Perhaps you do not feel that you know God.

 The Bible says God and Heaven are HOLY. Holy means PERFECT. It is really important to understand that God cannot let anything imperfect into Heaven. All of us have a body and a soul.  At death your body is either buried or cremated but your soul, the real you lives on forever, either in Heaven or Hell and there is no third place.

We have a major problem - the Bible says if we have broken any of Godís laws then our souls become imperfect and cannot enter Heaven, so sadly, it looks as though we are all headed for hell. Yes, we all have sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious ideal.

Some people ask the question ďHow could a loving God create a place like Hell, let alone send someone there?Ē Consider a judge trying a case and I think you will realizse that when someone breaks the law there must be a punishment or there is no JUSTICE. So, there has to be a punishment for breaking Godís laws, but here is the good news.
 Jesus is PERFECT. When He died on the cross 2000 years ago Jesus took the punishment we deserved for breaking Godís laws, he was making a way for us to be forgiven.

This is how we may be forgiven:  First, we must be willing to TURN AWAY from anything in our life we know is wrong. Notice we said willing. We may feel there are things in our lives, which in our own strength we are not able to turn from. Thatís okay. God will help us but we must be willing and want to turn from them.

Second, we must SURRENDER to Jesus.  Unless someone has turned and surrendered, it is impossible to be forgiven and restore friendship with God.

If you now want to Turn and Surrender - then can you say the following prayer:

ďDear God, I know I have sinned. I believe Your Son, Jesus Christ, died to take the punishment for my sin. I believe Jesus came back to life from death and has the power to forgive my sin and change my life. Forgive me. Come into my life and change me. I want to live for You and follow Your plan for my life. I believe You have forgiven me, and I thank You for hearing my prayer, in Jesusí name.Ē

If you prayed this prayer, it is now most important that you meet with other Christians. We would love to see you at our Church.

If you were not able to pray the prayer above at this time then please remember our church is always there for you. We would suggest pray sincerely to Jesus and ask Him if He is really there.

Please do visit a Church somewhere.  I don't know where you are. But please contact me if I can help.
