God Loves You!
The Bible says, "God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life"
The problem is that . . .
All of us have done, said, or thought things that are wrong in that they destroy us spiritually, mentally, and/or physically. Thoughts lead to subsequent actions that either bless our lives or curse our lives. You loved one, were created for a purpose to contribute greatly to the world in which you were born. You were created to co-create with the Almighty - and acquire and thereby use His intellectual, and spiritual, attributes, enjoy being taught by Him, experience His tremendous love, and inherit His incomprehensible wisdom and power.
You were given the precious gifts of WILL and of CHOCE. When we subscribe to thoughts and behaviors that destroy others, and us, we are negating God's purpose for our ultimate well- being (and the well-being of others).
You were created to have joy, peace, contentment, prosperity, and to be whole and complete spiritually, mentally, and physically.
By our ignorance and/or deliberate decisions to ignore God, and the universal laws that were established to bless and govern our lives, we negate and corrupt the purpose for which we were created.
The Bible says, "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
Sin is missing God's intended purpose for your life, as an archer misses the intended target. If we look at our world today, we can attest to the results of leading a self-directed and ungodly life.
These are a few examples of what is known as sin:
- Jealousy (envy, Covetousness)
- Suspicion and Distrust
- Substance Abuse
- Acts of Violence and Murder
Is there any good thing that can be derived from these thoughts and actions?
God is perfect and holy, and our sins separate us from God forever.
The Bible says, "The wages of sin is death."
God looked down upon his children, and saw that they could not within themselves and with their own power comply with His holy will for their lives. He provided a way for us.
The good news is that, about 2,000 years ago,
He gave us His Son who would empower us to live as He intended.
God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. (Jesus literally took our place when he died on the cross). Jesus was with God in the Beginning - He was the Word of God and created all things - There was nothing created that was not created without Him - (1 John)
Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. "God demonstrates His own love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us."
Jesus rose from the dead and now He lives in heaven with God His Father. He offers us the gift of eternal life -- of living forever with Him in heaven if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me."
God reaches out in love to you and wants you to be His child. "As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His name." You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and come in to your life as your Lord and Savior.
It is written that if you shall believe in your heart, and confess with your mouth that Jesus is the Christ and your Lord that you shall be saved. If you want to accept Christ as Savior and turn from your sins, you can ask Him to be your Savior and Lord by praying a prayer like this:
"Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I believe that you died and rose on the 3rd day as the Bible stated. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior. I want to serve you always."
If you have just prayed this prayer -
YOU HAVE JUST MADE A QUALITY DECISION FOR YOUR LIFE!

LET US SPEND ETERNITY IN MY KINGDOM TOGETHER
"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. I and the Father are one."
John 10: 27-30:
FOR THINE IS THE KINGDOM AND THE POWER AND THE GLORY!
TO COMFORT YOU TODAY
When your heart is sad and lonely, and your friends seem far away, Turn to Him Who is all holy, and He'll drive your cares away. When a dear one seems to fail you, when for friendship true you long, confide in Him Who is all-true, and He'll right your every wrong. Jesus' heart is your true refuge, to Him you can always flee, even when your hopes are sinking, He will then a True Friend be. He will soothe your lonely spirit, He will love and bless and say, " Come to Me and I will comfort you, today, and every day."
HE GIVETH MORE GRACE
"He giveth more grace as the burdens grow greater, He sendth more strength as the labors increase. To added affliction, He added His mercy, to multiplied trials - His multiplied peace. When we have exhausted our store of endurance, when our strength has failed ere the day is half done, when we reach the end of our horded resources, Our Father's full giving is only begun. His love has no limits, His grace has no measure, His power no boundary known to men. And out of His infinite riches In Jesus, He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again."
MAY YOU BE COMFORTED TODAY IN KNOWING GOD TRULY LOVES YOU!
