LUKE - LESSON 6


BELIEVING IN JESUS

Luke 9:18-27

One time when Jesus was praying alone, his followers were with him, and he asked them, Who do the people say I am...Peter answered, You are the Christ from God.

The immensity of this question is staggering. Many have looked at Jesus, but few have seen him. Only a few have dared to say I believe that you are the Son of God.

When we believe in the Son of God we want to follow him. Sometimes we are scared of the risks and costs involved, but His Word teaches us that any sacrifice we make will be well worth the eternal reward. So we take our focus off the things of the world and place our hopes in spending eternity with Him.

Sometimes it is difficult to express why we believe in Jesus. Why we believe he is the Son of God . I was fortunate enough to be raised in a Christain home and was taught from an early age about the Love of God and that He gave His only Son to be sacrificed for us. I also believe in the Trinity - The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one in three persons. This mystery is beyond comprehension, but by Faith - I believe.

Galations 2:20
Paul says, I was put to death on the cross with Christ, and I do not live anymore -- it is Christ who lives in me. I still live in my body, but I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave his life to save me.

Ask and He will refresh your faith !

Please pray today for all those in peril from the storm. May our dear Lord calm this terrible hurricane and protect and guide all those living in harms way. We ask all things in His Name, thy will be done Lord.
