My friends, greetings and peace to you all:
I thank God for being in my life. I believe in God with my whole heart, mind and soul, and I trust you do too. My friends, in these difficult times that we are facing, we need to believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died to save us from our sins. We must believe that God will come again to judge the living and the dead, and that the righteous will have a seat at God's table. For us to believe, we must have faith. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen (Hebrews 11:1). We must live our lives each and every day as if it is our last day on this earth because we just do not know when God will call us home.
My friends, there is no better time than now to start believing and trusting God with all your heart, mind and soul. Hebrews 11:6 tells me that without faith no one can please God. Anyone who comes to God must believe that He is real and that He rewards those who truly want to find Him. That means we must believe that God has our backs in everything we say and do and in every situation that we encounter. He has our backs in good times and in bad times, even if the situation does not seem that way. We must believe in God with all our hearts mind and soul even when the devil is poking us to turn away from God. When we believe that God has the situation already taken care of or that HE will answer our prayers, that's faith.
One Wednesday's Bible study, my pastor, Rev. Dr. Felix Williams, taught us students that heaven is a place where we will live with God forever, but before we get there, there is a plan of salvation for us. Rev. Williams said that salvation requires FAITH.
F - FORGIVENESS (we must ask God to forgive us of our sins)
A - AVAILABLE (salvation is available to all of us)
I - IMPOSSIBLE (it is impossible to do it on your own)
T - TURN (we need to turn away from our sins)
H - HEAVEN (a place prepared for us by God)
My friends, all we need is to have faith the size of a mustard seed, knowing that God will grant us His favor, God will answer our petitions. Keep believing in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. God said to tell you that it will be all right. It is already done, in the name of Jesus.
