“And He died for all, that those who live should not from now on live for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.” 2 Cor. 5:15
The Son of God, Jesus, is the conqueror who rules and reigns, only He is worthy of praise.
He is the real man who defeated hatred with love.
Jesus did not go the way of violence as many do today. They are portrayed as cool with their knife and revolver, but why is there fear in their eyes?
Jesus is the real man. Strong through His humbleness and love. You can live for Him who died and rose for you. You can be freed from just living for yourself.
Jesus challenges and calls. Dare to give your heart to Jesus and He will fill it with His power, peace and love. The drugs, the money, the stimulus and the not faithful acquaintances, are neither worth living nor dying for.
Jesus is not one who just talks, but He Himself has suffered, been beaten up and crucified and then resurrected from the dead as a conqueror. He did it for you so that you can be freed from the shackles of sin and darkness. Live for that man. There is no one like Jesus. His eyes are like flames of fire burning with love for you. Let that fire set your heart on fire for Him.
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. Whoever fears is not perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18
Let Jesus confirm you with His love. Then you will be secure on the inside. Seeking confirmation from the surroundings is like trying to catch the wind – when you think you have it, it has just blown away.
God bless you.
