Who am I and where am I going?

“I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by Me.” (John 14:6).

Belief in Jesus Christ as the only way to eternity, the triune God as the embodiment of truth and repentance of my sins before my heavenly Father is my confession of faith it places me in the Family of God.

Repentance of my sins?

This requires me to see myself as separated from God because of who I am and what my life has been up to the point of repentance.  It requires me to comprehend/diagnose my spirit man. not just emotionally, but within the deep recesses of my soul that I am:

  1. Sinful – my only cure is Jesus
  2. Guilty of breaking all of God’s laws and should receive the punishment which is – eternal separation from God – death – to be dead to Him eternally.
  3. In need of redemption: to be freed from the will and desire to live as I choose. Jesus is that redeemer. Christ died for me on the cross. He is my redeemer, in other words, He died so I would not have to.  After accepting Jesus Christ as my Savior, my Redeemer, my God something happens to me.
  4. Now I have been washed in the blood of Jesus Christ. He calls me free.

“You will know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32).

But free from what?

  1. Free from the condemnation of the law of God that called me guilty, judged, and imprisoned by sin.
  2. Free from the imprisonment that sin placed on my life.
  3. Free from being separated from God eternally.
  4. Free from eternal death.
  5. Freedom from fear – I can trust God to be my protector at all times and in all circumstances. Nothing will ever happen to me that He does not know about and cannot fix!
  6. Free to love my neighbors.
  7. Free from societal morays that constrict how I see my “neighbor.”
  8. Free from the political boundaries of this world that try to confine me to love only people from my locale or culture.  Why? Because in Christ every living human being is my brother, sister, or at the Bible says, “neighbor.”  The freedom to love as God loves is the most outrageous experience that I experienced.
  9. Free from the clutches of hate. This world is permeated by hate and that comes only from the devil.
  10. Free from worry – because God is my provider.

Alright, so what if I am free? This type of freedom frees your mind, your heart, and your soul to love in a way that is not humanly possible without being a child of God who is filled with the Holy Spirit. No social activist, no politician, or political party, or act of congress can legislate this type of freedom. It comes only from being a part of the Family of God.

Where am I going – not that I am so free and so loved?

First of all, I am asking my Heavenly Father to send me out to share this freedom news with my neighbors. To tell them how they can be free from sin too.  Secondly, I know that when I close my eyes I will be living with the eternal Family of God where God dwells. I will bot be separated from Him eternally. I will not be going to hades/hell.  Call it what you may, living eternally in a place where there is no peace is not what I want for me, my children, my friends, or my neighbors.

“Who hath saved [me] and called [me] with a holy calling, not according to [my] works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given [me] in Christ Jesus before the world began.” (2 Timothy 1:9).

Imagine that. He knew me before I was even thought of by my parents.  But more importantly, He had a plan of redemption for me before sin entered this world. He loved me so that He sent His one and only Son to die for my sins. So, do you want to know where you are going? Do you want to be free?  Watch this video and contact us right here on this page.
