23.25: Matthew 18: Have You Wandered Away from the Truth? Jesus is Looking for YOU!

Pride, greed, vanity, lust of the flesh, these are just some of the 7 Deadly Sins that cause us to wander away from the truth. That church looks more fun. They have better music. The preacher is funny. Or, we listen to the wrong message that tempts us away from the truth and what is right.

In Matthew 18 we have Jesus telling the story of the Lost Sheep. In my post on John 10, I told the story of my being the shepherd for a group of tourists in Venezuela, who kept wandering off. Check it out.

If you have strayed from the truth, the Good News is that Jesus wants you back. Furthermore, He’ll keep pursuing you until you repent and come back to Him. You may not even recognize the signs. Let’s dig in….

Keep reading in my blog where there are links to dig deeper and watch the special music videos at the bottom….

Jesus said, “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.” ~ ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭3:22‬ ‭NLT‬‬ – This phrase is repeated 14 times in scripture. Kind of gives the idea that God wants us to pay attention.

If you want to reap all the benefits of salvation including the 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven then…

Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.

Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly…

“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and my life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. I surrender my whole life to you and I will follow you for the rest of my life. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

Jesus is coming back soon! Are you ready?
