serious stuff!

“And you have not His word (His thought) living in your hearts, because you do not believe and adhere to and trust in and rely on Him Whom He has sent. [That is why you do not keep His message living in you, because you do not believe in the Messenger Whom He has sent.]” – John 5:38 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

Is this a description of you?  This is simple to remedy.  Talk to our Creator like He is sitting right there next to you (because He is – He led you to this blog).  Admit to Him that what you just read is a description of you.  Tell Him you’re sorry.  Ask Him to forgive you.  Tell Him you’re sorry for all the things you’ve done that you knew were wrong.  If certain things come to your mind, tell Him about those things, even though He already knows you’ve done them.  Next, ask Him to forgive you for these things plus all the other things you can’t even remember.  He calls those wrong things sin.  If you’re sincere, He forgave you.  Period.  Psalm 103:12 says, “As far as east is from west— that’s how far God has removed our sin from us.”  Spread your arms out, one pointing west and the other pointing east.  When do the east and west come together?  Sure, you can move your hands so they touch, but that doesn’t mean the east and west meet up.  They never do.  So if you really meant that prayer, God will NEVER remember those sins, those wrong things.  Ever.  Does that take a load off your shoulders?  Now tell somebody what just happened.  1.800.NEED.HIM is a place where you could start.  Find a place to go to church that will teach you about the Bible, not their beliefs.  Start going regularly.  Get to know the people there.  Pepper them with questions.  Learn more about what you’ve just done.  Find a Bible and begin reading.  If you can’t afford one, go to a thrift store.  They almost always have at least one for sale.  When you get your Bible, a good place to start reading is in John, more than halfway back.  And please leave me a message on this blog to let me know.  Comments left for me cannot be seen by anyone but me.  Feel free to ask me questions.  Congratulations on your new journey as a Christian!!!
