Jesus Christ is alive and well, and He loves you very much!
On Sept. 25th, 1975, I was a lost unchurched agnostic. I had been invited to join a church and attend a Bible study. I gladly came, not to join the church, but to disrupt the Bible study and to make a fool out of the pastor. The pastor, a gifted evangelist, found out what I was about to do and used the Bible study to evangelize me!
When the study was over, Pastor Kruger pointed his finger at me and said, “Clyde!! Jesus loves you so much, he would have died on the cross, paying your sin debt if you were the only person to believe in him. Seek forgiveness, and receive eternal life!”
I bowed my head, with tears running down my face. I begged Jesus to fill my heart with his love! I desperately needed love and acceptance! Jesus answered my prayers and I immediately received the love, peace, and joy that surpassed understanding. I joined the church, and several weeks later prayed that Jesus would allow me to share my newfound love, peace, and joy with young people, so they may also be filled with love, peace, and joy.
Soon my counselor, the spirit of truth, and I were teaching teenagers. We also went on to lead adult Bible studies and made evangelism calls. Oh, how I love Jesus! My heart is filled with love for you, Jesus, for you and you alone. This is something that must be shown! Please take my heart and keep it, it’s all I have to give. We will be united as long as we both shall live!!
Jesus died on the cross paying for your sin debt. He rose again on the third day and now lives with his father in heaven. If you believe Jesus did this for you, you will receive forgiveness and eternal life with him. You will also receive the love, peace, and joy that surpasses understanding!! Jesus is love and is a gift to all who believe in him! He is coming again to gather all those that believed in him and bring them home to heaven to be with him forever!
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. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16-17
From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” Matthew 4:17
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Matthew 22:37-39
Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 5:1-2
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. Romans 10:9-10
If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. John 14:15-17
As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. John 15:9-12
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17
Humbly submitted in Jesus name, by Clyde McCartney and the Counselor that lives in me. Love, Peace, and Joy are waiting!! Come quickly Lord Jesus, come quickly!!
Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:8,9
