I AM ONE
In this universe, the world is full of billions of people all over the planet, yet I AM ONE
In this country, there are hundreds of millions of people scattered everywhere, yet I AM ONE
In my state, there are over 8 million people, on the road, in their cars, walking the streets, at the stores, hustling and bustling everywhere, some wandering and wondering, yet I AM ONE
In my small town there are thousands of people, coming and going, not noticing the person next to them, wandering and wondering, yet I AM ONE
Yes, I AM ONE, one of the billions of people here on this Earth, among you, coming and going, in my car, at the store, going to and from work, yet I do not know you nor do you know me. You are also one.
I was wandering aimlessly, wondering what the truth was, searching for truth in a lying world. I found answers. I know who my Father is, He has been there the whole time, watching me, being patient with me, trying to guide me in His path. Most times I went my own way, knowing it was the wrong way but I wanted it my way. He has been very patient with me because He loves me, He always has. Even before the Earth was in existence He knew me and loved me before I ever knew Him. Some people on this Earth still don’t know their Father, their Creator, who is loving, compassionate and full of mercy and grace. He is still there waiting for you.
There is another you should know about, our Father’s Son, His name is Jesus. God sent Him to this Earth, to each and every single person who walks this Earth, to find us who are lost, to lead us, to save us from our sin, save us from hell, save us from being eternally separated from God our Father.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
He loves you and is still waiting for you, He is at the door waiting, won’t you let Him come in? Let Him into your heart for He is your Father, He is love. He loves us so much that He sent Jesus to this Earth to die a cruel death on the cross to save us from ourselves, save us from our sin and eternal separation from our Father. We can accept His free gift and accept Jesus’ invitation to come to Him to find peace, love, truth, and rest.
Jesus says, “ I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes unto the Father but by Me.” He also says, “Come unto Me all who are weak and heavy laden and I will give you rest, My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
“If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.” You shall never thirst again.
Jesus told this parable, “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.”
I AM ONE who was lost, I AM ONE who needs my Father, I AM ONE who needs Jesus. I AM ONE who has accepted who my real, heavenly Father is!
I AM ONE of His children.
I AM ONE who is loved by my Father in heaven.
I AM ONE who has been saved by grace.
I AM ONE who has accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior.
I AM ONE, one of you, among you. I AM ONE driving in my car on the highway, in the store, at the bank, you may notice me but you don’t know me, nor do I know you, but we can all know our Father in heaven! Please pray to your Father today, Lord, I am a sinner, I accept your Son Jesus Christ as my Savior, please forgive me of my sins, thank You for forgiving me. Help me and guide me, show me the way. Amen.
Read your bible which is God’s Word, and go to church to learn more and be taught the truth, the way and the life! You will be blessed and ONE who is saved, like me.
May God richly bless you as you get to know Him! Amen? AMEN!
