The "Weed Control" We all Need
A farmer in Western Oregon, by the name of Willard Smucker, developed a valuable tool to control weeds in his grass seed fields. Wiping weeds and broadcast spraying have helped him and many other farmers successfully clean up weeds in fields. When these weeds are gone it allows the crops to produce a high yield.
He realized, however, that a major "weed control" problem existed that his weed wiper could not solve. The "weeds" were on a personal level. Like everyone, Willard knew he had made mistakes, and committed sins that would ultimately separate him from the God that created him. Eventually, if he didn't take care of the "weeds" they would overtake his life, and when he came to the end of his life, he would have nothing to show for it.
Fortunately, Willard made the most important "weed control" choice of his life by taking action before it was too late. He asked Jesus (the Son of his Creator) to clean up the field of his heart, to forgive him of those sins, and to help him produce a high yielding life. As Willard's son I am thankful that he took action early because in 1984, at age 43, his life on earth ended. He is now reaping the harvest of that choice for eternity in heaven.
Our vision, above all else, at Smucker Manufacturing is that everyone would know Jesus to be Lord and Savior of their lives. He is a good Father. We recognize that in our short time on earth, we will serve something in our life whether it's money, our job, or people. So, why not serve a loving God who has been pursuing you since the beginning of creation. Please contact us if you want to know more about God's passionate pursuit of you and the sacrifice he made because he deemed you worth the risk.
Real Joy, Peace and Freedom
If you are pursuing real Joy, Peace and Freedom there is an answer. In all of our lives there will always be smarter, wealthier, better looking and more successful people than us. However we believe that the people with the most joy peace and freedom are those that come to the realization that they are loved unconditionally. They aren't the ones that have found "religion", but the ones that have a relationship with the one that created them and loves them unconditionally. They are learning to love others in the same way as Jesus loves them. Every other religion in history is based upon what you do, and how "good" of a life you live. God recognized that none of us are able to live a perfect life...so being a Christian is simply believing by faith and it is all about what Jesus did for us!
How Do I Respond to Him first loving me?
The Bible says that:
1.) If you believe that Jesus is God's Son
2.) Believe that he was raised from the dead
3.) If you admit your sin
4.) If you accept his gift of perfect relationship with him through grace
You Will Be Saved from the penalty of sin and have a high yield life. Pray this prayer, or one in your own words:
"Jesus, I believe that you are the Son of God, that you died to pay my penalty and that you arose from the dead. I admit that I have sinned, and need you to clean up the weeds in my life. I want to accept you as my Savior and my friend. I choose a lifelong relationship with you as the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank you for the gift of life that you given."
Congratulations, now that you have received the gift of Salvation your life will never be the same. I must tell you though that this doesn't mean you won't have any more stress or that life will be easy. In fact, your new, "walk with God" will most likely be harder.. I highly recommend you find a Bible believing church full of people, like you, who want to grow closer to God. Make no mistake though... the rewards of life with God will far outmatch any other accomplishment in your life... I guarantee it... better yet God guarantees it!
If you just now (or recently) received the gift of salvation we would like to send you a FREE "YES" packet that will help you in your new walk with God. Simply email us your mailing address and request a "YES" pack.
Below you will find four awesome and inspiring videos that I highly recommend you watch and share with others!
Here is what the Bible says in Galations 6:
"What a person plants, he will harvest. The person who plants selfishness, ignoring the needs of others—ignoring God!—harvests a crop of weeds. All he’ll have to show for his life is weeds! But the one who plants in response to God, letting God’s Spirit do the growth work in him, harvests a crop of real life, eternal life.
9-10 So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith." Gal. 6:8-10
