Jesus is Here

John 3:1-21 "But whoever lives by the truth comes into the
light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done
through God
." (vs 21)

All through the Bible, God takes the initiative in the salvation of man.
None of us who are saved have sought Him out; we've just responded to His
initiative. He made the first move. He chose to save us, and then we
chose to respond." (Charles Stanley--Early Light)

Jn 3:16 - God sent His Son
vs 17 - God sent His Son to save the world

It is easy to be deceived into thinking God doesn`t care about us, as we sinfully look to ourselves for answers, and thus FAIL. God cares about us so much He sent His only Son to take the punishment for our sins.

Lets stop sitting around waiting for Jesus to show up. Jesus is here. He`s been calling and waiting for us all along.

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

--Matthew 7:7
