You, O God, are my king from ages past, bringing salvation to the earth.
Matthew 5:3 (NLT)
God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 20:30, 31 (NLT)
The disciples saw Jesus do many other miraculous signs in addition to the ones recorded in this book. But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life by the power of his name.
Romans 10:9 (NLT)
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Do you recognize your need for God? Have you taken an honest inventory of your abilities to control anything in life? The idea that you can control your life is an illusion the enemy presents as a possibility; but He is the father of all lies and there is no truth found in him (John 8:44).
You are helpless and powerless on your own to accomplish anything of eternal value; following the Lord is the only way of living life to its fullest. He loves you so much! He has a reminder of you engraved on His hand (Isaiah 49:16).His Love for you is so great that He was willing to give you something of the greatest value— His very life.
Now, that is Love!
You are helpless and powerless on your own to accomplish anything of eternal value; following the Lord is the only way of living life to its fullest.
