Title: God doesn’t want you to perish.
God created you to have a relationship with you. He loves you and wants you to know Him personally and intimately. I know that everyone of us has been hearing about God. We even call Him many times in a day. Everything that happens in our life suddenly we always say oh my God! . The question is do we really know Him? If we don’t know Him personally and intimately, using His name or calling his name will not be of use to any of us. For instance, we all know the current president of United States, by picture or through the news etc. but we don’t know him personally. For us to go visit him where he is residing, we must have personal relationship with him. Then he will know you and allow you to come visit him. We hear about him on the news and read about him but we don’t know him, and he doesn’t know us.
For us to go to the president of United state or president of any country, is not possible, we can’t even call them on the phone. But God opened a channel of communication to Him through our savior Jesus Christ.( Romans 10:9-10) “If you declare 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 profess your faith and are saved.
God wants us to come closer to Him through our savior Jesus Christ, He came to fix and restore our relationship with God. We need to receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and savior so He will come to our life and do the restoration process. That salvation is very important, that is the first step in this restoration process. Salvation does not come from attending church services, keeping laws or being good or doing good work, Salvation comes from having faith in Christ. (Romans 3:23-24) For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
The only way our relationship with God can be connected back is by acknowledging that we have sinned and accept the great sacrifice Jesus made on the cross .That salvation is already there, all we have to do is to make the first move to accept Jesus . He has done His own part, the rest is in our hands. (2 Corinthians 6:2) For He says, in the the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you. “ I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.
Beloved, if you have not known Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior, please do not delay. We don’t know when our savior Jesus Christ shall return. God bless you.
Prayers: Thank You Jesus for going to the cross of Calvary for my sins. I ask you Lord to come into my life and forgive my sins. Help me to be rapture ready so when the trumpet shall sound I will not miss heaven in Jesus name. Amen.
