Believe

Love saw our  need…

Beyond the questions of Nicodemus the teacher.
The woman caught in adultery.
The thief on the cross.
Saul the Pharisee and murderer.
The lost one in church, religious, but no relationship.

The Cross of Calvary is an invitation to all.
It doesn’t matter who we are or what we have done.

The religious teacher who seeks Jesus is born again,
and receives new life of God’s Spirit.
The immoral released from guilt and shame
now walks with a pure heart.
The thief enters paradise
and lives with Jesus forever.
The Pharisee paroled from hell,
receives new life and vision.
The religious rebel redeemed from self-works
now walks with the Living God.
If we want to know God and live with Him eternally,
we need only look to the Jesus and believe.

Made right with God by faith in Jesus—
Peace with God through the blood of His son,
A place to stand in undeserved privilege,
A hope that does not disappoint,
God’s love poured out into our hearts (Romans 5) 

For God so loved the world, He gave His only begotten son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him, will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day. (John 6:40)

When we see Jesus, the foot of the cross becomes the Amazing Throne of Grace.

Will you meet me there?

 Our Father in Heaven, we bow our hearts and lives before you, thanking you for eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. May Your Kingdom come, Your will be done.  Forgive our sins. Renew our faith. Give us new songs of praise. In the name of Jesus our Lord, amen.
