You are seen

You’ve probably felt incredibly strongly about someone, at some time: that kind of in-love excitement to see someone, or deep anxiety over someone’s safety, or an unstoppable compulsion to help someone?

Read Luke 7:11-17 (http://bit.ly/2Wv4bW8)

Luke 7:13 says that when Jesus saw a mom whose son had just died, ‘His heart overflowed with compassion’ – or He was ‘moved with compassion’ – and He raised the boy from the dead.

Jesus sees you all the time too, and He feels all the feelings. And He’s a strong God: mighty and able to act on those feelings, on your behalf.

100% certain

Is it worth following Jesus? It is easy to doubt.
Is Jesus real?
Is heaven real?

Revelation 3:7-13 (http://bit.ly/2HHvYzz) tells Christians under pressure that Jesus IS coming back.
No doubt! It is Certain, Guaranteed.

There is an open door that cannot be shut. Just as your ID guarantees citizenship in South Africa, the Holy Spirit guarantees entry into Heaven. With this certainty in Jesus, we don’t need to fear what others do to us, so let us not give up on our hope and let us not back down from the fight. We can have 100% confidence in our relationship with Him.

You are made holy

You might’ve had the embarrassing experience of finding a massive zit on your nose or forehead, the morning of a massively important event? (I totally have.)

Maybe you could let your pimples remind you of the reality that Jesus died and rose again, ‘to present [us] to Himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish.’ He died so that we would be ‘holy and without fault.’ (Ephesians 5:27 – http://bit.ly/2WveXf9)

Pimples will pass. (Eventually.)
God’s love for you never, ever will.

100% saved

What must I do to be saved?
What must I do?
How can I earn it?

Though we are completely messed up, the great news is that Jesus didn’t just take some sins away, He took them ALL away and defeated sin and death completely. Nothing stands between you and God, you are 100% restored forever. The proof – He is at the right hand of God (Hebrews 12:2 – http://bit.ly/2LwlzE3) – sitting down, because salvation is done, complete, finished. Nothing more needs to be done. Simply take hold of it and be at peace with Him.

Read Ephesians 2:8-9 (http://bit.ly/2jpgXYf)
