I believe when a person surrenders their life to Jesus . . . when they admit they need a Savior, ask for forgiveness of their sin, and asks Jesus to come into their hearts they are immediately forgiven of their sin . . .
I believe when a person comes to the cross poor in spirit they are a part of the Kingdom of God . . .
I believe once you are a child of God you are always a child a God . . .
I believe spending eternity with Jesus Christ is as real for the believer as much as spending hell in eternity is as real for the unbeliever . . .
I believe . . . because you made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ, asked Him to come into your heart and forgive you of your sins . . . that you were instantly in His presence the second you took your last breath.
I can see the excitement in your eyes to come face to face with your Savior.
I can see how you would clasp your hands in excitement and raise your hands with praise.
The Lord brought you to mind three weeks ago. I’m sorry I didn’t reach out.
You are loved.
Jackie’s favorite scripture was I Corinthians 13. Her grandmother taught it to her. Please be praying for her grandmother, her mom and stepdad, her stepmom and dad, her brothers, her sister, and her daughter.
If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift ofprophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails . . . But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love
Addiction is real. You don’t have to be alone in this journey.
Rest In Peace, Jackie.
