"COME, FOLLOW ME," JESUS SAID, "AND I WILL MAKE YOU FISHERS OF MEN." Matthew 4:19 (New International Version)
Not what you expected? Sorry about that, but I thought this might be a good opportunity for me to let you know that not only am I bound to a high ethical standard by virtue of my appointment as an officer of the state, but I also strive to maintain a high moral and ethical standard because I am a Christian. Does that mean I'm perfect and never make mistakes? NO!!! Romans 3:23 states, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God," and I'm no exception. I mess up everyday, but what a blessing that I have a Lord that loves me and is ready and willing to forgive me. I need only to ask. He's always there for me, ready to listen to my problems and fears, to lift me up when I'm down, to comfort me when I'm troubled. He's got everything under control!
Are you lacking purpose or direction in your life? Are you lonely? Depressed? Does everything seem to go wrong? Are you burdened with family troubles or drugs or alcohol or any other problem that just seems too big for you to handle? NOTHING is too big for Jesus! If you don't know Him, I'd like to introduce you to Him! What have you got to lose? In Revelation 3:20, Jesus says, "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me." He *WANTS* to know you! First, go to this link and read about the Four Spiritual Laws:
If you prayed the prayer, Jesus is now in your life. It's that easy! Now consider seeking out a church in your community. It doesn't matter which church, as long as it's a Bible-believing Christian church. Meet the pastor and share your good news that you just accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, and find out what opportunities the church offers to help you grow as a Christian. You've just made the most important and life-changing decision you'll ever make. I promise you won't regret it!
