But remember, God expects us to open our heart, for without doing so we cannot receive the Holy Spirit who must give us the "green light" to approach Jesus and through Him God the Father. And besides, He also expects us to love our fellow man, friend and foe alike, so if we remain cold and unforgiving we can never expect to join our Maker for eternity.
And there is another thing we must ponder. How do you think Jesus feels about the way we treat Him? After all, He came to earth to live and die for us so that we could gain real life and this makes him the best friend that any of us could possibly have. Don't you think we hurt Him deeply when we ignore Him or don't follow His way? Of course we do.
On this week's Sunday Morning Coming Down we'll discuss these things. We'll try and focus on what is important and right for us to do and the wonderful benefits we will receive therefrom. I hope you'll join us. The show goes live at 6:30 pm Eastern tonight and then will be available 24/7 thereafter. Here's the link:
