This does not mean that we do not qualify for eternal life but we do not want to live a life without Jesus by our side.

God says to you and to me this morning: ‘I will take care of the justice issue; you need to be free from bitterness.” Ironically, withholding forgiveness usually inflicts more pain on the one who needs to forgive than on the one who needs to be forgiven. Notice how the parable
Our prayers become prayers of thanks breathed quietly in the privacy of our own perception of the divine. We metaphysically interpret the Bible writings because we are created as spiritual beings indwelling a physical body, producing a lifetime. We interpret because we are the curiosity of God discovering who we are. We are far more than our finite intellectual mind can comprehend.

Everybody’s judgment only made me love Christ more. It made me feel a true connection with Him and what He went through to save me and give me eternal life. Every and any rude comment my religion and my love for Jesus only strengthens my faith even more. Jesus ignited a fire within me that I didn’t even know existed. He opened my eyes to the true beauty of what it means to be a Christian, and opened doors to many beautiful friends and opportunities I would have never received if I did not love
