If You Believe!
“Jesus replied, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?” John 11:40
What you believe determines who you are and whom you will become. If you believe in God, then you are not limited by humankind’s nature because God is the one who created all things and everything that exists. However, if you only trust in humanity like you, then you might end up being trapped by man’s power. This is why we must be careful whom we lean on.
We all sinned; we all fall short of God’s excellent standard. We deserve some punishment. Instead, God, the Father, sent His only Son into the world, that whosoever, believe Him (Christ) will be redeemed, saved, and enjoy the abundant life. Christ came for salvation, and he did live the sinless life because of you and me; he shows us how to believe and serve a living God.
John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
In Luke 23:41, “We deserve to die for our crimes, but this man hasn’t done anything wrong.” He died for our sins, taking upon himself the penalty that we deserve. He was buried and rose from the dead to let us know that we serve a living God.
Ephesians 1:7-8 says, “In Him, we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding.” If you believe in your spirit, that Christ alone is your Savior, declaring, Jesus is Lord, ” you can be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven. 1 John 5:12 says, “Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.”
1. Thank God, who gave you Christ, who takes away sin.
2. Every power that is intimidating my faith in Christ, Lord washes them away with the blood of Jesus.
3. Lord Jesus, I believe you as my Lord and Savior.
