““Also, God’s kingdom is like a net that was put into the lake. The net caught many different kinds of fish. It was full, so the fishermen pulled it to the shore. They sat down and put all the good fish in baskets. Then they threw away the bad fish. It will be the same at the end of time. The angels will come and separate the evil people from the godly people. They will throw the evil people into the place of fire. There the people will cry and grind their teeth with pain.” Then Jesus asked his followers, “Do you understand all these things?” They said, “Yes, we understand.” Then Jesus said to the followers, “So every teacher of the law who has learned about God’s kingdom has some new things to teach. He is like the owner of a house. He has new things and old things saved in that house. And he brings out the new with the old.””
Matthew 13:47-52 ERV
What kind of fish are you? What pile of fish will you be put into when the net is pulled to shore? This was yesterdays sermon.
Everybody is born into this world a sinner. Everybody has a choice. Everybody has the power to change. Everybody is loved by Christ no matter who you are, or what you’ve done.
Everybody dies. Not every one makes it to Heaven.
We all have our struggles. There will be some struggles that may seem bigger than others. The difference is how we deal with these struggles. Just because I do this blog with my partner doesn’t mean my life is perfecto. Doesn’t mean I’m a holy person. Lol No way. It just means I’m trying to be a better person. Means I’m trying to distance the way I was from the person I want to become. And that is someone trying to get right with God so he can reveal his purpose for me.
Too many people think they’re better than others because their sin is ‘smaller’ than the other persons. All sins are the same in Gods eyes, and God knows and sees everything before it’s even done. So don’t worry about what other people think about you. Just try better yourself everyday, bit by bit so that when we are pulled to shore, we are in the good pile.
God is never too far away. He’s just one prayer away.
Have a good week friends, something to think about during your week.
