No man is an island. We all have an effect on each other. We are
supposed to be Ambassadors of the kingdom of Heaven, and
representing our King of Kings Jesus Christ! It is so important to choose wisely your friends and the people that you are associated with.They will definitely have a lasting affect on you.
“Can a man take fire into his bosom and not be burned ?”
(Proverbs 6:27). You should associate with people who love the
Lord and are well grounded in his Word and like to witness to
others about Jesus. Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.” (John 10:11-15). “Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.” (John 15: 14-15). “Feed the flock of God which is among you, Taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.” (1Peter 5:2-4). Jesus told Peter three times; “Lovest thou me, feed my sheep.” (John 21:17). Beloved these verses need no expanation. I’m sure that the Lord will speak to each of us through these scriptures.
Say this prayer 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. I believed 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.
