Many who call complaining about this say they’ve tried resetting their password numerous times. This, however, only makes matters worse, causing our system to "lock" them out entirely. As a result, people will voice their frustration in a variety of ways, one being, "I cannot get in to save me."
The parameters for setting passwords in our system changed recently. Therefore, the failure to meet these guidelines makes accessing their account via our website impossible. We have the ability to reset passwords for these callers. Still, they must key in exactly what we tell them, or it will not work.
As with any website, knowing your username isn’t enough. A password uniquely tailored to the person desiring to log in is essential to gaining access.
Before age and declining health ended his work as an itinerant evangelist, Billy Graham preached the Gospel, in person, to 83 million people worldwide.
Graham had the routine of looking out over the crowd before stepping up to preach, with the purpose of singling out one person to try and reach with the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. He would preach as though speaking to convince that one individual.
The Bible works the same way. People who read it feel as though it speaks directly to them.
 Indeed. The Bible speaks to us individually as we read it. Why? Because it is the "living word" of God, the One who made us to be His very own, and whose foremost desire is for everyone to experience the full joy of His salvation and goodness.
If "Jesus" is the username, what then is the password allowing access to God and His realm of infinite possibilities? What, specifically, does He require to give His children complete access to the answers they seek?
Jesus said, "If you do not forgive others, you will not be forgiven." Is "forgiveness" the key?
Hebrews 11:16 says, "Without faith it is impossible to please God." Is "faith" the answer?
Proverbs 3:5-6 exhorts, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding…." Is "trust" the issue?
Each person has a unique password, dependent upon his or her current need or standing with God. By acting on this key word after calling on God for assistance, life can open up as any webpage to the person who's signed in successfully.
