“Someone said that in each life some rain is bound to fall, and each one sheds his share of tears and trouble troubles us all. But the hurt can’t hurt forever, and the tears are bound to dry, and it won’t rain always, the clouds will soon be gone. The sun that they’ve been hiding has been there all along, and it won’t rain always. God’s promises are true. The sun’s gonna shine in His own good time, and He will see you through.” Bill and Gloria Gaither, 1980

If God has spoken to your heart after reading the sermon right now talk to God about what He has spoken to you.
Do you have the assurance that one day you will go to heaven? If you have no assurance that you know Jesus Christ, then I trust you will decide to accept Him as your personal Savior. The Bible tells us in
Acts 16:31, “…Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved…”
Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
This prayer is here for those who need to ask Jesus to be their personal Savior: “I do want to go to Heaven. I know I am a sinner, and I do believe Jesus Christ died for me. I realize I cannot buy this great salvation, nor can I earn it. Knowing Jesus died on the cross and arose from the grave to pay my sin debt and to purchase my salvation, I do now trust Him as my Savior, and from this moment on I am completely depending on Him for my salvation.”
If you made the decision to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, please let me know. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you some literature that will help you in your Christian life.
