What is more important to you,
your life you lead today or the
day coming that does not end…
if this is what you’d so defend
or even think it could be true?
This is what Jesus died for
to prevent you from, separation…
separation from God Himself
so you could know for yourself-
to spare you the strife of chore.
As one is prone to think and do,
this is where the rubber hits the
road… this is to become our trial
where our lives then are the mile
we measure or respond untrue.
There can be no doubt God loves… for God loves us so much He would send His own Son to die for us, to bear the load of that which we could not do on our own (remove our own sins) so that we could know Him throughout eternity. To find yourself with Him is to find Him while you’re here… living now… and accept Jesus for who He really is- God Almighty. His rising past the grave is direction to this His truth… find Yourself in His presence now and know (for a fact) this is but a prelude to what will take place for all eternity. With Him now or without Him for eternity… which would you desire most? The choice has always been yours to make- so choose wisely!
In the world (today) there are two primary views of Jesus, the worst is to attempt to have Jesus conform to our desired view, a Jesus that is suited to our liking (to fulfill our demands and happiness and first)… or the real Jesus- the one that suffered on our behalf to remove our sins. Which Jesus do you know?

There are two major word groups: (1) inner volitional purposes or decisions (boule [boulhv]), mentally directed intention (boulema [bouvlhma]), and deliberated and free decision of the will (boulemai); (2) desire, wish, or will (thelo [qevlw]) and will or intention (thelema [qevlhma]). These two are used interchangeably for all the Old Testament notions we have observed. It is interesting that thelo [qevlw] outstrips boulomai [bouvlomai] in use (207 usages to 37). Freedom of decision in ways not directly related to God are evident throughout the New Testament. Joseph “did not want” (thelo [qevlw]) to expose Mary, so he had deliberated or, “had in mind” (boulomai [bouvlomai]), to divorce her. The passages from both word-groups pertaining to human volition underscore the biblical tradition that though God alone comprehends all the data, there is very little evidence for arbitrary and impersonal coercion of human wills. ( Luke 7:30 ,”rejected God’s purpose” 1 Cor 4:5 ). God’s will or desire is perfect, but it is large enough to incorporate and circumvent human will where necessary ( Acts 2:23 ).
