  • Ventura Highway


    By David Cook

    “Ventura Highway” by the folk-rock band America is a musical blast from the past and a reminder for me, of California dreamin’ and West Coast adventures. The band America had a chilled out vibe, they were huge when I was in high school and one of my fav bands for sure. I remember the first time this Midwest boy from KC, Missouri traveled across Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada and on into California through the barren and arid Mojave Desert.

     The classic folk-rock band America and their self-titled debut album America 
    with the hit song; “A Horse with No Name”. Their first album was released in 1971.

    I was traveling with friends from a high school youth group on our way to a Student Venture Conference, where we were meeting up with other students from around the USA to learn more about how to have a personal relationship with the Maker of heaven and earth. [1] We traversed down U.S. Interstate-15 from Barstow down into the San Bernardino Valley, glowing in the night.

  • Eternal Life

     By David Cook

    “For God so loved the world,

    that He gave His only begotten Son,

    that whoever believes in Him shall not perish,

    but have eternal life."

    John 3:16 NASB

    Living forever with God.  Being transformed from a mortal to an immortal, from a perishable body to an imperishable body.  It's had to fathom all that God has prepared for those who love Him.  It's hard to comprehend the depth of the love of God.  God loved us so much that He gave His only begotten Son to die on the cross for our sins.  Three days after His sacrifical death Jesus came back to life!  He lived on earth for forty days before He ascended to heaven.  The Lord Jesus is now seated at the right hand of His Father God interceding on behalf of those who call upon Him in faith.  Whoever believes in Jesus Christ will have eternal life.

    We read in the gospel of John where Jesus explained how to be born again;

    “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.  John 3:16-17 NASB

    John, a disciple close to Jesus wrote; "This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent."  John 17:3 NASB

    Would you like to begin a relationship with the living God?  Would you like to know the God who created earth and the heavens above?  Today is the day.  Now is a good time, to step into the light of God.  To put your faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God and find new life.  To find eternal life!

    Today if you hear His voice calling you to turn from your sin to find God's love and forgiveness through faith in His Son, then ask and you will recieve.  God gave us this testimony and promise about eternal life in His Son Jesus;

    And the testimony is this,
    that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.

    He who has the Son has the life;
    he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.

    1 John 5:11-12 NASB
