Greetings in the Name of Jesus,
I Have a question for you today. Are
You Looking for Love? If you are then I can only pray this
morning that each of you will find this ‘something’ so
many are searching for; this thing we call love. So many
folks in this world of hate and wars are in this search
for love. Searching but not completely sure for what they
are searching. You know? Psychologists have long known
that every person has two great longings and inward needs.
The first is to be loved, and the second is to love. But
when pressures and heartaches come into our lives, many
give up any hope of ever finding love.
Does this sound like you today? The
tragedy is that we often look in the wrong places to fill
this deep, deep need and longing. Some folks will
substitute lust for love. Others pursue material things or
superficial relationships. But all are or have been in the
futile search to attempt to fill this God-shaped vacuum in
the human heart; Yes, an emptiness which clings to the
very souls of those who know neither Christ nor His
fulfilling and eternal love.
But have I got some wonderful news
for you today! There is a love worth finding and a love
worth sharing. The Bible says in,
John 3:16. "For God so loved the world, that He gave His
only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should
not perish, but have everlasting life"… On
the cross of Christ, God's mighty love was revealed and
offered unconditionally to all who would be saved and this
mentioned here includes you. Do you long to know this
mighty love? Then I need to ask you the most important
question you'll ever be asked: Do you know beyond a shadow
of a doubt that God loves you, that your sins are
forgiven, and that you are saved and on your way to
heaven? Well dear one, here is a news flash for you this
morning; you can know! Let me share with you how to
discover the greatest love worth finding.
In our search and quest for this true
and sincere love this morning we must consider a few
First we must; Admit Your Sin
You Know? A person can not be found until they first
realize that they are lost. And so we must first admit
that we are a sinner… The Bible says,
"There is none righteous, no,
not one" (Romans 3:10). "For all have sinned, and come
short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).
It is our sin that separates us from God and from
fulfilling our deepest needs and longings. Sin is an
offense against God that carries a serious penalty.
According to my Bible in;
Romans 6:23, For the wages of sin is death;
[eternal separation from the love and mercy of God].
but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ
Second we must; Abandon Your Efforts
You must abandon any efforts to save yourself.
If we could save ourselves, Jesus' death would have been
futile and unnecessary! Even "getting religion"
cannot get you to heaven. The Bible says it is:
Titus 3: 5, 6
5. Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but
according to his [that is God's]
mercy he saved us, by the
washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
6. Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our
7. That being justified by his grace, we should be made
heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
For you see, Salvation is by faith in God's grace and
God’s gift alone.
8. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not
of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9. Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Third we must Acknowledge Christ's Payment
What you cannot do for yourself, Jesus Christ
has done for you! "But God
commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet
sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).
He died on the cross for you and then rose from the dead
to prove that His payment was acceptable to God. But you
must acknowledge and believe this fact.
“And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou
shalt be saved, and thy house. (Acts 16:31”).
Forth in finding true love is: Accept Christ as Your
Savior Salvation is God's gift to you.
“For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus
Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23). When
someone offers you a priceless gift, the wisest thing you
can do is to accept it! This very moment, right where you
are sitting, that’s right you don’t have to be in church
or anywhere else to do this but right now, right where you
are, you can receive Christ's gift of salvation by
sincerely praying this simple prayer from your heart:
I know that I am a sinner. I know that You love me and
want to save me. Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God,
who died on the cross to pay for my sins. I believe God
raised You from the dead. I now turn from my sin and,
believing and by faith, receive You as my personal Lord
and Savior. Come into my heart, forgive my sins, and save
me, Lord Jesus.
For it is in the pure shed blood and most precious Name of
Jesus I pray, Amen.
Friend, if you have been searching to
fill that void in your life and have not yet made that
most important decision in your life, this decision for
Christ, I urge you to receive Him today. And this for sure
is one thing I can personally promise you: You'll be
eternally glad to know that true love worth finding!
Are You Looking for Love? Have you
found it today? Have you prayed that simple yet life
saving prayer of faith? Then, Please write to us at Jim
Keeling Ministries to let us know of your decision to
accept Christ as your Saviour and as the final answer to
your quest and search for true love. For there is nothing
in this life more important than finding that born again
experience of salvation and joy which comes only from God…
We want to rejoice with you...
