May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
We were created with a longing for Christ. We unsuccessfully try to fill this emptiness with people, things, and projects. But the truth is, only Jesus can satisfy your soul. only Jesus can make you whole. It’s not enough just to know who he is, you need to personally experience the love of Christ in your life.
For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
A soul on fire is a heart that has moved from knowing who God is to having a personal relationship with God. It is passionate about sharing the Word of God and the love of God with hurting people. Be sure to keep your flame fanned by using the gifts God has given you to help bring salvation and hope to the lost.
When I am in distress, I call to you, because you answer me.
Sometimes we get too set on having to know the answers. Faith is not about having the answers; it’s about knowing the one who has the answers. Having a relationship with God is what’s important. Just knowing that you can call to him and he will hear you is more important than the actual answer.
When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.
You don’t have to be a college graduate, a public speaker, or anything like that to have the courage to speak to people about Jesus. All you need is a relationship with him and the willingness to share your own testimony to tell others about God’s love, goodness, grace, and mercy.
