What do you Have to Lose??

Updated: Jan 10

I sometimes wonder why people resist accepting the gift of salvation. My question to you is, what do you have to lose? Please tell me, because I would like to know. If Jesus is real, and eternity is real what else matters? Why wouldn't you say, yes?

Let me tell you a little about my journey with Jesus. I grew up in a Pentecostal environment. For some, this type of upbringing, of rules, and strictness may not look appealing. I am grateful however that I was able to grow up that way. I have to be honest though, while living as a Pentecost, I did not like the external rules. I feel blessed however to have had the chance to learn God's word and to give my life to Christ. I do believe with every fiber of my being that if I did not have the background of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, I would not be writing this post. I would be dead.

Growing up I saw my mom and other family members praying, fasting, reading the Bible, and at someone point I was in the children's choir. Sorry, but I am and was a terrible singer! As I was growing up into a young women, I was expected to fast, and pray. It was a way of life. After I got older and on my own, I rebelled. I went the opposite direction of what I was taught.

I have had a great share of heartaches, abuse, and trauma. Like most people, I was trying to fill a void with so many things. I first, felt like God had abandoned me. I mean, how can He let so many horrible things happy to me and others. Where is He? In the midst of despair, I started to look for validation else where. I partied, I drank every other weeks when I did not have my children with me, it was my time to waste my life away. I reached my lowest point and that is when I looked up.

I started to remember the promises I made to God during the Genocide. I promised that if we survived, we would serve God. We did survive, but I did not keep my end of the promise. I would want to go to church, but something would come up. The pattern was consistent, to the point that now I believe it was satanic opposition. I am so grateful for my brother who did not give up on me. Every Sunday I got a call from him telling me and encouraging me to go to church. He was not aware of my lifestyle at that time, but God used him to get me back to church.

I am not saying that church is where Jesus is only. My brother knew that I was alone, and a community of people could help. For you it may be different. This is why I am opening the discussion. I want to talk to you about the Good Shepherd. While in rebellion, I thought God had left me. Now I know that He never did. I had to choose Him and invite Him in so that he can really change my life. There are so many miracles Jesus did in my life even while I was in rebellion. Although, I did not understand then, I now know for sure that He never left me and He never forsaken me.

What do you have to lose? If anything you will gain a new family. A Heavenly family and Heavenly resources. Did you know that Christians have access to Heavenly resources, including angels, the Holy Spirit, Heavenly riches and blessings. God has made us promises that are too many to list, but they are in the Bible. Once I made a decision to walk from darkness to light, I met with demonic opposition. Yes, demons are real. The Bible talk about them and their chief the devil. Hell was made for those evil things, but they have managed to deceive humanity and now people are going to hell today. Do not become one of them. Accept Jesus today so that you too can be adopted in the Family of God.

Who will you choose today? God or the devil? Eternity or eternal separation and torment? life or death? You have to choose. Hopefully sooner rather than later. .

The Good Shepherd awaits your YES!!
