Only Believe

We read in Acts 16:31: "...Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved..."

In other words Only Believe. It is all written in The Holy Bible, The Holy Scriptures, The Word of God: "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus [Jesus as Lord], and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man [woman] believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:9-10).

The Gospel is easy to believe, when you simply believe with your heart! I realise some people, from a child, have had a hard life, been abused, had broken families, been bullied at school, parents out of work. Then, when they have grown older, have divorced from their partner, lost a child, always sick etc.

From experience, often (not always), people that have not always had a very good life, find it difficult to believe. It depends on the Person. It is good to show love to someone like this. Remember, it is hard for them when all they can think of is a negative life. When you first Find Jesus and are on fire, you won't always think of the people that have very bad lives! Jesus knows and understands! "Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed." (Isaiah 53:4-5).

God is Love! Whatever our past life has been, Good or Bad, Jesus, came to seek and to save that which was lost! Because, "For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not." (Ecclesiastes 7:20).

Life can become sweeter with Salvation through Jesus! Jesus came, that we might have life and have it more abundantly! (Read John 10:10).

Only Believe, all things are possible, Only Believe! Jesus saving and healing power is supernatural! We cannot overcome by our flesh or "mind over matter", but: "...Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts." (Zechariah 4:6).

God bless you!
