You Belong to Jesus!

If you tell others that you belong to me, the Son of Man will tell God's angels that you are my followers. But if you reject me, you will be rejected in front of them. If you speak against the Son of Man, you can be forgiven, but if you speak against the Holy Spirit, you cannot be forgiven.

When you are brought to trial in the synagogues or before rulers or officials, don't worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say.  At that time the Holy Spirit will tell you what to say.

Luke 12:8-12

When you tell other people about Jesus, do you tell them who He is, what He did on the Cross and that He will return?  That is a good summary of fact, history and the future, but don’t forget to tell other men that you belong to Jesus!  If you reject the ownership of Jesus for your life, He won’t tell the angels that you are His follower!

Even if you deny Jesus, like Peter did in the early morning of the day that Jesus went to the Cross, you can be forgiven.  But if you speak against the Holy Spirit you separate yourself from the very one who would draw you 
back to Jesus!

It is the Holy Spirit who not only fills your heart with the fruit that only He can produce, but He also fills your mouth with the Words that will confound those who would condemn you for following Jesus!

Tell someone today about Jesus Christ, but also tell them that you belong to Him!  Then there will be angels today who will hear that you are a Christ follower!

“Lord Jesus, may Your Spirit again today put love in my heart and Your Words in my mouth and may the angels know today that I follow You.   May You, Jesus be praised forever.  Amen.”
