There are many reasons Jesus died for you. Here are just a few.
A natural tendency is to wax and wane. Over time we can begin to be insensitive to others, and rationalize away our failures. We may be averse to honest self evaluation. We may redefine our “sin” and behavior – and negate the fact that we have actually changed.
God is asking us to turn from sin, and turn to Him. The simplicity of that Gospel of Jesus is so simple that many reject “turning”. How about you?
Be careful as you approach God. You might be doing evil – and not know it (Ecclesiastes 5:1). Do you legitimize your favorite sin as approved by God? Legit sins. What a deal that would be! Live anyway you want, but… just try to be very loving. God is so loving He’s sure to accept us, right?
A faith that overcomes the daily faith challenges of life – is only possible because God made us brand new inside. Have you been made brand new – in Jesus?
Are you looking to God in these latter days, the days which Jesus called “…the end”? Do you read the Scriptures that God has provided for us to know Him?
There is a place
where turning back’s a choice no longer
Hell is waiting but Jesus calls
What will it be for you?
Say you Heaven or say you Hell
Salvation in Christ is not essentially about sin. God does not save you because you throw away your sin, or because you are able to stop sinning. Salvation is about your yielding to Him in repentance. Big difference.
PIC: Chicago1Ray.twitter Are you living as if your mindset is protected by God? Convinced of it? Is your thinking following God’s Think? Think again – might save you an eternity of regret. A worldview that conflicts with His You may have played in church since a toddler, but that does not translate into God accepting […]
You can change the course of eternity! Do you want to really live large? Make Jesus your Savior, the Lord of your life — forever.
In whom do you trust? In whose hands is your eternal soul? What system of faith have you chosen? Do you really, really want to trust your eternal soul to THAT?
How long will God wait for you — to repent? Jesus waited 1,952 years for me, and then 7 more years. Jesus saved me! I’m so glad He waited.
Anything contrary to God’s expressed will has to be carefully avoided. Homosexuality, for example, is pushed nowadays as “okay by God”. But actually, it is listed in the Bible right beside many other practices that are not pleasing to God. Temptation towards any sin is NOT sinful. But, if we practice a sin, then we deny Christ. Want to please God in all you do?
Find blessed quiet for your soul in Jesus. You can trust Him. He is gentle and kind.
Time and tide are relentless. So are the many relentless Old Testament prophecies happening right now – but not in the way most thought they would be fulfilled. Are you ready for “the end” that Jesus spoke of? Take Jesus’ Challenge.
You do not have to stay on God’s Sin List… contrary, unholy, practicing sin. God wants us all to repent. Ready to repent?
Have you paused, drawn near to God in prayer… and given your life to Jesus? Don’t wait till you die to step into eternity – do it now through “rebirth” in Jesus.
I’m still workin’ more on being more consistently kind, more helpful, more tender-hearted, more forgiving. How ’bout you?
Are you going with God? Or, are you going against God? What’s it going to be?
Salvation is free in the sense that we pay no money, pay no church, pay no official, don’t have to “clean-up your life”… in order to accept God’s salvation. But salvation is not “free” to anyone: it will cost you dearly.
Was Jesus actually God? Or was He just a mere man like you and me? That is a question we must decide upon.
I live to be faithful and true daily, so I am ready when Jesus returns. How about you? Are you faithful and true to Jesus?
What was the biggest prophecy of all time? Think about it. It is so very clear to see.
What do you do with the sins of your past? Paul says, I am continually, consciousely, purposely forgetting all those things of my past, what is behind me. I leave them back there, behind me. And now — I press on.
Jesus warned us not to be dishonest with Him. You can NOT fake it with God. He knows your heart. You must be genuinely born again.
Jesus spoke this to Paul on the road to Damascus – one short verse that explains the Gospel of salvation in Jesus, in Acts 26:18.
God calls His followers to reject sin (2 Corinthians 7:1), all that He calls “sin”, and press on to our upward calling (Philippians 3:12-14). Fake faith does not fool God.
There is nothing more pressing, nothing more important at any time in your life – than to “be right with Christ”.
Oh how marvelous – His grace towards us, sinners all. When it comes to repentance for salvation – Jesus is all inclusive. He will accept any truly repentant sinner of any vile stripe. You name it, He will forgive. But His is a limited grace. Don’t try to squeeze-by in His courts of justice.
