John 3 vs 16 says for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. This verse is talking about the sacrificial love that God showed to us by sending Him to the world to die on our behalf.
In John 10 vs 10b the Lord Jesus Christ says, ‘I have come so that you may have life and life in abundance.’ The verse emphasises that salvation is for those who choose to believe in Him, meaning an eternal life is possible to those who identify with Him.
Romans 10 vs 9 teaches us that if you confess with your mouth that Christ is Lord and you believe in your heart that he was raised from the dead, you surely shall be saved.
God, however, expects us to love him back as shown in Matthew 6 vs 33 which says seek ye first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and all those things shall be added unto you.
It is my encouragement for you to seek the Kingdom of God first. If you put Him first in your heart and life, all things will be easy. If you put Jesus Christ first, you will fully enjoy in your life, family and your possessions.

Psalms 23 vs 1 says the Lord is my shepherd I shall not lack, so the question to you now is do you acknowledge Jesus Christ as your shepherd?
Some people allow their possessions or even people to be their shepherds as aptly shown by Psalms 20 vs 7 which says some trust in chariots and some in horses (vamwe vanovimba nengoro nemabhiza). Horses and chariots in today’s context mean a lot of thins including money, physical strength, education and political power. These things, however, cannot serve your soul, neither can they serve your body if real trouble comes.
But if we allow God to be our shepherd, we will never lack or be sick but we shall have life. Let us trust in the Lord all the time and allow him to lead you. Psalms 1 vs 2-3 says a wise person’s delight is in the law of the Lord and in His law does he meditate day and night. Such a person would be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, which gives its fruit at the right time, whose leaves will be ever green and he will do well in all his undertakings.
This means if we trust in the Lord, we will be like trees planted by the rivers of water and whose leaves do not wither. If we are in Christ, we become fruitful in all facets of our lives. And everything we touch or do will surely not fail
It is therefore my encouragement for us not to put our trust in men or other things that we have. The companies we have built and the wealth we have amassed are not the doors to true happiness, but His word lives forever.
