You desire a closer union with Me. I want to grant you that union. To be one with Me in your heart and soul will be truly wonderful. You may strive all you want for this union but the true beauty in your heart and soul is a gift from Me. It can never be attained on your own.
There are those who have spent their lives doing good works trying to attain not only this “goodness” but eternal life, as well. My heart goes out to reach them constantly, asking them to receive the Holy Spirit, to receive Jesus Christ into their lives, and if they accept these gifts, eternal life, as well.
But many just go on their way in their effort to attain perfection through works. I am not in their souls. I am not in their hearts. This is a form of evil itself. The devil will even use good works to keep their eyes off Me.
Do not give up trying to help these souls, as their hearts are crying out for Me. They hope by doing good works they will fill the emptiness in their souls. But it will only be found in Me. Receipt of My gift will set them free to love and laugh and to reach out to others for the right reasons.
Come close and commune with Me. Embrace the gift of My Son Jesus Christ.
You and Me. Me and You.
“We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.”
Galatians 2:15-16 NKJV
