Fairchild Oak


Fairchild Oak

Last week dear friends introduced me to an amazing creation of our Heavenly Father … the 2,000+ year old, 30 foot in circumference “Fairchild Oak” located in Bulow Creek State Park near Ormond Beach, Florida. As I stood in awe at the base of this magnificent creation, I realized that it was already in existence when “… God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son (Jesus), that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16, ESV)

There are constant reminders all around us everyday that we are a sinful people in need of a Savior! Thank you Lord for our visit to the Fairchild Oak. I am thankful that during that visit I was deeply reminded of how much You love me and because of what Jesus did for me some 2,000 years ago, I will live with Him in Heaven for an eternity!!!

How about you?  Do you have the assurance that you will spend your eternity in Heaven because of what Jesus has done for you?  If not, then follow this link for information about how to Become a Christian and be assured that you will have eternal life.
