A relationship with Jesus

Here is something I read on Facebook.

A relationship with Jesus

by Emily Thomes

“I told the staff today that I have a deeply personal relationship with God that I do not proselytize about, but I do, and I have been working that relationship tremendously, which I do anyway, but I’ve been focused on it intensely for the past couple of weeks..” – Rush Limbaugh

My heart breaks for Mr. Limbaugh and those like him that believe one can have a sincere relationship with Jesus while ignoring the primary responsibility He left to His people. It was Jesus who said, “If you love me you will keep my commandments (John 14:15).

What did Jesus command?

“Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” (Mark 16:15)

The Christian faith is one accompanied not by a one time “sinner’s prayer” and occasional private prayers. It’s one that leads to a life fully devoted to Jesus and His mission— the saving of His sheep. Our lives aren’t ones that can blend in with a culture like ours. If they do, we have real reason for concern about the sincerity of our faith. Many will be deceived and believe that they are His until they hear from Jesus Himself that they were deceived all along.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” (Matthew‬ ‭7:21-27)

For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. (Exodus 20:11)
