My Journey

Personal observations which I have made over the years to apply Bible reading in my life.
Matthew 11:5 “The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the poor have the gospel preached to them.”
Matthew 11:19 “The Son of Man came eating and drinking , and they say, ‘Look, a glutton and a wine bibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!'”
Observation
Jesus performed miracles which helped people to recognize Him as Lord and Savior.  Many people rejected Jesus and refused to believe in Him.
Application to my life
As a Christian believer I understand that much of the world will reject Jesus as Lord and Savior.  Much of the world will reject the idea that being a follower of Jesus is the only way to know and have a right relationship with their Creator: God the Father.  The only way for people to be reconciled to God for all eternity and not lost forever is by submitting to Jesus and the Word of God which Jesus speaks of in the Bible.
I believe this happens today because that is what happened between Jesus and many people when he preached on earth.  Jesus understood that it would happen also.  Yet He still lived as an example to others and told them the truth about who God is and what people needed to do to be reconciled with Him.
For my personal role I desire to pray, my personal connection to use to communicate with Jesus.  Whenever I do this I can learn what His will is for me.  By having this regular practice I can closely follow His will.  What is His specific will?  That in every possible way for me to do it, I am to set an example for others, both believers and non believers, of how God wants me to live.  And I am to tell the truth about Jesus to anyone who listens, regardless of whether or not they accept it.
My prayer
Lord, and Heavenly Father, I thank you for your saving grace, I submit myself to your wisdom and place myself where I can follow the direction of the Holy Spirit in the decisions that I make and the practices that I do as I live and cultivate relationships with other believers and people whom I would share the good news with, Amen.
