Show me the one, show me the way, help me to know just how to share the love You gave.

Look around you! There is probably someone who could use some love! All too often, we find ourselves surrounded by people who are going through some difficult times. Perhaps you are! Whether it's unemployment, family problems, health problems, depression, loneliness, or whatever, all of us would like some relief from what we are going through. We need to see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

And there is! The Light of Lights, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, is willing and more than able to lift us from our darkness, into His pure and safe haven of light. He promises His love and presence to heal and deliver, to strengthen and help, all those who call on Him.

Like the beam from the mighty lighthouse, that directs ships safely back to harbor, His Light is there to show us the way to Him, for Jesus is truly the Way, the Truth and the Life.

It is my prayer that this site encourages you to reflect His light to those around you who need to know Him. Let Him use you to share His love. And as you embark on this remarkable journey, please share your experiences so that all of us can grow together in our quest to reach all the world, lest anyone should perish.

May God richly bless you!

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

Just A Simple Prayer

Just a Simple Prayer

September 27, 2013 at 9:02am
There is only one way to know for sure where you will spend can say that you don't believe in God or that when you die that you just go into the ground and that is the end. You can say that once, when you were a child, you prayed a prayer and so now you will go to heaven one day...but the reality is that one day, every one of us will have to stand before God and either be recognized as receiving Jesus as the Lord of our life and our Savior or be separated from God for all eternity by the choices we made in life. The heart of God does not want you to be separated from Him...and He did do ALL that He could to save you when He sent His one and only precious Son Jesus to die for your sins on the cross. After three days God resurrected Jesus again to life and finished the work that now makes the way for you to have eternal life. My heart is that each and every one of you would not just pray a prayer to ask Jesus to give you the gift of eternal life but that you would each recognize that this prayer, if you really mean it, is only the beginning of a life that follows the path Jesus walked Himself. It is a relationship that is a lifelong commitment that will change you completely from the inside out. You will find more joy, love, peace and pure happiness then you ever would have thought possible. It is something that can be yours...and once you truly receive it then you will never be the same again!!!

A friend suggested that I also post a prayer that you can pray to ask Jesus to be your Savior. The prayer does not have to be these exact words BUT it needs to contain all the elements you see here...#1 you need to acknowledge that you are a sinner [everyone has sinned no matter who they are and that means that every single one of us needs a Savior]. #2 you must believe that Jesus is the one and only Son of God and that he died for your sins and was resurrected by God again to life so that you could have eternal life through Him. He is the one perfect and sinless sacrifice and the only One who could make a way for you to have a new life that each of us does not deserve because of the sins and the life that we have chosen. Even a good person still needs Jesus since every one of us has sinned. #3 You must ask Jesus to come into your heart and into your life and to be your Lord and Savior.

Here is an example of the prayer you should pray: God, I know that I have not always lived for you, and I have sinned in ways I probably don't even know yet are sins. I know that you have plans for me, and I want to live in those plans. I pray to you for forgiveness for the ways in which I have sinned. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins and that You raised Him from the dead to give me eternal life. I am choosing now to accept Jesus into my heart and I want to make Him the Lord of my life. I pray that You will fill me with Your Holy Spirit and that You will help me to live as You desire for me to live. I know that with Your help I can strive to overcome sin and no longer let sin control me. I put myself in your hands. I pray that you work in my life and guide my steps so that I continue to live for you. In your name I pray. Amen. need to tell someone that you know is a Christian that you prayed this prayer and if you have a Bible then you need to begin to read it so that you can learn more about the life that God has for you. I good place to start is in the book of John. I also sincerely recommend that you begin attending church and spend time with other believers so that they can encourage you in the new life that you have chosen and so that they can help you grow.

Note from Who Needs His Love: the above was written by Melissa Sylvis, and she shared this on Facebook this morning. I truly believe that she was inspired by God to write this and share this so that someone who needs Jesus would read this and make the most important decision there is. All it takes is a willingness to surrender one's own will to the only One who truly loves and cares for him: Jesus Christ! This is my prayer: that today is the day of salvation for a precious, lost soul. The angels rejoice when a person comes to Jesus! Hallelujah!! Praise His Holy Name!!
