This morning when the Lord opened a window to
Heaven, He saw me, and asked:
"My child, what is your greatest wish for today?"
"Lord please, take care of the person
who is reading this message,
Their family and their special
friends they deserve it and
I love them very much.
"The love of God is like the ocean,
You can see its beginning, but not its end.
To know God and be ready for heaven,
follow these steps:
A. Admit you are a sinner
"There is no one righteous, not even one ...
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
" Romans 3:10,23. (See Romans 5:8; 6:23.)
Ask God's forgiveness
"Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
B. Believe in Jesus
(put your trust in Him) as your only hope of salvation.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 (See John 14:6.)
Become a child of God by receiving Christ
"To all who receive him, to those who believed in his name,
he gave the right to become children of God." John 1:12 (See Revelation 3:20.)
C. Confess that Jesus is your Lord
"If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that
God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved." Romans 10:9 (See verse 10.)

Early Start on Christmas
Read Luke 1:1 through 2:52
Published: Sep 25, 2017
Gayle looked across the store and noticed Christmas decorations already on display. “Seriously! It’s three months until Christmas. Why can’t they wait for Thanksgiving first?” she muttered. Later while unloading her groceries she began to think about the truth of Christ—God’s promised Savior coming to the world. She remembered the message the angels proclaimed to the shepherds.
“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord” (Luke 2:11).
The Jewish people yearned for the coming Messiah to deliver them from the harsh realities of Roman rule. Some false messiahs arose to attempt to win the allegiance of the people and had some success. However, they weren’t able to give people the peace and joy they desired. God sent Jesus to be born in Bethlehem, live a sinless life, die on a cross to pay for humanity’s sin, and rise from the dead.
The challenges of life cannot compare with the joy people can discover in the gift of Jesus Christ.
Challenge for Today: Rejoice in the truth that the Savior loves you no matter the challenge.
Quicklook: Luke 2:8–14
