It's so Simple
A few nights ago, Jason took me to see Batman Begins at the IMAX. Don’t worry – I am not too fond of people telling me about movies before I have seen them, so I won’t ruin anything. However, if you don’t want to know anything about the movie, stop reading now and check this blog out after you have seen it. At the very beginning of the movie, someone tells a young Bruce Wayne (pre-Batman) that if he travels to this remote, freezing cold, mountainous area, finds and picks a very specific blue flower in the midst of the rocks and snow and carries this fragile flower to the top of the mountain, he will find what he has been searching for. Well, against all odds, he does it. And guess what happens when he gets to the top – he gets his butt kicked! Someone should have told Bruce Wayne about Jesus.

Aren’t we so blessed that receiving salvation is so simple? God humbled Himself in the form of a man and came to this earth. He lived a sinless life and died on the cross for all of mankind’s sins (that’s a lot of sins!). All we have to do is believe it and accept Him as our personal savior. We go from being condemned to death to being forgiven and having eternal life. In addition to receiving the wonderful gift of everlasting life, we get to have a personal relationship with the creator of the universe! How awesome is that! Imagine the most wise, caring, generous, patient, faithful, forgiving, loving person in the whole entire world wanting to be your best friend no matter what you do or say to Him (try to be nice - he did save your life J). Praise the Lord for His grace and mercy, then go out and tell someone how easy it is to “find what they have been searching for” and receive the gift of eternal life!
