So many people feel like they have to figure out who they are… and God is like I made you let me tell you!!!!
Jesus asked Peter the question “do you love me?” -
Guess what you are not created to do what you want.
If Jesus asked you “do you love me” how would you answer?
Some of you may answer “No I do not love you”
That is why after porn or sex before marriage doesn't feel right
After long sessions of being watching Netflix, youtube, or instagram, or whatever that you feel like you wasted time

WHY YOU SHOULD LOVE GOD.

After drinking people feel gross
Yes in the moment it seems like the best but then after
This is why most people who can afford to have a life complete with those things are depressed and often commit suicide.
Guess what you were not created to
watch Netflix...
have sex before marriage
to get drunk
to watch porn.
You are not created to be rich and others are not created to be poor.
Jesus tests your love
Are you really happy?
If you love yourselves you will live for yourself
If you love football you will live for football.
If you love a guy you will want to live with that guy.
If you love yourselves you will live for yourself.
Problem: people say they love God but live for themself
Ephesians 2:10 NIrV
God made us. He created us to belong to Christ Jesus. Now we can do good things. Long ago God prepared them for us to do.
Guess what you are not created to do what you want.
But have you noticed that
You would think life is better doing it your way but the reality is....
see how great other peoples lives are
it is depressing too see how great the lives of others are on instagram.
You don’t see anyone full of joy after a long youtube session.
you feel disgusting after drinking
people just
You feel ashemed after watvhing porn
you feel gross after watching porn, or sleeping around.
there is no sense of joy after watching a bunch of youtube videos.
No instead when you feel separate from others.
Which teaches me that while social media is meant to draw us close all it does it separate us from reality
It seems like everything I do for myself is not really that satisfying.
Then when you realize it… it is like we are trapped in our own desires.

God’s Love

We are his family
Ephesians 1:5 NLT
God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.
We are accepted

Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory.
He makes you complete.

For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
Unified with the Lord

knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.

Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.

1 Corinthians 6:19–20 NKJV
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
1 John 3:1–2 NKJV
Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
1 Corinthians
1 John
Colossians 3:1–3 NKJV
If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

What you love is what you live!

If you love football you will live for football.
If you love a guy you will want to live with that guy.
If you love yourselves you will live for yourself.
Problem: people say they love God but live for themself

How evil is it to compromise God?

Jesus talks about compromisers in
Revelation 2:12–17 NLT
“Write this letter to the angel of the church in Pergamum. This is the message from the one with the sharp two-edged sword: “I know that you live in the city where Satan has his throne, yet you have remained loyal to me. You refused to deny me even when Antipas, my faithful witness, was martyred among you there in Satan’s city. “But I have a few complaints against you. You tolerate some among you whose teaching is like that of Balaam, who showed Balak how to trip up the people of Israel. He taught them to sin by eating food offered to idols and by committing sexual sin. In a similar way, you have some Nicolaitans among you who follow the same teaching. Repent of your sin, or I will come to you suddenly and fight against them with the sword of my mouth. “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches. To everyone who is victorious I will give some of the manna that has been hidden away in heaven. And I will give to each one a white stone, and on the stone will be engraved a new name that no one understands except the one who receives it.
How evil is it that some people are like thanks for bleeding on the cross for me but I rather have sex than love you.
To be like God thanks for bleeding on the cross for me but I rather have sex than love you.
God thanks for dedicating so much time for me but your not as important as my friends..
Jesus said () “if you love me keep my commands”
God you just want a relationship with me but I rather have a relationship
John 15:6 NKJV
If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.
God you just want a relationship with me but I rather have a relationship
People want God and to do what ever they want.
You spit on the face of me, the church, & Jesus when you act like you love God but you live like you want.
