This was sent to me in an email thought i would pass it along.

“But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. 
‘And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled’. But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts...” 
1 Peter 3:14-15
 Living righteously virtually guarantees that not everyone will like you or agree with you, 
and some will even come against you. Walking with Christ is not for the faint of heart. 
The righteousness Peter refers to goes beyond an intellectual agreement with the truth about Jesus. 
It is a deep commitment to follow Christ—a complete re-orientation of life that reflects Him. 
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden” 
(Matthew 5:14). As light dispels darkness, godliness is as natural a testimony as the sun at noonday. 
Your light cannot and will not go unnoticed. 

Peter freely acknowledges that opposition from the ungodly may generate fear, 
but by paraphrasing the words of the prophet Isaiah,he gives us the solution. 
“The LORD of hosts, Him you shall hallow; 
let Him be your fear and let Him be your dread. He will be as a sanctuary...” 
(Isaiah 8:13-14). 
If you hold in your heart a deep reverential awe of the LORD of hosts, 
the Holy One of Israel, it will put to flight the fear of man. 
Sanctify the Lord God in your heart by enthroning Him and His will over and above all human authority. 
Live to please Him alone. Give God the glory due to His name for His power, goodness, and faithfulness, 
and you will experience an inner peace that no person or circumstance can take away. 
And He will be to you a steadfast sanctuary and refuge. 

 Awaiting His Return, 

Mark 4:40-41 
And Jesus said to them. 
"Why are you afraid?      Do you still have no faith?" 
They became very much afraid and said to one another 
"Who then is this , that even the wind and the sea obey Him?" 

Are you afraid of Jesus? or do you have faith in Jesus? 
you should fear the Lord and what He can do, for He is the creator of all things (even you) and has the authority to do as He wills with all things, (even you). 
Or are you afraid because you do not have faith in Jesus, the Christ, because of His power and authority over all things? 
It is time to chose what side you are going to live on the side of faith in Christ or the side of the evil one and the world. 
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. and chose to place our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, even un to death. 
Think about it what side are you going to end up on.
To be saved is a simple thing, 
but yet can be the hardest thing one would ever do, 
for it is the simple things that can trip you up. 

Man try’s to make thing complicated so that others thank highly of them when they teach or explain thing, 
To be saved is simple; admit the fact that you are a sinner. Confess it. Turn from it. Ask the Lord Jesus to forgive you. Put your total faith in Him, and obey His words. 

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved.
The Jesus who was born of a virgin, 
The Jesus who was crucified on a cross, 
And the same Jesus who came back to life three days later.
The Jesus who fulfilled all the prophesies of His coming, death and reresection.
The Jesus who is the one true King, the Lamb of Father God who was sacrificed for you so that you might live.
The Jesus who stands at the door of your heart knocking and weighting for you to ask Him in.

Yes it is the simple things that man has a hardest time with.
Ask Him in, repent of your sins, chose to place ALL your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and obey His teachings the words of God, the Holy Bible.

Yea you read this but now take the time to do something about it before you run out of time,
for once the trumpet sounds and the return of the Lord comes,
for once He returns it will be to late.
What do you have to loos by repenting and turning from sin and asking the Lord Jesus in to your life?
Answer an eternity in hell.
What do you have to gain? An eternity in paradise with your creator.
Yea pretty simple;
Turn or burn, Fly or fry. The choice is yours and yours alone.
There will be many in hell who will finely call on the name of the Lord to save them,
but it will be to late.
Think about it.
At 60, he sat on the bench alone, knowing he had wasted his life on the things of this world.
But after placing his faith, trust and hope in the Christ the Lord, peace filled him, and he knew he would never be alone aging. 
Now it was time to start living.
When will you chose to fallow Christ and live?
