Believe in the Lord Jesus

When an earthquake struck the jail where the Apostle Paul was a prisoner, the jailer thought all had fled. Had Paul not cried out, the jailer would have certainly taken his own life. Paul saved him, but even more so, Jesus saved him.

“Then he brought them out and said, ‘Sirs, what must I do to be saved?’ And they said, ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.’”

(Acts 16:30-31)

During our darkest moments is when God will reveal Himself to us. We may feel lost, abandoned or utterly empty inside, but God is there to show us the way, to make us feel part of His family and to fill us with the Holy Spirit.

As long as we believe Jesus is the Son of God, we will have salvation. God will forgive our sins and not hold anything against us because we had faith that Jesus died for us in order that we might live. God would not have any of us fall to the penalty of sin.

Christ Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Through Him we have purpose, we have meaning and our reward, although we may not see it yet, God holds for us in heaven for that day when we will finally receive it in all gladness.

Believe in the Lord Jesus.
