What is your most valued possession?

most valuableWhat is Your Most Valuable Possession?

It’s a good question; I wonder how you would answer it? If we are being honest our answer will depend, to some extent, on our circumstances. For instance, if I was terminally ill what I thought was important would be completely different to my choice in sunnier days. Car, homes, holidays and technology might be important to me now, but they have little value if life is slipping from my grasp. I hope that family, relationships and my spiritual condition will be my focus if I get time to contemplate my departure from this life to the next.

Is Your Most Valuable Possession a Bucket List?

So be honest with me – if you were facing the dying moments of your life on Earth what would your checklist look like? I often hear people talk about a bucket list of things they would like to do before they die. It might be to climb this mountain, fly to this destination or enjoy this particular experience. Please don’t get me wrong, I understand that you would be creating memories for those who will be left behind. I appreciate that you may be seeking to ensure that the final moments of life are full of genuine rich and familial experience.

God cares for you

Does God Care about us?  Stephen points out that God has time for each one of us. He cares about each one of us personally, we simply need to come to Him. 

Does God Care?

This time of the year can be a lonely time for many people! Everyone has their family, or do they? There are a lot of people about who are very private and keep themselves to themselves. They would not trouble anyone with their problems and would not presume that anyone else is interested.

I have news for anyone who is reading this who thinks like that. I know someone who is interested in you; the Lord Jesus. He is recorded as saying in the Gospel of John – ‘I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly‘.

Jesus is Interested in You

The Lord Jesus is personally interested in each one of us. For no other reason than He wants the best for us! If you doubt that then read one of the four Gospels in the New Testament part of the Bible. The record about Jesus says that ‘He went about doing good‘. For three years for He dispensed the blessing and forgiveness of God to the people He met. He healed them both physically and spiritually. By doing this He was proving that God is interested. That God is caring! That God has time for you! Even His amazing miracles demonstrate that God cares. The one who can heal the body can save the soul!

Does God Care?Come to Jesus

You can come to Him quietly, by praying to Him, wherever you are. We have all sinned against God and need His forgiveness. When we agree with God that we have disobeyed His commandments and ask for His forgiveness then He will forgive.

Contact me if you are not sure how to come to Jesus.

Why and How Should I Come to Jesus?

Why and How you may ask?

Why – because we are in danger. God is just and must judge wrong. Our wrongdoing has consequences because breaking God’s law is damaging. Just as fire burns so sin hurts and has ongoing consequences. This is why we need God’s help. The Bible states that God ‘is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance‘.

How – God can save us from the consequence of sin because His Son, Jesus died on the cross for our sins. The Bible says ‘Christ died for the ungodly‘. He died for you, and I, and can forgive us because He took the punishment for sin. Jesus was sinless and so was qualified to pay the price on our behalf.

Does God Care?

 

You Will be Forgiven

When you trust Lord Jesus Christ with your life and soul you will be forgiven – why not believe today? It works – He saved me and has been part of my life for fifty two years now.
