Jhe most famous passage in the Bible is:For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16 KJV) This passage is filled with Good News and is a free gift to all who “believe in him” (Jesus), recognize and repent of sin, and turn from the old life to follow him. Sound simple? Yes, it sounds simple, and in fact it is simple.
The not-so-simple part is the “turning away from the old life” thing. Today, letting go of a past life filled with emotionally, mentally and physically satisfying things is not only difficult but almost downright impossible.
