Good Reads for a Song
When I was quite young, my parents bought first my brother then me a subscription to World magazine, which was the children's version of National Geographic. I really enjoyed it. One issue I remember distinctly--it was an article (with lots of pictures, of course) of the crown jewels of England and a few other countries. I loved that issue! I thought those sparkles were just gorgeous and wore that issue out. Right then and there my interest began in sparkles of every kind truly began. It's not that I want them all, but it is just pleasant to look at them and enjoy their beauty and design. The Crown Jewels book my Mom and I both went for at the same time at a yard sale--it was 50 cents. I let her have it knowing I could read it whenever I wished (thanks, Mom). The other book I bought at an antique mall intending it for a gift for someone but just couldn't give it up. They are full of information and gorgeous, inspiring pictures.
The Bible says one must 1) admit they are a sinner (Romans 3:23); 2) realize there is a payment for sin (Romans 6:23); 3) believe that the payment was made by Jesus with His death on the cross, burial, and resurrection (Romans 5:8); 4) be willing to repent of your sins and turn to God (Acts 17:30); and 5) in prayer, humbly ask the Lord Jesus Christ to by your Lord and Saviour (Romans 10: 9, 13). It is that simple!
