Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. Matthew 16:24
What are your expectations of Jesus? May sound like a strange question but many people who are being mislead by false doctrine find themselves quickly falling away from their faith because their expectations of Jesus were always wrong to begin with.
Prosperity gospel has become a big seller among people searching for God, but its false doctrine. In fact its totally the opposite of what Jesus taught us what to expect. Jesus never said you were going to get a good job, or a big house, or flawless health if you follow him. What Jesus actually told us we can expect trials, tribulations, persecution, to be mocked and hated, some people will even die for their faith in Christ.
So why should people truly come to Jesus? Simple because we all have a terminal disease called sin and the only cure is Jesus Christ. When people finally come to terms that they need a Savior, then they finally find the true reason to come to Jesus.
You may not get a big promotion or a fancy house, but your sins will be washed away and on judgment day you will be pardoned for your sins. This means you can have eternal life in the Kingdom of God. There is no greater gift than that and Jesus gave this to us on the cross. Now repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand in Jesus Name Amen
