Scripture Sunday - Relationship with God





Happy Sunday Morning 
Sweet Friends,

After going through Hurricane Irma
 at the risk of life and limb to myself
and my family, and to so many others 
here in Floridait really made me think
 about how very blessed we are to know
 Jesus, and to know our eternal destination
 will be heaven.  I also know there are 
many who don't have that assurance and
don't know Jesus, but would maybe like
 to know Him. So the thought of how
many people could have died here in 
Florida and also knowing the hardship
 many people are facing gave me a very
 strong desire to share some scriptures 
that would be helpful to anyone who is
desirous of a relatonship with Jesus.

It is a group of Bible verses that 
will help you understand how to
 start a personal relationship 
with Jesus Christ!


For all have sinned and fall short
 of the Glory of God.
Romans 3:23

We have all done things that are 
wrong, like lying, stealing, cheating, 
cursing, gossiping, hatred, discord 
and the list could go on and on, 
but most importantly God calls 
these wrong things SIN.  

So we have to be willing to admit 

that we are a sinner. We aren't
sinners because we sin,  we were
born with a sin nature......


The Wages of Sin is death...
Romans 6:23A

We will all die physically one day,
but there is also a spiritual death
which alienates us from God for
eternity, and the bible talks about
a place where lost people will be
in torment forever, unless they
accept the truth of what scripture
teaches about Jesus.

Understand that according to a Holy
God we all deserve death for our sin.


 For God so loved the world that 
he gave his one and only Son,
 that whoever believes in him shall
 not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16 




But the gift of God is eternal life
thru Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 6:23b

This eternal life is a free gift from 
God to you and to me, it is called 
Salvation. You can not earn this gift,
 because it is not based on anything
 that we can do, but is based on what
Jesus has already done, but we must
make the choice to believe and
recieve God's free gift.

Ask God to forgive you for all the

wrong/sinful things you have done
in your lifetime and then ask God
to make you His child, so that
you can know Him personally.


God demonstrates His own love
for us, in the while we were yet
sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8

Jesus died on the cross for us to
pay sin's penalty for all of humanity
and that includes me and you. He
bought us out of slavery to sin and
death!  The only condition is that 
we believe in Him, and what He
has done for us, understanding that
we are now joined with Him and that
He is our life.  He did all of this
because He loves us so much. His
love is what saves us, not religion
or church membership or our own
goodness........cause we can never
be good enough on our own....


Whoever will call on the name of the
Lord, will be saved.
Romans 10:13

Call out to God in the name of 
Jesus!

If you confess with your mouth Jesus
as Lord, and believe in your heart
that God raised Jesus from the dead,
you shall be saved; for with the heart
man believes, resulting in righteous-
ness, and with the mouth he confesses,
resulting in salvation.
Romans 10:9-10


If you believe that God is knocking
on the door o your heart as Him
to come into your heart.


Behold I stand at the door and knock,
if anyone hears My voice and opens
the door, I will come in to him.
Revelation 3:20A


Is Jesus knocking on your hearts
door???  If so, hope you will take
the steps you read here, as it is
probably the most important step
you will ever take, and it will be
the best thing you have ever done
for your life.  Walking with God
is not always easy, but it is a very
blessed life....as I have known the
Lord since I was a teenager and
have been walking with him for
over 50 years, and would not
change a thing...........

Love and Blessings Galore,

GOD is so Good! Everyday I tell Him, "I love You, Father GOD, Savior Jesus, Holy Spirit in me!" I find myself all throughout the day feeling the Holy Spirit's prompting! He is always with us, for one of His promises is, "I will never leave you nor forsake you!" Hebrews 13:5
Praise His Holy Name! Love you all, Susan
