Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I come to you to let those who don’t know this, that God loves you so very much that He sent His one and only Son, Jesus, from Heaven to die for our sins. The Bible says "for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."

I may be a sinner, but I’m saved. Okay, let me break this down for you. There is a difference between one sinner and another, even though we are all sinners.

One sinner confesses His Son, Jesus, as their Lord and Savior. He confesses his sin to God and asks God to forgive him. He believes Jesus died and rose three days later, he believes Jesus is God’s one and only begotten Son and he puts his trust in Jesus, and Jesus alone can save him from that place called Hell.

Now, there are also sinners who never confess Jesus as their Lord and Savior, they don’t believe Jesus is the Son of God and they continue going down that long dark road till they come to the end. And that road leads them to Hell.

I come to you in the name of Jesus, not to bring glory to my name, but to bring glory to Daddy — God. I’m not coming to you to make you think I have it all together because I don’t. I’m talking to you from one sinner to another.

You see, as long as we are in these flesh bodies, this house we call home for our spirit, we are going to make mistakes (sin, if I might say). As long as we are on this earth we are going to face sin, but it is up to us if we fall to it or turn away from it.

Guess what? God has already provided a way out of our sins and that way is through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. All you have to do is just ask Him to forgive you and try not to go back into that sin.

I’m not here to point my finger at you, because if I did there are four pointing right back at me saying "you are guilty too"! I’m not here to beat you across the head with a stick every time you do something wrong. Who am I to do something like that?

Only God has the right to do something that cruel, but guess what, He’s not going to do that, because God is love. Once again, He loves us so much. It’s just a fact that God hates sin and He hates it when we sin. I’m not here to judge you. After all, who am I to say you are going to Heaven or Hell when I am living in the same world you are living in. I’m a sinner in need of the Savior, Jesus, to save me also.

So many don’t understand me and don’t know where I am coming from. So many have judged me wrongfully, but that’s okay, I know what God has called me to do and that is to be a witness for Jesus. I’m not ashamed to let people know that I am a follower of Christ and that He is the only one that can save us.

Some people go wrong trying to save themselves by being good, working in the Church, and being kind to others. Don’t get me wrong, all that’s good. But they are leaving out one main ingredient and that main ingredient is Jesus. So many don’t understand that they can’t get into Heaven without Jesus. Jesus is the only way to the Father in Heaven. You do that by putting your faith and trust in Him and in Him alone. I’m not here to try to tell you which Church you need to attend or how often you need to go to Church. I’m not even here to question your religion, but I do take a stand for Jesus.

If the Church you are attending doesn’t teach the Good News of Jesus Christ, if it doesn’t teach the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, if it doesn’t teach that Jesus is the Son of God, then you might need to think about relocating your Church membership.

I’m not trying to be like anyone else, I’m just being myself. God uses me just the way I am and the level I am on. I just try to keep it real and simple and I don’t believe in sugar coating nothing when it comes to God. Regardless of what I may say or think, or what you might say or think, God in Heaven has the last say-so. AMEN
