How Bad do you Want Jesus? Where are Your Passions?

Is this similar to your passion for Him?  Do you want Jesus this bad?

Have you been knocking and seeking with all your might and strength in desperation?Have you been reading His Word and crying in prayer desperate for His Love?  Do you wake up asking God this; “how can I be more like You today Jesus!!?”

There is hope.  The path is narrow, but there is hope.  Faith is an amazing gift of love and we should respond in continuing repentance and growing in love towards Christ and others (none of us has all of the good fruits perfectly and repentance goes at different rates for different people; but we should be growing at some rate!)

The church has been polluted by preaching according to what people want to hear. The path is narrow and there are sadly many people feeling secure who aren’t really on solid ground.

Always be willing to examine yourself for fruits.  Galatians gives us a great model:

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.  For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”

2 Corinthians 13:5

“Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!”

How bad do you want Jesus Christ?  How desperate are you for Him?  What have you given up in your life for Him lately?

Operation SAVE OUR CHILDREN!!!

James 1:27 -“ Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”

First of all, I am in LOVE with Jesus Christ.  He is all I live for; and what I have been praying for is a burden for the lost and suffering, and He has answered my prayers.

I joke a lot, and I have written stories from my past in humor before I was a Christian and my struggles (many I still struggle with).  But just look at whats going on in the World.  Children are being forced to do horrible things.  Women are being tricked into job opportunities just to be forced into prostitution slavery (which about 10% of their business is from Americans, that figure is in Thailand I believe).  And I know in Peru “street boys” do horrible sex acts daily for bowls of soup.

I am so ashamed at myself for complaining about my tiny “problems” sitting in an air conditioned house with 3 square meals, internet access, and cable tv.  Yea I might not have many friends, but just LOOK AT THE CHILDREN WHO ARE BEING FORCED INTO SEX-TRAFFICKING!!!

I’m losing it right now.  All of my thoughts and emotions are on the Facebook page I made yesterday.  Please look it over and pray about donating even $5 paypal to help.  Most of us can think back and regret purchases like a pair of pants or other things, but I promise you that you will NEVER regret giving to causes like this.

You have the power to buy these children out of this.  With $20 you can feed a family.  With $35 you can feed a family and provide medical care and education.  And once these people are saved, you can help them be provided with the most important thing – THE GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST!!  They have no hope right now.  We have the power to save them and give them hope and a life.

I BEG YOU.  I BEG YOU.  They don’t have a voice.  We have to do something.
