Our Meeting Today... Is not altogether by chance. Some time ago we met a remarkable Person, so great and outstanding that it has become our Joy to introduce Him to others. The great tragedy is that so many know about Him, but so few know Him personally. Perhaps you have already guessed that we are speaking of Jesus Christ.
To some, He is little more than a word of blasphemy, to others a source of embarrassment, but to those who know Him, He is Wonderful!!!
Some of you might recall the Apostle Paul persecuted the early Christians, but after he met Jesus, his life was transformed. He wrote, "Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners*of whom I am the worst." 1 TIMOTHY 1:15
It hurts our pride to admit we are sinners, but it is wonderful when we experience the power of Jesus Christ to forgive our sins and heal our hearts.
When we once accept Him as Savior and Lord, we make an amazing discovery.
Jesus did not come to make us stuffy saints or miserable mortals, but He came to give us LIFE - the very fullest and richest. Listen to Jesus' own words:
" I have come that they may have life, and that they may have life more abundantly." JOHN 10:10
Dear Friend, whatever may have been your disappointment with people, disillusionment with life, and confusion with religion, let us assure you that this is not the fault of Jesus Christ. He has been misrepresented, betrayed, denied, and neglected, but He stands majestically, in Love, pleading with every single person,
" Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
He speaks to you today. Do you personally know Him?
Believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay for your sins, and make Him the Lord of your life. Read the following Scripture carefully. Then believe it and act upon it. We promise you He will change your life!!!
" If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
The choice is yours. Only you can make the decision whether or not to follow Jesus Christ. But He is calling you NOW...
" Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me."
If GOD is calling you, and you believe (Trust) with your whole heart, mind and soul...
That You need HIM in your life...
Go to God in prayer...
"Lord, God, I come to You as a sinner, believing with my whole heart, mind and soul, that You sent Your only Son, Jesus Christ, who was born of a virgin, died on the cross for my sins, rose again on the third day and now sits at Your right hand in heaven. I ask that You will forgive me of all my sins, and I repent (turn) from them. I ask for Your Holy Spirit to come into my life to guide me, lead me, change me and show me Your will for my life. I now trust You as My Personal Savior and Lord. I will follow Your commands from Your Word and live my life for You. I thank You for the new life, for forgiveness that only You can give me and trust You in all things.
In Jesus' Name, Amen."
