On December 11, 2009 my mom went home to Glory. It was a sudden and tragic death. Thank you so much for your outpouring of love during this extremely difficult time. Words escape me to express my gratitude. People that I didn't even know knew me showered my family with love. God truly used so many people to physically and emotionally surround us with His love.
I cannot fathom going through this dark and uncertain time without Him. He truly is the Light of my life. I pray tonight that each of you will know the Almighty Father and accept the gift of His son, Jesus Christ. Two thousand years ago God sent His Son to be born in a world full of pain, sin, sorrow, and death. Then God allowed His Son to die a painful death to pay for all the sins, past, present and future. Three days later Jesus Christ defeated death, arose and ascended into Heaven where He lives today. He did that for my mom, for you and for me.
If you died tonight, do you know where you would spend eternity? In the Bible, God's perfect and unblemished Word, Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." There is no magic, no one thing you need to have Everlasting life except to ask Jesus to come into your life, to come into your heart, to cleanse you of sin and forgive you. When you make room for Jesus in your life He will extend His grace and his mercy to you and He will forgive you for all of your sins and you can live in Heaven with Him for eternity. Grace is simply unmerited favor, God giving us a gift that we do not deserve. Mercy is God withholding punishment from us that we DO deserve.
I don't care where you've been or what you've done, God will forgive you if you ask Him to. The Bible says that God throws our sin into the bottom of the ocean and He can remove our sin from us "as far as the East is from the West." You do not know what your tomorrow brings. But God does and He is waiting for you to accept the gift of eternal life with Him through the acceptance of Jesus Christ.
