Jesus said - Lo, I am with you always (Matthew 28:20)
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
We have a major problem - the Bible says if we
have broken any of God’s 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 “How could a
loving God create a place like Hell, let alone send someone there?”
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 God’s laws, but here is the good
This is how we may be forgiven:
First, we must be willing to TURN AWAY from anything in our

That’s okay. God will help us but we must be willing and want to turn from
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:
“Dear 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 Jesus’ name.”
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.
