Pursue Jesus, and you will find the path, that leads to Life.
Just as Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, by twisting the word of God, so shall he try to do to us, who follow Jesus. We must speak Gods truth to each other, and not worldly wisdom, which will lead us down a path of destruction. What will you choose, Life or Death? Choose Life! This world is not our eternal home.
God wants you to speak to him, with a heart that seeks him, and wants to know him more. He does not want some ritualist repitition. He also wants you to know him. The Bible tells us all that we need to know about him. Meditate on his word and tell him what’s on your heart and the Holy Spirit will guide and teach you.
When you give your life to Jesus, you are acknowledging, that you cannot earn you way to heaven, by following a bunch of rules (The Law). Your faith in Jesus, takes away any condemnation from the penalty of the Law.

I have been crucified with Christ. See notes on Ro 6:2–6 . When a person trusts in Christ for salvation, he spiritually participates with the Lord in His crucifixion and His victory over sin and death. no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. The believer’s old self is dead ( see note on Eph 4:22 ), having been crucified with Christ ( Ro 6:3 , 5 ). The believer’s new self has the privilege of the indwelling Christ empowering him and living through him ( see notes on Ro 8:9 , 10 ). gave Himself up for me. The manifestation of Christ’s love for the believer through His sacrificial death on the cross ( Jn 10:17 , 18 ; Ro 5:6–8 ; Eph 5:25–30 ).
Do you want to know the God of the universe? You can find him, through his son, Jesus. Look with your heart, not necessarily with your eyes. The Bible will guide you to him. May your journey be Blessed.
Faith comes from understanding the gospel.
Taken from John MacArthur study bible
Paul’s main point in this series of rhetorical questions is that a clear presentation of the gospel message must precede true saving faith. True faith always has content—the revealed Word of God. Salvation comes to those who hear and believe the facts of the gospel.
The good news is not only a gracious offer but a command to believe and repent ( 1:4–6 ; 2:8 ; 6:17 ; Ac 6:7 ; 2Th 1:7 , 8 ; Heb 5:9 ).
One day, whether in Heaven, on Earth, or under the Earth,. Everyone will bow down at office he feet of Jesus, and he will rule forever, over all all created things.
Seek the Lord, in his word, and he will guide your ways.
Judgement was coming to the people, if they didn’t change their ways. Self-righteous doesn’t work. A changed heart, brings forth what is necessary. The fruit in the picture, is what flows from it. It is God, who must change the heart.
