IF YOU CONFESS THAT JESUS IS LORD AND BELIEVE THAT GOD RAISED him FROM DEATH, YOU WILL BE SAVED. Becoming a Christian has many benefits while we are yet here on earth. When adversity knocks on your front door, Jesus, who was given all power by God, will intervene on your behalf and bring you through your situation safe and sound. If an untimely illness attacks you, Jesus is a healer who supersedes medical science.
There is a peace found in Him that can soothe any discomfort. Jesus is able to overcome depression, grief, and heartbreak. There is nothing He can’t defeat that could possibly overtake you in your life. Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke and put it on you, and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit; and you will find rest. For the yoke I will give you is easy, and the load I will put on you is light.” If you have not accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, why not now!
