Prosperous New Year 2023 Focus: Have Faith and Believe in Christ Jesus
Glory to God, a new year, fresh start, and more opportunities to center our faith in our Lord Christ Jesus in order to fulfill our God given purposes and have good success. Understand that to have faith in Christ Jesus means to have such trust in Him that we obey whatever He commands. As we place our faith in Christ Jesus, becoming His obedient disciples, our Heavenly Father will forgive our sins and prepare us to return to Him.
We must priorities our time with the Lord!
Did you know that to have faith in Jesus is to reject all other ways of salvation? We cannot trust in Jesus and anything else. We trust in Jesus alone. “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Salvation is exclusive. Jesus is the only way (John 14:6).
Did you know that the Bible contains a clear definition of faith in Hebrews 11:1: “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Simply put, the biblical definition of faith is “trusting in something you cannot explicitly prove.”
When all is said and done…have faith and believe in Christ Jesus!
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13). Hallelujah!
"Dear God, I come before you today with a humble heart and surrender my life to you. I believe that Jesus Christ was born free of sin, died on the cross as a payment for my own sin, and rose three days later. I believe in your gift of salvation and eternal life because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. God, today I repent and turn from my old way of life. Because of your mercy and grace, I can have childlike faith. Today I ask for new life through Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. Thank you God for forgiving me and making me brand new. In Jesus' name, Amen.
