What You Believe About Jesus WILL affect your life.........no "if's," "and's," or "but's" about it--as they used to say.
Matthew 16:13-17 "When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say the Son of Man is?"
They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets."
"But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?"
Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
Jesus replied, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven."
What someone BELIEVES about Jesus Christ and who He REALLY is will have a direct affect on their life. Often people believe Jesus was a "good man, a good teacher, or they have heard He died on the cross but don't know why."
But when someone truly Believes that Jesus Christ IS the one and only Son of God and that He died in their place, it has a HUGE EFFECT on your life! Jesus isn't someone to take casually or to treat like an "add-on" to our lives! He is to BE OUR EVERYTHING!!!! How often do we let the gunk and junk of our cultures and our world take the place that only He deserves? How often do we put Jesus on the back burner during the week, and just "pull him out on Sunday?"
Is THIS the KIND OF RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND LIGHT TO THE WORLD THAT WE ARE SUPPOSE TO BE????
No!-May it never be!
So does what I Believe about Jesus affect my life in every area of every day?
Does what you believe about Jesus affect your life in every area of every day?
Somewhere along the way we've let our passion for Jesus get "sizzled out" by other things!
He wants to find us FAITHFUL!!!
1 Samuel 12:24 "But be sure to fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you."
