Seriously, guys, I totally do not blame you for your aversion to making Jesus the king of your life. After 44 years on that path, I have concluded that Jesus is not safe.
You have found a life, with pleasures offered, and you have concluded that the journey from pleasure to pleasure is the best that you can do. You have also concluded that Jesus would expect you to give up those pleasures before you could ever come to Him.
Jesus hates sin. Sin is defined as anything that stands in the way of God’s will, and his will is for you to know him, and the one he has sent.
Sin is like a cancer, and, if left alone, will grow and consume the life that it inhabits.
Jesus is like a surgeon. He knows that if he doesn’t remove the cancer, it will destroy you.
But you do not have to give up your pleasures to come to Him. You can come just as you are. But, there is one condition.
You have to sign the consent form for him to remove the cancer.
Jesus is not safe.
There are times that you will scream in pain.
You will find yourself in most disturbing and uncomfortable situations.
Friends will leave you.
Your enemies will increase.
You will be asked to do impossible things.
I don’t blame you for turning away.
Jesus is dangerous.
BUT HE IS GOOD!
