A mother cannot have a child without experiencing the pain of childbirth.
A student cannot learn without the effort of studying.
An athlete cannot win a marathon without training every day for it.
A marriage can’t remain without faithfulness and sacrifices for one another.
It is impossible to achieve something important without making effort.
Likewise, it is impossible to have a life with God whilst living for worldly pleasures.
And as the bible says, it is impossible to belong to the Lord Jesus without the seal of the Holy Spirit.
“Now if anyone does not have The Spirit of Christ, he is not His.” Romans 8:9
God wants to bless you.
He wants to bless your family.
He wants to fulfill His promises in your life.
He wants to call you his child.
And above all, God wants to save your soul.
He wants you to belong to Him. And for that to be possible, all you need to do is leave the old life behind, obey His Word, and seek (meaning pursue and desire more than anything) the Holy Spirit.
Just as you cannot make an omelet without breaking eggs, you cannot have a life with God without deciding to leave the old life behind.
May the God of the Bible bless you,
Bishop Joshua Fonseca
