A.E.I.O.U. what does a vow mean to you?


This lesson is 2 pages long
     There is a real difference between how a secular man views life, and how Christians views life. Christians view life as a vow to God. Man views life as it is without God, Vows are nothing but meaningless words. And God says you can not really live life without God.
Vowel" a voice speech sound characterized by generalized friction of the air passing in a continuous stream through the pharynx and opened mouth, with relatively no narrowing or other obstruction of the speech organs."
VOW " a solemn promise or pledge; especially, one made to God, dedicating oneself to act, service, or way of life."
     These are very important words. Are not the words we say more then just a collection of letters. Are not the vows we make eternal! Lets look at our vows.
 
Man's VOW
Astands for "All". All for me.
Estands for "Eternity". Eternity can wait.
I stands for "I". I am all there is.
O stands for "OTHERS". Others are unimportant.
U stands for "YOU". You are the only God.
 
God's VOW
A stands for "ALL". All I have is yours (this is good News).
E stands for "ETERNITY". Eternity is yours for the asking.
I stands for "I". I have paid the price.
O stands for "OTHERS". All others are invited to come also.
Ustands for "YOU". You just need to accept Jesus.
 
Your VOW
A stands for "ALL". All of the things of this world are unimportant.
E stands for "ETERNITY". There is nothing more important than Eternity.
I stands for "I". I can't enter heaven alone. I must know Jesus.
O stands for "OTHERS". The love of God has to flow through you to others.
U stands for "YOU". You have to make a decision.
 
Romans 10:
8. But what does it say? The Word is near you, on your lips and in your heart; that is,
    the Word - the message- of faith, which we preach.
9. Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your
    heart believe (adhere to, trust in and rely on the truth) that God raised him from the dead,
    you will be saved.
10. For with the heart a person believes (adheres to, trusts in and relies on Christ) and so
      is justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God), and with the mouth he confesses -
      declares openly and speaks out freely his faith - and confirms (his) salvation.
 
     What does it mean to be saved? It means that in your heart you know, that you know, that you know, that Christ is alive and He wants to live in you. But that all starts with believing and confessing that Christ is real and inviting Him into your life. Please pray with me now. Confessing Christ with your mouth.
     Heavenly Father, I pray that you would forgive me of my sins and I forgive all those who have sinned against me. Father I open my heart and invite Jesus into my life, and turn my life over to Him in Love. Fill me with your Spirit, lead and guide me in the path that your would have me to take in Jesus name I pray amen.
     For those of you who have really prayed this prayer with your heart, Christ says you are a new creature, all of your old sins are wiped away, all things are new in Christ! Congratulations! Now you need to start praying that God will show you a Good church to go to, so be receptive to the leading of your heart, not your mind, and go to church.
And remember, Jesus loves you!
