Commentary By: Gordon King
Are you an unbeliever who has been thinking about accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? Have you heard about Jesus Christ and what He can do for you?
The world is an ugly place my friends, and getting worse by the day. There are only two things that can happen to you after you physically die. You either go to hell or to heaven. That’s it, no inbetweens, no second chances.
If you do not accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior while you are alive, then you shall go to hell. If you do choose Jesus then you will go to heaven. It’s that plain and simple!
This is God’s plan for us all, that we live with Him and for Him forever! He did this by coming into this world as a man, in the flesh, yet still God. His name is Jesus Christ. He came to pay our sin debt, all of it, past, present and future. Although we do not deserve it, that’s how much He loves us!
Jesus Christ (who is God in the flesh) was crucified on the cross of His own volition, shed His blood to pay for our sins. Then He was buried in a tomb for three days. After three days He arose from the tomb and ascended into heaven to be with the Father. This is the gospel of Jesus Christ. Believe in these things and you shall be saved!
God has offered to each and every one of us this free gift of eternal life. None of us deserve it, none of us can pay for it. It is a free gift, a gift of grace from God.
You may think that your life is just too messed up, that you have committed crimes which are way too gruesome to be forgiven. Well, they aren’t! God will forgive all sins (except blasphemy of the Holy Spirit). However, if you blasphemed against the Holy Spirit, then you would not want to accept Christ! So rest assured, that if you are seeking to “get saved”, then you have not blasphemed against the Holy Spirit. This is the way I see it.
You don’t have to clean up your life before accepting Christ. He will accept you the way that you are. However, you do need to repent of your sins and then believe in His gospel.
Thank you benaiah juma!
