Today, I write about what I believe in, what leads my life and directs my ways; I write about Christ Jesus.
John 3:16 says For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son. That whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.
2 Corinthians 5:15 says He included everyone in His death so that everyone could also be included in His life. A far better life than people ever lived on their own. I believe in God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit; this is my faith and I would love to share this part of me with you today.
The Bible has been written of us. Hebrews 10:7, I came in the volume of the book, it is written of me, to do thy will, O Lord.
Call in the name of Christ Jesus and be saved
It is written in the Bible in Romans 10: 13 for, “Everyone who calls in the name of the Lord will be saved”. 14 How, then can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” .
We are the ones to share this Good News. God loves us and He sent His son to die for all of us, on our behalf so that we may be forgiven.
2 Corinthians 5:14 one man died for everyone. That puts everyone in the boat. He died for each and every human being so that every one of us may be forgiven and attain righteousness only He can give us. Nothing we can do makes us righteous.
Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. 9 not by works , so that no-one can boast.
Salvation is for everyone
This salvation is for everyone, for us to know Him and make Him known. That is the mandate we have on earth, to spread God’s knowledge. Nothing can compare to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3: 7 but whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8 What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things, I consider them rubbish that I may gain Christ, 9 and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ- the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith. 10 I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings becoming like him in His death, and so somehow to attain to the resurrection from the dead.
Knowing God surpasses all other things because in Him we have all things. Matthew 6. 28-33. Everyday life is already catered for by Him. He has given us dominion over all things; we are His representatives here on earth.
This year my main goal was to know God which I have. God is love, he loves us dearly.
1 John 3:16, we know what real love is because Jesus gave up His life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. All of us are loved by Him.
Matthew 5:45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven, He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
Do not be afraid
He made everything, John 1:3 Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. He has already shielded us.
Gen 15:1 after this, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision: “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward. ” He has already provided for us, Psalms 90 , he knows us.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. He walks with us, takes care of us, Psalms 23, he will never leave us nor forsake us.
Hebrews 13: 5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you: never will I forsake you.”. He is Jesus.
Knowing all these we know God and we know love.
Ephesians 2:4 but because of His great love for us, God who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive In Christ even when we were dead in transgressions- it is by grace you have been saved. We know peace that surpasses all human understanding.
Philippians 4:7 and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. We know love.
1 John 4:16, and so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love, whoever lives in love lives in god and God in him.
Christ hears us
We know faith Hebrews 11, we know hope, we know ourselves and know life in full, John 10:10, the thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy; I have come so that they may have life, and have it to the full. We know forgiveness of all our sins, we know righteousness and we know grace. God is good; He only has good things for us. We know His word, which guides us.
Psalms 119:105, Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
1 John 5:14 this is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 and if we know that He hears us- whatever we ask- we know that we have what we asked of Him.
We are like him
We are like Him. 2 Corinthians 3:18, and we who with unveiled faces all reflects the Lord’s Glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes form the Lord, who is the Spirit. He is in us and we are in Him, that way we grow.
John 15: 5, I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in Him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. We grow by reading and doing His word. Psalms 1. Joshua 1: 7, 8. Job 22:21-25. That is His plan for us and His work for us is to let others know Christ so that they may also share in this.
