ETERNAL LIFE purchased!

“I am the way and the truth and the life. 
No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Jesus (John 14:6)

How to receive eternal life …
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 
“For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.  Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 
This is the verdict:
“Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 
But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.”

(John 3:16-21)

Jesus’ Prayer Before His Arrest and Crucifixion …
“I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they [the apostles] may have the full measure of my joy within them.  I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world.
My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.  They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.  
Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.  As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.  For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
“My prayer is not for them alone. through thI pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,that all of them may be one,Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
“Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”
— Jesus Christ (John 17:13-26, New International Version of the Bible)

A Message from Paula:

You don’t need to say a fancy prayer or have someone lead you in a prayer that someone else wrote. You don’t have to join a denominational church. Simply talk to God with a sincere heart. Tell Him that you are sorry for the intentionally sinful things in your life — past and present — then ask Him to come into your heart (the organ that pumps life giving blood through your veins). Ask for His forgiveness. 

Now Trust Him to fulfill this promise: “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 that person, and they with me.” — Jesus (Revelation 3:20)

If you would like me to pray for you, please send me a message @ https://plus.google.com/117219524170982302798.

May God’s peace fill your heart and mind with new understanding and divine knowledge. Amen!

“And they sang a new song, saying:
“You [Jesus] are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals,
because you were slain,
    and with your blood you purchased for God
    persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.
You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God,
    and they will reign on the earth.”

(Revelation 5:9-10)
