    Jesus came to Earth for you. What is most important about Jesus’ mission to Earth is that it directly affects your life now and forever. Jesus came to restore your relationship to God the Father. The death of Jesus on the cross is the most important event in history that affects your life directly. If you choose to receive Jesus’ body and blood as a sacrifice for your sins, and are willing to give Him your life, then you receive His life. The teachings of Jesus are very important because His Words judge us.

    Everything about Jesus mission on Earth is about saving us from our sins. The name Jesus means “Jehovah saves”, the word salvation means to rescue. Jesus’ name describes His mission and purpose of coming to Earth. Jesus gives us the Way, the Truth, and Life. Jesus gave us the way to have unity with God. His sacrifice made it possible for us to live in God and for God to live in us.

    In the scriptures below when Jesus talks about bringing division, even in families, He is talking about the cost of loving Him. The greatest commandment is to love God with all of your being. Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself. ’On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 22:37 – 40 There are times when loving God more than people causes division between us and other people. Ultimately Jesus came to seek and to save that which is lost, even His enemies and your enemies. Jesus did not come to take sides He came to draw people to His side. This is the kind of division Jesus talks about but which will ultimately bring true unity and peace between the Creator and His creation.

    "There are times when loving God more than people causes division between us and other people. "

    Something of an understatement. The bible offers examples of fearing and loving God (not an easy act to balance I imagine) more than the livelihood of your own son, and is still today cause for celebration among many people (the blowing of the ram's horn).

    I wonder whether you agree with this? That is, putting your love and faith in God before your bonds of family.

      "The bible offers examples of fearing and loving God (not an easy act to balance I imagine)"

      Interesting thing is that the "fear" that the Bible talks about in most cases when it comes to God is not terror, or being afraid of someone. Respect would be a better term for it according to the more educated students of the Bible.

      I find it very hard to love someone that I'm afraid of. Yes, God can take you out at anytime, but if you are on his good side, you do not have to worry about his anger.

      Of course, there is a healthy fear that will keep you from crossing someone. However, as long as you do everything you can to stay on one's good side, you do not have to worry about paying the price.

        I hope my kids aren't constantly worrying about staying on my good side lest I show my anger towards them and "take them out".

        I hope my kids just get on enjoying their lives, having a laugh, and doing what I ask because we love each other.

          It can't be because the rainbow in the background is missing red, orange and indigo.

            lol Well, you and I may know that, but that won't worry the OP too much. smile
            A bit of magic and a goddunnit covers any discrepancies in reality.

            Religionists move the goal posts so often the playing field is riddled with holes where the posts used to be.
