VerseD: Colossians 2:6

Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him
Colossians 2:6, NASB

We receive Christ by hearing and believing the gospel. Likewise, we should be sharing the gospel and doing good works to help others come to the same saving faith.

VerseD: Acts 2:21

‘And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’
Acts 2:21, NASB

There is only one way to eternity with God: believe in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and make Him Lord of your life.

Any other path leads to eternal destruction.

VerseD: Matthew 7:24

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock.
Matthew 7:24, NASB

On Christ the solid rock we stand … if only we believe this Son of God came and died for our sins, as He said.

VerseD: Romans 10:17

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
Romans 10:17, NASB

How can others come to faith in Christ unless we tell them?

The Father enjoys using His faithful children to spread the gospel of His Son.

Another Re-Birthday

On this day 19 years ago, at 6:46 PM CST, I bent my knee to Jesus as Lord and Savior. (If you do a search on this site for “birthday”, you will see the various explanations.)

I like to call it my Re-Birthday, as we call faith in Christ being born again. This comes from John 3 and 1 Peter 1.

Something that excites me this year is that my Re-Birthday falls on Wednesday, which means I get to teach the youth about our Lord today!

Also, it is my mother-in-law’s birthday, so join me in wishing her a happy and blessed day! If not for her, I would not have my wife!

God bless you, and remember that Jesus Christ is the reason we live and move and breathe and have meaning!

VerseD: 1 John 4:15

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
1 John 4:15, ESV

If confess and believe that Jesus is the Son of God, God incarnate – God in the flesh, fully God and fully man – and that He lived a perfect life to die as our atonement on the cross and then rise back to life …

… you are saved. God dwells in you through the Holy Spirit to the glory of the Father.

VerseD: John 3:17

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
John 3:17, ESV

In His first advent, Jesus came to seek and she the lost.

It is His second advent where those who do not believe will be under condemnation.

This is the time to believe.
