Christianity is not a Religion. It's the only way to Eternal Life!
Confidence you can cling to
If a bully, twice your size, is picking on you, you have a reason to fear But if you have a friend twice the bully's size, standing next to you, the bully has a reason to fear
When you know that someone bigger. greater, and more powerful than your enemy has your back, confidence is the result
Perhaps this is why the apostle Paul, inspired by the Holy Spirit. wrote a letter to the believers in Rome-reminding them of the truth
"So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death" Romans 81-2 NLT
Because the Roman believers belonged to Jesus, they no longer had to live fearfully God causes all things to work together for the good of those who love Him and one day. He will make everything-including our dying bodies-brand new
The truth about their identity emboldened Paul....
"What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?" Romans 831 NLT
"What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?"
If the Creator and Sustainer of everything that exists has put Himself on our side, who can be against us? Who can even touch us? Who would even think about picking a fight that they ultimately could not win?
Someone might hurt our feelings or even our bodies, but they cannot touch our souls. They cannot come against the living God and succeed They cannot turn against God's chosen people without answering for their decisions This means that whatever wrong has been done to us can be left in God's reliable hands
We can rely on God as our just Defender and our righteous Judge.
When we become His by trusting in Jesus as our Savior-by grace through faith-the strongest defense in the universe, God in His fullness (the Father, Son and Holy Spirit), is forever on our side
God, I am so grateful that I get to be a part of Your great story. Thank You for having a plan and a purpose for my life. Help me not to step back in fear, but to be able to step out in faith and do what You've called me to do. Remind me each day that I am enough for You, and that you are enough for me. In Jesus' name, Amen.
