I don't know you -- but thought I'd let you know that there are people praying for you and your family.

I'd like to tell you about the Lord Jesus Christ's love & God's love. This is a love that is so big we can't imagine it -- it makes NO sense!

Romans 5:6-8 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. 8But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Christ died for each of us -- none of us deserves this. What's more, this love -- it's eternal, forever.

Psalm 136:1 Give thanks to the LORD , for he is good. His love endures forever.

So you may be thinking -- what do I have to do to have this love that makes no sense, what do I have to do to have this eternal life with Christ? How can I know Christ personally?

How Can I Know Christ Personally?

God's Love
John 3:16 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.

God's Plan
John 17:3 Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
What prevents us from knowing God personally? Sin separates us from God.

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Romans 6:23 The wages of sin is death (spiritual separation from God)
Jesus is the only way to God
John 14:6 I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but thru me.
You can receive Christ right now by faith thru prayer (Prayer is talking with God) Pray something like:

Lord Jesus, I want to know You personally. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving me of my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.

Now try to listen & obey. Try to start praying & reading God's word. The Gospel of John is good to start. Tell a christian friend you've accepted Christ!

Here is a prayer my prayer mail group & I are praying...

For Kevin & family
Ephesians 3:14-20 For this reason we kneel before the Father, we pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner beings, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And we pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Lord, help Kevin open his heart to You, help him seek Your guidance in his life. Thank You that as he does this he'll feel in a very real way Your love -- Your peace. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

In Christ
