God Loves You!



Friend, please don’t miss it. Let it sink deep into your mind and heart. No matter who you are or what you have or have not done, according to John 3:16, GOD LOVES YOU!

 “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.”   

God loves us so much (as the pictures below will show)  that He sent His Son from heaven to earth to die on a cross to save us from our sins and to give us eternal life. Jesus rose again the third day and “He ever lives to make intercession for us.” If you are seeking Him, He is seeking you more; “Draw nigh to God and He will draw nigh to you.”  (James 4:8)

Please pause to observe it closely…and think about the great price God paid for your redemption.

The Whole World Needs to Know about John 3:16!


But wait, there’s more…

 “…He rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” 1 Cor. 15:4


…and there’s still more

“…Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven.” Acts 1:11

If Jesus came back today or if you should die today, would you be ready to meet Him? By the mercy and grace of God, you can be! God loves the whole world! He is “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” Those who continue to reject Jesus will be lost, but those who repent of their sins and trust in Him will be saved.  If you have not already done so, please turn from your sins and put your trust in Jesus today; He loves you very much and wants to save you now! And remember, God listens when we pray and mean what we pray… I believe that’s the basic message of the Bible.

 Who is a Real Christian? What makes a Christian?  The answer is actually so simple it can escape us.  —by Gary Moore

How can you tell who a Christian really is?  Is the clue to be found in the way they dress?  Is it in the way they talk – the words they choose?  Does it have to do with their level of education or income, or lack thereof?  Is it determined by the people with whom they are friends?  Can it be determined by their political affiliation, or lack of one, or would they be non-political?

The answer is actually so simple it can escape us.  A Christian is any person who trusts in Jesus Christ (see Romans 10:9-13).  Placing trust in Jesus has a profound impact on who we are.  The impact is so great it is described in Scripture as a re-birth.  Through the work of the Holy Spirit we are placed through adoption into a right relationship with God and with our fellow human beings.  This is all accomplished by God’s grace – not something we can achieve by any work or effort or striving on our own resources.  It is a gift God gives us because He loves us.

As we live in relationship with God, and grow in that relationship, our lives will become characterized by the fruit of the Holy Spirit (see Galatians 5:22-23).  Our transformed lives are intended to bear testimony to God’s power, and bring glory to Him.  We are meant to live as Christ’s ambassadors – in our world (2 Corinthians 5:17-20).

It is really a matter that we are enabled to participate in God’s life (see 2 Peter 1:3-8).  We are, by God’s grace, able to share in God’s nature.  As the Holy Spirit works with us, and we learn to live God’s way today, we can anticipate entering into the fullness of that life for eternity.

So to go back to the start of this article, some of the things mentioned indeed may be different in the life of a Christian.  For example, the words we choose should be different as we grow in the fruits of the Spirit.  Love, grace, purity, kindness and truth should characterize our speech.  As we mature in Christ, our words and deeds will be different.  There are externals that may indeed be indicators of Christianity.  However, at its heart, it is the total reliance on trusting Jesus Christ that defines our Christianity.

That reliance on Him results in the changes of practice and belief that will characterize a believer growing in the faith, but those results aren’t what make the Christian.  Placing our trust in Jesus Christ is what defines a Christian.

It is as simple – and as profound – as that!

Become a Christian
Many people are looking for God. If you’re one of those people, we’d like to share with you that the Bible has what you are seeking. It contains answers to life’s vital questions, and—most important—can help you understand how to have a right relationship with God. Here are some selected verses:

God Loves You 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. —John 3:16

But God commendeth his love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. —Romans 5:8

All Are Sinners For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. —Romans 3:23

As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one. —Romans 3:10

God’s Remedy for Sin For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. —Romans 6:23

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. —John 1:12

All May Be Saved Now Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him. —Revelation 3:20(a)

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. —Romans 10:13

But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. —John 20:31

Receive Christ as Your Savior Now…Pray the Following Prayer

Confessing to God that I am a sinner, and believing that the Lord Jesus Christ died for my sins on the cross and was raised for my justification, I now receive and confess Him as my personal Savior.

Seek a Church

After making your decision to receive Christ, we encourage you to prayerfully seek a local Bible-believing church that will assist you in growing as a new Christian. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen. —II Peter 3:18

Find Assurance as a Believer

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. —Romans 10:9
Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. —John 5:24
