LIFE WILL BEAT YOU UP
Nothing can be done about the harshness of life. Whether you are wealthy or live in poverty, there are times when all you feel is suffering. This suffering can be either outward or inward. Makes no difference to the sufferer. It’s all painful.
Suffering brings with it the desire for comfort. Usually human comfort. All a sufferer wants to do is have someone or something make the pain or anguish go away!
Trailhead is a place of new beginnings. The beginning of your journey may be here at Trailhead, but you must first realize that no one here can give you lasting comfort. It will never come from people or accumulating more money. Drugs, alchohol, and sex are just fleeting shadows of comfort that fade away in moments.
Your true comfort is beyond any physical aspect that Trailhead possesses. All we can do is point you in the direction that your spirit is yearning to go, because the only lasting comfort and peace comes from Jesus alone.
Even the name of Jesus stirs mixed emotions whenever it is spoken, whispered, written, or read. This is because your spirit knows that He has the only thing that can save you from endless emptiness.
Fill your heart with the gift of Jesus and no matter what this world takes from you, your spirit and your heart will have a peace beyond all understanding. Not only will you acquire eternal life in heaven, but you will also have comfort and peace, no matter what your body and emotions are going through!
IT’S ALMOST TOO SIMPLE
All you have to do is believe! That is it! The inspired Word of God says that if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. The comfort that your soul seeks is just a belief and a word away.
Seems almost too simple, but it is true! Jesus took care of EVERY single detail. All you have to do is choose to accept the gift that He offers. Remember that a gift is something that you cannot pay for, you just accept or reject. Anything other than accepting is rejecting.
Here’s how it works. If you have not accepted Jesus as your Savior, then you owe a huge debt. Whether you are an adulterer, a murderer, or you just thought one impure thought, the bible says the the wages (the payment), for that sin is death (eternal separation from God, joy, relationship, and peace). Basically punishment for all eternity. That is your debt.
The good part is that the God of the universe sent his only Son, Jesus to the earth to pay that debt for you! Hanging on the cross, Jesus didn’t just taste a human death. He paid eternal punishment for each and every one of us, all at once!
Jesus took care of every detail that day. All you have to do is accept it. Believe that what you just read is the truth. You have sinned and deserve death. Jesus is the Son of God and paid the eternal price for that sin. Say that out loud, even in the privacy of your bedroom, office, or any other place, and you are saved! That it!
MUCH MUCH MORE
Now eternity is taken care of, but you can gain so much more fulfillment and joy in your life by pursuing an ongoing relationship with Jesus. He is real. He is here right now, and you can live a life full of peace and joy, even here on earth by living in Him.
That is where Trailhead comes in. We cannot save you. Only Jesus can, but we can teach you to hear and follow Jesus on this earth. Now is the time to begin your journey, and Trailhead is a great place to start.
