You Can Understand it, But Can You Accept It

Many today want to accept the invitation of Jesus (Matthew 11:28-30), but when it really comes down to it, they want to do it on their terms. Just a casual read through the Bible tells us that God has never accepted man on his terms, it has always been on His (God’s) terms. Jesus Himself said, “if you love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15). Some have taken this to mean only the ones I like. Friends, let us remove the “I” syndrome and replace it with the attitude of I will do whatever you ask of me.

If you desire to accept the invitation of Jesus simply do what He commanded. “He that believes and is baptized will be saved” (Mark 16:16). It is as simple as that…then live your life in accordance to His will, always studying (2 Timothy 2:15), always submitting (James 4:7), never tiring (1 Corinthians 15:58)
