The Christian walk entails a complete paradigm lifestyle change, that affects EVERY area of our life…
It’s not a religion and it’s not about going to church every now and again and/or having a passive intellectual belief in God’s existence!
Among other things, the Bible, which is called the Old and New testament (which is 66 books) contains our contract, i.e. our covenant with God; and as such, it tells us of our rights and privileges, and it also tells us what our responsibilities are and what God expects from us.

“Leave outcomes up to Me!
Follow Me wherever I lead, without worrying about how it will all turn out.
Think of your life as an adventure, with Me as your Guide and Companion.
Live in the now, concentrating on staying in step with Me.”
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”
This Christian walk requires our walking in 24/7 fellowship and communion with our Creator; it is what we each have been designed for and it’s why we have been created.
Without that God connection in our life, we are ALL like fish, flopping around on the shores of life, looking for our way back home.
It is our primary responsibility that sometime between when we are born and when we depart this life that we establish this link with God and that we be reconciled back into God’s family; and it is our acceptance and obedience to the Gospel Message and our faith in Yeshua (Jesus), who is the Christ (MessIah), that makes this happen.
As Jesus Himself said, “There is no other way into heaven, excepted through Him!”
[See the following references: 1 Timothy 2:5-6, 1 John 2:23, 1 John 5:10-12, 1 John 5:20, John 5:23, Ephesians 4:4, Matthew 11:27, Acts 4:12, John 14:6, Romans 3:24, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17]
You see, the reason why this is the Grand Adventure of our lifetime, is because it is the ONLY thing that will satisfy us and fill that huge void that we each have inside our heart.
There is no middle ground here and there is no sitting on the fence (Mat 12:30).
Jesus made it very clear that if we wish to save our life, then it will be necessary for us to lose it, for His namesake; in other words, we are required daily to surrender our lives and our will to His service (Luke 17:33 and 1 John 2:6).
So how about it, are you game or not to enter into this Grand Adventure?
This is totally your decision and you have to decide.
Truly this is the most important decision any of us will make in our lifetime, and the fact is none of us knows the date and time of our departure from this earth.
So with that in mind, just understand this one thing, that there is an expiration date, and your window of opportunity to accept this offer gets more narrow with the passing of each day.
And this offer will terminate upon your death.
Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Savior
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD!
