As we all go about our days concerned about the things we achieve and posses its important for us to remember that without God the father who created all things through Jesus Christ his Son, none of this including our own lives would be possible. That alone means that we (collectively and individually) could never repay God for all the potential he has given us, in-spite of our narcissistic and sinful nature to both rebel and blame Him for all the problems we bring upon ourselves and the world. This is our core nature due to our fallen spirit which we inherited from the Garden of Eden. Regardless of the reasons why the fact remains that God made a narrow way back from spiritual death to spiritual rebirth, we are made right once again through his only Son Jesus Christ! A free off-road VIP path to salvation and reunification with God and all His creation for the few that are willing to see the truth get off the main highway to Hell that the world willfully takes jostling through heavy traffic of self-fulfillment, self-pride, self indigence, and self-gain toward eternal judgment.
As for me personally, it's difficult and almost unspeakable for me to express in words how wonderfully eye-opening and fulfilling walking with God has been compared to my old life without true meaning or purpose. When you chose to believe and allow God to change you, it is a wonderful epiphany and a continual process of transformation back into the spiritual image of God as originally intended which wont be complete until we are in His presence on the last day (coming soon). Something true believers look forward to but are lovingly burdened to remain here in order to save the lost by spreading the GOOD NEWS of salvation in the hopes that even 1 more person out of a 100 we come in contact with will see our light be willing to hear the truth, and by faith believe it and be transformed into a child of God.
Jesus Christ said: “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who "choose that way". But the gateway to eternal life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it. I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God. I am [Myself] the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on) Me, although he may die, yet he shall live; And whoever continues to live and believes in (has faith in, cleaves to, and relies on) Me shall never actually die at all.
God's coming judgment is based on this fact: God’s light has come into the world, but people love the darkness more than the light, for their actions are by nature evil. Therefore if any person is "born again" in Christ he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old previous spiritual condition has passed away. Behold, all things become new! I (Jesus Christ) have come that they may have life, and that they may have life more abundantly.
I am the Lord, and there is no other god. I create the light and make the darkness. I send good times and bad times. I, the Lord, am the one who does these things. He who believes in Jesus Christ (clings to, trusts in, relies in) is not judged (never comes up for judgment); for that believer there is no rejection, no condemnation, no damnation; but he who does not believe (cleave to, rely on, trust in Him) is judged already (he has already been convicted) because he has not believed in and trusted in the only begotten Son of God. (He will be condemned for refusing to let his trust rest in Christ's).
“Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!
