JESUS CHRIST loves you and so do WE

Christian Perspective

Motorcycle season has again arrived and I am excited to be riding again. I have always preferred using my bike for my primary mode of transportation. For a productive and safe season, certain preparations must be made, such as ensuring tires are good and properly inflated, motor is tuned and running properly with clean oil and plenty of gas. Also, wearing good protective gear is recommended. Good preparations always ensure the best possible results. 

Good preparations are important in all aspects of life. We do what is necessary to maintain good health, care for our families and protect our investments. But how much preparation is made regarding eternity? One thing is certain, one day we will all pass through the portal called death. Hebrews 9:27,28 says "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement: so Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation." 

John 3:16 says "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." 

In Romans 1:16, the apostle Paul writes "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes..."

God has made all the preparations for eternity; salvation or judgement. 

1 John 5:13 says "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may believe on the name of the Son of God."

John 3:36 says "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."

Salvation or judgement! What is your choice?

Praying that all would come to Christ,

"The house of the wicked shall be overthrown: but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish. There is a way which seems right onto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." - Proverbs 14:11, 12

God will be the God He chooses to be in spite of any attempt by man (or any other of God's creations) to mold him into something that he is not. He created us; we did not invent Him!

God does not require our belief to exist, but our very existence depends on Him. We see the issues of life and death as pertaining to the time that we spend on this earth in the flesh, but God's view of life and death is different. According to the Bible we are created in the image of God. God is eternal, and so are we. The question is what happens after physical death. There are many different religious organizations that claim to have an answer to that question, and yet they are all different answers. Is God the author of confusion? Or is it possible that the devil, Satan, is the author of all the confusion in the world? Satan is known as a destroyer, the deceiver, and the author of all lies. He is filled with hatred for all the things of God and desires one thing more than all else and that is to be worshiped above God.

So, what is truth, and where do you find it? It is possible to believe something your entire life and still be wrong. We determined the things we believe by listening to what others say, sometimes because of a gut feeling. But there is another way. We can search for the evidence to support what we believe. Since God is not the author of confusion, it is certain that he has provided the evidence to support His truth. Are you willing to look for it? There is more evidence to support the historical accuracy of the bible than for any other book from antiquity. It's not hard to find. If you have a computer or even an iPhone, the search is not hard to find the source of and historical evidence supporting any and all religions.

"And if it seems evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom you will serve; whether the gods which your father's served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." - Joshua 24:15
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,  that whomsoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." - John 3:16

What do you believe?

As for me and my house, we will follow the LORD

"And we know all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." - Romans 8:28

First of all God's purpose is that all should come to repentance and be with him in heaven for all eternity. That said, I sometimes have trouble with the "all things work together for good" part of this verse. There is nothing in the Bible that promises anybody a great life filled with joy and wealth. I repented and turned to Christ for forgiveness for my sins over 30 years ago. That doesn't make me special, or better than anyone else; only forgiven. I'm not saying this to complain, but this past year ain't been easy. I got hit by a car last June and my bike got totaled. I got pretty busted up too. Found out two weeks ago that my collarbone is still broken so last Friday I had surgery to put a metal plate in my shoulder to fix that. And it's only April 1.

Anyway, I'm healing and getting better each day, And praising God that I'm still alive and able to tell others about his grace. It looks like I won't be riding again this year but my heart and my prayers are with all who do for your safety and security on the roads. But even more important, my hearts desire and prayer is for the eternal security of your soul, when this life is past. Look to Jesus and live! 

In loving service to my savior Jesus Christ,

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast." - Ephesians 2:8 & 9

Nothing takes God by surprise. Nothing is hidden from Him, not even the deepest secrets hidden in our hearts and minds.

Sin separates us from God who is holy. Holy means perfect in goodness and righteousness. We all know what sin is because we all know when we do something that is wrong. We can't hide it from ourselves and we can't hide it from God.

Romans 5:8 says that "God showed His love for us, in that , while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

This is the perfect demonstration of grace. Grace is receiving what we don't deserve and not receiving what we do deserve. We deserve eternal separation from this Holy God because of our sin, yet God offers us the free gift of salvation. But this free gift of salvation can only be be received through Jesus Christ, who is God our savior.

We all must choose. There is no middle ground. Believe and receive God's gift of grace or don't believe and reject this free gift. No-one can make this choice for you.

Admit to God that you are a sinner and ask Him for forgiveness. He can change your life and your eternal destination if YOU let Him.

In John 14:6, Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man can come to the Father, but by Me".

Excited to know Him and joyfully awaiting His return,
