“Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right. You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, announcing the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all.” (Acts 10:34-36)
God does not favor anyone. Forgiveness of sins is still needed. God is not just Lord of the Jews, He is Lord of all.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35)
We can love one another because God loved us first. We are loved, we can love and that love can be shared with one another.
“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” (Exodus 14:14)
God will fight for you, but you have to be still and let Him guide you. Do not fear and look at the problems that surround you. Trust God and know that He will take care of you. God is Lord, and He loves you.
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” (2 Timothy 1:7)
The Holy Spirit guides us everyday and through every circumstance. The Spirit gives us endurance to resist temptation and follow the path to righteousness without questioning ourselves.
“For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.” (Psalms 100:5)
God’s promises are Truth which endures through all generations. He is merciful and never changes and we should be thankful for all He has given us. Praise God!
“If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.” (Hebrews 10:26-27)
After knowing and receiving God as your Lord and Savior, you can not reject Him after knowing Him. You can not deliberately continue to sin, knowing full well of what you are doing and expect God to keep forgiving. Your heart will harden and there is no hope. God is a loving God but also a God of vengeance.
There is no longer sacrifice of sins when we continually keep sinning.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13)
This scripture means so much to me, because I did not have any hope. Satan took hold of me, and I was lost. The person I used to be was no longer there and I spiraled downward.
God found me and captured me. I repented, converted and was born again. I was saved by God’s grace, though not deserving of it. My husband and I have a relationship with God and each other. I thank God everyday for what He has given me and my family.
