F*A*I*T*H

God is ALWAYS faithful if we put our TRUST ,
wholeheartedly, in Him!


I feel that God has laid it upon my heart to share that article with you. For some of us, this may be new information. For the rest, it is a great REMINDER......................

HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN

A Step of FAITH
In your personal opinion....What do you understand it takes for a person to go to heaven? Consider how the Bible answers this questions. It is a matter of FAITH.

F is for FORGIVENESS
We cannot have eternal life and heaven without God's forgiveness.
"In Him (meaning )Jesus we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses" (Ephesians 1:7).

A is for AVAILABLE
Forgiveness is available. It is -

*Available for All. "For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who belives in Him will not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).
*But Not Automatic. "Not everyone who says to Me, "Lord, Lord!" will enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 7:21).

I is for IMPOSSIBLE
It is impossible for God to allow sin into heaven.

*Because of who He is: God is loving and just. His judgement is against sin. "For judement is without mercy" (James 2:13)
*Because of who we are: Every person is a sinner. "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23)
But how can a sinful person enter heaven, when God allows no sin?

T is for TURN
Turn means repent.

*Turn from something - sin and self. "But unless you repent, you will all perish" (Luke 13:3)
*Turn to Someone; trust Christ only. "If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that Dod raised Him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9)

H is for HEAVEN
Heaven is eternal lie.

*Here..."I have come that they may have life and have it in abundance" (John 10:10).
*Hereafter..."If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also" (John 14:3)
*How...How can a person have God's forvibeness, heaven and eternal life, and Jesus as personal Savior and Lord? By trusting in Christ and askin Him for forgiveness. Take the step of faith described by another meaning of FAITH: Forsaking All I Trust Him. Then tell someone about the important decision you have made. Grow in your faith and enjoy new friends in Christ.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and don't depend on your own understanding.
Proverbs 3:5


"Anyone who trusts in God, will never be put to shame."
Romans 10:11


As you look back on the journey you've traveled - recall the times you place hope and confidence in God. The outcome might not have been exactly as you imagined, but God is always faithful to bring you through. Count each blessing He's given you along the way and consider them stepping-stones to a higher level of trust. Whatever you're facing today, you can rest assured that His blessings will NEVER stop. He will walk it out with you - every step of the way!
Blessings~
