I wanna be ready...

So I am NOT a big fan of fire and brimstone preaching I am more on the side of helping people discovering Gods love and falling deeply in love with their Father-God. I want to see people coming to Him with a heart that is not bitter but full of gratitude for what He has done for us through His Son Jesus.

With that said: I read a scripture today that moved me:
23 "If anyone tries to flag you down, calling out, 'Here's the Messiah!' or points, 'There he is!' don't fall for it. 24 Fake Messiahs and lying preachers are going to pop up everywhere. Their impressive credentials and dazzling performances will pull the wool over the eyes of even those who ought to know better.

This was a reminder to me that we live in a world where the pure gospel is being hidden and adjusted to fit what makes us humans more comfortable or looks more appealing rather then what the gospel really is: A call to lay down your life as Christ laid down His life. A call to love others as yourself and to love the Lord God with all our hearts and all our strength and all our minds. This is what the true God desires. The false Gods and preachers of this world will say " Do what you want as long as that's how your were born" or "Look out for self above all else" or "Give tons of money to the church and then God will love you." God is not out for your money or your fame or even your prefrences HE desires that His glory and Love would be seen on the earth and that His creation would worship Him and live in His presence doing the good He created each one of us to do. The bible talks about Jesus returning for His children, and to be ready. I want to be ready when Jesus comes and be found doing the good He has called me to and being true to the pure gospel of Jesus.
