CARROT BANANA SMOOTHIE

OUR SPIRITUAL FOOD
“Give not because of exchange. Give because you want to beautify people’s life and empower them, not like a transaction. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned (Matthew 12:37).

A man will go either to heaven or to hell on the basis of his confession; what he said or
didn’t say. If he spoke the words that God said to speak for salvation, he’d be catapulted into salvation and will eventually go to heaven. But if he didn’t, he’d go to hell, and that’s not because of what he did wrong, but because of what he didn’t say.
The acknowledgement and confession of the Lordship of Jesus Christ is the God-ordained way to receive salvation.
