Godly Principles #89 Choose to Believe That God Sent His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ and Receive Eternal Life

John 3:14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”

Ephesians 1:7 In him (Jesus) we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace

WHO ARE YOU?

Who are you that God knows the numbers of hairs on your head and thinks of you more than the grains of sand on the beach.  That your spouse chose you to spend their time with. That your children love.  Your friends want to do things with you.  Who are you?   YOU ARE BLESSED!   God loves you so much.
