I’ve wanted to write a book; ‘Everything I Know about God I Learned in the First 5 Minutes’. Of course that’s silly. But not entirely.
A child comes into the world with all of the essentials. He doesn’t yet know how to use them to full potential of course, but his fingers will get stronger and his tongue will begin to form sounds that people understand. He is born into the world equipped just waiting for the chance.
And you came into this world with the essentials to begin a relationship with your Creator.
Faith is essential. –“…without faith it is impossible to please God…” – Hebrews 11:6
You’ve got some. – “…God has given to every man a measure of faith.” – Romans 12:3
Pre-packaged with Faith. For what? You were born with a tongue to talk and legs to walk. Why were you born with a measure of faith? To be saved! –saved from a life and an eternity, separated from the God who made you.
It’s like this…(In 5 Minutes)
Things are broke … you included.
God can fix things … you included.
He’s already done the heavy lifting … The Cross.
Your part is to Look to Him … in Faith.
“…if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
There it is, in five minutes! But dear friend, it is only the beginning…
“I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will
be faithful to complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.“–
