POWER TO BECOME
God said in the Bible that "we are like sheep who have gone astray" and that "all of us have sinned and fall short of His glory." He also said that the "result of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." He says that if we turn from our sin knowing that Jesus paid the penalty for our sin on the cross and receive Him into our heart and life, He will give us the power to become His children. That power is His Holy Spirit's giving us new life from heaven. We are born again and become "new creatures in Christ Jesus." And, because we have spiritual life, which is the life of God, we shall live with Him forever.
We not only receive eternal life, but as His children we love Him and receive His love...and that makes it possilbe to become willing to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.
WILLING TO LOVE
Love really is something we do...it is something we must be willing to do. If we are willing to love God, tell Him so. If we have never repented of our sin and received Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, do so today. We will see our life begin to change as the love and power of God begin to flow through us to others. We will see old things pass away and all things become new as we love God and accept His love and truly become a new person in Jesus Christ
