Page Five: “Tied To Jesus Christ” 3/17/13
Are you one of those who like the Person of Jesus and His words and His life; yet you’ve never repented of your sin and trusted in Him?
Salvation is the mightiest work of God there is. Why? because in salvation God transforms you from a sinner into a Saint. Paul wrote these words and the entire Colossian epistle to quote “the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse..”
Are you counted among those who are “in Christ”? If not, why not?
Have you settled the fact that it was your sins that nailed Jesus to the Cross of Calvary? “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whososever believes on Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
John 3:36 “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
This is why we command you to repent and believe on Christ. Your sins completely and specifically close down fellowship with God. Here’s the simple truth of Scripture. Acts 20:21 “Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Acts 17:30 “… but now commandeth all men every where to repent:…”
When you repent, you could say to God “I change my mind about God, Christ, faith, my sin, and God’s free gift of salvation.”
When you believe, you could say to God “I simply trust Jesus Christ alone as the One Who paid the entire penalty for my sins.”
Now, the question is still the same as it was yesterday and the yesterday before that. Have you repented of your sin and placed your faith in Jesus Christ alone for your eternal security?
Here’s the sinner’s prayer. Have you prayed it? Are you “in the fountain”? Or, are you standing just outside.
“LORD, thank you for your forgiveness. Thank you that Your forgiving me is full and complete. Thank you for the work of Jesus Your Son who paid the entire debt of my sin so that I can enjoy the full debt cancelled.”
Will you surrender to Jesus Christ and obey Him? Will you right here today pray this prayer for salvation? If not, why not? Christ has made a way for you to both be saved for eternity. Are you saved?
Listen to one final word from Jesus if you are one of those who are standing outside. Revelation 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”
Have you opened the door? Today is the Day of salvation. Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.
Trust Jesus Christ and He will come into your life.
Shall we pray?
