"I count myself one of the number of those who write as they learn and learn as they write." ~St. Augustine

Do you know?

Do you not know? Have you not heard?  The Lord God is the everlasting God, the Creator of the earth!

Do you know that this Almighty Creator, in all His awesome wisdom, thought of you before He laid the foundations of the earth?  You.  Yes, you.  He loved you and chose you and knit you together in your mother's womb.  He thought of you and delighted in you before He made the mountains, the sea and all that is on the earth!
Have you heard that Almighty God put within you a longing and a desire for relationship with Him?  You know that hunger you have to know and understand? ... that desire you have to be at peace, feel love and experience joy? ... that longing you have to connect and belong?... these desires are from the hand of Your creator.  He put these longings inside your very soul!  And, He offers to fill them all... He wants to fill them with Himself, His very Spirit.

Do you know that God's Son, Jesus, is God's very Word spoken into an earthly body?  Jesus in human form showed us a picture of God!  In Jesus the perfect image of God Almighty walked this earth seeking to save those He made and deeply loves.  You.

Do you know He offers you deep, unmovable, faithful love?  Do you know that  in relationship with Him, He offers you lasting peace and fullness of joy?

Have you not heard that He offers you rest and freedom from your sin and your guilt?  Do you know that Your Father, Almighty God, maker of heaven and earth offers you ...yes, you!... a pardon from your sin, full and complete forgiveness of all your wrong doings.

Did you know that Jesus, by dying in your place on a cross, took all the punishment that was meant for you?  Your sin deserves punishment, doesn't it?   He took your punishment!?  And, did you know that He conquered death and rose from the grave?  He now sits at the right hand of God the Father!

This Jesus offers you freedom, full freedom, from death!  He offers you freedom from any guilt and shame.  This is what He offers you today and every day.

You need only respond.

You need only to bow your head and say, "I am weak and I am a mess.  I am desperately in need of saving!"  You need only receive His love, His forgiveness and to accept His offer of peace.

Believe in your heart the Jesus is the way to peace.  Believe that He died for your punishment!  Say with your mouth that you believe He rose from grave and conquered death for you!  Confess with your mouth that He is Lord, Creator, Master over all things.

Tell Him you need Him and tell Him you want His fullness of joy today.  Tell Him today that you want to receive His offer of love.
