What Do You Believe?

Ephesians 4:5; One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

The Literal Translation; One Lord, Jesus Christ, one faith, that of Jesus Christ; one spiritual baptism, with God in Christ in you.

Distractions have a way of pulling or pushing your attention away from the basics. The urgent takes precedence over the important things. Pause for a moment and really look at what you believe. Look at what and who you are following.

Just stop and breathe.

Last night we had a powerful Supporting Godly Women meeting. I talked about how to overcome stress, mental pressure and gain peace. My question to them and to you is in general was, who is the cause of stress?

The Devil is. After he gained the power and dominion of this world from Adam and Eve he designed systems in this world. Systematizing error, planting it deep in the believing and doctrine of young minds to cause fear, inferiority, and doubt. So let’s put the blame squarely on his shoulders.

2 Cor. 4:4; In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Why continue going to the world for answers when it was the world that confused you in the first place?

Who can get you out of this system?

God.

HOW could he do that?

Save you to the utmost.

Romans 10:9-10  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

What does that get us here on earth? Sure, we get eternal life but what does it do for us now?

Romans 8:31 ;What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

Romans 8:35; Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Romans 8:37; Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

John 14:27; Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

People and this world will run your life, unless you have confidence to make decisions based on the Word. 

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
