Can You Change Your Mind?

Can You Change Your Mind?


What is your impression of Christianity…

Dull, boring rituals…wealthy institutions?

Can your experience stand some “transformity?”

The HOPE of Christians rests on Christ’s resurrection.


Peter’s world just fell apart in Gethsemane…

Like knocking on a door and hearing it bolted.

Does God even care when we face this agony?

Are we desperately alone and rejected?


Christ was forsaken once that you might never be.

He demonstrated His love for you on the cross.

Peter was restored…Jesus came to Him, you see,

And said, “Peace be with you”…blessing instead of loss.


God can lift your guilt and save from condemnation.

He can heal wounds, give you a new relationship.

Why run from Him?  He gives Heaven’s destination,

And offers you His peace and guidance for the trip. 


Come to Him…accept His gift…have faith to live now!


“……but these have been written that you may believe that Jesus

is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life

in His name.   John 20: 31  (NASB)
