The most important decision you will ever make in your life is the one that deals with your eternal destiny. In John 3:16 Jesus made this statement: For God so loved the world, that He gave His only son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. God loves you! He loves you so much that He sent Jesus to die in your place, as your substitute, so that you would not have to perish and go to hell, but instead receive salvation and eternal life with Him.
Today, right where your are, in whatever situation you may be facing, realize the fact that God LOVES you. He has already taken care of every sin, mistake and failure. There is no sin, mistake or failure big enough to stand between you and God. Jesus died on a cross to take all of your sins away, and now, all that stands between you and eternal life is a simple decision – the decision to allow Jesus Christ to be the Lord and Savior of your life. It’s not hard – you don’t have to “clean up” first – God already knows all about you, and loves you anyway! He made the decision to love you, and to send His son to die for your sins, in spite of whatever you’ve done, or however you’ve lived up to now. God does not want anyone to perish, but His desire is that all would come, repent and receive eternal life. (1 Timothy 2:4; 2 Peter 3:9) That includes you, right now! Jesus invites anyone and everyone to come and receive His free gift of salvation. (Revelation 22:17) He stands at the door to every man’s heart knocking, and asking to come in. (Revelation 3:20) He is standing at the door to your heart right now, but only you can open the door.
Do that today, right now! Don’t wait for some other time. Some other time may never come. Jesus loves you. Come as you are, to Him, in simple faith and give your life to Him. Give Him all of your cares because He cares for you! (1 Peter 5:7)
Wherever you are as you read this, take a few moments to offer up your heart and life to the Lord. Romans 10:9,10 tells us how to open the door of our hearts to the Lord, and let Him in. It’s very simple, and it’s all by faith, not feelings! If you believe in your heart that Jesus is God’s son, and that God raised Him from the dead for your sins, then all that’s left to do is offer your life to Him, and decide to make Him the Lord and Savior of your life, living for Him from this day forward. You can do that! It’s not hard, but very simple. Pray this simple prayer right now, to the Lord. He is listening and will do exactly what you ask.
Dear Lord Jesus, I come to you today, believing you are the son of God, that you died on a cross for my sins, and that God raised you from the dead for my salvation, so I open the door to my heart and invite you in. I give you my life today, asking you to forgive me of all my sin, and make you the Lord and Savior of my life. From this day forward, I belong to you, Lord, and I will live for you, my Lord Jesus, all the days of my life. Thank you for loving me, dying for me, and for saving me from my sins. I am forgiven. I am now a child of God. I am yours, and you are mine! Amen!
