THE SPIRITUAL LIFE FOUNDATION
John 20:29 (KJV)
Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
John 20:29 (Amp)
Jesus said to him, because you have seen Me, Thomas, do you now believe (trust, have faith)? Blessed and happy and to be envied are those who have never seen Me and yet have believed and adhered to and trusted and relied on Me.
I salute you in the Name of Jesus our Lord and soon coming King, Jesus The anointed one. Over the past several weeks we have been covering in part, the subject of family, from our local family to the universal family of God. No one can ever detach himself or herself from the family. Whether it is our immediate family, or the family of God. When you are born in a family, that’s where you belong and all your siblings are your sisters and brothers. Whether you agree with them in principle or not, it’s not the issue. As much as you cannot change the blood that runs through your system, you cannot change your relationship with one you are joined together. Am recapping this because in the family of God we are bonded by His blood, and one major avenue, BELIEVE.
We are beginning a new series on the subject of BELIEVE. This word is so important that we need to fully understand its meaning and application. It is the foundation of all spirituality for all the world’s religions. There is a major difference however, between Christianity and all religious systems. While the religious systems BELIEVE in their “religion”, Christians BELIEVE in a person. The religious groups of the world attempt to reach out to God. For Christians, God reaches out to them. World religions work hard to earn the favor of God. In Christianity, God has already showed us favor, so we are not seeking His goodwill, we are highly favored. Our part is to receive what God has given and we do that by BELIEVING. In Christianity, a lack of believe results to sin and it’s considered evil, or wicked….we will dissect as much truths as possible from God’s word. Meanwhile, meditate on the above theme scripture from both translations…we will unlock some powerful truths in these series. CHECK OUT NEXT WEEK IN YOUR SPREADING THE LIGHT BULLETIN. DO NOT MISS IT. ITS GONNA BE POWER PACKED. WE LOVE YOU.
