Matthew 14:22-33 (LSM/RV)… And immediately He compelled the disciples to step into the boat and to go before Him to the other side, while He sent the crowds away. And after He sent the crowds away, He went up to the mountain privately to pray. And when night fell, He was there alone.
Now the boat was already in the midst of the sea, being battered by the waves, for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea. And the disciples seeing Him walking on the sea, were startled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear. But immediately Jesus talked to them, saying, “Take courage. It is I. Do not be afraid.”
And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water”. And He said, “Come”. And Peter, coming down from the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But seeing the strong wind, he became frightened; and as he began to sink, he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”
And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him and said to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?” And when they got up into the boat, the wind ceased. And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God.”
Jesus Is The LifeSaver
Are you drowning? Does your life give you true happiness, or are you struggling with despair and depression? Are you a victim of drugs or alcohol? Or do you feel you have it all together… and yet sense an emptiness deep inside?
LET JESUS BE YOUR LIFE SAVER!
Matt. 18:11… For the Son of man has come- to save that which was lost.
The world offers false hope with Satan (the prince of the darkness of this world) enticing people with drugs, alcohol, sex, money, and power–
But Jesus said– ‘What will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world and loses his soul?’ Matt.16:26
The Lord is not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. 1 Peter 3:9
What is repentance? It is the willingness to turn from sin– when we realize that we are all sinners on a runaway roller coaster to hell! How do we escape? ONLY THROUGH JESUS. John 14:6… I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father but by Me.
The Bible is God’s Holy Word
The Bible tells the story of God’s love for mankind, and has been proven to be without error… no other book even come close (see apologetics).
The heart of the Bible is Jesus– the Savior of all mankind. In its pages, unfolds the true account of the terrible price God paid that would we would not have to burn in hell for all eternity (because of Adam’s sin… and our sin).
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son– that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness, for by his wounds you were healed. 1 Peter 2:24
You might say– ‘How can I be forgiven and freed from my past?’
He whom the Son sets free, is free indeed! John 8:36 How? Pray this prayer… and mean every word–
Lord Jesus– I know I am a sinner, going to hell… lost without you. I believe you are God the Son, born of a virgin, and that you died on the cross for my sins, and therefore you paid in full, the price for my salvation. I believe you rose from the dead, never to die again. I believe you are coming soon to take over this world and destroy Satan and all who have rejected you.
Forgive me for all my sins, cleanse me with your precious blood, and deliver me from the bondage of the evil one. I turn away from all known sin– and believe you will keep me free, as I continue to trust in you. Fill me with your Holy Spirit. I belong to you… I will live for you… Thank You for saving me. In Jesus’ name– Amen.
This the victory that overcomes the world… even our faith. 1 John 5:4
Faith comes by hearing; and hearing comes by the word of God. Romans 10:17
When you are born again– you have:
- Eternal Life- 1 John 5:11… … God has given us eternal life, and this life is in the Son.
- The Armor of God- Ephesians 6:11… Put on the full armor of God, that you may to able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.
- The Holy Spirit- Acts 1:8… But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.
- The Holy Bible- Psalm 119:105… Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
- Prayer Power- Luke 11:9… Ask and it shall be given, seek and you will find, knock and it shall be open unto you.
Psalm 1:1-3 (LSM/RV)… Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand on the path of sinner, nor sit in the seat of mockers; rather his delight is in the law of Jehovah, and in His law he meditates by day and by night. And he will be like a tree transplanted beside streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season, and whose foliage does not wither; and everything he does prospers.

John 14:1-3 (LSM/RV)… Do not let your heart be troubled; believe into God, believe also into Me. In My Father’s house are many abodes; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I am coming again, and will receive you to Myself, so that where I am you also may be.
Isaiah 58:6-12 (LSM/RV)… Is this not the fast that I choose, to loosen the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry, and to bring the wandering poor home; when you see the naked, to cover him,and not to hide yourself from your own flesh? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your recovery will speedily spring forth. And your righteousness will go before you; the glory of Jehovah will guard you from behind. Then you will call, and Jehovah will answer; you will cry out, and He will say, ‘Here, I AM.’
If you remove the yoke from your midst, the pointing of the figure and the speaking of wickedness, and if you draw out your soul to the hungry and satisfy the desires of the afflicted; then your light will rise in darkness, and your gloom will be like midday; and Jehovah will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in the dry times, and strengthen your bones; and you will be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not deceive. And those of you will rebuild the ancient ruins; you will raise up the foundations of generation upon generation; and you will be called repairers of the breach, restorers of the paths in which to dwell.
