen to you. Stay in the word and prayer, and close to Jesus for your spiritual strength and life. In fact Our Heavenly Father wants to make us conform to his dear son . So we can all be like Jesus walking around. Wow, wouldn’t that be nice, and wouldn’t that be a paradise if everyone would just yield to, and receive Jesus? Then it would be like having a little bit of Heaven right here on earth wouldn’t it? This is the way it is in Heaven. Why wait, when you can experience a little bit of Heaven right now? If everyone would just love Jesus and be like him. Then there would be peace on earth at last, and people would actually care about others and be kind and loving and forgiving, and merciful as we ourselves want mercy. “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.”(Matthew 7:12). They do things alot different in Heaven than the way people do things on earth.You can get closer to Jesus by reading the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.”The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite (crushed) spirit.”  (Psalm 34:18). Exercise daily, “WALK WITH THE LORD”.

 Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, 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 Saviour. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
