We are born to this life as a human being, special in God's sight. 
We are made in the image of God, with a plan for
an abundant and joyful life.  But, in our earthly birth, in our bodies,
we are in a state of living according to the
bodies needs and the souls desires. 

In ourselves, we are made up of 3 parts.  Body, Soul and spirit.  When we are
born into this world, our spirit 'man' is dead
and is in need of being 'born'.  We are in need of a Savior and an infilling of the Holy
Spirit to bring us into a life that is full and complete within ourselves. 
That is God's plan.

However, a long time ago, Adam and Eve sinned and partook of a tree in the Garden of Eden that God forbid to
eat of because in that day, it would then separate the relationship that God had designed from the beginning
of Creation, for intimate fellowship with His creation, us...human beings.

The beginning of Creation was designed for a relationship with God and you.  You were born to be intimately
connected to God and complete in yourself through the 'rebirth' of the spirit man to be complete
in your body, your soul and in your spirit.

There also is an enemy, it is satan, the adversary, the enemy of our soul, the devil, etc., and he is
waiting for anything place in us to keep us from connecting to God through relationship, so he trips us up
in believing we have to perform religious duties to be 'good enough' to make it into Heaven.
This then causes us to think that we must perform 'good deeds', 'good works' like, going to church,
not swearing, not smoking, being polite, lighting candles, going to confession, taking care of your neighbor,
etc., to be good enough to make it into Heaven and please God.
We see God as a white bearded man that is waiting for us to trip up and be bad so He can punish us
and be the 'man upstairs', waiting for that weak area to punish us.
That is what the devil is.  He is waiting for any place that we are weak to condemn us, make us live in shame
and guilt and therefore have a wrong impression of our true God that loves us and sacrificed for us
so that we could spend eternity in Heaven.
So, God has been desiring since before we were born to have a deep, loving relationship with us that is personal
and strong.  Where we can trust Him and be a 'friend of God'.

This is where the GOOD NEWS is for all of us that desire that assurance of knowing we can go to Heaven
and live forever with God.  There is a plan and we all can be a part of it and have the peace that
passes all understanding that no one can take away from you.

We have a place where we desire to have that peace that we don't have living the way we are now.
We see that our struggles are getting us nowhere, so we start to look to the possibility that maybe there is something
out there that is different than what we have now.  There is that place where we become tired of chasing the
things in our life that have never brought us to a place of fulfillment and joy.
That is where it is now our choice to take a look at what we have become and where we a trying to go
and we find that there is nothing we have ever done that can make us fill that void within our hearts and give
us that feeling of being complete.
Some look to people, some to drugs and drinking to dull the pain.  Some of us over eat or shop till we
drop and have huge credit cards of debt. Sometimes we think that huge house and garage full of fancy
expensive cars will do it.  Maybe we think, one more degree or the next promotion at work will finally do it!
Sorry to say, we may find excitement and fleeting happiness in those things, but pretty soon we come back
to that place of desiring more and when then will you ever make it when it is enough?

This is where we find our need of looking to God, but where do we start?  What do we do to find our way to God?
Where is GOD!!!  How do I find HIM???

Well, there is an answer and it is found in Jesus Christ.  He is the way to find your peace and your
fulfillment within that pit and whole you have nagging at you to feel complete and whole.

Jesus desire is for you to make a decision to follow Him. 
To take the time to tell Him that you just can't do life
alone anymore and that you need Him to come into your life and take control.

Jesus said in the Gospel of John 3:5 & 6:
5) Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born
of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
6) "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born
of the Spirit is spirit. (NKJV)
Verse 16 of the same chapter says:
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that
whoever believes in Him, should not perish but have
everlasting life.

It is Jesus that is what will get you to Heaven.  It is believeing in the Son of God, who came down from
Heaven above to live on this earth so that He could relate with us of all the joys and pain, trials
and successes, life and death.
 

It is the time of your life to make that decision to look to the One that can carry your burdens and lift you out of
that place of darkness and hopelessness and deliver you to a life of wholeness and fulfillment, complete in
what God's plan for you was...to have the assurance of eternal life with Him forever and ever.

It says in Romans 5:8 (NKJV)
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that
while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 10:9 & 10 says:
that if you confess with your mouth
the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart
that God has raised Him from the dead,
you will be saved.
For with the heart one believes unto
righteousness, and with the mouth
confession is made unto salvation.

God already knows all about you.  He sees everything you do and knows everything
you say.  There is no where you can run from the caring arms of God...His desire
is to have a relationship with you.

Psalm 139:1-4 says about you:
1)
O LORD, You have searched me and known me.
 2) You know my sitting down and my rising up;
         You understand my thought afar off.
 3) You comprehend my path and my lying down,
         And are acquainted with all my ways.
 4) For there is not a word on my tongue,
         But behold, O LORD, You know it altogether.

Verse 7 says:
Where can I go from Your Spirit?
         Or where can I flee from Your presence?

You see, my friend, there is no where you can go that God is not there.

This my friend, is not about religion.  This is about the plan that God started in the Garden, for
that intimate fellowship with you, through His Son, Christ Jesus, who came to sacrifice
His life for you on that Cross and be the

Christ is "the propitiation," meaning that Jesus has become our substitute for our sin,
assuming our obligations He suffered punishment for
our guilt and covered our sin with His blood by the punishment which he endured,
on the Cross of Calvary, so that we would be redeemed from our life of separation
with God and then reconciled us to God through His sacrifice.

God cannot look on sin.  He will turn His head from sin so that is why you feel like sometimes your
prayers are "bouncing off the ceiling", because in some way, they are.
It is the Blood of Jesus that gives us access into the Throne Room of God and we are now seen
in the eyes of God through the righteous Blood of Christ that covers our sins and are forgiven.
Our names are in the Lambs Book of life and Heaven is our destination.
 

You see, you don't need to carry your burden of sin around with you any longer.
Your burdens were taken for you on Calvary 2000 years ago, by a Savior that you can make the
Lord of your life today.
There is nothing more for you to do, but accept the gift of life from the one who gave you
life before you were born.

 

Psalm 139:13-16 says about you:
13
) For You formed my inward parts;
         You covered me in my motherís womb.
 14) I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; Marvelous are Your works,
         And that my soul knows very well.
 15) My frame was not hidden from You,
         When I was made in secret,
         And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
 16) Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
         And in Your book they all were written,
         The days fashioned for me,
         When as yet there were none of them.

Jesus desires to be your personal Savior. 
His desire is for your Spirit to be 'reborn' and to have
your life filled with the Holy Spirit from today on.
When you ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart, you are then indwelt with the
Holy Spirit of God and you now will find yourself being lead by the power of
the Holy Spirit and not your own understanding.

You will find your thoughts changing, your desires to do different and things you
didn't notice before, will jump out at you.  You will be able to read the Bible, the
Holy Word of God, and understand it for the first time.

We serve a risen Lord.  We serve a Redeemer of Sin and One who sets us free
to live a life of joy and peace, no matter what are circumstances are all
around us.

In the bible, we are referred to as sheep and Jesus is our Good Shepherd
Jesus says this in the Gospel of John:
10:11 I am the good shepherd.  The good shepherd gives His life
for the sheep.
v. 14:"I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep,
and am known by My own.
v. 25-30
25) Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you do not believe.  The works
that I do in My Father's name, they bear witness of Me.
26) "But, you do not believe, because you are not of My
sheep, as I said to you.
27) "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
28) "And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither
shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.
29) "My Father, who has given them to Me, is great than all; and no one
is able to snatch them out of My Father's hand.
30) "I and My Father are one.
