Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this? She said to Him, Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world. John 11:25-27 NKJV
Do you believe Jesus’ words? Do you believe Jesus is who He claims to be? Are you convinced He is the Son of God? Do you have an unshakable conviction that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world? Why do you believe?
It is important to have answers for people who ask us about our faith in Jesus. It is important to remember why we trust Jesus with our lives. We should be able to explain why we love Jesus!
The Lord is not offended when we ask questions. Jesus is not angered when we seek answers. God is not keeping secrets from us!
Jesus is calling us into relationship with Him. The devil the current world system and our fleshly desires draw us away from Christ!
I heard A bible teacher use the term; the theory of comparative advantage. It is a phrase used by people in the marketing field. A comparative advantage is something a product or service offers that is superior to a competitor’s product or service.
Jesus is not a product. He has no competition. But what is the competitive advantage of living in relationship with Jesus? What is the competitive advantage of living for Jesus?
Should we serve the Lord because He will not allow us to get sick or injured? Should we worship Jesus because He will make us rich and famous? Should we trust Jesus because we will never suffer trials and hardship? Why should we receive and return God’s love?
The Lord has made many promises to us. The greatest of them is His promise to love us. God desires our worship and our praise. He wants our obedience and devotion. God desires our love above all things!
We were created to love God and be loved by Him. No other relationship way of life false religious system or manmade thing will satisfy our souls the way God’s love does!
Are you staggering in your walk of faith? Is your heart heavy? Are you carrying a burden that too is too heavy for you to endure? Turn to the one who loves you perfectly and whose love completes you. Lean on the Lord. Let Jesus carry your burdens for you!
God will reward you with the true riches of His Kingdom. He will reward you with blessings that are incorruptible and beyond the reach of anything that would draw you away from Christ!
Believe the words that were spoken by Jesus. Believe every word in the bible. Jesus’ words were spoken to you and for you. The bible is full of God’s promises to love you!
