"I pray for them, I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours." - John 17 V9

"I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life  which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me." - Galatians 2 V20

Before the creation of this world God chose His people and He ordained them to be the bride of Christ. Jesus Christ died for His own and He calls His own by name. Many people, even Christians, claim to know the Lord, but does God know these people? Now you may wonder, how can I be sure if I am in the family of God or not? Jesus said he who does the will of My Father is His own. The Holy Spirit of God will lead that person in serving the Lord. True regeneration comes from God and it is not the works of man. When one repents and turns away from his sins and receives Christ as his Lord and Saviour and fully trusts in Jesus for his redemption, Christ will save this person. Invite Christ into your heart and ask God to renew you with His Holy Spirit. We should deny ourselves and live by the will of the Father. As Paul said, 'I am crucified with Christ; it is no longer I, but Christ lives in Me'. Can you reaffirm your faith in Christ as Paul said? Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
