Dear Friend (#339)
Bible version used: KJV
You matter to someone. Will you take a minute to discover who?...and why?
GOD never intended we should walk through life alone.
It is no accident that you are reading this today. God has a plan for you, and today may be the most important day of your life. Because today is the day you find out just how big the love of God is.
I discovered this love when someone cared enough to tell me about God and the relationship I can have with Him. I bought these leaflets to help you just like he helped me.
Friend, God never intended we should walk through life alone. He made us to be permanently connected with Him. But He didn’t create robots—He gave us a choice. And we pretty much said “No thanks God, I’ll do it myself. Get lost.” And He didn’t, but we did – get lost, that is. You may have noticed that most people are quite clueless about life.
The good news is that God didn’t leave us alone – at least not yet. Someday He might. But for now, He provides a way for us to get back to Him. It cost Him, because He sent His only Son, Jesus, to take the punishment for our rebellion. Jesus willingly gave His life on our behalf – so we could be re-connected with God. And after His death, God raised Jesus from the tomb. Jesus is in heaven right now, getting ready for His return.
One of the things Jesus is doing today is seeking those of us who have lost our way. He offers more than forgiveness: life with Jesus is like being born all over again. He walks with us through the worst circumstances life can bring us – even death. Whatever you are facing, Jesus knows because He is no stranger to suffering and pain. One of my favorite quotes from Jesus is in Matthew 11:28: “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”.
When we open our hearts to Him, we make an amazing discovery. Jesus did not come to make our life a burden. He came to give us LIFE – the very fullest and richest. Jesus said in John 10:10: “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly”.
Dear friend, whatever may have been your disappointment with people, disillusionment with life, and confusion with religion, let me assure you that this is not the fault of Jesus. He has been misrepresented, betrayed, denied, and neglected. But today He stands at God’s right hand asking you to accept what He has done on your behalf. Turn from your life without God, and fall into the loving arms of Jesus.
If you want to know more about Jesus, get a Bible and read the Gospel of John. Talk to a committed Christian. And go to a church where the life and work of Jesus is clearly explained.
All things are planned by God – even your receiving this leaflet. This invitation is not from me – it is from Jesus. Do not harden yourself against His call. You matter to Him.
If you are ready to accept what Jesus did on your behalf, tell Him:
“Jesus I long to be back in relationship with God and I accept what You have done to make that possible. Please come into my heart and my life today. Amen.”
