My heart is on fire with passion to preach the Gospel. My prayer is that everyone who reads this blog will come to Jesus and be saved. That is the sole purpose of my calling in Christ. God does not want anyone to perish. He wants everyone to come to repentance, and His Word is clear that everyone who calls on the Name of the Lord will be saved!
2020 has been a year of perilous times. Many people are scared of dying, but I want you to know that you do not need to be scared when you know Jesus. There is no fear in His perfect love. We can rest in Him and trust in Him completely to save our souls. The Lord is calling me to share the Gospel with you again today, and it is my great hope that those of you who do not know Jesus will come to Him today.
“If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”
-1 John 4:15-18
“Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.”
-1 John 5:1-5
“This is the one who came by water and blood–Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify: the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. We accept man’s testimony, but God’s testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart. Anyone who does not believe God has made him out to be liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.”
-1 John 5:6-12
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the great truth and gift of God’s grace that anyone in the whole world can be saved through faith in Jesus. This gift of God can never be earned by works or any other way. There is only one Way to Heaven, and that is through faith in God’s one and only Son, Jesus Christ.
“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. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.”
-Jesus speaking in John 3:16-18
“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
-2 Peter 3:9
“And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
We must understand that we all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. None of us are making it to Heaven on our own. We must agree with God that we are sinful, and we must repent and turn to Jesus.
“But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
There is no condemnation in Jesus Christ. Once you believe in Jesus, your sins are forgiven and you stand reconciled with God, and justified by faith in Jesus. You have peace with God, and you are set free from the bondage of sin and death!
“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.”
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.”
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.”
There is no boasting in Heaven. We cannot get there on our own because we are sinful and we need a Savior. We must receive the gift of salvation by faith, and Jesus is the only One who ever died to save our souls. God offers this amazing gift of His grace to all mankind. No matter who you are or where you live on this earth, you can be saved through faith in Jesus Christ!
“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”
“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile–the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Once you believe in Jesus, God will fill you with His Holy Spirit, which seals you for the day of redemption and empowers you to live a holy life that pleases God. This is a powerful miracle of God, and we must have the Holy Spirit to live righteously.
“And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession–to the praise of his glory.”
“The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.”
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”
As Jesus said regarding the Holy Spirit:
“Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”
Once you believe in Jesus, your salvation is eternally secure. We are saved by God’s grace alone through faith in Jesus alone, and nothing can snatch you out of His hand or separate you from His love.
“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”
-Jesus speaking in John 10:27-30
“Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”
“I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.”
-Jesus speaking in John 5:24
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
What will you choose? Condemnation, or eternal life? Sin and death, or forgiveness and salvation? I pray with all my heart that you choose eternal life, forgiveness, and the salvation of your soul through faith in Jesus! This most precious gift is being offered to you today, and today is the day of salvation!
“As God’s fellow workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain. For he says,
“In the time of my favor I heard you,
and in the day of salvation I helped
I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.”
-2 Corinthians 6:1-2
Just as it is written in God’s Word:
“From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.”
“In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”
“How can a man be born when he is old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born!”
Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.”
Jesus loves you! Come to Jesus today and be born of the Spirit, and you will receive the salvation of your soul! Jesus Christ is Lord, and there is no other Name by which we must be saved! Through faith in Jesus, all your sins will be forgiven and you will receive eternal life! Choose wisely!
“When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Grace and peace to you all in the powerful saving Name of Jesus!
