There is hope in the promise of the cross,                                  You gave everything to save the world You love.                                                Hillsong Live - "Anchor" 

God loves you. He knows you. Even if you don't know Him, He knows you and He loves you. He gave His only son Jesus to die for you; and because He did, there is hope. Hope for all humanity. A hope that will never fail. A hope that is in the promise of the cross. The cross holds a relentless promise that was displayed by a selfless act of love, a love that paid the price for all sin. Because Jesus took our place on the cross by paying the price for our sin, we now have an eternal hope that is in Jesus. A hope that can be ours by placing all of our trust in Jesus. The bible says in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, so that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life."  God desires to have a personal relationship with you, and meet you where you are. So if you do not know Him or He is not a part of your life, I encourage you to make Him Lord of your life. Invite Jesus into your heart, ask Him to forgive you of your sins and be Lord of your life! You can do that by praying this simple prayer, "Dear Jesus, thank You for dying on the cross to forgive me of all of my sins. I believe that You died on the cross, rose from the dead three days later, and You are still alive today. Please come into my heart and forgive me of all of my sins. I want to make You Lord of my life. Help me to live my life for You. In Jesus' name, Amen." If you prayed this simple prayer to make Jesus Lord of your life, congratulations! I want to encourage you to grow in your faith and in your relationship with God; and always remember that no matter what, Jesus loves you!
