How can you get to hell faster?
When does Jesus want MORE from you?
What will never be “good enough” with Jesus?
“For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 5:20
If your righteousness does not surpass the guys who studied the law and worked day and night to observe every single little bitty word of law- you will not make it!
WOW- I am so screwed I might as well throw up my hands and pray for Holy Fire from God to devour me now!
Except for one thing- Jesus!
Here is this simple verse that I feel very confident did not make Jesus any friends in the religious community of the day we see the key reason for His very existence. Isn’t it interesting that for the next 28 verses or the rest of Matthew 5 Jesus goes on to talk about “gouge out your eye” and “cut of your hand” if they cause you to Not be holy?
Have you been to any “Eye Gouging Services” lately? Anyone have a minister that keeps a sword sharpened for the “Cut off your Hand and Go to Heaven” time of fellowship?
JESUS wants more from you than you’re doing!! You can Never do enough!!
If you want to get to hell fast here it is- keep trying! Yep in two words- keep trying to do righteous and you will be in hell every second as hell is any place He isn’t and He isn’t in your sacrifice! If He was- He committed suicide on the cross.
If you want to find Peace – True Peace with Love that Nothing can separate you from the answer these 7 simple questions and start a journey called Grace:
Here is a meditation for you this day. Find a time and a place where you probably won’t be disturbed and bring a box of tissues. Take several deep breathes and let the stress go out a little more every time you exhale. As you do this get a picture of you broken from effort and exhausted lying on the side of the road unable to continue and see Jesus with His nail scarred hands come along, bend down and pick you up, as He does you wrap your arms around His neck and He says, “Welcome Home Son, I Love You!” As you see this and get this picture:
Breathe in and say:
“Jesus take me”
Breathe out and say:
“Make me whole”
Practice this until you have a thankful heart with the knowledge and understanding that only He can “do” and all He ask is that you “be” His child!
Don’t Worry- Be Grace-Full!!
