Sitting out side. I have the sun setting at my back, the moon to the right of me (Kelsey Raffaele) reading the book of Romans. Life is good.....
Romans 11 7--15: And don't say, "who will go down to the place of the dead? (to bring Christ back to life again)." In fact it says "The message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart." And that message is the very message about faith that we preach: 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. For it is believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you ar saved. As the scriptures tell us, "Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. For Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be Saved."
But how can they call on him to save them unless they BELIEVE in him? And how can they BELIEVE in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? This is why the Scriptures say, "How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good News".
So, I am your messenger tonight. BELIEVE in the Lord, please, and you will be saved and live forever. I BELIEVE, and I know I will get that long waited hug from the Lord and my Kelsey.
