If you were to ask me what was my favorite scriptures in the Bible; I would tell you that it was these. It seems that John knew Jesus in a more Spiritual sense than any other Apostle. Of course, it is written of him that he was the Apostle whom Jesus Loved. In these few scriptures, it explains who Jesus is. So many people really don't know whom the Son of God is. They look upon Him as just another man. While in fact, He did come to this earth in human form, He is not merely just another man. He is the expressed Word of God, He is the personality of God, He is God Himself. Of course man cannot see that, unless the Holy Spirit reveals this to them. Jesus is the Word of God, as explained in the first verse on this page. The Word we know to be from the Bible. Holy scriptures that the Holy Spirit moved men to write, so all would have a record of whom Jesus Christ is. In John 1:2 it tells us that as many as receive Him, to them will be given eternal life. Receive who, Jesus, who is Jesus, the Word of God; So if you receive the Word of God into your life, then you receive Jesus, and if Jesus is the expressed image of God, then you actually receive God into your life. God is life Himself; without Him there is no life.So how do we receive Jesus into our lives? By forsaking your old lifestyle and stop following after the lusts of the flesh and begin to follow after the Word of God. Allowing the Word of God, Jesus Christ, to lead your lives from this day forward. It is when we crucify our old desires and our old feelings and begin to walk after the Word of God. This is the Born Again Effect, when we are no longer children of this world , but we have become children unto God. Faith in Jesus and Him alone can save you. Religion cannot, good works cannot, or buying yourself into the Kingdom cannot save you, only faith in Jesus.
What does faith mean? It is to believe the Word of God to the point of applying it to our lives. James 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. James 2:20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? So faith must have action to it, Just like Noah, when he built the arc. It never rained upon the ground before. But because God spoke to him and instructed him to build, he did as God instructed. And because of this man's obedience, mankind did not perish with the flood.
God is speaking to you today; He is saying that this day He sent His Word (Jesus) to you. Will you accept Him into your life or run from Him. He sent you this Word this day for one reason only; Because He loves you so. Maybe there was a time in your life where you thought that no one loved you. But you can have the assurance that God loves you. How do I know this; because He sent His Word to you, even this very day. God is calling you unto His kingdom to have life eternal. If you want you can pray right now where you are, just pray and mean it with your heart.
Dear Father in Heaven, I am a sinner. I have lived according to the ways of this world. But this day I repent from it all; I turn away from sin. I know that no religion can save me or any works can save me. Only the blood of Jesus is able to save me. Jesus come into my life and be my Lord and Savior. I surrender my life fully into your hands, to do your will and not mine. Change me, into what God wants me to be this very day. And reveal to me your will in my life and your truths.
Pray this prayer friend from your heart and your mouth. Press through until God shows you that you are saved. Then begin to thank Him and praise Him out loud for saving you. Get yourself a Bible, and begin to read and study it; I suggest start in the New Testament in the Gospel of John. Then get with other believers; those you know who live a true Christian Lifestyle. And tell them that you accepted Jesus into your life. Pray to God to send you to a Church which preaches and teaches the uncompromised Word of God. And let us know of your new found faith also. We would love to hear it and help you in any way that God would allow.
