No matter what you have done or what has been done to you… one question remains: What will YOU do with Jesus? He’s done everything possible for you. God loves you dearly, He’s demonstrated that clearly, what else can He do?
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12
“The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9
True relationships are reciprocal, they cannot be one-sided only. There is a unique difference between human relationships and one with our Holy Creator. We were born under the curse of sin, therefore relating to God must be through Jesus Christ who has paid the penalty for our sin. There is a choice involved. To ignore His gentle call means by default rejection of Him because the Holy Spirit is continuously calling us unto the Father. His love is bestowed without favor, He loves unconditionally at all times. Only He can know our hearts completely and how to best work in our lives to bring about true and lasting fullness of joy. No human relationship can ever replace the intimacy we can experience with Jesus Christ.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9
“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. “ Galatians” 6:7
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ Matthew 7:21-23
In God’s loving-kindness, He made a way for us to reciprocate our love to Him. And at His appointed time, God will avenge all evils committed, and only the blood of Christ will protect from the judgment of God. Each soul will stand before Him, naked, without excuse one day. We decide now what our standing (legally) in His courtroom will be. Will you accept the Advocate He provided? Embracing this wonderful Savior is the wisest decision you can make.
