From the creation of man, whom we and the Bible call Adam and Eve, man has had free will. God has allowed us to decide for ourselves whether we choose to follow Him or turn against Him. We have all decided to turn against God and follow our own ways. This is sin. We decide that we are right and God is wrong. We may not do this consciously or maliciously, but we do this nevertheless. We choose our own paths and they lead us from God. This is not the way God - who is our Creator - intended it. God created us to love Him and to be with Him forever. He wanted us to choose this love not to force it upon us. Love is not love when it is forced upon a person. So God made His love for us manifest in all creation. We only need to recognize it. We are not here by chance. Every single thing in nature is connected to every thing else in nature...it depends upon and serves the rest of creation in its own way.Once we recognize this Love God has for us what are we to do? The answer is simple...we are to serve the Creator who is God.
The Call to Grace
WHOM WILL YOU SERVE? Satan - the great devil - saw God face to face. We see God through His creation. Satan choose to turn against God and follow his own way. God has promised that Satan will be cast forever into a place of eternal destruction for his rebellion. We choose to join Satan when we choose not to follow God. So, whom will you serve? The Creator or the rebel? I know whom I will serve....The Creator! Won't you join us...
If you desire to follow God, you must follow Him through His Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. He was sacrificed and died so that we might be free. He paid the price for the rebellion of you and me. We only need to ask for His forgiveness to begin our salvation....If you want to live for Jesus please pray the following prayer...
The Sinner's Prayer
Lord Jesus, I believe You died for me and that You are alive and listening to me now. I repent (turn away) from my sins and ask for Your forgiveness. From this moment on, I decide to live for you and no longer for myself, to do Your will and not mine. Make me the kind of person You want me to be. Show me the way to the Father. Now fill me with Your Holy Spirit, who will teach me how to live for you and tell the world that You are my Savior and Lord. I love You, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit! AMEN!
