Whether we are
willing to admit it or not we were Created ---
not by the random processes of nature, but by an Intelligent Being who wants to
have a relationship with each of us, and who has
already provided a way for us to be joined together with Him for eternity.
In other words, our Creator is Offering us His Greatest Gift: the gift of Eternal Life.
Creator is a Loving God He will NOT force us to receive this gift, nor will He
force His way into our lives, but rather must be invited in by each of us (Rev.
Whereupon He will honor our
request and WILL come into our
lives, and live inside of us, and quite literally begin to change us from the
inside out and make us people who are (in our innermost character) like
Himself (II Cor.
17:3) Even more importantly, He will
make us His own children
and give us
the Gift of Immortality (John
However, those who choose to ignore, and/or reject their maker
(and His calling upon their lives)
be "without excuse"
when they stand before Him At
The End of Time
19:11-20:15). For the Lord Jesus, Himself, did
something very special
for us over
2000 years ago
1:7), and it is no longer enough to just "believe in God"
and then go about our lives as we please, as though He doesn't even exist
I Pet. 1:17-23). Also, in this regard, the apostle Paul tells us
in Romans 10:13 that: "whoever will call upon the
Name of the Lord will be saved": Something that I, myself, HAD to do
many years ago in order to maintain a clear conscience before my Creator
-- and something I am VERY GLAD I did.

PS: In a nutshell
the Deal is this: We give Him our temporal life here on Earth and begin to live
for and obey Him. It also means that we are willing to acknowledge Him as our
Creator and Lord, And to confess the truth that He sent His very own Son, Jesus Christ, down to
earth to Die for our sins (in our place as it were), and ask Him to come into
our Lives, with a willingness on our part to OBEY and SERVE Him with our Time,
Talents, And Money. In return, He
promises to come
into our Lives, renew us from the inside out and give us His Spirit as a Pledge
of our (future) redemption, and to make Himself known to us in a very personal
way. This does not mean that we will henceforth
live sinless lives, but rather that we allow Him to rule over our
lives, and that over time we will sin less and less, and obey Him more and
more. Getting saved is easy, living for God afterwards can only be done
successfully by allowing Him to reign over our daily lives, and by following Him
wherever He leads us.
Feel free to send me
if you have any questions. If I know the answer I will tell you. If
I don't I will ask my friends and acquaintances, and search the world to try to
find it for you. And if I can't find it, I will ask God to help you find it
yourself -- if indeed it can be answered.
God Bless You for
reading this far, and I hope you say YES to the Lord, and that you Do indeed Ask Him
to come into
your life and to make you the kind of Person that He meant for you to be -- with
Him as your intimate and close Helper. John
