We still have so much to learn about God and His will for our lives.

Romans 11:33 KJV O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

We go through many stages of learning in our life.  Goals are set and attained but there still will be so much to learn.  When you think about God’s Word you may think that reading the Bible through will add to your knowledge of God.  However, I hope you have discovered as I have that every time you read God’s Word it brings a new level of understanding into your life.  God’s inspiration comes in many forms and at many times of needs.  Keep searching and God’s Word will give you a better understanding of what God’s desire is for you.

This is God’s inspiration to His people.

Romans 10:9-11 KJV That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

All you must do is believe with all your heart that Jesus died on the cross and was gloriously raised from the dead.  His appearance after the resurrection made a dramatic impact of those that witnessed him.  The time Jesus spent revealing his presence has given all who have since been born to have a promise and hope for the future.

Have you made a public profession of your faith in Jesus Christ?  Do you still remember the excitement it put into your life?  Continue showing the excitement as each day brings you closer to life everlasting.

Because of rejection, the people fail to find the promise of life everlasting with the Lord.

Romans 9:33 KJV As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Quoting Old Testament teaching, Paul tried to point his listeners to Jesus. Jesus wasn’t the reason they stumbled. They stumbled because they turned away from Jesus. Jesus wasn’t turning people away from God. Jesus was the chief cornerstone giving people a solid foundation to rest upon.

I believe people are looking for peace in their life. People want stability. People want security. People will only find these things when they receive Jesus as Lord and Savior. The world can’t give you peace. Only Jesus can give you peace. John 14:27 KJV Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Receive Jesus and fear can be a eliminated.

It truly is a love without end, Amen!

Romans 8:38-39 KJV For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

How do you share love with those around you? It is not what you say. It is not what you do. It is not what you do to impress others. It is how your words, actions, and feelings are revealed in how others see and respect you.

Jesus met and talked with many people. Jesus performed acts of healing during His ministry. Jesus never took personal credit for those things He did. Jesus showed others how much they meant to Him. He revealed God’s amazing love to all regardless of their past.

Do not allow the world to take away the love that God has for you. Receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and you will find what love can do for you and others.
