How many people do you know who believe in God? A lot? I do, Most people I know believe in God. But – How many do you know that believe in Jesus. Are you brave enough to ask them? It took me a while when I was a teen to get up the nerve, because I was afraid to damage the friendship or be looked at oddly. When I was a child, I had no trouble talking about Jesus, because I did not care what others thought of me. When I was seventeen, I went through many situations and ordeals from age twelve till now! They have changed my life for the better! And it opened my eyes to how Amazing God and Jesus really are. Not every one has had such serious ordeals and some go the opposite way when they happen. They get mad at God and run away form him instead of remembering it is “He” who has delivered you out of the situation. I pray no one has to go through such rough situations, but sadly they happen.
Jeremiah 31: 3 I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love.
With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.
Hebrews 13:5 (b) “I will never fail you.
I will never abandon you.”

And some never open their hearts at all to God, unable to grasp his wonderful peace and overflowing Love because they choose not to believe in Jesus.
Romans 10: 9-13 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.” Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
John 14: 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Once we accept Jesus, the word of God, and all that is of God is so much easier to understand. It is like we are blinded till we take that test of faith. Unless you have opened your heart and done so you will have trouble understanding what I am saying. There is not other way to heaven, Jesus is the only way. It is hard to say because I don’t want anyone to go to Hell but there is nothing I can say to change that. God gave us free will and provided the way for us to get to heaven and be forgiven of ALL sin.
Replace the word “world” with your name, John 3:16 “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.because you are his child and then re-read it again. For God so loved YOU! Hits you doesn’t it. I know it hits me hard. We all face trials. I faced one of my won today.
I had a very intense day. God is a good God and I am very blessed. I am on a blood thiner, due to my heart condition, I have been on it since I was seventeen years old. Well sometimes my blood is to thin and sometimes to thick. Today it was too thin and it gave me a scare, I was coughing up blood when I woke up. So I went to the ER and they did not find anything that would have caused it, Thank God! They assume it was a bloody nose. Sometimes I forget how good God is in times of fear. Today was a good reminder he is a good Father and he takes care of his children..
John 17:1-4 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
It is now up to you to make that decision. Will you, have you accepted Jesus into your heart? If you have done so, and accepted Christ into your heart. It is now your job to spread God’s love and Jesus with others. NOW is the time the world, to know! God’s children need to hear they are loved. Sure we will be judged for doing so. But I care more about what God thinks of me in the end then what others do. And I want to save as many people form hell as I can.
If you have a friend that is not a believer and no matter what you say effects them, just pray for them to have God open their heart and know you at least planted the seed. It is now between them and God. Just be a good example and be there if they have a question. Do not debate God, just state facts and leave them. Debating solves nothing. It is only used to show two sides of an opinion. Arguing never solves anything Love always wins.
Read the book of John in the Bible and Romans I highly suggest it. http://www.bible.com Is where you can read it online if you do not have or know where your Bible is.
