He answered, "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'" Luke 10:27

Am I Saved?

There’s a lot of people in today’s society who don’t know if they are saved or not and when asked they have to think about it for a minute. Why is that? Why do people hesitate when asked about their salvation? Is it really something we should have to ponder about? The answer is plainly written in the bible. The perfect place to look for the answer to salvation is in Romans 10:9-10:

That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

See it clearly tells you what you have to do to be saved. Salvation is a gift that is free to all to receive. It isn’t a gift given only to the “do gooders”. It’s free to receive for every person. There is nothing you have done that can keep you from receiving salvation, so stop believing the lies of the enemy. God loves you in spite of your sins and He wants ALL of His children to have a life with Him in Heaven after this life. A life of endless happiness, joy like we have never known, a perfect painless, disease free eternity so even if you haven’t always made the best choices in your life you still have the right to salvation. Isn’t that wonderful? God loved us so much that He gave up His only begotten son so that we have the right to be with Him in Heaven after this life. What an amazing gift. We should ALL receive this gift because it was purposely and perfectly designed for us to have. If you haven’t received it what are you waiting for? Haven’t you experience enough in this life to want the very best life eternally? I know I have and I’m thankful for my salvation. People need to stop thinking that they are not worthy because of how you may be living or have lived. If God decided to give us salvation based only on our sins none of us would be good enough to receive it. The only way we are good enough is through Jesus so I encourage you today to ask God to help you turn from your sinful ways and confess that Jesus is Lord, believe it in your heart that He was raised from the dead so that you will receive the awesome gift of salvation intended for you through the blood of the lamb! Be blessed, stay encourage and know that God loves YOU!

Favor

There’s a lot of people who believe in luck. When they are promoted to a better job when there are several people more suited for the position, they shout about how lucky they are or when their money is acting kind a funny and someone who they may not even know helps them with a few of their bills, they speak about luck was on there side. The truth of the matter is luck had nothing to do with either of these examples. The thing society labels as luck is the favor of God acting in our lives. According to the text read in learnthebible.org, “To favor means to give special regard to; to treat with goodwill; to show exceptional kindness to someone”, with that being said, favor from a biblical stand point is the supernatural goodwill given to us from God. There’s no need to carry around a four leaf clover to get this favor. God chooses who and He chooses when to use favor in our lives. People often think favor is just for the righteous and that’s not true. Granted He does bless those who are doing His will with favor but He also blesses those who are not doing His will. Why would He do this? Well in spite of what the world may think, He loves them just as much as He loves the folks who are doing His will. He just hates the sins that they commit and He will give favor to them so that they can come to see who He is. If He supernaturally comes in with favor to someone who is lost and helps them find a job you never know they may think hard about how was this possible with little education and no experience and sooner or later they will come to realize that there is no other explanation but the favor of God acting on their behalves. Today we need to stop looking for luck and start looking for God! He will make the humanly impossible possible when we but our faith in Him! Have a blessed day, stay encouraged and know that God loves YOU! ❤️

Are You Making Time For Jesus?

In today society everything is fast paced and it seems that we have little to no time for anything. We rush to get ready for work. We rush to get breakfast cooked for the kids. We rush to get the kids to school. We rush to get to work, running in with coffee in one hand and lunch in the other. The whole time we are at work we are rushing the time by so we can get home to help with homework, do dinner & prepare the kids for bed. In all this busyness when do we have time for Jesus? Granted life is chaotic at times, but we MUST make time for our relationship with Jesus! We cannot survive this evil cruel world without Him. Without making time to talk to Jesus, constantly learning of God’s word and keeping prayer on the tips of our tongue we are defenseless against the enemy and his evil army and whenever we are defenseless it makes us vulnerable for attack. I’m not saying when you study God’s word or keep a praying tongue you won’t get attack, because you will, but if you are attacked you are equipped with the weapons that will bring you victory so I encourage you guys if you don’t have a relationship with Jesus do it now, establish one. If you don’t know how, start out with a simple prayer, “Lord I believe that you exist. I’m ready to make you my savior. Please come into my heart and help me with this journey we call life. In Jesus name AMEN”. If you say a prayer even as small as this you have taken the first step to the best thing that could happen to you, a relationship with Jesus. Have a blessed Sunday, stay encouraged and know that Jesus loves YOU!! ❤️

Learn To Take The Good With The Bad

In life we have to take the good with the bad. Not everybody that says “I love you” means it and not everybody who appears to be your friend is truly your friend. So never be surprised by what people do to you or do against you. Jesus was a perfect man free of sin and look what they did to him. If people could abuse, beat, spit, kick, hang and do all unimaginable things to a perfect man why would you ever believe they wouldn’t be cruel, mean, abusive and hateful to you? They will but brothers and sisters know that anything that we go through in life will never compare to the abuse Jesus endured for you and me. Always remember no weapons formed against you will prosper when you have Jesus in your life. Be blessed!! ❤
