Reading: Romans 10: 9
It seems so simple: confess that Jesus is Lord and believe that He was raised from the dead after dying on the cross and you will have eternal life. What a gift that is! To know that you will spend eternity with our Father and Creator is good news indeed. Some people fear death, but as Christians we do not need to fear death. Death was overcome on the first day of the week so many years ago.
There are those who do not believe in Christ who think that there must be more you have to do to have those eternal promises. But, it is very simple. And that simplicity is repeated throughout the Bible. If you know someone who doesn't believe, encourage them to read the scriptures. Hopefully, they will see the simplicity and the gift God's has given. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Discuss with others or meditate on this quote by Henry Ford, "Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eye off the goal."
