Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, wish you a happy and blessed day!

First and the foremost, the world would have ceased to exist very long back because of the sin. if God would have chosen to punish us outright for our sins, where do you and I stand? We stand nowhere if God counts each and every sin that we committed till now. Isn’t it the love of God that kept us from His wrath? Very truly, our God’s love is immeasurable. God loved us so much that He gave His begotten Son, Lord Jesus. Rather than punishing the mankind, God chose to give us a chance to reconcile with Him through Jesus Christ. Therefore, Jesus became the only way for our salvation and eternal life with God.

From the above and the subject verse, It is absolutely clear that we need to believe in the Lord. Importantly, our faith in Jesus sets the tone for our living. But merely saying our belief outwardly would not do any good, for it is our hearts that our Lord seeks. Apostle Paul makes it even plain to how to go about it in the following verses.

9. If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

10. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

Romans 10:9-10

Seek God to lead others

Therefore brethren, the good news about our Lord Jesus, who is the way be known to one and all. Let us we all be a channel of blessings to many. Moreover, there are many in this world who are yet to accept Jesus as their Lord. Therefore, seek God to equip us thoroughly so as to lead others to Him. Our submission to the Lord to do the will of the Heavenly Father is what we need to do right now. So earnestly pray God to reveal His will and walk accordingly for His glory’s sake. Let everything be done in the name of Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
