Firstly, I have a message for Monica, Tuyetson, Katie, Leigh and Elisabeth....
You guys rock! Your comments just keep me energized and I just wanted
you to know that you guys help me SO much with your questions and
comments. Thank you SO much!
Now that I'm happy,(well, I was happy, so really happy), I'm going to
talk about JeSuS! Yay! Cue: I love Jesus song :)
So, Jesus said some pretty AMAZING things, am I right? And since not
all of us know JUST HOW MUCH HE LOVES US, let's have HIM tell you!
"You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Matthew 8:26
Why are YOU so afraid? YOU are one of God's temples. He treasures you!
Yes, you might go through some tough times, but he's going to be the
with you. Don't be afraid! Have faith!
What did Jesus say about faith?
"Your faith has saved you- go in peace." Luke 7:50
Having faith will SAVE you! We have FAITH that God is with us, and
because our faith in him is so great, we are loved, cherished,
forgiven. If we had no God, no amazingly powerful and loving father,
who would forgive us? Who on EARTH is this loving? Who would DIE for
our sins? NO ONE! But Jesus LOVES us! He will always forgive us.
What did he say about forgiveness?
"If he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times comes
back to you and says, 'I repent', forgive him" Luke 17:4
He will ALWAYS forgive you! He wants you to forgive others as well.
Forgiveness is key! Forgiveness is part of what SAVES you. Because
none of us have always been perfect. Except Jesus.
A cool parable (well, part of it,) that he said..
" Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine
pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold
everything he had and bought it." Matthew 13:45-46
We need to throw all of our selfish needs away for Christ. Because in
the end, we won't have the things we saved. Only the people.
