As human beings when we make the decision to except Jesus as our Savior, we are asked to do something we are not really taught to do and that is to believe in something or someone we can’t see. It’s not an easy thing to do, yet when you except Jesus as your Savior and He comes into your heart immediately something changes for me I immediately believed in Jesus and knew He was real. You can’t just study the New Testament, in order to get the whole picture of Jesus and why He came to earth in the flesh you have to study the Old and New Testament prophecies. Pray, worship, and study the Scriptures to show yourself approved. We are a chosen people God called you and He is waiting for you to respond by excepting Jesus as the only way to heaven.

Remember through the sufferings you may have, Jesus is with you, He knows what you are going through because He has been there. The Spirit of Glory and of God rest on you. God bless you and keep you.
