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

The Most Important Decision

I was away for a few days, and when I got home, I was able to get caught up on the news in my area. To my dismay, there had been a car crash, killing six people. Four were adults in one vehicle, and the other two were children in the other one. In the middle of the afternoon, these individuals were probably out for a joy ride. When they woke up that morning, they never, ever realized that in a few hours, their lives would be ending. Period. Could that ever happen to you or me? Yes! Will it? Only God knows.
Which brings me to this question: Did they ever accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior? We may never know, for only God truly knows a person's heart. But for anyone to be ushered into heaven when life ends, it is necessary to believe in the Lord, and receive His gift of salvation.
Jesus said, 'I am the resurrection and the life.
He who believes in Me will live, even though he dies;
and whoever lives and believes in Me will never die.'
John 11:25-26
The most important decision a person can ever make is the decision to accept Jesus. To surrender to Him. To trust in Him, accept His death on the cross for his sins, and to obey Him by living according to the Scriptures. Everyone is given a chance. Some say yes. Some say no. And some never decide. They think they have time. They don't believe their life could be taken from them in an instant, when they least expect it. Some people are so caught up in the ways of this world that they keep putting off the decision to submit to the Lord. They want control over their lives. They want to sow their oats. They figure later on when they want to settle down, then they'll "get religion". How unfortunate they are. Not everyone is guaranteed a long life. Only God decides how many days we have here on this earth.
How about you? Have you given your heart over to Jesus, to be Lord over your life? Or have you been putting it off? You may not have tomorrow. Or even tonight. Please make your decision now. It will be the most important decision you will ever make.
