Jesus is the Savior of the world and if you do what he says you will reap the benefits. Jesus came from the Father and if you believe in Him you will be saved. He says what God says, so apply it and reap the benefits. You can't fool God and He sees your frailty; He knows when you hate accepting what's good. Repent, choose to follow Jesus, who is God, because you really need Him to live. If you hold to Jesus' teachings (one is to believe in Him), you are really his disciple and will know and be set free by the truth. (principles from JH8:12-59)
Jesus is gentle, not loud and quarrelsome, and has inner harmony. Unbelief is against God and His goodness, and if you have it, it will come out. Unbelief puts you in the dark with evil beings. Apply the principles (one is to believe in Jesus) and join the family of God. (principles from MT12:15-50)
More people are needed to tell about Jesus, people who will freely give the blessings of Christ. God will maintain the needs of these workers. God will punish those who do not welcome or listen to you. You will be out among some devouring, cunning unbelievers, so be shrewd and innocent. Many people will hate you because of Jesus and call you evil, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. God will give you words to say to them. Then flee the scene. Disclose to people the reality of Christ that you know. Do not be afraid of those that kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Whoever acknowledges Jesus before people, Jesus will acknowledge him before God the Father. Whoever disowns Jesus before people, Jesus will disown him before God the Father. The gospel brings many conflicts between people; you must love Jesus the most and endure persecution, though this is difficult, to be worthy of relationship with Jesus. If you die for Jesus, you will find life. If you stay alive by disowning Jesus, you'll loose life. Whoever receives you because of your relationship with Jesus will receive a reward as though he had that kind of relationship with Jesus. (principles from MT9:35-10:42)
Insensitivity prevents people from really hearing and understanding God's message. Openly showing others the evidence of God in your life will be rewarded with more life from God. As we sow the word of the gospel in receptive peoples hearts, God makes it grow. (principles from MK4:10-32)
