Take a good hard look at your life, I know that this message has made me take a good look at mine and caused me to ask the question what am I seeking after most in my life?? Is it success, is it fortune and fame, is it to have my name well known, OR is it truly to KNOW JESUS and the power of the CROSS AND TO SHARE THIS MESSAGE WITH A LOST AND DYING WORLD!?!?!? I know this one thing, I am in love with Jesus and I CRAVE Him daily!! I cannot make it not one day without Him and I decided at 19 years old that my life was His and not my own any longer! See I tried the doing things my own way and realized it didn't work too well, I just tended to mess things up pretty bad and I still try to handle things on my own at times and it's in those times I realize yet again that I need Him and to rely upon Him again! He has my life in His hands, Jeremiah 29:11 says, "For I know the plans I have for you", says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."
All the days of my life are recorded in His book it says in Psalm 139!! Why would I not earnestly seek a God like this who has my best at hand!! The things of this world are just temporary and just offer a only satisfy a temporary fix and there are so many who give in to those temporary solutions, but JESUS is the eternal solution!! He is the fix that causes you to never thirst again!! John 4:14
C- Seek the Lord while you can find Him. Call on Him now while He is near. Isaiah 55:6
R- Don't you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God. James 4:4
A- So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls. James 1:21
V- I once thought these things were valuable, but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done. Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For His sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage so that I could gain Christ and become one with Him. Philippians 3:7-9
E- Matthew 19:16-22- In this story a rich man asks Jesus what he must do to possess eternal life and Jesus tells him to keep the commandments, the rich man goes on to ask which ones and Jesus lists a few and the man says he has done that, but what else must he do and then Jesus goes on to say to go and sell all of your possessions and to give away the money to the poor and to come and follow Him, well the moral of the story is the poor man goes away sad because he could not give up his possessions to follow Jesus. So my question to you today would be what are you craving so hard after today that is keeping you from Craving after the King of kings and the Lord of lords? Are you willing to hold onto this world so much that you are willing to lose your own soul? The one true Savior of the world, the one who knows everything you have ever done can take it all to where you will have no more shame and no more guilt!! That is who Jesus is and He is calling out to you today and there is NOTHING in this world that is worth holding onto more than JESUS!!! GIVE HIM ALL THAT YOU ARE TODAY!!! CRAVE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Romans 10:9-10 says, If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, then you will be saved! For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.
God bless you, if you need prayer today or anytime please don't hesitate to message me or contact me. And if you asked Jesus into your life today, then I would love to share in the joy with you. But most importantly, don't be ashamed, tell someone and get into a church so you can get the encouragement you need and fall in love with this amazing Savior, JESUS!!
