I can't have a Chrisian blogg without some kind of message for those who are not saved
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
If you don't have Jesus as your personal savior please know that He loves you so dearly.
He wants a relationship with you. He is not a distant God that sits in Heaven just waiting to strike with a lightening bolt if you do someting wrong.
He knows us better than we know ourselves. He knew us before we were even born. He knew we would be fault filled human beings and we would make mistakes. We sin. We in our unsaved flesh are incapable of pleasing God because He is holy. He cannot be near sin. We all have sinned at some point and probably more than once. We fall short and our actions and works will never be enough to get us to heaven.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
God knew this that is why he sent his son Jesus. Jesus died on the cross to be the sacrifice that would end all sacrifices. We no longer need to worry about that lightening bolt. God wants to adopt us into His family and make us His own. When we ask Jesus into our hearts we become a part of the family of God. Then His mercy and grace covers our life. We may stumble and fall but he is there to help us get back up and continue on.
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
His love is so vast and unrelenting that He will always be there as our Father and best friend. I can say from experience he will never leave you. I always have had him to lean on in the worst of trials. When I suffered from depression he was there to stop me from taking my life. When my marriage was falling apart He was there to guide me, help me pick up the pieces, and even ressurected my marriage. I have many more testimonies of God's mercy and grace in my life. Just read my blog.
If nothing else sinks in then go by my testimony. I am alive today because of His deep love for me. I have a Father that cares about every detail of our lives. My earthly father was not perfect and made mistakes but God, the creator of the universe has our best interest at heart and cannot make mistakes." He is not a man that he should lie". He promises he will "never leave you nor forsake you"
If you want to ask Jesus into your heart and be saved all you have to do is pray. Like you are talking to a person standing right there in the room, because that is how close He is, talk to Him.
You can say "Lord I know I am a sinner and fall short.
I am asking you Jesus to come into my heart to be my Lord and Savior."
Pretty simple.He is as close as the mention of his name.
