HALLELUJAH! It is resurrection Sunday! Three days passed by after Jesus was willingly hung on a cross spilling His precious innocent blood to pay the penalty for the sins of man and providing forgiveness for those who accept what God alone could and did do for us. He paid a debt He did not owe. I owed a debt I could not pay. I needed someone to wash my sin away. My life was in rebellion to the God Who created me and loves me. I had lived the first 30 years of my life in that rebellion totally rejecting Him. I went so far in my hardheartedness that I totally denied His existence. I was an atheist … unapproachable. No one could talk to me about anything spiritual. I was like this one kid in this Chick tract entitled One Way.
BTW, out of all of the Chick tracts this is one of my very favorites. It is almost all pictures and illustrates the truth of what has happened to mankind as far as sin entering the world and its consequences.
I have shared my personal testimony previously so I won’t rewrite it again here.
Anyway, if you are like I was … if you get upset when someone tries to share anything spiritual with you I understand … been there, done that … as they say. Just hang in there. If God can manage to get thru to you I assure you will have no regrets. He wants to set you free and help you to find Truth which will set you free. We are either In Adam (lost) or In Christ (saved). Here is the difference:
Accepting and receiving Jesus Christ wiil totally transform us from what we have made of ourselves into what God wants us to become and with His help we can become. Time is short. We are living in the very Last Days and the return of Jesus in imminent.
For more than 2000 years He has offered us His grace with the opportunity for our salvation. But that will all soon change. Procrastination is a very dangerous game to play! First of all none of have the assurance of our next breath and heartbeat. Dying apart from Christ and what He alone can provide … the forgiveness of our sins …means that our eternal fate is sealed. Heaven or hell are real and they are our only two choices. And we have already made our choice. God knows our hearts. Our fate is already sealed. That being said, today you have the opportunity to choose Him and change your fate.
TODAY, if you hear His voice, do not harden your heart. You may never have another opportunity.
What will you do with this great sacrifice? Right now you have the opportunity to choose life … choose Jesus.
It is not complicated but it is quite difficult. It is hard because it involves dealing with our pride, humbling ourselves and repenting. We must come to God on His terms.
God has a free gift awaiting you.
Jesus loves you. He loves you so much that He stretched out His arms to hang on a tree just to prove His great love. Yes, He did this for you while you were still rebelling against Him. There is no greater demonstration of love to be found anywhere. We should …
If we live our lives like this we will most likely will be part of the next event known as the rapture of the church when Jesus comes back to get those He has redeemed. This will happen just before God begins His judgement upon the earth and those who will be here … left behind rejecting Him.
Don’t be left behind. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Jesus is returning soon! He came the first time to provide salvation. He is coming the next time to pour out His wrath and anger on those who reject that salvation.
JESUS PAID IT ALL
ALL TO HIM WE OWE
SIN HAD LEFT A CRIMSON STAIN
HE WASHES IT WHITE AS SNOW
