Everybody knows what it feels like to fall
in love. Many times it makes your cheeks to glow on the wrong
moment- makes you unable to speak, sets your stomach and brains into
disorder, if this person in question happens to walk by and glances at
you. Married couples remember even in old age when they first met and
the story is told tens of times to children and grandchildren. So
something strange has to be in it.
Every human being needs love, a person is
withering without it. Even if a person were on the top, all the riches
and possibilities within his or her reach, without love everything feels
empty. You know immensely rich celebrities who finally, surrounded by
wealth, mess about with drunkenness and drugs, even commit suicide.
Who cares about a person when he or she
becomes ill and needs help? Who will visit him or her in the hospital?
Does not the one who most cares about this person? So it is wonderful to
find that one true love and join oneself to him/her: life is beautiful
and happy, until.. What is still missing?
When a person must face the facts he or she is awakened to think
questions of life more profoundly. If something happens to a close
relative, family member or the most beloved person. If you become
seriously ill or have to face the possibility of death, you realize that
in the life you are ultimately alone. When you have to be operated on
surgically: you wait for anaesthesia in a room full of strange people,
doctors and nurses. You realize how lonely you are and a thought crosses
your mind: if something happens and I do not wake up, where shall I go?
Where do I go from here and with whom? Alone, completely alone. So it
is, and you do not think about it, until you really are in that
situation, but if you still would try t think.
At a pinch we realize what is really valuable: not the external things,
but inner life. Those working in the mortuary have closed thousands of
eyes always wondering, why a person´s face is distorted into a fearful
expression, as the face is twisting into so-called death triangle,
whereas a believer´s face has a peaceful smile. Is there after all two
different places, where multitudes of people are flowing every second,
as their life ends? Yes, there are, my good friend, there are. If we do
not leave from here together with Jesus, we´ll go alone to the wicked
and horrible place, which has not been meant for any human being. Many
times you hear people say: "life is sheer hell", but you should know
that it is really that if you do not leave this world together with
Jesus. He only has the power to let people enter Heaven, because He has
bought all people for Himself when He died for all of us. I do not know
if you ever have examined that wonderful book called the Bible, but when
we read it we can find these secrets of life, as this: God always
demands a sacrifice for reconciliation from sins. Formerly animals were
sacrificed for reconciliation from sin. Then Jesus came to this earth
leaving His heavenly home for about 30 years. He was the only completely
pure sacrifice to redeem all people from their sins once and for all.
People do not need animal sacrifices any more, Jesus repaired what Adam
and Eve broke by disobeying God. If we in this life ask God for
forgiveness from our sins and accept Jesus, the Redeemer from our sins,
we have a great future! “The man who confesses his sins and
forsakes them, shall receive mercy so says the Word of God. When we
leave this world, we smile, because immediately when the spirit leaves
the body, it arises to Jesus into the Glory of Heaven. Or if life is
hard and you feel that you cannot make it, He is coming near you and
carrying you forward. That is life in Jesus: every day in His footsteps.
That is Love.
