Believe in the Lord Jesus

If we believe Jesus is the Son of God, who came to take away sins, who died on the cross and three days later rose from the dead, then we do well. Salvation is ours. Jesus is Lord and one day, we also will rise from the dead.

“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)

Prior to His crucifixion, Jesus grew up a carpenter. His first miracle was at a wedding feast where He turned water into wine. Soon after, he would cast out demons, heal the sick and raise the dead, for He is the Christ, the Son of the living God.

Jesus’ last miracle was healing the ear of a servant of the high priest who had come to take Him away. He could have commanded more than twelve legions of angels to rescue Him, but instead He said, “All who take the sword will perish by the sword.”

Jesus fulfilled the scriptures. He now sits at the right hand of the Father, and one day soon, He will return. Once He does, we will rise and be with Him always. His dominion will have no end, and its breadth will be from everlasting to everlasting.
