What We Need!
(c) Gloria S. Schloss 2020
Scriptures: John 3:16 & Matthew 28:18-20
I am hearing all sorts of reasons that people are saying, “This is what America needs right now.”
Truly what America and the entire world needs right now is the Lord, Jesus Christ, or Yeshua, His Hebrew name. Yeshua, the word itself means “Salvation.” Throughout the entire Old Testament, when the word Yeshua was used, it meant “Salvation.”
I also have heard some say they have been on the front lines of dealing with this COVID-19 paralysis because they have “needed to be a part of something bigger than themselves.” We thank God they are there to help us all!
As born-again believers in our Lord, Jesus Christ, we should also believe that we need to be a part of something bigger than ourselves not only during this time but always. During this particular time we do need to help to serve others where and when we can through and by whatever means we can.
We cannot treat this virus and what it is doing, or the effect it is having on peoples of the entire world nonchalantly. We must first hit it head on with the power of prayer and then through whatever means possible as we feel led by our Lord God.
Remember, we have been “Elevated through Christ” to not only a better place after physical death, but we have also been “Elevate through Christ” here on this earth to tell the story of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His saving grace. We can tell the story of His faith, His love and His redemption by our writings, our speaking to others and through our deeds. This unsaved world needs Jesus-Yeshua all the more to ease the anxiety for many lost souls.
Right now, no doubt, many are primed to hear the Good News of the Lord. Lives have been turned upside down and sideways and many do not know where to turn. Or, many turn to drink, drugs, hatefulness, depression, physical abuse or many other things detrimental to themselves or others. Perhaps now will be the time that The Holy Spirit will open up hearts who have never known the Lord and perhaps you are just the one to bring the Good News!
If any, reading this blog, have just popped onto this website and do not know the Lord Jesus as Savior and Lord, please know that He loves you! Please know that no matter what you may have done in the past, He forgives you and welcomes you into His family. All He asks of you is a commitment to acknowledge Him as the Son of God, to ask Him for forgiveness for your past deeds and believe that He died for you, was buried an conquered death having risen from the grave to life again.
Believe in these things and say them from the heart and you, too, will be saved and will live forever in a home not made by man and live eternally with God! In the Holy Bible, John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” This means you!
If you made this commitment today, Praise our Lord for the gift you have now received. For you, too, have been “Elevated through Christ” for and to a far better place. You are now righteous because He is righteous and now He and The Holy Spirit live within you.
We do understand you may not know what to do or where to start following this commitment, especially in this uncertain time. If so, and you have no one you can presently contact to help you move forward, please contact us by email at email@example.com
and we will assist you as we can. We will pray for you and send you a few things if you forward us your name and address.
For those of you who have just accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, we ask God’s blessings and guidance on you and your family.
For those of you who already know Jesus personally, we pray for you to use this time to witness and to be a part of something bigger in your life by completely yielding to His guidance and His message of Matthew 28:18-20.
With Love in Christ Jesus,
