Hello, Altered Stories Family,
For a long time, I have been enthralled with the series, Gold Rush. It’s about men who risk it all to go gold mining and deal with the various trials that come with this new venture. It got me to thinking, these men are putting it all on the line, for gold, but what are we willing to put on the line? Our Lord said that a man can gain the world but lose his own soul. He also said that the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. As believers, we are called to reap a harvest and we are called to draw people to God’s Kingdom.
In the Gold Rush series, they must fight personal conflicts, and equipment break downs to see that gold at the end of the week. We have three things we must fight, the World, the Flesh, and the evil one to see someone come to Christ at the end of the day. While I love this series, I love seeing someone come into the Kingdom even more.
If you are reading this, maybe you have been chasing your own form of gold?
Let me speak to you for a moment. Putting your work into making something of yourself isn’t a bad thing, however, we are called for something more. The truth is, that God wants to see us in his Kingdom. He says that his arm is not so short that it cannot save. No matter what you do, no matter how many riches or how much success you get you won’t be rich in Christ at the end of the day.
So how do you start to reap that harvest?
It’s as simple as A B C.
Admit you are a Sinner, in need of God’s grace and Mercy. You cannot earn his forgiveness on your own.
Believe in Christ’s death on the cross, resurrection on the third day, and that he will return in bodily form to set up his 1000 reign.
Confess Him as Lord and savior, for the Bible says that if you believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord and that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
That’s it. If you do this, you are in God’s family, and can start the journey of learning more about the Lord you’ve given your life to.
Finally, I ask if you are a believer to take the time to learn how you can reap the harvest that God has for you to reap. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
Until the next time I write.
