I truly don’t care if you never go to church. That is not what this is about. You never have to join a church, attend a service or even give one dollar to accept Jesus as your personal savior.
If you openly say, “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised him from death, you will be saved. Yes, we believe in Jesus deep in our hearts, and so we are made right with God. And we openly say that we believe in him, and so we are saved.
Romans 10:9-10 ERV
Yup , it’s that simple. Now comes the hard part. You must allow Jesus to be your savior, let him love you, let him forgive you, let him in your life. Talk to him daily, there is no special way, just open your heart and mind and let him in.
Here is the beautiful part, it’s forever. You won’t get it right the first few times. You will slip up, make mistakes, revert to your old life, yup you will still be a mess. But eventually, little by little you will be changed. God will keep providing for you, loving you and working on you. He will heal the broken places. He will strengthen the areas where you are weak and he will love you through it all.
Yes, I am sure that nothing can separate us from God’s love—not death, life, angels, or ruling spirits. I am sure that nothing now, nothing in the future, no powers, nothing above us or nothing below us—nothing in the whole created world—will ever be able to separate us from the love God has shown us in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39 ERV
So don’t take this to mean you should never go to church because there is something wonderful about being with a body of believers that are all trusting God. When the Holy Spirit shows up lives are changed and chains are broken but that’s for later. For now, just get down on your knees, shut the world out and let your heart hear from God.
We must not quit meeting together, as some are doing. No, we need to keep on encouraging each other. This becomes more and more important as you see the Day getting closer.
Hebrews 10:25 ERV
This is really about you getting to know Jesus.😇
