Jesus decides who comes into his kingdom.

John 1:1-13 (ESV)

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him.
8 He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light.
9 The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him.
11 He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.
12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,
13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.


Man does not decide follow Jesus. Jesus decides who comes into his kingdom. Jesus came as a man to die for us. We are born by Holy Spirit.

    Paul,

    The gospel is amazing in that it can be summed up in a few sentences as you have just done. Yet the gospel is so profound that it merits a lifetime of study and an eternity of basking in the riches of God’s grace. (Ephesians 2:7) That day is nearer than when we first believed. Thank you for your prayers for my ministry over the years. God is giving a wide open door of service in the church we attend now and I will chair the CE committee soon. We will join the church this Sunday.

    Your brother and best friend,
    Dick
