Recipe for life

Have you ever wondered how to live a fulfilling life? Well, here's the key recipe:
~Limitless amount of trust in Jesus Christ ("Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls.")
~Limitless amount of repentance ("Repent! For the kingdom of Heaven is at hand!")
~Limitless amount of prayer to God--not to a priest [Christ is our High Priest] ("Pray without ceasing")
~Limitless amount of gratitude ("In everything give thanks")
~ Limitless amount of compassion ("Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?")
~Never ending amount of love--true love ("Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends")
~Unfailing store of honesty ("Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.")
~Everlasting supply of forgiveness ("For if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your father in heaven forgive you")
~Endless hunger for the Bible and God's ways ("Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled")
~8 gallons of tears ("Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted")
~8 gallons of laughter ("A merry heart doeth good like a medicine")
~Endless store of joy ("The joy of the Lord is your strength")
Mix all of these together in a clay vessel (you) and allow the Lord to purify you in His oven of affliction. Let Jesus be the One to rule your heart and your life, and you will have joy and eternal life everlasting. If you try to do all this yourself without God's help, you'll end up burning forever in the oven of judgement, where the fire is not quenched and where the worm dieth not. It doesn't matter how old you are, or what you've done. Only... "repent therefore and be converted..." "Come now, and let us reason together...though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow, though they be as crimson, they shall be as wool."
