JESUS CHRIST is the True Light. ~ (John 1:9)

Jesus Christ is the Source and Dispenser of light.  His light outshines the sun, moon, stars, and all forms of physical lights.  Satan tries to imitate Jesus Christ with false doctrine and works, but he is not the True Light. 

If you have a relationship with Christ, His light will shine through you.  Your life will reflect His beauty, compassion, and purity, because you were ordained to be the light of the world (Matthew 5:14).  When the character of Jesus Christ is revealed in you, others will be attracted to the One whom you speak about and serve.

Is Jesus Christ the Lord of your life?

Understanding the Trinity: Three Persons in One God

The concept of the Trinity can be confusing to a new convert or an unbeliever who is aspiring to become a Christian. 

There is just ONE TRUE GOD that has ever existed. He alone is to be acknowledged, served, and worshipped, bearing in mind the trinity of persons in the Godhead. You will see references made to JESUS CHRIST (God the Son), HOLY SPIRIT (God the Holy Spirit) often on this blog. For clarification, they are One with God the Father. All three together are called GOD. There are not three Gods but three persons in one God, having the same nature and attributes. Each is distinct but inseparable. They act in complete harmony. 

The Trinity is admittedly a difficult concept for anyone to understand and explain, and will always be a mystery. However it is implied in the Old Testament (see Genesis 1:26, Genesis 11:7, Isaiah 6:8, Isaiah 9:6), and revealed in the New Testament (see Matthew 28:19, John 14:26, John 14:23, Reference Acts 5:3-5).

GOD lifts up all who are bowed down. ~ (Psalm 145:14)

God strengthens the weak and those who lack the courage to do what is required of them.  We may find ourselves in this situation when we are in an unknown territory, or have limited resources to do what we need to do.  Fear not and be of good courage; the Lord is your Strength.  Commit the situation into His hands. He will encourage, and lift you up.  

You cannot enjoy the presence of God in your life without accepting His Son, Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Everything the Father does for humanity, He does through His Son (1 Corinthians 8:6).  All His promises to us are, 'Yes', in Jesus. Our "Amen" ascends to Him through Jesus (2 Corinthians 1:20).  Make a decision to surrender all to Jesus Christ today.
