Le Sauveur est Entre

Quand j’étais adolescent à la maison, j’aidais mon père dans son travail, avec le bois et l’exploitation forestière. Une grande famille a toujours eu besoin de finances. Donc, je travaillerais pour lui pour rien, et je vivais à la maison. Papa était le genre d’homme qui n’était jamais allé à l’école, qui ne savait ni lire ni écrire, et qui était le type d’un mec qui se couchait tôt et se levait tôt, et de bonne humeur le matin. Mais il était très sensible et pouvait lire dans mes pensées. J’avais réussi à m’acheter une vieille voiture, une vieille Dodge, et je partais après souper avec, ramassais quelques-uns de mes amis, et nous galivions toute la nuit, et nous parlions, rions, faisions toutes sortes de choses, chasser les filles. La prochaine chose que tu sais, c’est que je rentrerais tôt le matin, les yeux pleins de larmes, et papa était déjà en train de préparer et de prendre le petit-déjeuner pour lui et moi, et prêt pour le travail. Bien que j’étais endormi et que je n’avais pas dormi de la nuit, que j’avais les yeux rouges et que j’étais fatigué, il n’y avait pas d’excuse pour lui; nous sommes allés au travail. Je me souviens d’une fois, et à différentes occasions, nous allions dans la voiture et papa me disait: «Je vous aime vraiment, vous êtes un travailleur acharné et vous aider avec la famille, mais je ne comprends pas pourquoi vous pouvez ne fais pas bien! »Bien sûr, à cet âge-là, c’était d’une oreille et de l’autre. Mais de nombreuses années plus tard, cette question résonnait dans mes oreilles. Je ne pouvais pas comprendre pourquoi j’étais si impuissant à faire quelque chose de bien, dans mon cœur, c’est-à-dire. Puis plus tard dans la vie, quand Jésus frappa à la porte de mon cœur et que je le laissai entrer, mon point de vue, mes manières et mes idées pour le faire «bien» ou «mal» apparurent. Et c’est parce que lorsque nous faisons cela, le Saint-Esprit, qui est une personne, et il est tout puissant, peut commencer à fonctionner dans votre vie. Il y a beaucoup de dictons pour cela, comme Que votre lumière brille, Il a allumé votre bougie, quoi que ce soit, mais l’interrupteur d’éclairage a été allumé! Et le désir dans mon cœur était de faire les choses correctement. Une nouvelle vie est entrée en moi et cela a simplement changé le désir de mon cœur, la façon de faire les choses et d’approcher la vie. Quel jour c’était pour moi! Quand j’ai vu l’amour qu’il avait pour moi, alors cela m’a donné la capacité et le pouvoir d’aimer la vie et les autres comme je ne pouvais pas le faire seul.

 

Maintenant 65 ans plus tard, cette question posée par mon père est toujours résolue quand je lis cette Ecriture: Dans Tite 3, 3-7: “3 A un moment nous étions aussi fous, désobéissants, trompés et asservis par toutes sortes de passions et de plaisirs. Nous vivions dans la malice et l’envie, étant détestés et nous haïssant les uns les autres. 4 Mais quand la bonté et l’amour de Dieu notre Sauveur sont apparus, 5 il nous a sauvés, non pas à cause des choses justes que nous avions faites, mais à cause de sa miséricorde. Il nous a sauvés par le lavage de la renaissance et du renouveau par l’Esprit Saint, 6 qu’il a généreusement répandu sur nous par Jésus Christ notre Sauveur, 7 afin que, justifiés par sa grâce, nous devenions des héritiers ayant l’espérance de la vie éternelle “

 

Aujourd’hui, alors qu’il frappe à la porte de votre cœur, ma prière est que la bénédiction et la vie éternelle de Jésus viendront à vous par la puissance du Saint-Esprit, comme vous le recevez aujourd’hui. Que Dieu vous bénisse, Il vous aime, nous vous aimons,

The Saviour Came In

When I was a teenager at home, I used to help my dad in his work, with lumber and logging. A big family always had need of finances. So I would work for him for nothing, and I lived at home. Dad was the kind of a man who had never gone to school, couldn’t read or write, and was the type of a guy who went to bed early and got up early, and in a good mood in the morning. But he was very sensitive and could read my mind. I had managed to buy an old car, an old Dodge, and I would leave after supper with it, pick up some of my friends, and we would be gallivanting all night, and we would talk, laugh, do all kinds of things, chase girls. Next thing you know I would come home early in the morning, bleary-eyed, and Dad was up already making and eating breakfast for himself and me, and ready for work. Although I was sleepy, and hadn’t slept a wink all night, and had red eyes, and was tired, there was no excuse for him; we went to work. I remember one time, and on different occasions, we would go in the car and Dad would say to me, “I really like you, you are a hard worker and you help out with the family, But – I cannot understand why you can’t do it right!” Of course, at that age, it was in one ear and out the other. But many years later, that question would ring in my ears. I couldn’t figure it out why I was so powerless to do anything right, in my heart, that is. Then later on in life, when Jesus knocked at the door of my heart and I let Him in, my whole view and ways and ideas of doing it “right” or “wrong” came into view. And that is because when we do this, the Holy Spirit, who is a Person, and He is all powerful, can begin to operate in your life. There are many sayings for that, like Let your light shine, He lit your candle, whatever it is, but the Light switch was turned on! And the desire in my heart was to do things right. A new life came into me and it just changed the desire of my heart, the way to do things and to approach life. What a day that was for me! When I saw the love that He had for me, then it gave me the ability and the power to love life and others as I couldn’t do on my own.
Now 65 years later, that question my dad asked is still answered when I read this scripture: In Titus 3, 3-7: “3 At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.”
Today as He knocks at the door of your heart, my prayer is that the blessing and eternal life of Jesus would come to you through the power of the Holy Spirit, as you receive Him today. God bless you, He loves you, we love you,

Jesus, Our Friend

In the 1700’s in England, during a time of economic depression, a single mom and her 20-year-old only son were really struggling to make a living. So the son heard about America and said to his mom, “Mom I am going to go down there and find some riches to help you out.” When this son was in America, he and his mom used to write letters back and forth to each other. He could not find any work of any kind. It was a new country and it was depressed as well. He was lonely and wanted to go back home. Then in one of the letters the mom wrote to him, she said she had found strength in Jesus. And in the letter, she wrote to him, “What a friend I have in Jesus, all my sins and griefs to bear, and what a privilege it is to carry everything to him in prayer.” She said she was very happy now and not lonely anymore! The burden had been lifted. It changed her whole heart. When the son got the letter from his mom, he read that and was humming these words under his breath as he walked around looking for work, and out of it all, God touched him! He became a believer in Jesus! And what happened is he put those words to a song! And it has been sung for years and still is sung around the world today, “What a Friend I Have in Jesus”. He saw the light, the guy!
Jesus knocked at the door of his heart and he let Him in, and discovered he had a Friend forever.
Jesus said after His resurrection and He left for heaven, to His disciples, that He would send another, the Person of the Holy Spirit, which is part of it all when you accept Jesus. Jesus said, “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth… But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.(John 14: 16,18). He will come and dwell in you. The Holy Spirit is the one who carries us through life. Part of His work in our lives is He is our guide, He empowers us, He reveals things to us, and He is our teacher, our advocate, our counsellor, and is our comforter.
Believe it today, enjoy it, may God bless you!
