So during church today we took tests. And these tests told us what our spiritual gifts are. Guess what I got?
My three perfect scores were Teacher, Prophet, and Knowledge.
Jesus blogger! :)
And I also have a motto that relates. I was reading my bible and found it...
2 Timothy 1:8 'Do not be ashamed to testify about our lord.'(shortened)
I could talk about Jesus all day. I love him soo much! And if I know that someone doesn't know him, I HAVE to talk to them.
Now I do have something I'd like to share with you.
1 John 4: 19-20
'We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, 'I love God', yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.'
The first time I read that, I knew I had to fix any broken relationships. Because it's completely true.
Read it one more time.
Doesn't this show the wrongs of friends, siblings, or anyone else fighting over something silly and never making up? Wouldn't this just send God the message that if you had the slightest doubt in him, maybe even one planted by Satan, you would turn away?
This is why God has the 'love your enemies' speech be so important. He wants you to love all. He loves you so much. He wants you to experience it, to love him back. If you love him, I want you to simply say, right now, 'God, I love you'.
Because really, how can we love what we cannot see without loving what we can see first? How can we love the maker without loving the creation?
I want others to feel this joy, this joy I feel. If you don't know how to get Jesus in your heart but want to just do these four simple things.
Tell God that you know you're a sinner. Tell him you know Jesus died on the cross for you, you know he washed away your sins. Tell him you accept his gift of eternal life. Then listen to him, feel his love!
Jesus is the best friend everyone has always wanted. And he wants you.
