CHOOSE to believe in Him
I never tire of seeing artwork of Jesus. A piece like the one below of our beloved Lord and Savior always makes me think about Him and the Scriptures. It inspires me and puts me deep in thought about His sacrifice and that leads me into prayer.
Jesus submitted Himself to ridicule, extreme torture and execution, just for us, so we would have an opportunity for Salvation. Who wouldn't want to spend Eternity in Paradise with God, with all the joys of our hearts fulfilled? Man had failed so miserably at trying to observe the "Old Covenant" of the Bible, it was like "mission impossible!" I personally think God was making a point with us; the Bible says "for without faith it is impossible to please God". So God gave His only begotten Son, to take the penalty for our sins, so that "All Who Believe" in Him would not perish, but would have eternal life (Salvation).
The first step is to CHOOSE to believe in Him, Jesus, as the Savior of the world, who died for our sins and arose from the dead on the third day, just as the Old Testament of the Bible said He would.
Then simply give your heart to the Lord and trust in Him by simply praying to Him for forgiveness and the Peace that is so elusive without Him in your life. It's as simple as A, B, C. ADMIT you are a sinner and are sorry for your transgressions. BELIEVE that Jesus Christ died for your sins and arose from the dead on the third day. CONFESS without shame that Jesus is you personal Lord and Savior.
Our God is a "triune god": Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. When we believe, we become a "vessel of the Holy Spirit" and the Lord comes to dwell in us. How cool is that? And it just keeps getting better. The more we seek Him, the more He reveals. You don't want to miss this train!! Jesus really does save!
