Christ brought a teaching and this teaching is simple. Simply give up your life and follow Christ, His Teaching. You can’t have both this world and God. This world is passing and those who want it, desire it, and seek it, will reap eternal death. There will be no favoritism or exception! But those who seek Heaven and give their life to God, will receive the gift of eternal Life. It’s simply a question of what you Truly want. To follow Christ, you need to start completely over and leave everything behind, your understanding, your past, your feelings, etc. You can’t patch your old self!
“Blessed are the PURE in heart: for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8
Only those with a pure heart shall see God! How do we intend to see God? How many people actually seek to have a pure heart? People seek all kinds of things, but no one seeks a clean heart UNLESS God starts showing you that your heart is not clean. If you begin to see that your heart is not clean and is not pure, that means God is showing you this. Without seeing who you really are, you will never see God! Without becoming needy, you will never seek to fill that need.
The days go by, the weeks, the months, the years.
And I can hear the clock is sharply ticking.
But in my heart, I feel that something’s missing,
I try to fill the void, to change my self.
I watch my words, control the thoughts, the fears.
They all consume my mind, my wishful thinking.
But in my core I sense that something’s missing.
Can anyone explain what’s wrong with me?
