Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Acts of the Apostles 2:38 NLT
There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.”
Acts of the Apostles 4:12 NLT
There is so much happening in the world right now, and so much going on in the news, that it can be easy to lose our center of focus. As Christians we must remember that no matter what happens that Jesus is Lord. So many people claim Him as Savior, and of course He is that and so many other things, but He is also Lord. He is our Lord, He is our Commander, in this spiritual war. But even more than that, He is the Victor! We must remember that while we are in the throes of battle, the war has already been won. Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords and one day every knee shall bow before Him.
Psalm 91 is a favorite passage of mine and I often pray it over my home. I think we American Christians run to God for protection, and of course He is our mighty fortress and our Protector and Provider, but every now and then I have to remind myself that this life is not my own. I am a servant of the Most High as well as His child. Our time here on Earth is winding down, so let that encourage us to work while it is still day. There are still so many people out there who are deceived and lost. Let us continue to shine our light, which is the Light of Christ. Let us keep our focus ever upon Him, and await the day that we hear, “well done, good and faithful servant.”
This is an incredible message!
