Title: Only Believe You will be saved
(John 3:16-21) 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
There is too much power in this simple word “BELIEVE “ . In the Christendom, there are different kinds of believes and culture, traditions, different kinds of worship. Some people believe so much in their ways or methods of worship. Some believe in their pastors , some believe so well on their church leaders and are very kin to all the human rituals and religious rituals that goes on today. What you believe is very important and that is what is going to shape your future and will guide you unto salvation.
Many of us are following our religious leaders and their directions and we have the zeal to do the will of God but we are not going through the right channel. For us to receive salvation of our souls that will lead us to spend eternity with Christ , we have to believe in Jesus the only Son of God . There is no other one whom we can believe in that can lead us to salvation except Jesus . There is no other name to believe in , no other person to believe in except in Jesus. (Acts 4:12) Salvation is found in no one else, for there in no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.
For God so Loved the whole world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. This is a free gift to all, the whole world, not only a country or states, but to you and i . See the Bible is not telling you to believe in your church, it is not telling you to believe in yourself, or believe in your church rules and regulations, is not telling you to believe in your bishop, prophet or any man of God. No, not about any of that , but it says whoever believes in the son of God, Jesus. Only believe that He came and died for your sins, the Bible says you are not condemned. But whoever doesn’t believe in this name is condemned already because they didn’t believe in the son of God.
See, it is only believing in this name that will take you and I to the kingdom of God. Your faith in the Lord is what is going to bring you salvation , to God’s Kingdom. It is not difficult for us to do this simple believing in Jesus, but the devil makes it to look difficult. What you believe in will bring you condemnation or bring you deliverance or salvation. Some of us are very busy with rules and regulations of religion but neglecting what is important. We can observe all the religious rituals and still miss the way. Only believe in the son of God , Jesus . The only reason why He came to die is for us to believe in Him and He will set us free from the bondage of sin. Jesus is the only way to heaven, accept Him today to avoid regret tomorrow. God bless you .
Prayers: God help me to have faith in you. You are the only way, please help my unbelief and grant me favor to know you more in Jesus name. Thank you Jesus.
