Chaplains Corner - April 2011

On the recent Christian Holy Day of Easter, Christians celebrated the resurrection of Jesus from the Dead and then appeared to his disciples. Christians understand that with the resurrection of Jesus, God accepted the Christ's sacrificial death as a substitute payment to enable God to forgive our sins that separated us from God.. .Now God can forgive our confessed sins, restore us to a right relationship with Him, and give us the gift of the Holy Spirit to guide and protect us until God calls us home or Christ returns. God's plan for our salvation is given and received solely by faith alone and is clearly revealed in the inspired Word of God in the Bible.

Sadly, many have pushed God to the side as irrelevant and are relying on their own strengths to cope with an evil people and world with a grade school understanding of God. Sadly, many have never come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ. Many have rejected their former faith in Jesus Christ and are living a miserable life without God to help them defeat the forces of evil that manifest themselves in many disguise.. Who can you trust to tell you the truth about God and life? My answer is that I trust my God to guide me with His absolute truths and the promise of eternal life with God in heaven.. God has proven to me that He is trustworthy and faithful by helping me in times of despair and danger. I joyfully proclaim that I trust God's revelation of Himself in the Bible. The God who was revealed by Jesus Christ in the Bible is worthy of your trust.

I urge you to renew your dormant Christian faith or come to faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord. Then with the assistance of the Holy Spirit, the Bible, and the Church, you will be living a purposeful life that is guided by trusting God and accepting the promise of an eternal life in a perfect heaven. Try it and you won't be disappointed.

Chaplain (LTC) John Szilvasy
