Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.
Knowing scriptures will come in time, but you don’t have to have every scripture in the Bible memorized before you can tell someone about Jesus. Your personal testimony is one of the most compelling things you can share with someone. If someone asks you why you believe in Jesus, tell them your story, tell them what He has done for you and how your life has changed.
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry
As believers in Jesus we have been made righteous through Christ on Calvary and not by our own doing. We have, therefore, been adopted into the family of God the Father. We can rest assured that He watches over and protects us and when we cry out to Him we know He hears us.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Through the sacrifice made by Jesus on Calvary, God made a way for us to be saved from death and be with Him in heaven for all eternity. There is no other way to come to the Father, but through the Son. Not by works, merit or personal sacrifices. Jesus is the only way, He is our Savior, and there is no other way.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Everyone deals with stress now and then and some people deal with it on a regular basis. Meditating on God’s Word and praying help us to deal with external stressors. We also have to do our part in taking care of our bodies. We need to practice a healthy lifestyle, eat right, and exercise. Give your worries over to God, put your trust and confidence in Him and let the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, bring his peace into your life.
Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.”
If you really love Jesus, you will obey His teaching. Saying you love Him is easy, anyone can say they love Jesus, proving you do is another matter. When you understand and appreciate what Jesus did for you at the cross it changes you, you’re no longer the same. True love and gratitude responds in obedience and dedication and with passion.
