Are you Important? ARE YOU EVER! John 3:16 and Ephesians
God tells us in Ephesians that we are:
Blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ,Chosen before the foundation of the world, Predestined to adoption, Accepted in the beloved, Have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace, He has made known to us the mystery of his will, We have obtained an inheritance, Sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, Given the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him, A part of the body of Christ, Saved by Grace, through faith, not of yourselves, but a gift of God, A workmanship of God, Created in Christ Jesus unto good works, Have access, through Christ Jesus, to the Father, A part of the household of God.
I will stop there, for this could get VERY long. I invite you to read the book of Ephesians. In it Paul, (who was sent to preach the gospel to the Gentiles) tells of salvation through grace, your part in your walk with God, what your relationship is with Christ, who you are in Christ, and much more. Just know, God loves you! YOU are important to him. He wants the very best for you always. God wants to not lose one soul, but knows all will not be saved.
Where do you stand? Accepting Christ as your personal savior is a walk of faith. All you have to do is ask God to forgive you of your sins, ask in faith for God to enter your heart. Let him know you understand and believe that God sent Jesus, his only begotten son to die on the cross to save us of our sins. He was placed in a tomb, and on the third day he rose again, he is the living God! He ascended into heaven, and is there now, sitting at the Fathers right hand, and one day he will return for his children. Let him know you want to be a part of the family of God. You want to accept him as your personal savior, and that you believe in all that he says in his word.
The bible is our guide book. It is the written word of God, God's truth, God's promises and warnings. What God promises he does, always.
