The author and finisher of our faith and our lives is Jesus Christ. If you haven’t come to know Him as your Savior, I encourage you to seek out a Bible-teaching church and learn more about Him. He died to pay for your sins, all you need to do is accept His grace and the gift of salvation through belief in His atonement for you.

Follow these Scriptures, seek Jesus in the Bible, and give your heart and your life to Him. Follow Him and learn to be more like Him. When the Trumpet sounds you will be taken to be with Him forever. That is the reward that we, as Christians, seek to have. This life and the “stuff” in it is temporary but life with Him is an eternity in His love for us.


How can you be saved from an eternity of punishment in hell? Believe in Jesus as your Savior and give your heart to Him. Following Him from that day forward. It sounds easy, doesn’t it? If you feel the Spirit touching your heart and convicting you of your sins so that you know you need Jesus, please don’t turn away from His call on your life. Not one of us is guaranteed to see tomorrow, don’t put your salvation off because you may not have a chance again to “get right with God”.

Some people may say that I am trying to scare you into becoming a Christian. Maybe I am but consider that your life is just a moment in time compared to even one million years. Your decision about Jesus and your salvation through your belief in Him is the only decision that will make your first million years in eternity to be with Him in heaven. You don’t want to consider that amount of time in hell because even if you have friends there, you won’t be having fun at all. Hell is a place of punishment meant for Satan and the fallen angels that followed him. Mankind wasn’t meant to go there at all but many people will.

Jesus Christ came to live a sinless life and to be God’s “spotless Lamb” that could take the sins of the world on Himself and make atonement for them all. Whether you believe in Him for your salvation or not is your choice. Some people will feel the Holy Spirit convicting them of their sins but they will put it off until they can “get right” with God…but you can’t. We can’t do anything that will pay for our sins because Jesus was the only One Who could do that. You can’t pray enough or go to church enough or give enough money to atone for your sins only the blood of Jesus and your belief in Him as your Savior can do that.

Read the book of John and the book of Romans in the New Testament. If you have to, read them a second time but don’t put off your salvation because you may be involved in a wreck tonight or tomorrow and it may take your life before you get a chance to give your heart to Jesus. God loves you but He cannot stand our sinful lives. Do you sin after accepting Jesus? Absolutely! But…you are covered by His blood so just ask for His forgiveness and mean it by turning away from the sinful ways that are still hanging around.

All churches have hypocrites in them but the best ones have forgiven hypocrites.

God loves you!


The work that God sent Jesus to do was finished on the cross, no amount of work or money, or effort is required by us. We can’t add anything to the work that He completed. Jesus came to bring salvation to those who would take hold of it, yet there are many who will not because they want their own “way” to get to eternity. The problem with this thinking is that all of us have eternity ahead of us, yet it is the quality of our eternity that we should seek after.

Some have believed the lie that after you die there is no enjoyment or feeling even though the Bible says that we do have joy and life to enjoy into eternity with God. The life that we have here on Earth is fleeting and less than we expect it to be regardless of the amount of fame or money that we have. It seems that, in many ways, those who have little are the most content in this life. They have fewer “problems”, especially mental issues. They may have more medical problems than some who can afford treatment options but most of the “poor” have greater faith in God. They depend on Him for their satisfaction in life and for their provisions in this life as well.

So, when Jesus said that the poor are blessed…He meant it. God does bless them because they depend upon Him for many things in their life. Those who supposedly “have it all” don’t search for God and His provision because they feel that they don’t need Him. Yet, when some diagnosis comes along that their wealth can’t provide an avenue toward a cure…that is when they seek out prayer and fellowship with people who have placed their faith in God.

No, there is nothing that we can contribute toward our salvation except to accept it when it is offered to us by faith. God provides that to each of us and when we feel it and know that we need it, we shouldn’t turn away from it because the opportunity may not come again. I pray that everyone who reads this will consider the sacrifice that God went through to bring the possibility of salvation to each of us.
