How To Enter Into A C.I.P. With Jesus-Part 5

Greetings, Army of Youth! As you already know, a lot has happened over the past week with the novel Covid-19. In most cases of sickness, do you know what would mean more to the suffering ones in their recovery from sickness; more than the “best treatment” that can be given? It is to know Christ as a close, intimate, and personal Friend!

“… those who awake to the importance of living in obedience to God in this present evil world will be willing to separate from every wrong habit. Gratitude and love will fill their hearts. They know that Christ is their friend. In many cases the realization that they have such a friend means more to the suffering ones in their recovery from sickness than the best treatment that can be given.  {MH 224.2}


You Were Made For God

You have the joy of satisfying the heart of God by being the man, the woman, the boy, or the girl that He made you to be. By His precious blood, He will take your sins away, which only hinder the matter. By His Holy Spirit He will work in you His precious life, and give you the power to be the man you were meant to be, the woman you were created to be. Yes, He will. He will do it, and in so doing, you will fill a wonderful place in the heart of God.

When you see Jesus, you see Him from a little different angle than I do. You are to reflect what you see. And don’t worry if somebody else sees Him from a little different angle. Leave it to God. He will work it out. It will come out all right; no problem at all.

In a previous class, we discussed about a girl that was kidnapped down in Florida. A similar situation happened with a boy, down in Venezuela. He was kidnapped at 13 years old, and his father paid 900,000 dollars to get him back. Nearly a million dollars to get a boy back.

Do you think he was worth it? $900,000 for a thirteen-year-old boy? Do you know the ransom that was paid for you? The ransom of the life of Christ upon the cross. Dear student, were you worth it?

Wait a minute!  Does God know what you are worth? If He paid that much for you, did He get cheated? If you are not worth what He paid for you, did He make a bad bargain?

Have you ever bought something and went back to the store to return it, because you thought it wasn’t worth it? I remember going into a store and seeing a (normally expensive) hand mixer on clearance, for about $7. Oh, I certainly thought I got a deal. However, when I went back home to give it a whiz, the mixer gave me all kinds of problems. It was definitely not worth what I paid.

Oh, my friends,  Are you worth what Jesus paid for? He says you areDespite all of the problems that you and I give Him, He still considers us worth while. How come? To fill that place in His heart. Does He know what He needs? Why not let Him have what He paid such the price for? I can tell you, my dear friends, there is nobody in all this universe who would pay for you what He paid for you. There is nobody in all this universe, who needs you as bad as He needs you, that wants you as much as He wants you. Nobody, nobody in Heaven or earth or hell nobody that needs you and wants you the way He does.

And may I tell you, friends, oh, let me tell you this little secret; this big secret. This is the only way that you can be fully satisfied. Because, listen: The One that made you to fill a place in His heart that nobody but you can fill, made you with a place in your heart that nobody but He can fill. This thing works both ways. And just as He needs you to make Him happy, you need Him to make you happy.

The lungs were made for air, and nothing else can satisfy them. The stomach was made for food. Nothing else can satisfy it. There is a place in your heart that was made for Jesus, and nothing but this fellowship can satisfy that place in your heart.

There is a place in His heart which hungers for you, whether or not you know it. There is a place in your heart that hungers for Him. And when the two of you meet in that precious fellowship, oh, friends, then your heart finds what it was made for, and His heart finds the thing which you were made to fill and satisfy. This is the meaning of love. This is the meaning of Calvary.

Oh, let’s make Him happy by letting Him have what He paid such a great price for. What do you say, dear friends? Will you do it? Oh, will you do it?

Spend some time all alone with God say, “Oh, my Master, my Creator, my Friend, is this really true? Am I this important to You? With all those angels up there, would you have left all that? Did you leave all that just to get me? What do you see in me, anyway?” Ah, let Him begin to tell you, friends. It will take eternity to tell it, what you mean to Him. It is really true.

Did you ever have a wonderful dream at night and wake up; and when you were waking up, the dream was so good you almost hated to wake up? This is just like that, except for one thing. It isn’t a dream. It is true. That is right. And oh, thank God, it can be more and more, more and more and more.

You say, “How can I get into this?”

Just tell Him you want to. Tell Him if this is so, nothing else matters. Tell Him if this is so, you are glad and willing to give Him everything. Tell Him you are willing to be shaped up so you fit for what you were really made for. Tell Him you are willing to make the changes in your life that will please Him, because that will be your real self. Tell Him you want to make Him happy. And just you telling Him that will make Him happy and glad the One who gave His life because He wanted you for His friend.

    Hi, MOL Family! Bro. K here, unfortunately we are in a troubling time. Pestilence is in the land. Now more than ever we need a close intimate personal relationship with Jesus, if we want to get through this time of crisis. Developing a conversation with God is hard due to a lack in faith. Yet, there are many things of this world we depend upon, that we trust our lives to. Why not Jesus, I hope for us all we have that faith that was once delivered unto the saints.

    Until our next meeting…
    :) Enjoy this day the lord has made
