2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
Every time a new year rolls around, folks begin to think about things they can change in their lives. Some people say that they are going to lose weight and start eating healthy. Others say that they are going to go back to college or get out of debt. Some say that they are going to write a book or start their own business. And others commit to getting organized or spending more time with family and friends.
During this time of year, the thoughts of many people turn toward the matter of gift-giving and receiving. Collectively, we spend a good deal of money and time going from store to store to get the “perfect” gift for people we love or people we simply want to impress.
On this Thanksgiving, I thank God for the talents and gifts that He has bestowed upon my family and me and that is no doubt the reason why I love to see people do what they are truly talented and gifted by God to do. It is a blessing to see singers, musicians, actors, actresses, athletes in all sports, writers, speakers, business people, doctors, cooks, auto mechanics, lawyers, and leaders of all types seemingly without effort and almost flawlessly doing what they were given by God the talents and the gifts to do.
My Friend: Io ti chiedo la domanda più importante della vita. La tua gioia o il tuo dolore per tutta l’eternità dipendono la vostra risposta. La domanda è: sei salvato? Non è una questione di quanto sei bravo, non se sei un membro della chiesa, ma stai salvati? Sei sicuro che andare in Paradiso quando si muore?
My Friend: I am asking you the most important question of life. Your joy or your sorrow for all eternity depends upon your answer. The question is: Are you saved? It is not a question of how good you are, nor if you are a church member, but are you saved? Are you sure you will go to Heaven when you die?
Caro Amico, questo articolo è principalmente per persone che hanno già entrati attraverso la “porta” di vita accettando Gesù Cristo come loro Salvatore. Se non avete accettato Gesù Cristo come tuo personale Salvatore come ancora, si prega di farlo oggi, semplicemente credendo in Gesù Cristo – che Egli è morto per te, che fu sepolto ed è risuscitato, e chiamando il suo nome per salvarvi. “Per chiunque avrà invocato il nome del Signore sarà salvato.”
Dear Friend, this article is primarily for people who have already entered through the “Door” of Life by accepting Jesus Christ as their Saviour. If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour as of yet, please do so today by simply believing in Jesus Christ – that He died for you, that He was buried and rose again, and by calling on His Name to save you. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
