I’ve noticed a lot of people dying lately. I’ve been to more funerals this year than my entire life. I thought it might be a good time to put this out there.
Faith in Jesus is the only way into Heaven. THERE IS NO OTHER WAY! You cannot get there by being a good person. God only allows entry into Heaven to individuals who have trusted their lives to Jesus. Some of the people who’ve died recently were saved by their faith, but others, I’m not sure if he knew them. The most dreadful thing to hear Jesus say when you pass from this life is: “And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’” Matthew 7:23
I guarantee you will hear those words if you die without trusting your life to him.
Don’t let another minute go by without Jesus in your life. Death comes to everyone, and none of us know when our time is up. Ask now for Jesus to become the Lord of your life, to forgive you of your sins. He will accept anyone who asks. I know what you’re thinking; it can’t be that easy, but it is! And, believe me, it’s worth the change of direction. The Bible says in Romans 9:10, “because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
If you have no idea how to pray, pray this:
Heavenly Father, I recognize that I am lost in my sin. I need a Savior. I accept the sacrifice of your son Jesus, who laid down His life for me. This day I choose to believe in him and ask for forgiveness of my sins. I ask Jesus to reign as Lord of my life forever. Thank You for drawing me to you and accepting me as your child. Amen.
