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

So, You Say You Are A Christian...

There are people who say they are a Christian. Some go to church, and others do not.  However, for some, when you look at what they are doing in their lives, you wonder. They admit they don't read their Bibles. They don't even express an interest in talking about God. And their lifestyle is no different than an unbeliever's lifestyle; that is, they don't feel convictions in doing things that God clearly says is wrong. They live a compromised life. While they say they are a Christian, they are what you may say, lukewarm Christians. There is no expressed passion for Christ.

While it is true that only God knows a person's heart, it is possible that we can get a feel of whether he is truly saved, that is, whether he has chosen to follow Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior. And by doing that, he has a desire to please Him and obey Him. He is hungry for more of God in his life, and spends time reading his Bible, praying, and going to church. He has a desire to grow more like Christ, and becomes concerned for the salvation of others, knowing what the Bible says about the consequences of sin and where one spends eternity.

Jesus expressed His opinions about lukewarm Christians in Revelation 3. In fact, He said He was going to spit them out! What! Why? Jesus gave His life for us who claim we are Christians, and wants a Bride who is passionately in love with Him. How sad it will be for those who thought they were going to go to heaven, all because God is love, and "wouldn't send anyone to hell." But they never gave their heart to Him. They never truly accepted His gift of salvation, but based their eternal destination on the religious practices they did in church. They blindly accepted whatever they were taught, but never checked it out for themselves in the Bible. Jesus said that He was even going to refuse those who said, "LORD, LORD" because they never truly knew Him. They had a head knowledge of Him, but not a heart relationship with Him.

How about you? How is your relationship with Jesus? Do you truly know Him, and make every effort to follow Him? Are you passionately in love with Him? Or do you prefer to keep your distance from Him, not wanting Him to control your life?

It is totally up to you. But please remember. Jesus will have the final say on whether He will let you in to heaven. Don't be mistaken or misled. Seek Him now while there is still time. He is knocking on the door to your heart, waiting for you to open it and let Him in. When you do, your life here on earth will never be the same, and your heart will be yearning for an eternity with Jesus in heaven!
