I’m joining a new blogging adventure and that’s blogging through the alphabet! I think this will be fun and there are a lot of awesome bloggers participating in this. If you have the time, please read some of the other blog posts in this series. I’ll have the link posted at the end of this post.
First and foremost, I missed “A” in this series. We’ll just say that my Blogging The Alphabet A post is “Absent.” 🙂
“B” is for Believe!
First, I believe in Jesus Christ. He is my Lord and Savior. I believe He came as a baby – born of a virgin mother. He is the Son of God and He died on the cross for my sins. And, even more miraculously I believe He rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven. And, I
believe KNOW He’s coming back again.
Second, I believe that He loves not only me, but you as well. Despite our sins, He asks us to come to Him as we are. I love Him because He first loved us – while we are still sinners. (1 John 4:19 and Romans 5:8). He doesn’t ask us to clean up our act and THEN come to Him. He loves us just as we are. It’s through Him that we are cleansed and are white as snow.
Third, I believe that Jesus is the Truth and the only Truth. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) He is the ONLY way to heaven. It doesn’t matter if you are a “good person” or have done “good things.” Those things will not get you into heaven. If you don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ, you’re not going to heaven. It’s as simple as that. It’s not about religion. It’s about a relationship. You can know the Bible inside and out (head knowledge) but if you don’t have Him in your heart (heart knowledge) then all your knowledge won’t do you any good.
Fourth, I believe that you CAN have a relationship with Jesus. It’s as easy as ABC.
- A – Admit you’re a sinner. We all sin. We all fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
- B – Believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins. And, that He rose from the grave and ascended into heaven. “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.” John 3:16
- C – Confess with your mouth that you believe in Jesus. Tell others. Romans 10:9-10 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.“ Now – go tell someone!!!
I believe. Do you? If not, I’d be happy to talk to you about it. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
