Trust in Jesus

My Scarlett girl :)
This past week I've found myself asking "Who can I trust?" and "How do I know who to trust?". There are certain people in positions of authority that we automatically feel like we can trust, and we should be able to trust those people.

So when you confide in one of those people and then not only do they break that trust, but they shatter it, it will knock you down. That's where I found myself a few days ago. Shock, disbelief, betrayed--all emotions I felt. I confided in someone that I had automatically trusted and they took advantage of that. It knocked me down for sure. But I found that when that happened--when it knocked me down--I found myself on my knees even more than before.

Here's one thing I know--no matter how much I question who I can trust here on this earth, I can always trust in Jesus. He never changes. He is always who He says He is. He's walking through it with me every step of the way.

I heard a song on XM's "The Message" this week by Third Day and the chorus stood out to me. It said:

I trust in Jesus, my great Deliverer 
My strong Defender, the Son of God 
I trust in Jesus, blessed Redeemer 
My Lord forever, the Holy One, the Holy One

No matter what happens here in this life, I can always trust in Him.

  1. WHEN JESUS SPOKE?

    Do you believe what Jesus said to be the truth or do you believe the interpretations of others?

    Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.

    Jesus said "Has been baptized shall be saved."

    Many interpreters have said that Jesus meant that they had been saved the minute they believed and that they should be baptized later, as a testimony of their faith.

    Should you trust your eyes when you see what Jesus said?
    Should you trust your ears and eyes when hear interpreters and preachers teach something Jesus did not say?

    When Jesus was alive He forgave sins of whom ever He wished to prove that He had authority to forgive sin.(Matthew 9:6)

    Matthew 9:2 And they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed.Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralytic, "Take courage, son;your sins are forgiven."

    Were the paralytics' sins forgiven the very minute his friends had faith? No, they had faith before they brought the paralytic before Jesus, yet he was still in his sins. The paralytic did not have sins forgiven until Jesus made the proclamation, "Your sins are forgiven."

    Jesus has made a proclamation for us, "He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved." Jesus never said, "He who has faith only will be saved."

    JESUS NOR THE APOSTLE DID NOT STATE THAT MEN SHOULD BE IMMERSED IN WATER BECAUSE THEIR SINS HAVE ALREADY BEEN FORGIVEN.

    Under the New Covenant sins are always forgiven because of faith and baptism.
