The Lord Jesus Christ is waiting for you with His hands extended to receive you. He has been waiting patiently all your life for you to humble yourself, repent, and turn away from your life of sin. He is ever looking the world over for those who will turn to Him in humility and seek righteousness.
For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward Him. 2 Chronicles 16:9
Do you even know or realize all the things you have done against the Lord God almighty? He who created the heavens and the earth. All of your lying, stealing, blasphemy against God, lust, hatred, cheating, and so much more. He sees you as a lawbreaker and a criminal for breaking His holy Law the Ten Commandments.
He is merciful and gracious to those who turn from sin. But will not let the guilty go unpunished.
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
Yes, He has written His commands upon your heart, your conscience is bearing witness against you that this is true. Whether you will listen to it or not. That decision is up to you. Everyone knows the difference between right and wrong. What will you decide?
For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them on that day when, according to my gospel, God judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus. Romans 2:14-16
Your days are numbered. You do not know how much longer He will be patient with you. How long do you have? Remember, over 150,000 people die each day on this earth. One day you will also die and you will stand before God, who is the holy Judge, and He will judge you in righteousness.
Jesus Christ is your only hope. He is the only way you can stand before God and not fall by His condemnation. Because of His perfect sacrifice, He can pay for your sins.
He is calling you. Will you listen and obey? Or will you rebel? Will you cover your ears and ignore His call to repentance? Will you refuse to listen to the message that will save you from an eternity of punishment and torment? He died, was buried, and rose again for the forgiveness of your sins.
Can you hear the Spirit of the Lord calling you? Do not ignore Him. But come to Him for complete forgiveness and healing. You must humble yourself and repent of your sins. Turning away from your lifestyle of sin and rebellion to His Law.
Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness, where your fathers put me to the test and saw my works for forty years. Therefore I was provoked with that generation, and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart; they have not known my ways.’ As I swore in my wrath, ‘They shall not enter my rest.’” Hebrews 3:7-11
Repent, therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, Acts 3:19-20
He loves you so much that He died for you on the cross of Calvary, taking the complete wrath of God upon Himself that you may be forgiven and save your soul from eternal death and torment in Hell, His place of punishment for sinners and lawbreakers.
Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was pierced for our transgressions; He was crushed for our iniquities; upon Him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with His wounds we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to His own way; and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:4-6
He is offering you forgiveness today. “Today is the day of Salvation,” says the Lord. Humble yourself and turn to Him. Forsake your wicked ways and seek Him, seek righteousness. For on the day of judgment you will be judged according to righteousness. On that day it will be too late to repent. It is His standard and His ways that you must live up to. It is Jesus that you must follow and obey.
It is not just a one day decision, but it is a lifelong decision to change your way of life. To turn every aspect of your life over to Jesus. To obey His commands and follow Him no matter what.
But without the cleansing power of Jesus’ blood, you have no hope, because He is the only one who can save you from Hell. He is the only one who can cleanse you from your sins and bring you into a right relationship with God.
Turn to the Lord Jesus today. I pray the Holy Spirit gives you the gift of repentance. Eyes that see, ears that hear, and a spirit that sorrows over your sin.
Do not wait, because tomorrow may be too late. Cry out to God for forgiveness.
No one is guaranteed another moment. One moment you may be living life to the fullest, thinking you are ok, then in the next you are swept into eternity. When will you choose Jesus? When will you choose life and forgiveness? He is waiting for you.
I was ready to be sought by those who did not ask for me; I was ready to be found by those who did not seek me. I said, “Here I am, here I am,” to a nation that was not called by my name. I spread out my hands all the day to a rebellious people, who walk in a way that is not good, following their own devices; Isaiah 65:1-2
