It might be helpful, to those of you who visit this site, to update it more than every two months. You might be here looking for some inspiration or guidance. Maybe you’re already a born-again believer and you just like to read about Jesus. Maybe, you’re not sure what you think and you just want to see if anything on this site speaks to you.
What if there is a 2% chance that I AM right?
Non-believers or those of you reading this post who don’t really care about going to church or initiating a relationship with Jesus should know something. If you don’t believe that having a relationship with Christ is important and you think that people just die and that’s it, I have a suggestion for you.
If there is just a 2% chance that the people like me, who talk about Jesus are right, then you owe it to yourself to take just a minute to say a prayer. After all, what do you have to lose? If I’m right that you need to accept Jesus into your life and you do, then no one else needs to know and you will someday return to your spiritual home- Heaven. If you’re right and people just die and that’s it; well then, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
When I say “Heaven,” I mean eternity. I don’t mean spending eternity as if you were doing it on earth with concerns, worries, problems, pain, torment, sadness, distrust, jealousy and anger. I mean eternity with joy and happiness and a calm you have never known. This is your spiritual home, not to be confused with the downsides of your earthly home.
In John 3:3, we learn something incredibly important when Nicodemus asks Jesus some questions.
Jesus told Nicodemus “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” In reply, Nicodemus wondered how an old person can be born again……..did they have to return to their mother’s womb?
Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
Then in verses 14 and 15, he continued:
“…so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”
Even Jesus Himself makes it clear that you have to be born-again to have eternal life.
How does a person become born-again? It’s very easy. Say the prayer in our About section or this one now:
Dear Lord God, I believe that you sent your Son Jesus to live a sinless life and then die for my sins. I believe that Jesus Christ is God. I confess that I have lived a life of sin and fallen short of Your glory. Please forgive me; I no longer want to be separated from You. I invite Jesus into my life to give me the direction that I need. I invite the Holy Spirit into my heart to do Your will from this day forward. It is in Jesus’ name that I pray this prayer AMEN
There you go. If I am right (and I am a thousand percent sure I am), then you have just taken the first and most important step to being a saved, born-again believer. You will notice a difference in your life, even if you can’t quite put your finger on it. Something will have changed. Try your best to live a more “Christ-like” life from this point forward. If you died tomorrow, you would know that you will live for eternity in paradise.
