Choose Jesus!

Anyone who belongs to Christ is a new person. The past is forgotten, and everything is new.  God has done it all! He sent Christ to make peace between himself and us, and he has given us the work of making peace between himself and others.  What we mean is that God was in Christ, offering peace and forgiveness to the people of this world. And he has given us the work of sharing his message about peace.  We were sent to speak for Christ, and God is begging you to listen to our message. We speak for Christ and sincerely ask you to make peace with God.

2 Corinthians 5: 17 - 20

When Adam and Eve sinned, the entire human race declared war on God!  Ever since that day men and women have, by nature opposed the rule of God in their lives.  They are determined to say “no” to every Word that comes from the mouth of God!  To them, God is the enemy of a happy life on earth!

They believe that God would have them to “just say no” to everything that is truly delightful on this earth.  To them, it seems that God created men and women with desires that He demands them not to fulfill!  They see the Christian life as a somber, sad and unfulfilled experience!  But that is a huge lie of Satan!

When you make Peace with God by accepting the sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross, your life steps in to an arena of unparalleled peace, joy and fulfillment!  It is beyond your fondest dreams!  The Creator of everything that is becomes your daily Companion and One who is eager to impart His wisdom in your daily walk!  

“War and Peace” are the two possible states of man’s existence.  You can be at War with God because that is the family tradition of human beings, or you can be at Peace with the Creator through the Blood of Jesus Christ!  The choice is yours!  Choose Peace!  Choose Jesus!

“Lord Jesus, thank You for paying the price for my Eternal Peace and Joy!  You are indeed the Good News, now and forever!  Amen!”
