VerseD: 2 Thessalonians 3:5

May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.
2 Thessalonians 3:5, ESV

We come to Christ because the Holy Spirit draws us to Him.

Listen to the Spirit. Trust Christ in all things.

VerseD: John 8:32

“and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
John 8:32, ESV

Jesus is the Truth. He is the One who sets you free.

Lean on Jesus.

Trust Him.

VerseD: Romans 10:10

For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
Romans 10:10, ESV

Some confess without ever believing. Some believe and are not able to confess.

However, it does take faith, and we are commanded to share (if possible) that Jesus is our Redeemer and Lord. (Matthew 28:18-20)

VerseD: John 3:36

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.
John 3:36, ESV

The hard truth is that full belief in Jesus means obedience to Jesus. It is not strictly about rules but knowing how He has said to love Him.

VerseD: Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Hebrews 13:8, ESV

Our timeless, all-powerful, loving, ever-present, unchanging God put on human flesh to draw us to Himself in grace and forgiveness.

Trust in His nature and Word, not the changing winds of doctrine so prevalent nor emotional responses to life.

VerseD: John 14:21

“Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”
John 14:21, ESV

Who has Jesus’ commandments?

Those who believe in the sacrificial God-Man Jesus who rose again; those who love God by loving others and love His Church.

VerseD: Mark 11:24

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Mark 11:24, ESV

The only condition here is “according to God’s will.” In Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, we are conforming to His likeness with access to His mind.

Believe in God, and pray for this world and your witness to it.
