How do you know that Christ is alive within your heart and mind? This is a natural question to ask because you want to be sure that you have given all of yourself to Him-- serving Him and loving others as He loves. When you first fall in love with Jesus there is a historic event in your life! You experience the power of the Holy Spirit flooding your soul and you are 'righted' for holy living, serving Him, and there is a new awareness of never being alone again.
Now you have made a lifetime commitment to Him and He blesses you for that! One of His blessings is to make a way where you cannot see a way for you to live your righted life as a Christian. There are many situations where, because you are a Christian, the Holy Spirit will show you to His Way. Another blessing is to know with a surety that you belong to Christ. Faith has a lot to do with trust and when you place your trust in Jesus you are helped.
Some Christians say that pain is lifted from their souls by Jesus; and others witness that Jesus helped them to go through the pain with His help. When we call to Jesus, on His holy name, He is always there to help us to be better than we have to be, receive His healing, and prayers are heard and answered. We are Jesus' Easter people, knowing that our Resurrected Lord is alive within us.
The video today helps us to know more about who we ARE, and to understand that He has a plan for each of our lives. His purpose is not found in a certain feeling but it is found within our commitment to Him as our Savior and Lord. At Alpha Church we profess our Savior Jesus because our hearts have been marked with Christ's Cross and filled with His agape love.
Our Kid's Message today helps our children to understand how Jesus wants then to show their faith to others by doing what they say they are going to do and by loving others with not only their words but their actions too.
Alpha Church is an online church with visual worship. After worship take holy communion where Christ is the host; bring with you a small amount of something to eat and a little to drink and Christ will sanctify these. Be sure and watch the short videos that are offered at Alpha Church which are Bible based. Be encouraged through your prayers to move in closer to Jesus through online church learning, prayer, and holy communion with Jesus.
