Do not deny Jesus .... He NEVER denies you!
Belief matters most.
Belief? ... That is all it really comes down to. That is what is most important. This is not rocket science. God asks us to believe and to repent. You mean that is it? Yes, that is it. When it happens your heart is changed forevermore. You are no longer who you used to be. The selfish, self centered person is no longer there. You will discover He is always there for you. He never turns His back on us. Don't ever turn your back on Him. Do not deny Jesus as He never denies you. Keep your eyes fixated on the cross and you will never waiver and you will never go wrong. He takes our sin away from us. The best thing that God has ever given me besides my salvation is humility. I am able to comprehend that all of the good that is manifested is all Him and not even an ounce of me. I wish it was me. It is not. It is quite humbling to say the least. Knowing this provides me with a solid foundation. He is the one who has done the saving and it is not a single thing that you or I do. Having the faith and strength of our Lord behind us will always guide our path. He says abide in Me and I will abide in you. Remember faith even the size of a mustard seed can move mountains. Has He moved mountains in your life? Here is the thing He probably has and we thought it was something that we did. Where is the humility in that? We really are downright silly at times. He knows us better than we know ourselves. It should of been us up there on that cross but He took our place instead. He is the substitution for our sin. He intercedes for us. That is how much He loves you. The next time you have an opportunity to discuss Him with your friends or family make sure you tell them how much He loves them. His love is completely immeasurable. It is immense. How can the world go around denying Him. He IS love.
Here are some verses to consider:
1 Timothy 5:8 But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
Exodus 20:1 And God spoke all these words saying, " I am The Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me."
Luke 9:23 Then He said to them all, " If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me."
Malachi 3:6 "For I am The Lord, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed O sons of Jacob. Yet from the days of your fathers you have gone away from my ordinances and have not kept them. Return to Me and I will return to you."
Jeremiah 17:9 "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; Who can know it? I, The Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings."
John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
God bless always.
