Today's Word - Monday March 10, 2014
From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
Jesus is the only name for Salvation
Jesus My Redeemer - Your Redeemer
IF YOU WERE TO DIE TODAY, CAN YOU SAY, WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT, THAT YOU WOULD FIND YOURSELF IN HEAVEN?
If your answer is not a definte YES, then you probably have to sit back and re-align your way with Him who is the Way, the Truth and the Life - This is Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me".
Apostle Paul in his epistle to the Romans in chapter 3 verse 23 stated clearly that "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God".Our short coming of His glory seperates us far away from His presence, in actual sense, our sins do not qualify anyone to come near God's presence and the penalty is eternal death.
However, God the Father, has given anyone who is willing to receive, the gift of eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord , "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23). The reason why Jesus Christ is the custodian of this eternal life is because He was the only One born without sin, passed through this world without sin and obediently sacrificed His Life for the whole human race. " For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit." (1 Peter 3:18).
Eternal life is a gift but a gift with priceless value, every individual person needs this precious gift of life and you can only receive this precious gift when you come to the cross. The infallible Word of God is quite clear on this matter, " If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9)
Jesus Christ is calling you today, Yes! He said "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give rest." (Matthew 11:28)
Do I hear you say Yes Jesus here I am! Then
Pray this prayer with me:
Heavenly Father, I know that I have broken Your laws and that my sins have separated me from You. I now make the choice to turn away from my past sinful life toward You
Please forgive me, and help me not to sin again. I believe that You sent Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ, who died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, and is now alive.
Now I invite Jesus Christ to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward.
Heavenly Father, please send Your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." The decision is yours! It's not accidental that you are here at this very time, don't procrastinate, the time for salvation is now, the price had been paid and it is a gift for you and me, therefore receive it.
