Anyone who denies the Son doesn’t have the Father, either. But anyone who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. —1 John 2:23 (NLT)
Let us start this New Year 2021 with Jesus Christ, our Lord. Let us follow his holy teaching. Let us believe that the word of God is true.
Nowadays, the world needs new apostles of the truth. Because many people deny the Father, as well as the Son. For that reason, we are going to preach the Good News. We are going to become apostles of the divine Word.
From the Scriptures, we know that we are children of God. We are His beloved ones. We are precious in his eyes. Therefore, we need to keep alive in ourselves the truth of Jesus Christ.
We came to the world not by accident. Our heavenly Father wanted us to live in the world. Moreover, He chose us as His apostles and witnesses. We are to live in the Son and in the Father and in the Holy Spirit.
We are not children of darkness and sin. We are children of light and holiness. Our beginning and end is in God. That we learn from the Scriptures.
As Christians we have the anointing of the Spirit which enables us to understand the Divine Word. We are anointed with truth and called to proclaim the truth.
So let us live in the light of Christ and read carefully his holy words with full confidence.
