“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, so that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
God’s plan is to reach people through people. We are like links in a chain with each generation serving as a link to the next generation. It is imperative that we Share Christ with the next others. Our responsibility is to share His love with others.
Notice in the verse of Scripture above that the heart of God is a heart of love. The verse begins, “For God so loved…” God loves people like you and He wants you to know Him. He wants you to experience His love.
Of course, His love goes far beyond any form of human love. The verse also says, “That he gave his one and only Son…” His love is demonstrated in the giving of his own Son to die on the cross in our place.
What is so amazing about the love of God is that he does not leave anyone out. Notice that the verse says, “So that whosoever believes in Him…” It is possible for anyone to believe in Jesus. Once a person believes in Jesus with faith in Him they become “saved.” To be saved means to come into a right relationship with God. Because of God’s love when we believe in Jesus that is what happens – we come into a right relationship with God. We begin becoming what God created us to be.
Notice from the verse also that whoever believes in Jesus “does not perish but has eternal life.” What an amazing gift from God - To be in a right relationship with Him, to begin becoming what He created us to be and then to spend eternity in His loving presence. All this is available to us by believing and trusting in Jesus, who died on the cross for us.
You can ask God to save you now! Ask Him like this… “God I am beginning to understand that you love me and that Jesus died for me. I realize that I am a sinner and I need a new relationship with You in my life. Please open my heart to your love because I want to trust Jesus as my Savior. Please forgive me of my sins and help me to live for you from this moment forward. Help my love for you grow stronger each day from this point. I’m looking forward to my future with You in heaven. Amen”
If we can assist you with your relationship with God please contact us and we will be glad to help you. Smile – God loves you!
Jesus trained a few very ordinary people to reach their world with the Gospel. He said, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men”, (Matthew 4:19 NIV). These men and the women were faithful in sharing Christ with others and turned their world upside down. They launched a world changing movement without the aid of technology, political clout or social status. They simply did it by Sharing Christ one person at a time.
You can do the same thing among your neighbors and friends also. Learn ways of Sharing Christ with others from one of our church equipping seminars or by connecting with a training site listed under Sharing Christ Hotlinks.
