I just had to share this from my friend James. What a thrill to know you can be with a loved one forever in Heaven with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Not to mention some great words you can take to your own heart if you are lost, or share with your own loved one if you aren’t sure what to say to them. Blessings and enjoy.
Today is my birthday so, please indulge me…
Last night at church my nine year old son accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior and will be baptized following the service this Sunday.
As a person who doesn’t want for much and doesn’t really need anything, the assurance that I will spend an eternity in Heaven with all four of my kids is the best birthday present I could have possibly received.
If you would like the best gift you could ever receive as well, all you need to know is below.
Realize Who God Is
It all starts with a realization of Who God is. The Bible says He is the creator of the universe (Genesis 1:1) and creator of man (Colossians 1:16). God is holy (1 Peter 1:16), righteous (Psalm 145:17), perfect (Matthew 5:48) and is the judge (Romans 2:16) of all mankind. He is all-powerful (Luke 18:27), all-knowing (Psalm 139:2-6), and is everywhere (Job 28:24). God is eternal (Psalm 90:2), infinite (Psalm 102:25-27), and unchanging (Hebrews 13:8). He is sovereign (Romans 8:28-30), good (Psalm 25:8), merciful (Daniel 9:9), and gracious (Psalm 103:8). Understanding these attributes helps build a proper foundation to our need for Him.
