Are you a “doubting Thomas” Christian – unless I see Jesus work and can touch Him, I will never believe? If Jesus gave you the evidence you were demanding I can promise your world will be rocked. But this is not how faith works. It’s not how Jesus works. He says: “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” 1 John 5: 11-12
Though you have not seen, will you believe?
Jesus’ identity stirs something deep within your soul. His Gospel cuts through false religions and pierces the heart. If the Spirit is convicting you of sin and convincing you of the truth about Jesus, turn towards Him in repentance and confess:
Jesus, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God, born to save God’s people. You are the perfect pattern who mediates between God and man and provides an example to follow. You are the sacrifice in our place who offered Yourself for the sins of the world. You are the sinless Son who rose from the dead in vindication of Your identity. You will return to judge the living and the dead. I repent of my sin. I repent of my pride in trying to fix my own brokenness. I repent of looking to other people and things to save me. You alone can rescue me. I believe You lived the life I couldn’t, died the death I deserved, and rose to life for my sin’s forgiveness. Please save me from the evil one, sin, and death. Lord, I desire to empty myself, to die to myself, to find true life in You. I place my faith in You. Give Your resurrection life to me that I might triumph over the powers of darkness and walk in Your light. Empower me for Your will to make disciples of all nations until that final day when I will be fully redeemed.
Where do I go from here?
