2 Corinthians 5:14-17 ” For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: and that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which for them, and rose again. Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, through we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away: behold, all things are become new”.
1 Corinthians 15:20-22 ” But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept. For since by man come death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive”.
Let us believe and recognize that Jesus Christ took our place on the cross in Calvary because God loves us. Let us believe and recognize that in order for us to receive eternal salvation we must believe that Christ Jesus died for us and rose from the dead on the third day. Let us believe and recognize that God gave his only Son, Jesus Christ, that who believes in him, should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life”.) Let us believe and recognize that it is our sin that separates us from God. Let us recognize that we must repent of our sins and turn away from wickedness to receive the Lord God and all that he has for us. Let us believe and recognize that God has a divine plan for each and every one of us and he knows our name. Let us believe and recognize that God hates our sins but he loves the sinner and we must too love the sinner as Jesus loves us. Let us believe and recognize that we should not think more of ourselves because we know that by ourselves we can do nothing. Let us believe and recognize that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Let us believe and recognize that Jesus is the only way, truth and life and that no one can get to the Father but by him (John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”.)
Let also understand that we must surrender all to God, our hearts, our minds, our soul and our body. That we must share to others the true Gospel of Jesus Christ and that there is no other Gospel that brings the Good News of Christ Jesus. Let us also be tender hearted and meek and kind to one another as God would want us to be but to tell the truth who are living in darkness, in sin and in lies and to point them to the right direction: to Jesus Christ our only Messiah. Most of all let us love God with all our hearts, minds, soul and strength and to show and give that love to others who do not know Christ and unto our fellow believers of Christ Jesus.
Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this word: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”.
Please, if you do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ, surrender your heart to him. God loves you so much that he sent himself in the flesh to die for our sins. He gave himself over like a lamb to a slaughter. He did what he did so we wouldn’t have to because he loves us that much and his love is limitless. Take it from someone who knows that she is a sinner in need of a savior and that without him she would be lost. You don’t have to be lost little one, you do not have to be lost but found and found in Jesus Christ, our Lord! Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved”.
Confess your sins to God, believe in your heart in what Jesus Christ has done for you. That he died for you and he rose on the third day for you. Then ask him into your heart and to be the Lord of your life, forever. In Jesus name, amen! If you prayed that prayer whether you believed in God but never knew Christ Jesus as your personal savior, you just entered into the family of God! Praise God! The angels in heaven are rejoicing!
Those who are hurting, depressed, confused or in distress please know that God loves you dearly and he is closer to you than you think. You can cast all your burden, your cares of this life unto God for he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you”. Matthew 11:28-30 “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. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light”. Believe and you shall receive.
God bless you and God loves you!
