I am thankful first of all for this meme...It really helps me to focus on what I am thankful for on a regular basis and is very encouraging.
I am so thankful for "GRACE" and "MERCY" that God gives me on a daily basis. I am so undeserving. I think of what the Apostle Paul says: The things he should do, he does not and the things he should not do, he does....But God Loves Us anyway. With his grace and mercy we can come to his throne and ask for forgiveness and He will forgive.
I am thankful for the knowledge that when I pray for God's protection on my family...God will provide.
I am thankful for miracles! You can see more of one specific miracle here. You will be blessed.
I am also thankful that my daughters and I have the opportunity to go on a missions trip to mexico. You can read more about this here.
Do you know for sure where you will go when you die?
The Bible says you can know 100% that you will go to heaven when you die. How you ask?
1. You must Recognize Your Condition
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." This means that NO ONE is good enough to go to Heaven on his (or her) own merit. No matter how much good we do, we still fall short of God's perfection.
Uh oh....that's not good....but read on!
2. You must also Realize the Penalty for Sin
Romans 6:23a "For the wages of sin is death...." This means that just as there are wages (payment) for good, there is punishment for wrong. The penalty for our sin is eternal death in a place called Hell.
Uh oh...still not good...but here comes the good....no...GREAT news!!!
3. You must Believe that Christ Died for You Romans 6:23b ".....but the GIFT of God is eternal life through Christ our Lord." Romans 10:13 "For whosoever (meaning anyone and everyone) shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." This means that Everlasting life in Heaven is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus and offered freely to those who call upon Him in faith.
If you would like to accept God's gift of eternal life all you have to do is ask God for it in prayer. (realize that it is not mere words that save you, but your faith that Jesus died for you.)
We'll help you word a prayer.
Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. Please forgive me of my sins. Jesus, come into my heart and save my soul from Hell. I believe you died on the cross for my sins and I'm trusting in You, and You alone, to take me to Heaven when I die. Thank you for saving my soul. Amen
If you prayed this prayer please let us know so we can Rejoice with you!
