       1. NO MATTER WHAT COUNTRY YOU'RE FROM, what religion you believe in or what colour your skin is, your heart is the same as other people's hearts all around the World!--There is no difference! Our desire and need for love and peace and happiness is made by God, and the same in everyone the World over!
       2. WHOEVER WE ARE AND WHEREVER WE ARE FROM, the simple answer to all of our problems is the same as it has always been for every age and every generation: LOVE!--True love, real love, God's Love!
       3. WHAT EVERYBODY NEEDS IS LOVE! This is God's answer to all the problems of today as well as to all the problems of the past!--An answer which has always been so simple and childlike that many people find it hard to believe! But this is still God's solution, even in such a confused and complicated World as we live in today!
       4. IT'S JUST THAT SIMPLE: If we love God, if we have His Love in our hearts, we will love and care for each other. We will then follow His rules of life, liberty and happiness, and all will be well and happy as we follow Him!
       5. FOR IT IS MAN'S REJECTION OF GOD'S LOVE AND HIS LOVING LAWS THAT CAUSES MOST OF THE EVILS AND TROUBLES IN THE WORLD TODAY! If people would love God and each other, they would not be mean and selfish! The rich wouldn't rob the poor, those with plenty wouldn't let their neighbours suffer hunger, disease or overwork without helping them, and they certainly wouldn't fight cruel wars in which they kill and wound each other!
       6. THIS IS WHY JESUS SAID THAT THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT IS TO LOVE!--To first of all love God, and then to love your neighbour as yourself! In fact, He said that these two simple laws fulfil all the laws of God! (Matthew 22:37-39) In other words, Love fulfils all the Law!--God's only Law is Love!
       7. OF COURSE, A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY, "OH, I DON'T BELIEVE IN GOD!" But if you were to ask them if they believe in love, they'd probably reply, "Of course I believe in love!" Well, if they can believe in love, then they can believe in God!--Because the Bible says, "God is Love!" (1John 4:8) So real love, God's Love, is all the religion you need, because God is Love, and Love is God!
       8. GOD IS NOT ONLY LOVE, BUT JESUS ALSO SAID THAT "GOD IS A SPIRIT!" (John 4:24)--He is the Great Spirit of Love that created you and me and this beautiful World and the entire Universe! He is so big and so great that He is far beyond our human understanding! But God loved us so much that He wanted us to somehow know and love Him, so to show us His Love and to help us to understand Himself, He sent His Own Son to Earth in the form of a man, Jesus Christ.
       9. JESUS WAS LIKE A PICTURE OF GOD, to show us what God Himself is like.--And that picture is a picture of Love, because all Jesus did was talk about love and show love and live love. Then finally, in love, He gave His life for you and me, so that we could have God's Love, forgiveness and free Gift of Eternal Life if we would just receive Him into our hearts.
       10. SO IF YOU FEEL THAT YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH LOVE, MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE YOU HAVEN'T YET FOUND GOD'S LOVE BY RECEIVING HIS SON JESUS!--There is a hollowness, an empty spot that He has placed in each of our hearts that only He can fill, and that nothing else will ever truly satisfy. So if you'd like Him to fill that spot in your life, all you have to do is open your heart to Him.
       11. TO RECEIVE GOD'S LOVE IS SO SIMPLE that Jesus said you must become as a little child to enter His spiritual Kingdom of love and joy! He said, "Unless you humble yourself and become as a little child, you shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven!" (Matthew 18:3)
       12. ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS CONFESS THAT YOU'RE NOT PERFECT, that you have made mistakes and that you need God's forgiveness. The Bible says, "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23) In other words, we've all done wrong, so we all need to be forgiven, because without forgiveness of sin, we'd be separated from God's perfect Love.
       13. BUT YOU CANNOT SAVE YOURSELF! The Bible tells us, "by grace (God's Love and mercy) we are saved through faith, and not of ourselves or our own good deeds. It is the free Gift of God!" (Ephesians 2:8,9) No matter what good things you do or how religious you try to be, it's impossible to save yourself!--It's a Gift of God! And the Gift God gave is JESUS!
       14. "FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD (you and me), that He gave His Own Son (Jesus), that whoever believes in Him should never die (be separated from God's Love), but have Everlasting Life." (John 3:16) God loved you so much that He gave Jesus to die in your place, to take the punishment that you deserve for your sins.--And all you have to do is believe and receive Him!
       15. JESUS PROMISED THAT IF YOU OPEN UP YOUR HEART, if you ask Him to come in, He will come in. He says, "Behold, I stand at the door (of your heart), and knock: If any man hear My voice, & open the door, I will come in to him." (Rev.3:20)
       16. YOU CAN RECEIVE JESUS RIGHT NOW by praying this simple prayer: "Dear Jesus, please forgive me for all my sins. I believe You are the Son of God and that You died for me, and I now invite You into my heart. Jesus, please come in and help me to love others and tell them about You so they may find You too. In Jesus' name I ask, Amen."
       17. IF YOU PRAYED AND MEANT THIS PRAYER, Jesus is now in your heart! And you have Love that you will never lose, that will never let you go, for you are His child forever!--"For he that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life!" (John 3:36)
       WE HOPE THESE WORDS OF LOVE HAVE HELPED YOU TO FIND THE LOVE YOU NEED TO MAKE YOU HAPPY!--And that others will find happiness through your love too! God bless you & make you a blessing with His Love!--If you'd like to find out more about how His Love can change hearts, read the beautiful story of Jesus in the Gospels of the Bible, and write us today for more information and beautiful colour Posters at the address below! We love you!
