You know it and God knows it. Take a serious look at the Ten Commandments, and you will see that you most likely have broken all of them. Yes, I said all. “But I haven’t murdered anyone, or committed adultery,” you say. But according to Jesus standard, you probably have. You know, God knows. In Mathew chapter five, Jesus speaks on both murder and adultery of the heart. Mathew 5:21-22: “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without cause shall be in danger of the judgment.” Mathew 5: 27-28: “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
You are a sinner, but that is just the bad news, the Good News is life-changing, and Life giving. While reading Romans 5:8, we find that it is written: God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 6:2 says: for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Jesus died for us while we were still sinners, not when we were righteous men or women. It is written: There is none righteous, no, not one (Romans 3:10).
God is willing to forgive you for your sins, and usher you into eternal life. Without Christ, Hell is your fate. I am not conjuring this from my wild imagination; no, this message is one that has been written down for centuries. God has also taken the time to inscribe this truth on each and every one of our hearts: For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man--and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things (Romans 1:18-23).
Give your life to Jesus now, today. It is written in 2Corinthians 6:2b: Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. This could be your last chance, pray to receive Him today.
Jesus is coming soon to rapture His church, are you ready? If not, get so, soon! Maranantha! Come Lord Jesus!
