Page Four: “Blessed Are The Meek” 07/01/2012
Folks, the LORD has shown us His way. It’s yours to apply what He says.
Now you may be here today and know that you are not among the blessed as the Bible describes blessed. You might not be one of the meek Jesus refers to here.
As far as worldly things are concerned, you’ve likely experienced happiness; temporary fleeting happiness. But, up to this point in your life, this condition of blessedness has eluded you. And why? Simply because you have insisted on your ways and your will and your sins. You’ve never seen yourself as God sees you, a sinner who is destined for the judgment to come. And so, you’ve rejected Christ time and again.
Well, today is the day of salvation. Why would you not stand and repent and receive Christ today as your Savior and LORD. “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth on Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Folks, there is a day of salvation. Today is that day of salvation. Your sins became His sins. He took your sins on His body and paid the penalty for those sins on the tree we know as the Cross of Calvary. Why? Because as the Lamb of God He was here to become the Sacrifice for yours sins. It is the love of the lamb that draws each heart and moves us into the condition of blessedness with God.
What will you do about your sins today?
• “I Repent” = I change my mind about God, Christ, my sin, and God’s free gift of salvation.
• “I Believe” = I simply trust the Lord Jesus Christ alone as the One Who paid the entire penalty for my sins. And in believing, I make Him Lord over my entire life.
Today, will you receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your LORD and Savior? Shall we pray?
