“That whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:15
What you believe determines your life’s worth. If you believe in God, then you are not limited by man, because God is the one who created all things and everything that exists. 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 the way of what to believe and to serve a living God. 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 for our sins.
Ephesians 1:7-8 says, “In Jesus, 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.”
We are not worthy of eternal life, but we have been made perfect by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ to enjoy the abundant and eternal life. Therefore, believing in Christ, Jesus will make you free from sin and death. It will also make you free from the evil desires of your heart.
Believing in Jesus Christ is what changed the status of a thief on the right hand in time of crucifixion from hellfire to life. The only way out of hellfire is through repentance and faith in Christ Jesus Christ. I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior. What do you believe? Because John 1:12 says, “But as many as received him, to them gave he the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.”
1. Thank God for the privileged of the day.
2. Oh, Lord! Awaken my hunger to believe in the Word of God, fill my temple again till I want no more.
3. I cut off every force pulling me back from growing spiritually in Jesus’ name.
