The Believers Share

Acts 2:43 The apostles were doing many miracles and signs. And everyone felt great respect for God. 44 All the believers stayed together. They shared everything.45 They sold their land and the things they owned. Then they divided the money and gave it to those people who needed it. 46 The believers met together in the Temple every day. They all had the same purpose. They broke bread in their homes, happy to share their food with joyful hearts. 47 They praised God, and all the people liked them. More and more people were being saved every day; the Lord was adding those people to the group of believers.

Do you want to believe? Here is your opportunity to Pray!

Father, I ask you in Jesus Name ...

I pray for the person reading this now that they know that it is by no accident that they have come to this place in their life at this exact time; but rather it is a miracle that you have drawn them to believe in the love that you have sent for them. 

Father, allow them to sense your presence to believe that you have prepared this message for them that they will have faith to know and believe in the power of your love that is for them.

If you are reading this right now, then know that God has drawn you here and I am praying for you right now.

Hold your hand over this screen to meet with mine and pray this prayer with me as I pray to render Salvation to come to you in this moment.

Just talk with God:

I believe  even though I can't see you; I believe because you know me. 

I believe that even though I can't understand all things completely; I believe you love me just as I am.

I believe that I am a sinner; and I believe you love me anyway. 

I believe that you don't like what I do all the time, but that you do love me!

Even now, just as I am you love me, yet I believe there will be things you will want to change in me, but I believe you love me, so I trust you to lead and guide me.

Because I desire my life that you have given me, I am willing to place my faith, hope and trust in you, my mighty God!  I desire what you desire for me, because I believe you love me.  I desire to get to know you as my Father, and I believe in your Son, Jesus that He died for me that I can.

I believe that you loved me so much that you sent your only begotten Son to die for me.  

I believe that you sent Jesus, because he was the only one who was qualified to save me from my sins.

I believe that by His death, burial and resurrection, my spiritual death was canceled by Your love for me.

I believe Jesus died on the cross for my sins.  I believe that Jesus died, was buried and three days later was risen from the dead to life by your power.  I ask you Father for your Holy Spirit to raise me up to this life with you in the Name of Jesus, I ask and I pray.  And, I thank you that you hear my prayer in Jesus Name.

I believe that Jesus is alive and I believe that Jesus lives with you; and I believe Heaven is awaiting me when I depart from this life I have known, but I thank you that I am blessed to know and believe in eternal life with you, because I believe Jesus has given His life for me that I shall not be lost to spiritual death.

I believe that because Jesus lives, I also live.  Thank you for saving me from the curse of death, because of sin; I now believe I am fully forgiven. 

Thank you for giving me life.  Teach me your way and bring understanding to me in your truth.  In Jesus Name, I pray.  Amen.

Friend, I believe if you prayed that prayer from your heart, you have received the gift from God called Salvation.  I thank God for you and I praise God for the power of His abiding Love that lives in you now.  

Notice that you didn't have to physically die to be released from the power of sin that is in this world, but Jesus did for you.  However, now that you have been given this new spiritual life with God even now, you will have steps to take in this world to make LIVING SACRIFICES daily, because of whom Jesus is to you. 

In addition to having received a new spiritual eternal life, Jesus has equipped you that you also have been saved from the power of sin over your life!  Pray for the Holy Spirit to come to you and comfort and guide you through this life on earth -blessed as it is in Heaven!

Have you known to show God how grateful you are for the love He has sent for you?  
This is a good time to pray!

Have you known to tell God that you believe in Jesus and the love He has for you?  
This is a good time to pray!

Romans 10
The Word Brings Salvation
13for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED." 14How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? 15How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, "HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!"

The Train Whistle was written for you!

The Lord has given a grand opportunity to you and me. 

Read the Bible with God and pray for understanding.

I invite you to read The Train Whistle and pray about sharing it with someone who needs to believe in God's Love that is for them and all who will believe in the power of love in His Son.

God was with me through the writing of The Train Whistle, but I really believe:   What then am I, but a servant through whom this book was written. 

The Lord nudged me to plant this book by my faith, as a seed of love and hope for the world to believe in God's Love that is for the unbeliever and the lost.   A love that is for the sinner and those without hope.  

The Train Whistle is an opportunity to share God's Love that is for the world in a way that God is the one who will reveal His own Testimony about His Son to all who will take a moment to read it with God.  

I have planted the seed that God has provided.  Will you water the plant that God is causing to grow?  So neither one who plants or waters is anything, but God who causes the growth.  

5What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, even as the Lord gave opportunity to each one. 6I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth.7So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth.…1 Corinthians 3:5-7

I hope this book is a blessing to you!

Love in Christ,
