Right and Wrong. Good and Bad. Yes and No. These are basic concepts we know…that aren’t so basic anymore. The world has become a mass of confusion and grey area. People don’t want to live in the right way, they choose to live in the comfortable way. Why is this happening? Why has the truth and righteous living become so disrupted? Humans have been confused forever. It is not a new issue. It is the same today as it was since the beginning of sin. The difference is that the topics have become more public…and the people don’t have very good examples to follow. So how can we make a difference in this world? We can be that loving example that this world so desperately seeks. Everyone is looking for peace. Everyone wants help and hope in all the trials and tribulations that they face. Everyone looks for ways to find that happiness we all desire. Everyone should be pointed to the Cross. Jesus is the answer to everything. Jesus is God’s Son…given to us…so that we could be forgiven, forsaken, and helped in absolutely all ways. Jesus suffered and died for you. Jesus bore all…so you could have all. God raised Jesus from the dead, and gave us the ability to have a peace-filled life on earth…and eternal life in Heaven. All you have to do is believe and receive. Believe with your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord and Savior. Then begin to allow the abundant love and peace to pour into your spirit, heart, and mind. Begin to feel the hope and help of God. He is always with us…no matter what is going on around us in this world. You will begin to desire the right…know the good…and proclaim ‘yes’ to the promises of God!
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. As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in Him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile – the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on Him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” ROMANS 10:9-13
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. 2 TIMOTHY 1:7
God is with us.
