I am a Christian blogger. I write most of my blogs as if I am talking to Christian bloggers. However, the chances are that some readers are not Christians. I want to be sure I make it plain that I hope to see you all in Heaven. A place we can get to only though the sacrifice Jesus paid for our sins. So….
DO YOU WANT TO KNOW JESUS?
God loves you so much that he gave Jesus, His Son, to die for your sins.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
You can’t be good enough to redeem yourself. You must admit you are a sinner who needs to be saved by Jesus.
Romans 3 :23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”
No other way but Jesus.
Romans 3:24 “(you) are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus”
Acts 4: 12 “Salvation is found in no one else, for there
is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”
You can be saved by believing that Jesus died for your sins and rose again.
Then you “seal the deal” by saying that Jesus is your Lord.
Romans 10:8-10 “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart. That is the word of faith .. .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. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.”
I expect to remain here on “sweet aroma” for years to come, but I confess to wondering what the future might be, even for me in the present upheaval being manifest in our world. If the election allows a take-over by the Democrats, there will be giant changes away from the freedoms I have assumed would last my lifetime. Now I’m not sure. Not free to worship, not free to buy and sell (except at “approved” places) sounds a lot like we are near the days of Revelation. Be ready!!!
