“These…events are permitted and guided by thy wisdom, which solely is light. We are in darkness and must be thankful that our knowledge is not needed to perfect thy work.”

On a Saturday morning, Dave, suddenly and very unexpectedly, died of a massive heart attack. He was, quite literally, absent in the body, present with the Lord. The Monday prior he’d called me to his side, “How do I get right with God?” was his question.
The answer still is…it’s easy, really, you just have to want Jesus more than you want yourself. If you’re like me, you’ve not done too badly with your life but, there’s the nagging thought, it could be better… Yes, it can definitely be better!
There are many good books written on God, Christ and the Bible but there’s only one Bible. It alone is God’s Word, it alone tells us how to accept Christ, live a Christian life and, when we die, spend eternity in Heaven with God, Christ and those great cloud of witnesses.
God loves you, Jesus loves you and the Holy Spirit wants to be your Comforter. Christ tells us He is the Way, the Truth and the Life and no one comes to the Father, except through Him. The only way to eternity in Heaven is by saying to Jesus, “I love you and believe You’re the Son of God and died so I might spend eternity in heaven with You.”
Yes, it really is that easy! Christ has done the hard work…taking on your sin, my sin and the sins of the entire human race so we might be restored with God, Our Father.

If you’d like a name added to the prayer list, please let me know. Names are kept for one week, unless you give me that name each week. Around the world, people are praying.
