Jesus is our Life! Through His death on the cross and resurrection three days later we receive forgiveness of our sins and eternal life, when we repent and believe in Him as the Christ, the Son of God. Then God lives in us! Go tell others the gospel so they can have Him too! Don't be afraid! God will enable you and bless you with peace, so have no fear. Don't be insensitive to His words! (principles from LK24:13-53)
"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead [dies], yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?" JH 11:25-26
Miraculous power available to the humble believer who repents of his sin (harmfulness); use that power to save people. (principles from LK5:4-11)
And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt [are willing WU], thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed [cured WU]. MT 8:2-3
Believing in Jesus saves because He has the authority to forgive sins. He can make us clean, and it doesn't take Him long to do it. (principles from MK1:39-2:12)
Jesus makes people clean, and it doesn't take Him long to do it. Jesus balanced teaching and healing crowds of people with getting away to pray. (principles from LK5:12-16)
God the Father and Jesus his Son continue working. They are together and show the principles by what they do. Jesus gives life to whom he is pleased to give it, and He has been given authority to judge whether we believe His word and do good (whether we really love the Lord more than our selfish ways), because as a man he knows us. Those who do these things have eternal life, those who don't will be condemned. Jesus seeks to please God the Father, and judges according to His principles. Jesus' work shows He came from the Father. Believing in Jesus brings God and his word into you, so don't refuse him and side with others. Refusing to put effort into following his teachings keeps people from believing. Believe and live! (principles from JH5:16-5:47)
To do the work of God is to believe in Jesus, the One God sent to us to save us from sin (harm) and evil. That said, don't be insensitive to His communication toward you; He wants and can enable you to live like He does, and wants to keep you. Believe and be saved! Listen to and learn from what God says so you can tell the difference between right and wrong. This will help a lot, make it natural for you to home in as God draws you in to believing in Jesus, who came from Him, and be saved. Then God will live in you and He will enable you to succeed at applying His principles, overcoming all your harmful desires. (principles from JH6:25-6:65)
Jesus shows the world true life; follow Him and you will continually have it. Jesus came from God the Father and if you believe in Him you will not die in the midst of your harmful ways, (if you believe in Him you will be saved). Since Jesus always lives by and speaks according to what he learned from the Father, the Father is with him. If you hold to Jesus' teachings (one is to believe in Him), you are really his disciple and will know and be set free by the truth. People are enslaved by their harmful ways, but Jesus can set us free if we choose to accept the truth of His teachings for our lives. Otherwise, we will not recognize that Jesus is God, and does no harm. (principles from JH8:12-59)
