To know Jesus as our friend is the greatest friendship we could ever own.
Do you know Jesus as your friend? Have you accepted Him as your Lord or Master of your life, or are you still navigating your future blindly, hoping your wisdom and experiences will be enough for a good life?
And what about Death? Have you any plans in overcoming, or are you just excepting the fate of all humanity? There is someone greater than Death, life tragedies, and the errors of our ways – a Forgiver, a grace giver, a life-changer – Jesus! He is the Son of God, sent to redeem us back to our Creator and Heavenly Father, God of all things. Jesus is the exact replica or image of the Father, the One True God, in human flesh to overcome all these things, our failures, tragedies, and, as I said, the last obstacle, Death itself. Do you want eternal life? Then know Jesus.
In these posts, Life in Christ, I will be sharing Scriptures and what I’ve learned about our Creator and Friend, Jesus Christ. It’s His face we see when we see the Father of all. It is in Jesus that we find our rest, quench our thirst in this thirsty world, where ultimately, anything we do will not satisfy the longings of the soul to be something more – perfect and to achieve wonders. Eternity is in our hearts – greatness, perfection, and it is all found in Life and in the words of Jesus who declared –
“I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.” – John 6:35
As Christians, we must live our lives through the Bible, accepting every word as God’s. (Hebrews 4:12) It’s for correcting us, rebuking a child doing the wrong thing, a child that God can’t bless. He is Holy and dwells in goodness and light, and His children do the same. We no longer belong, as believers, in darkness like those who do not know Jesus as their personal friend and Savior. To know Christ is to be like Him, to love Him, and His teachings and Word.
Come, join me as we learn more about our Savior and Friend, Jesus Christ –
“until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” – Ephesians 4:13 NIV
