My dear friend wrote a terribly funny post using the search terms others use to find his blog. So I decided to check mine out and see if I could do the same. Looking through, I could come up with cute quips about several. Though there were two I wasn’t touching, one because I don’t want to start a word war, and another just because it freaked me out a little.

 

I also found…

spiritual pain … and logical reasons to live.

And 33 along the lines of..

logical reasons to believe in christreasons there is a godreasons that god existsbest reasons to believe in god …and reasons we know god exists.

33 of these just since the first day of this month! Suddenly I have no desire to be funny.

 

I hope it’s not what it looks like, but please if you’re looking for a good reason to live, talk to someone. Drop me a comment. I’ll be glad to talk to you. And the same, if you’re in spiritual pain and need someone, let me know.

 

To those searching for God, the best way to find Him is to ask Him.  For whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13

 

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
God’s love has no limitations. He loves more than we can imagine. He loves everyone, not just some.
Romans 5:8 “when we were in our sin Christ Jesus came to die for us.”
Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”
We have all fallen short of God’s intended purpose for us. God made us to know Him, to receive His love, and to love him in return. 

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Wages are payment, due reward, or what one has coming because of labor. The just payment for our sin is death. Death here means spiritual insensitivity. When we are still in our sin, we have no life with God. We are alive physically but dead spiritually. If we continue in that condition, we will be separated from God for all eternity.  God can remain true to His holiness and forgive unholy sinners, because Jesus, His Son, paid the price for sin by His death on the cross.

2 Corinthians 5:21 “He who knew no sin became sin for us, that we may be made the righteousness of God through Him.”
Jesus arose from the grave to conquer sin and death for all who receive Him, as God’s free gift.

 

You can receive God’s free gift of love and life.
Romans 10:9-10 “that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.”
A person receives God’s free gift of love and life by placing faith in Jesus Christ. To believe is simply to take God at His word. With our heart we believe that Jesus is God’s Son who died for our sin on the cross and arose from the grave to live in us as Savior and Lord.

Will you acknowledge that you are a sinner?

Do you believe by faith that Jesus, God’s Son, died for your sin on the cross?

Will you now confess Him as your Savior and Lord?

Romans 10:13 “for Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
This verse says that any person, who will call upon the name of Jesus, the Lord, shall be saved. To call means simply to ask in prayer. You are not required to know more, do better, clean up your life, or in any way try to add to what Jesus has done for us.

Will you now call upon Jesus to save you from your sin so that you can know God’s love and forgiveness?

Pray like this, “Dear God, I confess that I am a sinner, and I am sorry. I need a Savior. I know I cannot save myself. I believe by faith that Jesus, your Son, died on the cross to be my Savior. I believe He arose from the grave to live as my Lord. I turn from my sin. I ask You, Lord Jesus, the best way I know how, to forgive my sin and come into my heart. I trust you as my Savior and receive you as my Lord. Thank you, Jesus, for saving me.”

 

If you said that prayer and meant it, you’re now a member of the family of Christ and my brother/sister, in Him. You need to visit a Bible believing, Bible preaching church. And please drop a comment and let me know, so I can support you in your newfound faith.
