- Those who are followers of Christ believe that all people are by nature separated from God and responsible for their own sin (Rom. 3:23; Is. 59:2), but that salvation, redemption, and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ (Rom. 6:23).
- When a person repents (Acts 3:19) and accepts Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior (Rom. 10:9-11), trusting Him to save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit (Acts 17:31; 1 Cor. 15:3-8), all of his/her sins are forgiven (1 John 1:9), and that person becomes a child of God, destined to spend eternity with the Lord.
Imagine the peace and confidence of knowing that those we have loved who are no longer here with us are waiting for us, spending "Eternity with the Lord."
What do you think will happen to you after this life? Do you have the hope, confidence and peace of knowing that you will no longer be separated from a loving, grace-filled, merciful, holy and wonderful Father God?
Would you like to be "born again" into God's own family - welcomed, accepted and sealed with Him forever? It's really very simple, but may seem complicated in this secular world we live in, but I pray that the Holy Spirit will help you to understand that like the caterpillar that becomes a butterfly, that's us - we are meant for more than crawling through life, we are meant to fly.
Ask Jesus to come into your heart, surrender your will, as does the caterpillar, that you may become who God intends you to be and that you will then understand the meaning and purpose of life and where you will spend eternity. Your "new life" begins and ends with Jesus, how I hope you will recieve Him and His gift of Eternal Life.
With Faith, Hope and Love in Christ,
