When polls are taken they still indicate
that most people in the world say they are Christians.
But in this group of people there are three different kinds.
The first group is the largest and they are
Most have been born into a Christian home.
They may go to church or
have been baptized
and they are told
You are a Christian.
The second group are
They are honest, moral, work hard,
do charitable works,
and are good citizens.
They think they are good enough
and do enough good works to
earn their way into heaven.
The smallest group of Christians are
This group comes to God
knowing they are sinners
and can't do enough good works or be good enough
to get to heaven on their own.
They believe that God loved them so much that
He sent His Son Jesus
to die on the cross to pay for their sins
and rose again with the power to forgive their sins.
They have put their trust in Jesus
and God saved them from hell and made
each of them His child.
They now have a home in heaven when they die.
Ephesians 2: 8 and 9
For by grace are ye saved through faith;
and not of yourselves: It is the gift of God.
Not of works, lest any man should boast.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
For God so loved the world
that He gave is only begotten son
that whosoever believeth in Him
should not perish but have everlasting life.
I am a God-Made Christian. : )
A blessed Sunday to you all.
Jesus loves you.
