After His baptism, as soon as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened to Him and He saw the Spirit of God coming down in the form of a dove. Matthew 3:16
We have that same Spirit within us at the point of accepting Christ into our hearts, our lives. Showing others by our baptism who we put our trust in. Let that spirit shine within us! Jesus as mortal man trusted the Father with His life, from that day forward He began to teach others, continuing to be our example.
They said to Jesus, “Sir, we know what an honest teacher you are. You always tell the truth and don’t budge an inch in the face of what others think, but teach the ways of God. Luke 20:21
Jesus told him, “I am the Way—yes, and the Truth and the Life. No one can get to the Father except by means of me. John 14:6
Instead, we will lovingly follow the truth at all times—speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly —and so become more and more in every way like Christ who is the Head of his body, the Church. Under his direction, the whole body is fitted together perfectly, and each part in its own special way helps the other parts, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. Ephesians 4:15
Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous; love is never boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take offence, and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people’s sins but delights in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
If you want favor with both God and man, and a reputation for good judgment and common sense, then trust the Lord completely; don’t ever trust yourself. In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success. Proverbs 3:5-6
Those who trust in the Lord are steady as Mount Zion, unmoved by any circumstance. Psalm 125:1
He will keep in perfect peace all those who trust in him, whose thoughts turn often to the Lord! Isaiah 26:3
the only condition is that you fully believe the Truth, standing in it steadfast and firm, strong in the Lord, convinced of the Good News that Jesus died for you, and never shifting from trusting him to save you. This is the wonderful news that came to each of you and is now spreading all over the world. And I, Paul, have the joy of telling it to others. Colossians 1:23
But Christ, God’s faithful Son, is in complete charge of God’s house. And we Christians are God’s house—he lives in us!—if we keep up our courage firm to the end, and our joy and our trust in the Lord. Hebrews 3:6
Do not let this happy trust in the Lord die away, no matter what happens. Remember your reward! Heb 10:35
We know how happy they are now because they stayed true to him then, even though they suffered greatly for it. Job is an example of a man who continued to trust the Lord in sorrow; from his experiences we can see how the Lord’s plan finally ended in good, for he is full of tenderness and mercy. James 5:11
There are many ways in which God works in our lives, but it is the same God who does the work in and through all of us who are His. 1 Corinthians 12:6
So you see, it isn’t enough just to have faith. You must also do good to prove that you have it. Faith that doesn’t show itself by good works is no faith at all—it is dead and useless. James 2:17
“Our Spiritual Purpose… can not be rushed, shorten, or simplified… it has to be experience.” A.Kiane Kramarik
It’s an individual choice to make everyday, to accept the Lord Jesus into our hearts. And follow His ways, His truth, His life till we hear the call, the sound of the heavenly trumpet.
Blessings to all!
