  • Job 8:21He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy!  
     How do you feel right now?  Are you happy or are you feeling sad?  What has life been like for you, do you wish you could be happier? Bless your heart!  I know sometimes you hurt and cry but I have an answer for you.  You can find happiness in spite of your problems.


     Two thousand years ago a baby was born in a lowly manger in Bethlehem of Judea. He was not born in a castle like a rich king yet He was the richest person that ever lived.  He was not born with rich possessions, yet He possessed the greatest love the world has ever known.  Jesus Christ, the son of God came to give you the richest gift of all His "Salvation!"
  • Luke 2:1,4-7 And it came to pass in those days, there went out a decree from Caesar Augusius, that all the world should be taxed. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem;  (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
     Being the Son of God, Jesus was born "without sin!" Surely the greatest love we have ever known came into our lives that fateful day.  Jesus did not seek worldly riches but He came to "bring" you the richest gift of all, Salvation!  You see you do not have to be rich to have great value and worth.  Richness is a state of spiritual being, NOT how many possessions that you may own.  For all the earth's wealth will NOT get you into Heaven, Repenting for your sins and asking Jesus Christ to come into your heart, will!


     From the beginning God created the world and a beautiful Garden He called Eden.  He created the animals and placed two people named Adam and Eve to care for it.  God said, "Eat whatever you like in the Garden but not of the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for if you eat of it you will surly die." Soon Satan the devil came and deceived them into disobeying God when they ate from the forbidden fruit.  His law was broken; sin had come into the world!  God had to cast Adam and Eve out of the Garden to punish them for their sins.  So now all people would 
suffer from sin unless they could be saved.  So, God sent His very own son Jesus Christ to pay the price for our sins because He loves us! 
  • Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
     Satan the devil tempts us to sin and disobey our Father God.  The devil makes us focus on our problems rather than God's positive answers for our lives. Jesus Christ came to mend our hurting hearts.  He came for you and me!   He brought a way to save us from our sins.  He brought the love and hope of Heaven through His "Free 
Gift" Salvation!


     During His earthly ministry Jesus strived to reach out to everyone who had need.  People were drawn to hear Him speak words of love and Biblical truths.
  • Matt. 14:14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick. 
  • Matt. 11:5 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. 
  • Matt. 9:35 And Jesus went about all of the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
     Religious leaders became jealous of Jesus because of their sins.  They did not want to give up power or control over the people and were hypocritical in their actions.  They were so full of sinful jealousy that they hated the love and hope people found in Jesus Christ.   He came to heal their sins and broken hearts too!  So the Religious leaders captured Jesus and turned Him over to a Roman governor named Pontius Pilot.


     Soldiers laughed as they brutally beat Jesus with whips who's tips were metal.  They placed a sharp crown of thorns upon His poor head to humiliate Him.  Jesus was so badly bruised and swollen from the beatings that people could no longer recognize Him.   He was led through the city streets in total humiliation and disgrace to be crucified.  Soldiers nailed His hands and feet to a wooden cross while people mochingly jeered at Him to save Himself.  Soon the sky turned dark when death finally came and winds blew. 
  • Romans 5:8 But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
     The rains came and a dark sadness spread across the land. Sadly Jesus' mother watched with tears of great sorrow, as they took Her son's lifeless body down from the Cross to be sealed Him in a cold, dark tomb.  Sin had been brought into the world by the devil in the Garden of Eden and a price had to be paid to redeem us from our sins. Jesus paid the price.  Not one of us is worthy of such a thing.  The Savior of the world had paid the terrible price for "our" sins so that we might be saved.

     Being the Son of God, Jesus Christ could have stopped this terrible ordeal by calling down a whole legion of Angels for protection, but He did not, why?  Jesus knew our sins had to be paid and He paid the price so we might be saved. 

  • Isaiah 53:4-6 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.  But he was wounded for our transgressions.
     Three days later a miracle happened, Jesus arose "ALIVE" from the grave.  Praise the Lord! He conquered death!  He paid the price for our sins and now sits with God in Heaven.  Soon He will come back again to take  believers to Heaven.  Jesus Christ came to save us because He loves us!
  • John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
     How can you find happiness and peace of spirit when you hurt? The answer is simple, Jesus Christ came to "Heal the Broken hearted."  He came to heal your hurts and to give you victory over sin.


     In "HEAVEN" believers will find LOVE, JOY, PEACE, and more HAPPINESS than they could ever imagine.  Beautiful Angels are there and the loving light of God will shine brightly. Pure love and joy!  NO sin, NO sorrow, NO sadness, NO more sickness...Only complete happiness and real love for "all" eternity!  What more could you want?

    In "Hell" sinners will find pain, suffering, sorrow, sickness, agony, tears, hatred, unforgiveness, bad thoughts, depression, negative feelings and total blackness (NO light!) Demons will be there! Satan is going to be in Hell with all of his demons, and believe me they hate you!  Imagine looking into the eyes of pure 'evil and hate' for ALL eternity?  A VERY SCARY THOUGHT!  All those who do not repent of their sins and ask Jesus to save them, will be in Hell forever!  Pain and suffering for all eternity!  Think about it, the choice is yours!  Where will you go when you die, Heaven or Hell?


      Acknowledge that you have sinned and admit that you need Jesus to save you! Every one of us has sinned and we need to admit it, we can not hide it or run away from that very serious hard fact; we have sin in our lives and need to repent.
  • Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
  • Matthew 15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.
     Repent of your sins!  We all have sinned, not one of us is innocent of sin.  Jesus came to heal our broken hearts by giving us a way to be forgiven for our sins.  He brought us Salvation!  God wants repentance for our sins.  He wants us to sincerely be sorry for them.  He does NOT want us to use fakery but in sincerity ask for forgiveness.  Anyone can apologize for something they did by saying words only, but a true repentant heart is broken, sorry and surrendered with humility.  True repentance allows the working of the Holy Spirit to change hearts and attitudes. 
Your attitude changes to one of humble love.  God will faithfully forgive you of your sins and bring healing to your broken heartedness.  When you repent and ask Jesus to come into your life you begin to find real happiness and joyful peace!


     Jesus did not come as a rich ruler to win power and man's applause but men's hearts with "His love."  He came to "heal YOUR broken heart."  Why, because He truly loves you!  He proved that He had the power over the grave and that we can have eternal life with Him in Heaven.  How loving our Lord is and how wonderful that He looks past our sins.  He loves us in spite of everything we could have ever done.  You CAN be happy! You CAN have victory over the sadness of life and you CAN have healing for your broken heart through the Salvation of Jesus Christ who dearly loves us, you CAN be saved and healed!

     Jesus Christ came for the poor in spirit and the brokenhearted.  Yes, He came for you and me!  No one knows how long they have to live but you CAN know for sure where your soul will go when you die.  Repent of your sins and ask Jesus Christ to be your savior today!


     Heavenly Father, I love you for sending your Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for my sins.  I never knew I could be loved like this and I am so sorry for the sins that I have done in my life.  I believe that your son Jesus loves me and that I am special to you.  I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins, my very own sins.

     Lord, I humbly ask Jesus to come into my heart, forgive me and wash away all of my sins.  I desire to have a close relationship with you Lord Jesus.  I want to know that I can live in Heaven with you when I die for all eternity.  Oh I love you Lord!  Thank you for what you have done in my life to save me from my sins. Heal all of my broken heartedness and give me the joy that can only be found in you.  I ask this in Jesus name who is my Savior, Amen.   Lord, I take great joy for now I know that I am saved, I know that I will be in Heaven, Praise the Lord!


     If you have said this prayer than God's angels are happy and rejoicing in Heaven for you are forgiven and saved.  Praise the Lord!  Jesus loves you so very, very much!  God bless your precious heart!  Praise God! We encourage you to attend a Christian Church and tell your friends about Jesus Christ.  God bless you for you can know that you WILL be in Heaven with the Lord!
