The Best Gift Of All!!!!

God promises us all salvation!
God gave his ONLY son who died for all of US.
Imagine this, to have your only son die for others' sins.
Amazing!

We are promised salvation should we choose it.
Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me." (John 14:6)
Glory be to God! The promise of eternal life is such a gift!! God reaches out in love to you and wants you to be His child. All you have to do is accept Christ as your Savior and believe in Him.
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and it is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God." (Ephesians 2:8)
Isn't that the best gift ever?
Thank you, God, for the best gift in the world!!!
I have said before, faith gets me through my days. Though I grieve, cry, and my heart breaks each day over losing my son - it is by the grace of God that I keep going. It is all about that one word .....
FAITH!!!!
Happy Easter!!!!
Jordan, give our Father a hug from us!!!!!! We love you all!!! Till we see each other again...
always and forever...forever you'll be my baby to me!!

Oh Becky, I am thinking of you this weekend. I am so thankful we have a Father in Heaven who is always there for us. You are an amazing woman and I am so glad you are my friend. You are an inspiration to many and I believe God is going to use that for his glory...we are all just his servants.

Hugs,

What a wonderful son. I bless you today as you remember him. My son has been with Jesus for 13 years. I can still remember his wonderful laugh!
May God bless and keep you and give you peace.

Some want to believe that there are many ways to heaven...
BUT, God sent His ONLY Son, Jesus, to DIE for me and all who would believe on Him.
Would you have sent your precious, only Son, to die for sinners, if there had been any other way?!?
I don't think so.
My sister reminded me of this just this week. Her only son died in a car accident right after Easter 4 years ago. 21 years old.
She knows the deep pain of losing a precious, only son.
Her faith has only been strengthened through her loss.
What a testimony you have, Becky. Thanks for sharing your faith and your hope.

Happy Easter...
