No Place Like Here
This album is all about a place called 'here'.... where there's total joy. Where there's peace that transcends human understanding...new strength... refreshing.... No-one would refuse such an experience! 'Here' is available to us all, and yet so few have found it! Many are seeking these benefits but looking in all the wrong places...in money, fame, achievement, drugs, alcohol, relationships, etc. But that place can only be experienced in the presence of God! When we worship Him, His presence comes and surrounds us, and it's awesome! But His presence will only come if you have a relationship with Him through Jesus Christ, His Son. If you cannot say for sure that you have experienced His presence ('here') then perhaps you do not know the One who gives true life - life that's eternal. If that's the case, I challenge you to read on, because you're not only missing out on the best thing in life, but you're also in great danger! Why? The Bible says that there is one appointment that you and I cannot cancel - the appointment with death (Hebrews 9:27). After this life, when you stand before the great judgment throne, will you be found guilty or innocent? Outside of Christ, we're all guilty before God: we have all sinned and rebelled against His Laws. We all deserve an eternity of punishment for our sins. But all of God's wrath (which you and I deserved) was poured on Jesus Christ on the cross, instead of on us. He died so that you and I could go free. HE LOVED US THAT MUCH (See John 3:16)! Now we must turn away from our sins and our own ways and receive Christ as our Saviour, and live to please Him only. Then and only then will we experience eternal life once this life is over, and escape the horrible fate of eternal torment in hell. And of course, in the meantime we can experience His presence here on earth! I encourage you to receive Christ right now. Don't put it off. Today may be your last opportunity. It's not by accident that you're reading this. Pray this simple prayer out loud and mean it with all your heart: 'God, I have sinned against you. I recognize that only Jesus can save me from my sins. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for my sins. Jesus, please save me from my sins. Take over every area of my life. Help me to live for you only every day. Amen.'
