BEING GOOD ALONE DOES NOT COUNT



The fact that people are good or kind hearted does not mean they will not go to hell if they have never accepted Jesus Christ into their heart as their Lord and Saviour. Salvation is free and every one needs Jesus Christ. Be you rich, poor, educated, uneducated , black, or white, we all need Jesus Christ. Heaven and hell is real and if it's not, I will rather prepare by accepting Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour and commit to living right, then find myself in heaven if it's truly real than live my life carelessly without Christ and end up in hell.

As a young woman living in Nigeria, I find life some times very challenging but knowing God and living a Christ centered life makes all the difference. I don't want to remain your friend only on earth my dear friend and family, I want to see you in heaven some day, so please do me a favour, invite Jesus Christ into your life now by simply saying " Dear Lord Jesus, I invite you into my life, I acknowledge that you died for me on the cross, forgive my sins, cleanse me with your blood and make me a brand new person in Jesus name amen.

Hey! Welcome to my world, born again child of God, there is great rejoicing in heaven over you turning your life to Christ. To continue in Christ, you need to read your bible if you have one or get one to read and learn to pray. Prayer is simply communicating with God, just as you talk to people around you, you can talk to God, ask Him questions and yes He will answer you through His words in the bible, through other believers or even by speaking directly to your heart and ears.
To grow in the ways of God, I will recommend you read through the first 5 books of the new testament to know more about the person of Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit. Look for a bible believing church or fellowship and be with other Christians that can encourage you to grow in Christ.

I am just a message away if you have any question....yes, I can sense someone saying Bridget, you don't know me, I have done so many bad things and God can not forgive me...hey, I have been bad too, if God can make something beautiful out of my life, then He is just waiting for you to come to Him and let Him know you are ready to be His child.

I can hear someone saying, Bridget, Christians are too stuffy, uptight etc, I want to have fun and give my life when I am old, my dear, you may not make tomorrow, only God knows those that will be alive the next minute, so decide now and commit to Christ. Besides being a Christian is so much fun, you live your life with eternity in view, knowing that everything you do, you do with joy, no condemnation and you can cast all your cares on Jesus Christ too knowing He will take care of them.

Remember what you call fun now is sin. The booze, drugs, and all other worldly pleasure will fade away for reality to dawn and make you see you have been wasting away...hmmm, may God help you to decide right and live right. God bless you. Know that this is a message of love as I care to make sure you spend eternity with Christ. I love you with the love of God but I know God loves you more...
