HOPE

If you were to breathe your last breath right now, are you 100% certain, without any doubt, that you would spend eternity in heaven?

If yes, why?

If your answer is anything LESS than the washing of the blood of Jesus through repentance and total surrender of your life to Christ through salvation, and walking in relationship with Him….

If your yes wasn’t that, or if you answered no

than you need to get real and face the fact that Heaven is to gain and hell is to lose. Jesus gave his everything and died a real death, on a real cross, then rose from a real grave, so you could walk in real love, through real repentance, by real grace of our Lord Jesus Christ!

Your momma can’t save you.
Your religion can’t save you.
Your denomination can’t save you.
Your tip in the offering plate can’t save you.
Nothing. That means NO THING can save you but the washing of the blood of Jesus. It is available to all but only applied by choice.

It’s your choice today. Because tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone. A N Y O N E ! (Proverbs 27:1)

But you say “I’m a believer.” So is the devil and his demons and they tremble. (James 2:19) You must be born again! (John 3:3)

But you say “I’m a good person.” Jesus even said why call me good, and he is JESUS. (Mark 10:18, Luke 18:19)

I pray that as you are reading this, the conviction of the Holy Spirit is revealing this to your heart. (John 16:13)

Because “all have sinned and fallen short” – yes in all your goodness, you simply are not good enough. (Romans 3:23)

Because “the wages of sin is death” which means you will, yes die eternally in the pit of hell by inexhaustible flames….but also your destiny will die; love, hope and peace will die before you ever breathe your last. (Romans 6:23)

BUT the “gift of God is eternal life” which means He is the God of 2nd chances and since you are still reading this – there is still hope in a perfect redemption and perfect restoration of all you have lost to the wages of sin. He is just that GOOD. (Romans 6:23)

In the same verse He reveals your judgment, he lays the road to salvation. (Romans 6:23)

If you’re still reading and ready to say Yes and give your all to Jesus. Pray this prayer, out loud AND with your heart

(no pastor, altar call or choir required…just you, your faith and the Love of Jesus. You bring the first 2, he’ll take care of the rest)

“Dear Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you. Forgive me of my sin. Wash and cleanse me. Set me free. Jesus, thank you that You died for me. I believe that You are risen from the dead and that you’re coming back again for me. Fill me with the Holy Spirit. Give me a passion for the lost and boldness to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Amen!

Real heart behind a real confession will render real change that looks like Jesus. Get baptized in water in obedience to Christ (by now just read all of Romans 6) (smile).
