You are Jesus, my Lord, my Savior and my God!

“Who do people say I am?”
“Well,” they replied, “some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah, and others say you are one of the other ancient prophets risen from the dead.”

Then he asked them, “But who do you say I am?”

Who exactly is Jesus to you?

Do not Worry!

"So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’   For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.  But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.   Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."  (Matthew 6: 31 -  34 NIV)

Have you noticed that unbelievers worry a great deal?

Blessed are the poor in spirit; for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

“Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal.   Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal.   Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be."  (Matthew 6: 19-21 NLT)

Do you know people who store treasures for themselves on earth?  How did their lives end?

Abba Father knows exactly what you need and when you need it.

“When you pray, don’t babble on and on as the Gentiles do....  Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!"  (Matthew 6: 7-8 NLT)

Ask boldly with confident expectation and you will receive.

"When they had crossed over, Elijah said to Elisha,
“Ask for whatever I may do for you, before I am taken from you.”
Elisha answered, “May I receive a double portion of your spirit.”  (2 Kings 2: 9 RM)

The above word invites us to ask boldly and confidently for what we need.  "Ask and you shall receive."

Have mercy on me, O God, in your goodness.

 “You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy.   But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!"  (Matthew 5: 43-44 NLT)

Do you think it is impossible to love your enemy?   Try this:  Pray for your enemy every day for one year (365 days).  I have done this and I guarantee that it works.

Give and there will be gifts for you.

"Give to the one who asks of you, and do not turn your back on one who wants to borrow."  (Matthew 5: 42 NABRE)

When you see a beggar at the street corner or any other location, what do you do?  "He is lazy.  He should get a job."  Or,   "He will use the money to buy booze."  What does Jesus say?
