Many times we think we have chosen Jesus Christ as our God. The reality is Jesus Christ has chosen us before the creation of world.
“According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: ” Eph 1:4
Jesus Christ has only one purpose in our life is to give us “eternal life”, which man lost in the eden garden. But after Adam fell, God’s hope didn’t fail, Jesus Christ came in human form set a perfect example, and died on cross and resurrected to open a way to eternal life.
Tit 1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;
Let God give us Grace to attain that eternal life.
John 19:30-” When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.”
In most of times when God delays to answer our prayer we say ”why God has not done ?” That to me. Our request may be good job, house, good health, business, education, many things. There can be two reasons why God delays to answer 1. That is not God’s will 2. God is testing our faith on Him. But one thing is true most of time what we ask God belongs to this world, all are temporal things. We often forget eternity and worry about present temporary things. In the above verses Jesus Christ said “it is finished” shows that He have finished everything, He shed till His last drop of blood on cross for our sake. He have finished everything not only for our temporary life but for Eternal Life. “First seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, then rest shall be added unto you” . Let us not say God have not done that or this, instead pray fervently and praise Him always so that we can receive His blessing.
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” -Romans 6:23
Since all of mankind are born in sin and have sinned, none of us is worthy to inherit eternal life. Eternal life given to us is God’s gift through Jesus Christ. Let us humble and pray to God and receive Grace to enter heaven..
