Called, beloved and kept

called, beloved and keptThis kind of confidence we have in our walk with Jesus is there for a reason.

We have our walk with Jesus to share with those we meet – but there is always more.

This past week I tried sharing another level in our relationship with Jesus that my youth group were blown away by.  They thought they were okay just the way the were and had experienced everything they could experience with God.

“Doing” our walk with Jesus has been the conversation for a long time with them and now I am introducing multiplication in mercy, peace and love from God.

Why is this so important – is it possible to reject, to put aside to lose the gift of eternal life?

Being in a position to contend for the mustard seed of faith that was delivered to us, we meet face to face with those who act like followers of Christ and are not.  They pervert the grace of God into their own gain and deny Jesus Christ.

Those who have walked away from God  are served with the same examples given to us.  The people in Egypt who did not believe, the angels cast away from God’s presence and who are in eternal chains, the people of Sodom and Gomorrah who vested in unnatural lust – all have provided us with and example by being punished with eternal fire.

We need to understand our call as being a follower of Jesus, we need to know that in the fight for our love He sends His angels to sustain us, and we need to know that God rebukes the evil one from our life.
