Would you like to be more loving, and kind, and more like Jesus? One thing I think that would help us all, is to realize that the way we treat the Lord and others is how the Lord will treat us. “For with the same measure that ye meet withal it shall be measured to you again.”(Luke 6:38b ).”whatsoever a man soweth the same shall he reap.”(Galatians 6:7b). “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you ,do ye even so unto them.”(Matthew 7:12a). Even if people don’t treat you right, go ahead and treat them right.” Be not overcome with evil, but over come evil with good.”(Romans 12:21).“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”( Matthew 5:44-48).So if you want the Lord to Love you and bless you and be kind to you. Then treat the Lord and others the same way you want the Lord and others to treat you. Jesus said; “THOU SHALT LOVE THE LORD THY GOD WITH ALL THY HEART, AND WITH ALL THY SOUL, AND WITH ALL THY MIND. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR AS THYSELF.”(Matthew 22:37-39).It’s like a boomerang, it will come back to you.I think if we are more mindful of this spiritual and scriptural truth, that it will help us in our daily encounters, and it will help us to be more careful and prayerful in the things we say and do.If we all would try and be more like Jesus we could have a little bit of Heaven right now in our hearts and lives. Wow, what a change that would make!!! Why wait until you get to heaven, when you can have a little bit of Heaven right now?
If you want to go to Heaven someday, sincerely pray this simple prayer:
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 Savior. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
