The Bible is clear…you must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God. One day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord…but will it be too late? We’re all going to spend eternity somewhere, where will you be?
Does He know you? In the Bible Jesus says in Matthew 7:21-23…
I Never Knew You
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
If you don’t know, my prayer is that He will open your eyes to the truth found ONLY in His word. I pray that He will soften your heart to be receptive to the truth. I don’t believe we have to beg God for anything, I believe He is ready, willing and able to save you right now, this very minute. I believe with all my heart that He wants you to be saved. It is the will of God that all should come to repentance. And when we do, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins. That is how you are saved.
You admit you are a sinner, you confess that Christ is the Son of God sent by God to die for your sins; to take the punishment that should be yours. He was sinless and holy yet died a terrible death on a cross to bring you back into right relationship with your Creator and Heavenly Father, God Almighty. He did this because He loves you. Then on the third day He rose from the dead to give us victory over death, hell and the grave.
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
You see, it is God’s will that you be saved. But it says, “might be saved.” because it’s still up to you to accept that free gift of salvation. God is willing, but I beg YOU right now. I’m begging you…please ask God to show you the truth. Accept His free gift of salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ Jesus alone and be born again into the family of God.
Think of it like this…we’re on a sinking ship right now and I have a life-preserver but you don’t. I extend my hand and offer to help you…it’s your choice whether of not you will grab ahold of my hand. My hand is extended to give you the Gospel…to invite you to call out to Jesus. Will you take my advice? Will you call upon Him? He says anyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved. (Romans 10:13)
