“For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:10)
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (II Peter 3:9)
The Bible tells us that we are all sinners (Romans 3:23, Romans 3:10) and in need of a Saviour (John 3:7). Man without a Saviour is the servant of sin and is destined for an eternal death (Romans 6:23). Man could not pay his penalty for sin so God sent His son to pay it for us (John 3:16, Romans 5:8). Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6). He doesn’t require anything from us but simple faith (Romans 10:9-10) in the risen Christ who lived a sinless perfect life, tempted as we are yet without sin (Hebrews 4:15). He was crucified for our sins (I Peter 2:24) buried and rose again (I Corinthians 15:4) that we might live eternally in the heavens with Him (I Thessalonians 5:10). There is nothing we can do to inherit eternal life. It is the gift of God not of (our) works lest any man should boast (Ephesians 2:8-9). It isn’t about us. It is about the finished work on Calvary that bought our salvation (I Corinthians 6:20). It is a personal relationship with Him and free to all (Romans 10:13). Upon receiving Him as Saviour, the Lord will come and live in your heart in the presence of the Holy Spirit (John 14:26).
If you don’t know Christ as Saviour, I implore you right now to come to Him in prayer and ask Him into your heart. Realize that you are a sinner in need of a Saviour and that you can not get to heaven on your own merit. Confess to Him that you are a sinner and that you place your faith in Him, a God that can not fail. Ask Him to cleanse you of your sins by His precious sinless blood that He freely shed for you on Calvary. Ask Him to come and dwell in your heart in the person of the Holy Spirit that you may feel His presence and receive His instruction. Accept Him as Saviour and live your life according to His promises, commandments and ways. Ground yourself in His Word, the Holy Bible and find a local Bible believing church to grow in His grace and mercy and to fellowship with fellow believers.
If you have asked Jesus into your heart and accepted Him as Saviour, we ask that you get in touch with our ministry that we may pray for you as you continue to grow in Him. May God bless you and keep you in His tender care.
