Handsome and beautiful, are the only words that I can think of. Good thing I'm not in it. Don't laugh too hard.
As I draw nearer to the Lord, I want to draw nearer to the Lord. Also I desire to be more like Christ than I was yesterday. What do I mean? I mean that there is no greater joy than to be in fellowship with the one who created me. Philippians 3:8 More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ, 9) and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith.
Turn to Jesus Christ, Turn to Jesus Christ, Turn to Jesus Christ. There is no logical reason for saying no to this. If you do not you will spend eternity in hell. It is not a scare tactic, it is truth. They say that the truth hurts, well in this case it burns (forever). 1 John 5:12 He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the son of God does not have the life. Revelation 20:15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
You have a choice. Who would willingly choose to die rather than live?

Are you Saved?

Easter egg hunt at Mimi's house. Top picture see how full Changlais bag is? Uh, we had to redistribute a few. What a beautiful and warm day (mid 80's) as you can probably tell by the bare feet.
If you answer the question, Are you saved, with "I don't know" or "I think I am" then Houston we have a problem. It is a yes or no question. John 5:24 (NASB) "Truly, truly I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgement, but has passed out of death into life". I am a simple person, so I like verses like this that spell it out clearly. It doesn't say we might have eternal life but that we will. Also, 1 John 5:11,12 "And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12) He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life".
Again, simply put so that even someone like me could understand. So there should be a moment in time that you can recall where you said "God, I have sinned against you and for that I am sorry and I now turn from my sin and turn to you (repentance)." This is found in Romans 10:9,10 That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; 10) for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
If you can't remember doing this, my friend you are not saved and will spend eternity in hell. This is the death the verses above speak of. You can turn to Him this very second. Please get on your knees wherever you are and pray the prayer in the upper right hand corner of this page. If you are tired of your old life and want a new one. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature, the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
Jude 25 to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
