Jesus above all, became our example of faith, and spent most of His ministry demonstrating the power of faith in God, that we can trust God, that He is good, that His thoughts toward us are love. Jesus said: “ask and you will receive, that your joy may be full” (John 16:24).
“He who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6).
We enter the teachings of Jesus, because this is the Way and the power of the Holy Spirit to salvation. But it is our faith toward God that saves us.
If we put our trust in God, we will be saved from the sins that separate us from abundant life, the life that God desires for us.
“I have come that they may have life; and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).
Just as Abraham, the father of faith, followed God’s instructions and left his country to go to a place he did not know, we must follow God to the place He has prepared for us.
The path to salvation and abundant life begins with baptism.
