To the editor:
How do we accomplish salvation? First of all, we thank the Holy Trinity of God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then we listen to God, then we pray, then we listen. This appears to be simple enough for a simple human being but God created each of us as special according to His design — and with a free will.
Then Adam, the first human, sinned against his Creator and by so doing caused God, the Father, to give His only Begotten Son, Jesus. Jesus is our Savior. He suffered and died on the cross for us.
God has not been satisfied with our efforts. We need to do more to prove our goodness. Only then will we truly know God’s love for us. There will be signs of God’s love readily displayed like peace in this world the way it was meant to be.
However, if God does not have reason to tell us that we are saved, we have failed our most important venture in life. We need to do more than the basic requirements and squeeze into Heaven. We need to make sure by surrendering to God.
We need to realize the beauty and greatness of our systems of body and soul. To surrender to our Creator should be the natural thing to do. If and when we do decide to surrender to God, we say: “I can’t make it by myself. I need your help. Please save me. Hosanna.”
Eternity is forever. Somehow we need to be a friend of God if we are to live with the peace and love of Heaven.
