The Words of Jesus Give LIFE
The words of Jesus give LIFE to those who BELIEVE them. We read on John 6:63 Jesus said:
“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. 64“But there are some of you who do not believe.”
The words of Jesus bring life. a person who hears the words of Jesus and who believes is immediately changed. The power of God changes him, he is born again, he becomes a new person; he is not a sinner any more, because he believed.
There is POWER in the words of Jesus because as Jesus said, His words are Spirit and LIFE. But very few believe and that is why the they are not changed. That is why the words of Jesus have no effect on them. Many say that they believe in Jesus, but they have not changed. There is no change in their lives, they are still sinners, they are like the rest of the world. They never believed and that is why the words of Jesus never had any effect on them.
If you believe the words of Jesus you will be changed and if you keep on obeying, you will constantly be changed, you will be transformed into His likeness.
Jesus said:"Repent and be baptized" and He will give His Holy Spirit in those who believe and who obey Him, and they will be changed. They will be changed through their relationship with Him. They will be changed through the words that He speaks to them and because they believe, they will obey Him. They will change and they will change the world.
If there is no change in you after you have read or heard the words of Jesus, then you have never believed. Most people never believe. Most believers never changed because they never believed.
Have you believed in Jesus Christ? Do you believe His words? Have you read His words in the gospel, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John? Did you believe and have you changed? Were you changed? Are you changing the world around you because the words of Jesus are alive in you? Do you believe?
May Jesus bless you.
