YOU ARE SAVED! Jesus and His followers were planning on visiting a village on the way to Jerusalem but the people in the village refused to welcome them because of manmade religious reasons. This made James and John so angry they wanted to call fire down to destroy the people like Elijah had done. Jesus responded that He “DID NOT COME TO DESTROY HUMAN LIVES, BUT TO SAVE THEM” [Lk 9:52-56 GN].   Over the last two thousand years many, who claim to follow Jesus, killed people who were non-believers and believers who did not agree with their manmade doctrines. Some would then brag that their manmade teachings must be from God because other believers agree, ignoring the fact that they killed those who disagreed. Of course there is no way to kill all non-believers, which is not what Jesus encourages when He teaches, “LOVE YOUR ENEMIES” [Mt 5:44].  However rejecting Jesus has consequences as Jesus says, “HE WHO REJECTS ME … THE WORD THAT I HAVE SPOKEN WILL JUDGE HIM IN THE LAST DAY”  [Jn 12:48 NKJ]. Be encouraged to welcome Jesus into your life.  Has Jesus saved you? Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
