And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
All through out the book of Acts people gave their lives to Jesus Christ. They saw many miracles and believed. Jesus said blessed are those that believe and have not seen.
I remember when I was filled with the spirit. Although I didn’t see miracles done by Jesus I did fill his presence and once I read his good news I fell to my knees and gave my entire life to him.
It has been a journey of falling and getting back up on my feet knowing that giving up is not an option. Even if others try to point a finger at me for one reason or another I will look up to the final judge of my salvation and continue to move towards his kingdom. My savior is Jesus and nothing or anyone else.
My life is based on his death and burial given to my by his love for me. That is the most important thing to me. Trying each day to acknowledge a heart felt thanksgiving and praise for that awesome gift he gave me. ‘Eternal life’
By his death I am able to have access to salvation and freedom.
Only faith in what he did shall get me to heaven. Not if I am a good person but a good worshiper and belief by faith alone.
So today I will concentrate on these verses:
1 Thessalonians 5:18
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
The only thing I can do is give thanks for every breath of live allowed me.
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
Let me give of my heart to others and father I ask you please help me to love others even my enemies as you do. I pray that I learn how to love others more and more.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Dear father your gifts are quite simple and you ask only that we live this way by:
Gentleness and self-control.
So today as I enjoy another blessed day given to me by your grace let me think of these things written in you word. The gifts from heaven.
