Who would you let into your house?
How often have you gone to a funeral and heard the officiator say that that person is in hell? Never, I bet! It has always amazed me that when I have gone to the funeral of a professed atheist or anti-Christian, it is always said that they are in a better place or up there in the sky enjoying themselves or looking down on us smiling.
Heaven is Jesus’ house and what makes people think that Jesus will let them into His house when they haven’t even read His letter to them? If you take no notice of Jesus in this life, you can be assured that He won’t want anything to do with you after you have died in the next life.
Jesus has made this very clear. If you believe in Jesus you will not perish. If you don’t believe, you will be condemned.
“16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” (John 3:16-18 NIV).
The time is now to accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. Read His letter to you to know all about Him.
The time is short. Do not delay. Eternity is a long time to make the wrong decision today. Here is a prayer you can say. Carefully consider the words and really mean what you are praying.
Lord Jesus, I have ignored you for too long. I am a sinner and I cannot save myself. I am sorry for all the wrong things that I have done.
I want to trust you as my Lord and Saviour and I receive your gift of salvation by faith.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for coming to earth. I believe you are the Son of God who died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead on the third day.
Thank you for taking all my sins away and giving me the gift of eternal life. I believe your words are true. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus, and be my Saviour today. Amen.
