Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
America, if we want to stay right with God, Jesus tells us He is the only way to having a personal relationship with the Father. In fact by His stating “I am,” Jesus is revealing His holy identity.
The phrase “I AM,” makes it clear to all that Jesus is claiming to be more than a rabbi or prophet; Jesus was claiming to be the Messiah—God come to earth as man.
America, if we want a closer relationship with God, if we truly desire to know Him better and Him to know us, we need a relationship with Jesus Christ.
The Bible tells us confession to God is the way to forgiveness and forgiveness means our sins are gone. Yep, the Bible tells us God not only forgives, He also forgets.
Isaiah 43:25 “I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.
This assurance of God’s forgiveness and the additional blessing that He also forgets our sin means we walk away with a clean slate. It’s as if we never sinned. What an undeserving gift from a loving Father to individual Christians and to America as a whole. But the important idea to remember is the blessing comes when we are truthful and confess–
Do you know God is omnipresent? He is everywhere at the same time. How awesome is God? This means when we pray to Him from anywhere He hears us. My husband and I have trouble hearing each other when we are in the same room, but not God. Even in the darkest places, places we would never tell our best friend that we have wandered into, God is there and He hears and listens.
Hearing and listening are two separate abilities. Hearing is the perception of sound through the ear canal while listening takes skill. Listening processes what is being said. I guess the truth is my husband and I do hear each other, we just don’t process the words.
But not God. God listens intently. In fact He desires us to pray to Him anytime we choose; communing with God strengthens our relationship with Him.
America, we need to commune with God everyday so that our relationship with Him grows stronger.
