|Appearance Of False Christs
Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris
How many false Christ are in your life? How readily are we to give our salvation in certain circumstance to someone other then God or Jesus. From retrospect a fire fighter is a time of christ if he pulls you out of burning building. The karate class that kept a student in need of discipline from becoming a child of the streets. Sports and other after school activities have saved a many young people that might of landed up on drugs if their hope had not changed for a better life. Yet man may glorify what saved them out of the pit of despair these types of Christís are only a reflection of what Jesus does spiritually.
The thing about life is what keeps you out of being in the gutter might be your salvation. One might see the drugs on college campus, but in truth the ability to say no is still there. The need not to belong to the drugs, the alcohol and other things that are destructive to oneís life. Yet no one thinks of those things that are positive as being lures to salvation of human man made kind. There many types of salvation in life, but only one eternal life. Being active in doing the things of God, by helping a family member, neighbor, or church are productive things in life that often bring salvation to another. Nothing wrong with those things because they are good, yet without learning to help another one never learns to love.
The short time salvation might be can food, or rescue from danger, but these are only short time salvation. Many organizations due chariety work, but not all organizations carry the love of Christ within the walls of their organization. The crime organizations often help people in a pinch giving money in times of trouble to people that can not help themselves, only to use them later for their own purpose. It said to see groups use a person to help them only to use a person for their own purpose because they can not pay them back. Many false christ in the world that leads to personís destruction.
It is the love of God that allows redemption for now and eternity. God does save us to use us for his glory, but in truth it not for evil intention but to pass his love along. The drug lord gives you money, but uses you later to sell drugs when you canít pay or perhaps for sexual object. Yet some say that only a way of life and everything cost something. Yet salvation through Christ Jesus is free. Salvation cost nothing, yet God does expect us to live a life pleasing to Him. A life built on good things and not built on evil. What God desires is not for us to use his salvation only as a get out of fire pit, but to use it to share the hope, but what share needs to be Jesus, not just the salvation of the good works. For works can and well not save a person for eternity. Yet our works are judged by God as being good or evil. Those things that are evil will be done away with and those things that are good will remain. Remain in the New Jerusalem, caring and working in a perfect utopia society.
A utopia a perfect society built on the word of God through faith in Christ Jesus, the Savior of our soul. Those in the eternal lake of fire only living in a society of evil that never ends. A society where the flames lick no only heels, but the entire body. On earth evil only bites at the ankles of our feet, trying to cause us to loose our salvation. If Christ is your savior glorify him today, laying on a foundation built on Jesus, and on to good works for his glory and honor.
Dear Heavenly Father, let us receive good works of faith, and not the works that lead to death and destruction. Enable us to build on the salvation of Jesus through belief and then good works. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
