Does God love, Does He exist?
"Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me." Mark 10:21
The story was about a wealthy man who stated he had kept the commandments about all of his life. Jesus stated that he lacked one more thing and that was to help those who were less fortunate than himself. The Bible says he was sad as he. went away.
Its' a familiar story but sometimes we fail to focus on one very important part:
"Then Jesus beholding him loved him."
The Bible says in Romans 8:39:
"Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
People always say, "prove to me that God exists and that He loves me!" I'll go ya one better! Prove it to your self! Here's how. Jesus said in John 14:23:
"...If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him."
All you have to do is this: just let Him know you're sorry for all sin, and tell someone about your belief in Him! From your heart, believe and confess your belief in Jesus as the Son of God, that He was crucified and raised from the dead. Here's what the scripture says:
"9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
That's when The Holy Spirit comes and makes Himself real to us. Then you will know He's real and that God does exist. The Lord Himself comes to make you His temple and lives inside your heart! He will help you understand the Bible and know His ways. Do you believe? Then just let Him know you're sorry for all sin, and tell someone about your belief in Him!
He really does love and He really does forgive!

“O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.”
Psalms 105:1 KJV
I have heart disease, that I was quickly reminded of, when I tried to help bring a sofa up a flight of stairs. Chest pain and shortness of breath swiftly caused me to sit and rest. After a few minutes I was feeling better but still had a little chest tightness that eventually eased.
I’ve previously had a failed open heart surgery in which one artery was not bypassed. The good news is that a small heart attack may be beneficial, taking away the issue of stable angina. The bad news, is that would HURT lol. The sad news is that, I continue to have chest pain with exertion and another heart attack is going to happen at some point. That is, unless the Lord totally heals my heart.
Anyway, After four heart attacks and one on the way, I had to quit my job, sell the house and moved into the RV. I didn’t get disability until two years later. If it had not been for God working through his children in Florida, we would have been on the street! They are beautiful people who love the Lord and they were a huge blessing to my wife and I.
Since then, and after a lot of prayer and after God allowed the disability to come through, He miraculously, allowed us to buy a home, with NO DOWN PAYMENT and DECREASED INTEREST. And just like God, it’s much better than the one we had to give up. And!, ALL of the expenses are much less than before!
The wife now has a newer vehicle!! Plus, I was able to keep my truck through all of this!
The best news is, I’m still able to minister with my music. God’s people are always willing to carry in equipment when I’m alone. Other times my wife, Ruby, does most of the work. In most cases, Ruby will have all the equipment torn down AND loaded! All while I’m still shaking hands and saying goodbye to folks at the product table! She’s such a hard worker and I’m blessed with a wonderful wife! I love you baby!
So yes! Indeed: “O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.”
Psalms 105:1 KJV

We are freely justified by his grace!!
Romans 3:23-24 King James Version (KJV)
“23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:”
Sin came by one man, Adam and Grace came by one man, Jesus Christ! We can’t undo the curse of sin, only Jesus can do that! And He did! On the Cross of Calvary!! The Lord willingly shed His Blood on the Cross and therefore taking the punishment that we so definitely deserved!! And now, His Grace abounds!! All that is needed is for us to believe!!!
Romans 10:9-10 King James Version (KJV)
“9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
So then, who can be saved? ALL who call upon the name of our Lord!
Romans 10:13 King James Version (KJV)
“13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
All who believe that Jesus is Lord and repent of their sin shall be saved!! Jesus is the only way to escape the horrible guilt of sin!! No matter how well you live, your sin debt is still alive and well unless you accept Jesus Christ as Savior! He and only Him can free you and justify you!! Jesus died on the Cross of Calvary for YOU!!! The debt has already been paid for you and all you need to do is be sorry for your sins and believe that He is the Son of God! Believe that He died for your sins on the Cross and that He arose from the dead just three days later. Pray now and invite Him into your heart! Tell Him you believe and ask Him to forgive you and be YOUR Savior. Please, don’t wait, do it now while you still can. As long as there is breath in your body, you can call on Jesus and He WILL forgive you. Amen and Amen!!!
