God is so addicted to you and wants you saved, made complete and healed~

Yes, God loves you and He is insanely addicted to you and I, his kids! He wants the very best for us. For many years I thought of God as a far off, very strict and judgmental God. But when I said yes to Jesus and began a relationship with God through His son, Jesus and through daily reading His Word, the Bible, I saw an incredible father’s love in the Old Testament, how God continually forgave Israel and took them back time and time again. Even when they would rebel against Him or turn against God and look to false gods and carved, wooden images for guidance. Then in the New Testament, God sent his son, Jesus, to take our sin punishment for us so we can live forever with Him in eternity! Now God has made it so easy for us to walk with him, to listen to His promptings about decisions we need to make in life and let Him guide us into healthy eating and living.
Our Pastor Jim at Calvary Chapel Vero Beach taught on Romans 10 today. Romans 10:8-14- “But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); 9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. 11 For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. 13 For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Amen! If you have never trusted Christ for salvation, it is available to everyone at anytime-eternal life is on the tip of your tongue! God’s will for all of us is to be saved-the original Greek NT word is ‘soteria’, which means deliverance, salvation, to be made whole, healed, preserved, delivered and prosperous. And Jesus has made it so simple and available to all. Thank you Lord for my salvation and healing of my unhealthy addictions!
Have you received Christ? Have you declared Jesus is Lord and believed that God raised him from the dead to forgive your sins?? Do it today and have eternal life and the Holy Spirit to help you with everything in life~including your faith and fitness:)
