Are you lost? Are you struggling with each day? Are you looking for what is missing in your life? Are you seeking freedom from your trials? May I ask you to consider the following words and see what Christ can do for you this day!
I’m a good person. I do good. That’s enough.
The Bible says in the book of Romans 3:23- For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. And Romans 3:10- there is none righteous, no not one. We are all sinners and must recognize that there is none of us blameless our without sin.
Is sin really that big a deal?
There is a price for these sins and our sinful, naughty, filthy ways. Romans 6:23 The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ the Lord.
After what I have done, how could Christ have died for me?
There are only two choices in eternity, heaven or hell, and we make that decision before death. One day we will all face the Lord. We are all sinners and all deserve to spend an eternity in hell, but by the grace of God He gave His son, for me and for you. It is through Christ’s blood that my sin debt is paid. Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. It is only through faith and trust in JESUS CHRIST, depending on what He has done, that we can receive His gift of eternal life.
What do I do about my sin problem?
There is no work, no attitude, no gift, no actions, no good deed that I can do that will get me to heaven. It is only through faith in Christ and His death and resurrection, that I will be saved. Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
One July day 8 years ago, I asked Christ to forgive me and put ALL my trust in Him. Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
I know without a shadow of a doubt that one day I will see my Savior, Jesus Christ, and spend an eternity with Him, because of Him. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
I implore you…
You are not guaranteed the next year, month, day or even breath. The time is NOW! Choose ye this day the Lord! Recognize you are a sinner. Understand that you cannot pay for your sin, for the wages of sin is death. The death that sin has purchased for us is an eternity separated from God. But God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16). Believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died for you, was buried and rose again. Trust, depend on and believe that Jesus is your savior and hope.
