If ever I have needed my faith in God, it is now. These are scary times. I believe we are put on this Earth to tell others of His coming and to seek Him.
I am a member of the Church of Christ. With love, I wanted to share with you my belief and what I have been taught we need to do to become children of God. This may not be what you believe, but for me, this is my path.
1. Hear the word of God
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth him that sent me hath eternal life, and cometh not into judgement, but hath passed out of death into life."
2. Have faith and believe
Romans 10:17 says,
"Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God."
3. Confess that you believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God
Romans 10:8-10 says,
"But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
4. Repent of your sins
"Unless ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish."
"Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;"
5. Be baptized for the remission of your sins
"Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call."
May God bless and keep you safe.
Thank you for your post. I, too, am a strong believer and know that I couldn't make it without Him in my life. I know He watches over me. These are very scary times, but I don't feel afraid. He will be there for me whatever happens.ReplyDelete
