hi everyone, so today i read matthew chapter 19.
v17. "Why do you ask me about that is good? Jesus replied, There is only one who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.
As a read through this passage, it reminds me of keeping your promises. So also meaning to follow and obey the Lords Commandments. Not just the ten commandments but what ever the Lord tells you. And in verse 18 and 19 kind of demonstrates of the Lords commandments. All of these commandments that the Lord has give us is all very important. But when the Lord mentioned the word Love, i think Love is the most important. Love is the key to everything. If you have Love, that is the key to go up to the kingdom of heaven. It says that we should Love the one and only God. If we do not Love him, than we cannot go into heaven. Love is to everything you desire. The Lord says to love not just him, but also one another. He says this because the Lord has loved us first, so to give thanks, we must also love him and also love one another. So lets love God, but also love one another.
v21. If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come follow me.
I also found this passage heart full of love. Reading through this verse reminded me of Jesus Christ dying on the cross for our sins. He did this to poor out his love to the people all around the world. Jesus sacrficed everything just for us, and we should do the same, but differently. The question is, are you willing to poor out all your possessions to the poor and the week. I think we all are. Like look where God has put every single one of us here today. The Lord has given us this great oppertunity to go on missions. To spread the word of the gospel, to heal the sick and to brings glory in them. So be proud of your self. God has sent you here for a reason, and you are not here by mistake. Every time pastor sam would pray, he would always say "we are here for a reason, that god has not created us by mistake". And that is so true. Rememeber your there for a reason.
