Old Dog - New Trick

Is it possible to teach an old dog a new trick? Now, I'm not that terribly old, (50ish), but I'd say I'm definately creaping up on the old dog category. I'm certainly set in my ways at times and definately like my routine. So, I ask God this question one day. Is it possible to teach an old christain and new path?
His answer...yes. It's never too late.
Today, I truly beliieve that these are the days of Elijah. Jesus Christ has promised he will return. No one knows the day or the hour except for God, but I truly believe the time is close.
And because of that, we all need to learn to be lights leading others to the one true God.
This is Passion week. This week we celebrate not the death, but the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He is alive. He defeated death, hell, and the grave. Some day soon he's coming back. Are you ready? If not, it's a simple as ABC:
To know God and be ready for heaven,follow these steps:

A. Admit you are a sinner.

"There is no one righteous, not even one ... for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."

Romans 3:10,23. (See Romans 5:8; 6:23.)

Ask God's forgiveness.

"Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."

Romans 10:13

B. Believe in Jesus

(put your trust in Him) as your only hope of salvation.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 (See John 14:6.)

Become a child of God by receiving Christ.

"To all who receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God." John 1:12 (See Revelation 3:20.)

C. Confess that Jesus is your Lord.

"If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9 (See verse 10.)

If you said this prayer, you are saved. Congrats. You've just made the most important decision of your life. But it doesn't end there. Now, go, spread the word. Make deciples. Be the light!

All the best...
