I have discussed a number of very important issues of life which you may need
to think about and investigate more thoroughly. In a moment
you will have the opportunity to go to the "Library"
where you can do that. The information in the "Library"
will enable you to learn why we believe the Bible to be God's
written word to man and will show you from the Bible why we believe that the
many statements that I have made to you so far are
information and resources have also been provided there if you would
like to study some of these issues in even greater detail from other sources or if you
would like to try and find help to life's problems with solutions offered
from a Christian perspective. I would like you to know that all this
has been provided for you because God really does care about you and
wants you to enter into a lasting relationship with Him. Please email me with any questions or comments you may have so I can be of assitance to you as you seek a better understanding of God.
DOES IT ALL MEAN TO US TODAY?
Allowing that what I have said to you so far is true you might ask,
"what does it all mean to us today?" The knowledge that
there is a God in heaven who loves us and Who has revealed His will
to us should be the source of great hope and comfort and should provide
the motivation for us to begin to seek God with all our heart. First,
we can obtain forgiveness of sins and reconciliation with God making
it possible for us to begin to access and experience God's love and
goodness in our lives. Second, as God's adopted children we can begin
to learn how our heavenly father wants us to live and with His help
to be obedient to His will which is the key to our own personal happiness.
Lastly, we can know with certainty the truth about life and take hold
of the only real hope of eternal life.
HAS COMMANDED US TO BELIEVE IN HIS SON
Let me also say that the Scriptures warn us not to neglect this great
salvation which God has provided for us at tremendous cost to Himself and
to His Son Jesus Christ. I have to be honest and very careful in warning
you that God has not only invited us to receive Jesus into our lives
as our Lord and Savior but He has commanded us to believe in His Son
and repent of our sins. God's word also clearly warns that those who
fail to respond
to the gospel in repentance, faith and obedience will
stand one day condemned before God and the object of His wrath. I
urge you not to take these warnings lightly. Yes, God loves us, but
His love and kindness do not negate His holiness and righteousness
or His position as ruler and judge of all living things. In the library you can learn more about this under item four - The Gospel Message.
YOU LIKE TO RECEIVE CHRIST?
moving on allow me to address this whole issue with you on a more personal
level. Perhaps you have always believed the Bible to be God's Word but
for the first time you are now beginning to see and understand the
true nature of the Gospel message it contains. If in your heart you sense a spiritual
need that you have never really seen before and you think you would
like to give more serious consideration right now to receiving Jesus Christ
by faith as your Savior and Lord you can do that by going to another area of this site where that is explained in more detail. Click
here. If however you are not ready to make that kind of
a decision I would like to invite you to visit the "library"
and begin to investigate for yourself in more depth the things that have been explained so far.
