Sacrificial devotion

Why do some people preoccupy the world banking on death?

“Sacrificial devotion” is what comes to mind.

God did not bring death.  Adam and Eve did because Eve was tempted.  The serpent brought death.

Then why does the industry preoccupy with banking on death.  People fear death.  They fear the suffering.  They want to cure suffering.  They want to end suffering.  So, some sacrifice themselves to the preoccupation of death.

However, is this truly what God wants?  Yes, Jesus sacrificed himself.  BUT, only to save the world.  To save humanity, he did not preoccupy himself with death.  He succumbed to praying that this cup be taken away from Him, BUT, he quickly reverted and accepted the will of His Father.

My point is, “Don’t bank on death!”. . .”Imitate Jesus and look for the good!”

This is not easy.  But the good is that I believe, “I want to reach HEAVEN!”

Don’t bank on death!  Bank on Heaven!

Helpful contemplation is on John 15 (recommended by my pastor) verse 1-7

Jesus the True Vine

15 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinegrower. 2 He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes[a] to make it bear more fruit. 3 You have already been cleansed[b] by the word that I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. 5 I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing. 6 Whoever does not abide in me is thrown away like a branch and withers; such branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. 7 If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask for whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

    Hi there to all, for the reason that I am genuinely keen of reading this website’s post to be updated on a regular basis. It carries pleasant stuff.

    There are certainly quite a lot of particulars like that to take into consideration. That may be a great level to deliver up. I offer the thoughts above as basic inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you convey up where an important thing might be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged around things like that, however I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a good game. Both boys and girls feel the impression of just a second?s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

    When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service? Kudos!

      Lady, please do not post links from your website. And, maybe. . .perhaps you are receiving notifications as a prompt from God to come back and read other blogs?

      How does your job benefit your neighbor? That is one you might be interested in reading.
