No matter who you are, where you’re from, your social standing or your culture, EVERYONE must decide whether or not they will follow Christ.
This isn’t about choosing a religion; it isn’t about going to church; it isn’t about following rules. This is about believing in Jesus and allowing Him to transform your life.
16For 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. John 3:16 NIV
Even those who already claim the “Christian” title, still have to decide whether they will allow the character of Christ to be rooted in them or blend in with the world, it’s rational and agendas.
21But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God. John 3:21 NIV
Jesus warns Christians about the signs of the End:
You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8All these are the beginning of birth pains.9“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. Matthew 24:6-12 NIV
You may have known Him and walked away or have never met Him, Jesus gladly accepts you. He already paid the debt for your sin when He hung on the cross as a sacrifice for all mankind. He rose again and will soon return for those who believe in Him.
Again, this isn’t about religion! Jesus wants you to experience the freedom that comes from a RELATIONSHIP with Him. A relationship with Jesus doesn’t mean that issues of life disappear. It means that you no longer have to carry the burdens of life alone.
If you allow Him, Jesus will always be there to guide you, to comfort you, to protect you and cause you to stand strong. He will NEVER leave you or abandon you!
Salvation is a gift, but you have to accept it. If you believe, you can receive Jesus Christ right now by faith! The following is an example prayer:
Dear Jesus, thank You for loving me so much that You died for my sins and rose again that I could be saved. I acknowledge that I am a sinner. Please come into my heart today, purify me and cause my life to be pleasing to You from this day forward.
