Why I Bought Your Coffee
I hoped you would be curious
Because of that, I buy cups of coffee to share my journey with others. Would you take three minutes to read my story?
Someone once gave me an unexpected gift.
HERE'S WHAT Happened
Sure I wasn’t perfect, but who is. Right?
Growing up I wasn’t a
“do you think you are a good person?”
Well one day someone asked me,
It took me by surprise because... Of course I was
but that question began my journey.
That journey led to an unexpected gift. I want you to take that journey with me. Enjoy the GIFT.
(most people say YES! but...)
Would you consider yourself to be a good person?
How would you answer...
COMPARED TO WHAT?
the dictionary defines good as
Judge for yourself. Are you “morally perfect”? Have you ever...
Well, so have I. This takes us out of the “morally perfect” category and confirms what God communicated through Paul. We are NOT "good!”
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
Our sins separate us from god, and keeps us from spending eternity with him in heaven.
WOULD BE HELL.
For the wages of sin is death;
That’s the bad news.
An eternity without God
okay, so here’s the
Wow! The Creator offered me, and He is offering you, the gift of forgiveness... FREE!
GOD MADE A WAY TO SAVE US FROM THE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR IMPERFECTIONS.
...but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
He fulfilled God's perfect law that we could not fulfill. then...
See, Jesus lived a
He broke the curse of sin, and paved a way for all of the world to be saved and spend eternity with Him!
Jesus defeated the grave
2 Corinthians 5:21
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
Jesus LAID DOWN HIS LIFE
to pay the penalty for sin on our behalf with His Death on the Cross. Three days after his death...
All I had to do was receive this gift of salvation and eternal life.
That’s when I realized that while I wasn’t “good,”
Christ was offering me
For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God; Not of works, lest any man should boast.
HERE’S HOW YOU RECEIVE
Call upon the Lord Jesus. Repent of trusting anything but Christ alone for salvation and you can be saved from hell and be assured of a home in heaven forever.
That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Believe that Jesus Christ died, was buried and rose triumphantly over death paying the punishment for your sin on the cross.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Admit that you are a sinner who has come short of the glory of God, and because of your sin, you deserve to be punished.
The Bible is the only book that offers you a loving
relationship with the Creator of the universe.
He’s THE God Who Loves you
enough to become part of His creation and die for you. No other religion has a Resurrected Savior.
While you are enjoying your Coffee, Just remember:
Christ Offers Forgiveness For Everyone Everywhere
Jesus made a way to save you despite your imperfections.
Christ Offers Forgiveness For Everyone Everywhere
My hope is that you will also accept the gift–the Greatest Gift of all–God’s Son.
Thank you for accepting this unexpected “perk”.
You know... You could ask Him to be your Savior TODAY!
You May not Have Tomorrow
So, my next question is,
When are you going to repent and trust in Jesus?
GOD WANTS TO HEAR FROM YOU
NOT SURE WHAT TO SAY?
Let Him know that you are sorry for the wrongs you have done.
Let Him know that you want His forgiveness and thank Him for sending Jesus to shed his blood that covers our sin.
Let Him know that you are trusting in the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ and nothing else, not even your own “good works,” for your salvation.
Ask Him to lead you from this day forward.
If you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart...
Trusting Christ is more than just “saying a few words”,
it is a matter of the heart.
That’s why it is called repentance because it is changing the way you think and believe.
“Dear God, I admit that I have broken your laws and am worthy of your judgment. I humbly repent and ask for your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus is God, that He died in my place on the cross, and that He rose again, conquering both death and hell. I now accept Him as my substitute and my Savior. Thank you for making me your child and reserving a place for me in Heaven. Now, help me to live for you. Amen.”
A Prayer From The Heart:
The Salvation Poem:
You could make one of these prayers your own personal conversation with God today.
“Jesus, You died upon a cross And rose again to save the lost Forgive me now of all my sin Come be my Savior, Lord, and Friend Change my life and make it new And help me, Lord, to live for You”
