If you are not a Christ follower this may be the most important message you receive in your life. I don’t think anything happens by accident. If you happen to come across this website, and you have come to this page it is not just happenstance. I believe that you came here through God’s guidance.
Christians are not perfect people. Unfortunately in my experience I often meet many that turn off nonbelievers very quickly. I am sure that I may have slipped up and said the wrong things to people that I was trying to reach as well. But in reality all of that does not matter. What does matter is that Jesus is perfect and God, our Father, sent him to redeem us of our sins. Might sound complicated, and yes at one time it was to me as well.
The Bible has many passages that support accepting Christ as your only way to God and eternity in heaven. If you are not a Bible believer, I strongly suggest you do due diligence and discover its validity. Many non-bible believers when presented with the facts are flabbergasted as to the authenticity of the Bible. I have heard people say “Why did I not discover this 10 years ago!” It’s amazing that if you truly seek the truth, what you will discover. One book that helped me navigate the authenticity of the Bible is The New Evidence That Demands a Verdict, and the best book that will inspire you with the truth of Christ is The Case for Christ.
A few passages that have always kept me grounded as a Christian are from the book of John:
John 3:16-18 NIV
16For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
18Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
Do you have an “Eternity Contract”?
The term “Eternity Contract” is used by some (like me!) Christ Followers that have accepted Christ as their savior. The contract is between the person and God. You accept Christ – and God will grant you eternity in heaven with him.
Receiving an Eternity Contract is not complicated. The problem is Religion has made it complicated through the intervention of man. Many religious denominations added to the Bible for their convenience. Receiving an Eternity Contract requires that you whole heartedly surrender your life to Christ, something you may have done already but did not do so outwardly through a prayer to God. A good example of surrendering yourself to God is using the Sinners Prayer, see below:
Sinner’s Prayer – Recognizing the Need
The “Sinner’s Prayer” is a term that describes the words spoken by a person when he or she has recognized their sin and their need for a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. It goes something like this:
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ, died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
Life as a Christ Follower
If you decided to repent of your sins and receive Christ today, welcome to God’s family. Now, as a way to grow closer to Him, the Bible tells us to follow up on our commitment.
- Tell someone else about your new faith in Christ.
- Spend time with God each day. It does not have to be a long period of time. Just develop the daily habit of praying to Him and reading His Word. Ask God to increase your faith and your understanding of the Bible.
- Seek fellowship with other followers of Jesus. Develop a group of believing friends to answer your questions and support you.
- Find a local Bible based church where you may worship and feel comfortable.
That’s it. That’s all that needs to be done. Once done, your good to go! Now the challenge is to continue to live a life that is honorable to God. But time and time again we will make mistakes, learn from those mistakes work to not repeat them and live a life reflective of Christ. As you grow in Christ you will develop stronger moral character and will make positive life choices.
We have received a wonderful response to the launch of our concept of getting Christ into the workplace. We are amazed at the number of “Likes” we received on our Facebook Page! We are equally impressed by the number of followers on Twitter. We have an unwritten rule- If you follow us on Twitter we will be kind and follow you back. The problem is it is hard to keep up with all the tweets; we could probably hire one person just to do that full time. We are also thankful for all our friends and acquaintances that have connected through LinkedIn; I am blessed to have developed such a wonderful network of people.
Help get the word out!
Many of you have responded with Wow! What a great concept- Assisting Christian companies to be just that… Christian companies. Companies not afraid to proclaim Christ in the workplace. I appreciate the response. I also have been asked quite a bit about what you the reader can do to help me with this concept. If you really want to help- you can simply do the following in helping me to set the groundwork, and solid foundation to what I feel God may lead me to do next.
- “Like” us on Facebook. That way you will get updates. Tell all your friends about us! Post a link on your Facebook and ask that they “Like” us as well.
- Sign up for updates on our home page. Go to the right side of the page and enter your e-mail address into the “KEEP IN TOUCH” form.
- Tell your Pastor about In HIS Name HR. Let them know I am willing to present to members of their congregation especially Christian Business leaders our presentation on how to build “Kingdom Minded Companies”. This presentation is FREE, although if you are in California I may need to ask for some remuneration to defray travel expenses.
- If you work for a Christian company- Tell your leadership about us.
- Pray for us- Ask God to help me and my Ministry of spreading the good news.
