Bill and I are faithful Christians.
For those of you who may not be familiar with Christianity it means that we believe that Jesus is the SON of God and that He was sent to save the world.
Back in the Old Testament days people were required to sacrifice animals to atone for their sins. God had promised a Savior and gave many signs to watch for so that people would recognize Him when He arrived. Jesus fulfilled every single sign that God gave. By Jesus shedding His blood for us and our belief that He is indeed Gods Son, we no longer have to sacrifice animals and speak thru a preacher; we can now go directly to God and build a relationship directly with Him.
It is VERY important to know that even God does not like “religion”; He wants a “relationship” with you. Spend time with Him, talk to Him, pray for things, share your deepest thoughts, let Him know your needs, and know that He is with you today, tomorrow, and forever. There is no better feeling than knowing and feeling the peace of Jesus and that a place is waiting for you in Heaven.
Until His return, God sent His spirit – The Holy Spirit – to live in us so that we have Him with us always.
John 3:16 – 17 says:
“For God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.”
You don’t have to clean-up your act first – Jesus loves you just the way you are right this very moment. Jesus says: “Ask and it will be given; seek and you shall find; knock and the door shall be opened.” It is so simple to receive Jesus, all you have to do is ask Him into your heart, believe that He died for your sins, and He will do the rest!
