HOW TO LOVE GOD
There is no greater frustration in this world than
trying to act good, when we are not good. God knows and
understands that if we see Jesus Christ as only an example
of how to love God, we are of all people most miserable, for
we cannot in our own power imitate His life.
Let me quickly assert that He promises you His power.
In John 1:12 the Bible says: "And as many as received Him
to them gave He power to become the sons of God." I hope

(Romans 10:8-9 TEV). To accept the salvation God offers,
to be born again, you must do two things, you must be-
lieve and you must confess. Your belief must be in Jesus
Christ and your confession must be addressed to Jesus
Christ. You must believe that He can forgive you and save
you. But that is not all, you must ask Him to forgive
you and to save you. You can do that right now. Ask Christ
to be your Saviour a ...
