More Good News

My friend Jon shared this message of how God offers us forgiveness of sin and an abundant life now and for eternity in His loving hands. Jon wanted me to share this and I am glad to help spread the Word.

I have placed my trust in Jesus Christ to free me from my sin and adopt me into God's family. I pray that you do, too.




There are many people that are lost from God’s love, many who probably have been led away from Jesus through deception. I am certain in Christ Jesus that many people search for something that is empty in their own heart. They are sad, and incomplete in their lives. Perhaps they believe in no God, perhaps ALLAH, perhaps one of the many Buddhist gods. One thing is for certain. There is no excuse for us to ignore them. These people feel the emptiness only Jesus; the Prince of Peace can fill. Jesus wishes us to be His living tools, so all those who are lost may know the Joy He brings!
20For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal
power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what
has been made, so that they are without excuse.
Romans 1:20
Truly none of us deserve any good thing from God, If we expected God to look at us as we look upon each other. As the common phrase is, “Nobody is Perfect”

To the people of the world that do not believe in Adam and Eve and the original sin; even they cannot dispute that at times in their lives they have acted out or even thought in their minds that which is not good. For if God is perfect (which He is) and time is eternal (which it is) then just one time in our lives that we have fallen short of perfection, we must be held guilty by an eternally perfect God!

10as it is written,” THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE;
11THERE IS NONE WHO UNDERSTANDS,THERE IS
NONE WHO SEEKS FOR GOD; 12ALL HAVE TURNED ASIDE, TOGETHER THEY HAVE BECOME
USELESS; THERE IS NONE WHO DOES GOOD, THERE IS NOT EVEN ONE." Romans 3:10-12


You and I take joy in the free Gift from God. We can live our lives with the blessed assurance that we are with Christ and Christ with us. How horrible we were, and are. Yet in all that we are loved by God!
8But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet
sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8


Our knowledge of Jesus’ willing sacrifice, and resurrection from the dead is a flame on our hearts, and in our mouth, and seen with our eyes. For us there is no excuse. This flame is passed on to us by those before us, and can be seen being passed down all the way back to Jesus Christ Himself! We must pass this flame unto others! PRECIOUS are the words below:

16"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever
believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17"For God did not send
the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved
through Him. 18" He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe
has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only
begotten Son of God.
Saint John 3:16-18

Are we single minded? Are we arrogant; thinking we are the only ones who could be correct in our beliefs? If it is God’s will for the world to see us as such, then we must suffer such names! The world would have us to believe that what ever is good for you may not be for me. Such words dilute the perfect statement from Our Lord Jesus:

6Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to
the Father but through Me.
Saint John 14:6

Take comfort in your faith, and know that Christ loves you, and
shall return for us all. Those who believe in the one Living God, and His
Son, Jesus Christ:

2"In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would
have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 3"If I go and prepare a
place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am,
there you may be also.
Saint John 14:2-3


16"I will ask the Father, and He will give you another
Helper, that He may be with you forever; 17that is the Spirit of truth, whom the
world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him
because He abides with you and will be in you.

Saint John 14:16-17

It is good for us to be confident in Christ Jesus. To have faith in Christ is to acknowledge His awesome power. To acknowledge that He is the only God is to acknowledge His sovereignty. We should never be afraid to tell people about Jesus Christ, for He is the gift of salvation to the whole world:

8"I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord
God, " who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."
Revelation 1:8

Many people will feel this emptiness, and also know that there is a desire in their heart concerning knowing Jesus. Such a precious gift Jesus has for us. Eternal life without pain, worries, or fear. Yet a free gift to all who will believe:

9That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart
that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Romans 10:9

If you see friends or family that have such questions or feel emptiness. PLEASE tell them what you know! Pray this prayer with them and thank God for the miracle that just happened inside them, If you feel the need to pray this prayer, then do not hesitate to pray:
God, I have done wrong in my life! I believe in your son Jesus. That He died on
a cross to wash away my sins. To never be seen again in your eyes. That He rose
from the dead and now reigns in Majesty. God forgive me, and save me -Amen
