1. God Loves You!
The Bible says, "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" The problem is that . . .

2. All of us have done, said or thought things that are wrong. This is called sin, and our sins have separated us from God.
The Bible says “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” God is perfect and holy, and our sins separate us from God forever. The Bible says “The wages of sin is death.”
The good news is that, about 2,000 years ago,

3. God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. “God demonstrates His own love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.” Jesus rose from the dead and now He lives in heaven with God His Father. He offers us the gift of eternal life -- of living forever with Him in heaven if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me." God reaches out in love to you and wants you to be His child. "As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His name." You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and come in to your life as your Lord and Savior.

4. If you want to accept Christ as Savior and turn from your sins, you can ask Him to be your Savior and Lord by praying a prayer like this:

"Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior. I want to serve you always."

What's Sandwich Saturdays All About??

In my most recent studies and as I dig deeper in the word, I realize, we are a sad world right now. There is so much pain, hopelessness and sorrow. Here in Houston, on every corner there is someone begging for food, money, work, or the likes. There are often even those that state, "Will work for beer". They admit their pain publically, as well as their means for relief, and ask us to help them.

Joyce Meyers just released a book and is doing a conference, The Love Revelolution....and let me tell you, we (the world) could sure use one. Imagine a word full of just love, no pain, no hurt...just love. If we could reverse the tables of todays times, what would that look like? Better yet, what can we as individuals do to be a part of the solution?

A lot already do quite a bit, some do a little, some none at all...I myself, have had great intentions, yet, failed my own excitement...BUT, those times are over. REMEMBER, love is NOT a feeling, it is an, thus Sandwich Saturdays...

For less than $25 I plan to feed at least 25, how do you ask? Picture this, or better yet...TRY IT! Here's your shopping list:

2 Loaves of Bread
1 Jar of Mayo
1 Jar of Mustard
2 Lg package of Meat
2 Package Cheese
1 Package Sandwich Cookies
2 Boxes of Ziploc Baggies
2 Packages of Luncheon Paper bags
2 Case of Water
Optional items would be getting a couple of the bulk variety chips.

*you could also use peanut butter and jelly.

On Friday night gather friends, family and or your children, and make sandwiches and bag them up. Since we are doing this to show love, the real kind of love Christ taught us to show, maybe include a scripture card, a letter you've typed, or a printed prayer. I am creating a suggested printout to help and will post it later. When you are all finished, pray over them, remembering we are feeding the hungry and they need the love a Savior.

On Saturday morning, you'll be ready to go...gather some friends, and you pass the bags out, maybe pray with the individual, spend some time in converstation. It may have been a long time since someone has just listened to them.


The blog is created, the plan is thought let's GO!! Will post more tonight, but for now...we're off and running!!
