To help guide people through problems using biblical application
John 8:12 (KJV) Then spake Jesus again into them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
John 14: 6 (KJV) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Romans 3:23 (KJV) For all have come short of the glory of God;
Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV) 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not of works, lest any man should boast.
We all need saving from the punishment we deserve as sinners, but through God’s infinite love and mercy, he offers eternal life through His son Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ lived a perfect life because we cannot. By accepting Jesus’ death on the cross, burial, and resurrection, you can have ‘Eternal Life’. Accept your Saving Grace Today!
Question: “What is saving grace?” (Borrowed from Got Questions?.org)
Answer: As an idiom, “saving grace” refers to a “redeeming quality” that makes a person or a thing acceptable. But that is not the biblical meaning. The word grace in the Bible means “unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification” or “God’s benevolence to the undeserving.” Biblically, “saving grace” is the grace of God that saves a person.
Scripture says that grace, the unearned favor of the Lord, is necessary “because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight” (Romans 3:20 ). The only way to receive God’s saving grace is through faith in Christ: “But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested . . . the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe” (Romans 3:21-22).
Saving grace results in our sanctification, the process by which God conforms us to the image of Christ. At the moment of salvation, by grace through faith, God makes us new creatures (2 Corinthians 5:17). And He promises to never forsake His children: “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6).
We have nothing in ourselves that will commend us to God (Romans 3:10-11)—we have no “saving grace” on our own. Being fundamentally unacceptable to God, we ask, along with Jesus’ disciples, “How can we be saved?” Jesus’ answer is reassuring: “What is impossible with men is possible with God” (Luke 18:26-27). Salvation is God’s work. He gives the grace we need. Our “saving grace” is Christ Himself. His work on the cross is what saves us, not our own merit.
It is easy to think that, by our faith, we contribute in some small way to our salvation. After all, Christ’s merit must be applied to us by faith, and it seems our faith is coming from us. But Romans 3:10-12 says that none of us seek after God. And Ephesians 2:8 says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that [faith] not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.” Hebrews 12:2 says that Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith. God’s saving grace is completely His gift. Even our ability to accept His saving grace is just another gift from God.

The Truth and the Light
Today we are living in the Information Age. Everything about anything, is available with just a few clicks. There is ‘so’ much information that it is nearly impossible to distinguish between truth and lies. Making life decisions becomes confusing. In order to make good decisions, you need good information. You need The Truth! The truth that comes only from God through his word. God’s word has been provided to us in the form of the Holy Bible. Most people are making their decisions based on lies, which often leads to bad results. These results, in turn, create emotional pain and suffering. If you have been making bad decisions that have led to problems or you are suffering due to stress, you are not alone. We can feel isolated, thinking that ‘we’ are the only ones suffering. The reality is, most people are experiencing some form of emotional pain or depression. Many are suffering physical pain as well. Some of these feelings are so strong that there’s a sense of Hopelessness and that somehow you are Bonded to this ‘suffering’. Once you have reached this state, it’s normal for us to seek temporary relief. Many times this relief comes through the use of alcohol, drugs, sex, eating, gambling, pornography, and other forms of physical pleasure. These forms of relief are yet another bad decision and usually result in more emotional pain which becomes a vicious circle that gives you a feeling of imprisonment. This imprisonment may feel like a ‘Life Sentence’ without parole. We want you know that there is a way out of your bondage.
During counseling we will go over some of these feelings in more detail and learn the ways to resolve this conflict going on inside of you. It is not as difficult to overcome as you might think. You only need to have the willingness to open your heart to The Truth.
Everyone will benefit from The Truth. You personally, may not feel any pain or suffering in your life, but perhaps you can identify with some of the feelings. Maybe you have a family member or friend who needs counseling like this. Perhaps you are just curious and would like to learn something new. Either way, please review the ‘entire message’ and determine if you can share it with someone else who might really need it.
The Truth is around you all the time. Most people are deceived so badly that the Truth actually hurts when you hear it the first time. The Truth has a tendency to reveal things that most people do not want to face. In order to make life right again, you may have to experience a certain ‘wake-up call’ prior to any real progress towards resolve. This is common for everyone. Do not let this short-term discomfort hinder you from making a long-term improvement that leads to Eternal Life.
