What A Life

What A Life

Scripture:- John 15:1-14
Topic:- What A Life

It happened on a visit, several mango seasons ago, to the city of Jos, Nigeria.

A walk around town was indeed a journey through a mango grove.

The trees were heavy-laden with fruits, ripe and unripe.

Underneath the trees were fallen fruits, some of them half-eaten by bats and other birds.

You didn’t have to jump, much less, climb, to pluck a fruit.

Even the trees within fenced houses were drooping and dropping fruits on the road beyond the fences.

The guards did not care if you took a basket-full.

I walked on. Then I saw an amazing thing!

At the street corner, a few meters down the road stood a Mango Seller!

It was as absurd as it was comic; but then, an even more amazing thing happened.

As I watched, someone walked up to the Mango Seller and bought some mangoes!

What a thing!! As I gazed on, trying to make sense of this strange occurrence, a car pulled up by the Mango Seller and also bought some mangoes. “In the abundance of water, the fool is thirsty.”

Just then the Spirit spoke to my spirit saying, “Likewise, my goodness is made available abundantly in Christ.

That which you desire and yet lack is that which you do not see that I have freely given to you.”

We pay tears, we pay tolls. We pay pain and the grief of Medical cure for sickness, which is sometimes more
grievous than its endurance.

We pay money, and rather than pray to enjoy fellowship with God, we pay prayer and fasting for that which is free.

But there is a place in Christ where there are no toils and payments.

It is a higher life. What a Life!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
