In America, one can easily find new Bibles written in formats suited for different needs. It’s wonderful knowing that though the Bible is old its translations are continually updated to accurately communicate God’s original message. And, that those translations are inspected in order to maintain God’s word as pristine to that same original text.
There are several Bible versions in my home, especially since my daughter and her husband are seminary students working on their doctrines. The Bible I usually reference is the New International Version Life Application Study Bible. It contains more than 23,500 cross references. Those references provide for lots of information.
We Christians are founded on His holy word and we must do all we can to continually reverence it–not pollute it with the nonsense of society.
Last week I shared that some folks are afraid to call on Jesus because they believe He accuses and condemns. Bible verses were selected to explain why that idea is the total opposite of God’s truth. It’s satan who is our accuser and Jesus is the One who saves us.
This week I want to share how having faith in Jesus not only helps us grow closer to Him and receive Him as our savior, but faith also gives us power in the middle of a storm-faith helps us to overcome.
Last week’s post explained who, as we stand before God, is the real accuser of sin–For the accuser [satan] of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.
It is satan, continuing both day and night, who accuses–not God. God loves you! He sent His one and only son to die a sacrificial death so that we may have life eternal. If you don’t believe in this gift please know that at any moment, on any day, whether it’s the very best day of your life or the very worst day, God is right there with you. He stands near, simply waiting for you to accept the truth of His love.
Watch the following video that explains more of God’s love for you:
Are you afraid to call on Jesus because you believe He accuses and condemns? If you answered yes, you are not alone. Many believe that lie. Folks don’t realize the true difference between Jesus and satan: the One offers us love and hope, the other seeks to steal, kill and destroy.
Don’t be fooled by the other!
Watch my short video to better understand who your friend and confidant really is–the One who loves you most. Versus the other who chooses to condemn all thoughts and actions as evil.
