Hello, John and Doves,Here is a suggested letter to loved ones:___________________________________________________________________________________________________________Dear loved one,Before I begin, let me say a few things first:
"Ears to hear and eyes to see--both are gifts from the LORD."
Proverbs 20:12 NLT
"And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission."
Having said that, let us think about the thief on the cross.
It is written,
“Seek the LORD while He may be found,
Call upon Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way,
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
Let him return to the LORD,
And He will have mercy on him;
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.”
Clearly, it is easy to be saved. There are just four rules, if you will.
Confess. Repent. Believe in God's forgiveness for your sin. Live by faith.
9 "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 "If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us." 1 John 1:9-10
"I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live." Ezekiel 33:11
1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 "The same was in the beginning with God.
3 "All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 "In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
10 "He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 "He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name:
13 "Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."
John 1:1-4, 10-14
"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:12
"For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."
1 Corinthians 3:11
"But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Hebrews 11:6
If at first things don't make sense, don't be dismayed, for it is written:
21 "For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
22 "For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
23 "But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
24 "But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
25 "Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men." 1 Corinthians 1:21-25
If you're not sure if God is willing to have a personal relationship with you, look at Jesus' words to the Laodicean [lukewarm] Church:
" 'Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.' " Revelation 3:20
