OPPORTUNITY: An “up-and-coming” Leader can have all the credentials that time, money, experience, education, etc., can bring about…but if (s)he goes un-noticed and/or… un-tested…or, until or unless someone recognizes him/her as a leader by providing “just-the-right-opportunity” necessary… to propel him into “the race,”…then leadership roles, and subsequent SUCCESS will not be part their future.
While “these specific types of OPPORTUNITY” may escape you… there is “the one opportunity” that is ALWAYS available… just for the asking. Any of us…and, all of us, can seize a “relationship (opportunity) with the Lord God, Jesus Christ” at any-time, and any-where.
The “opportunity criteria” is very simple. You must believe that THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, God manifested in the flesh, WAS CRUCIFIED FOR OUR SINS AS OUR SUBSTITUTE. In order to be saved and get into heaven…we must:
- REPENT of our sins [have a change of mind to go in another direction]
- BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ–his death, his burial, and his resurrection from the dead.
- OBEY the word of God, the Bible.
- REPENT OF OUR OLD WAYS, BELIEVE IN JESUS, AND TRY TO OBEY HIS WORD. Then, as we strive to obey him, He helps us to obey Him.
…Many Blessings as you travel the road to Salvation…cjlb…6/18/16
