Christian: Hello, what’s your name?, I’d like to ask you a few questions. Do you think you are a good person? Have you ever lied? What do you call someone who has told a lie? A liar right? Have you ever stolen anything? What do you call someone who has stolen? Anything, even your bosses time from work. A thief. Have you ever looked lustfully at women? Jesus said, “If you look at a women with lust that you have already committed adultery with her already in your heart? Have you ever done that?
By your own confession, you are a liar, a thief, and an adulterer at heart. The Bible says that all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God. If you were to die right now and God were to judge you…would God let you into heaven or hell?
If you say “Heaven” why? Because you think that God is good and He will let you in? Well, try that in a court of law. You lied, stolen, and committed adultery and the the Judge says, “I am about to pass judgment, do you have anything you want to say?” And you say, “Yes, I believe you are a good judge and will grant me mercy and let me go”.
It’s true that the judge is good, but because of His goodness, the judge will make sure that that justice is done and will punish liars, thieves, murderers, rapists.
So if God judges you, God is Holy and knows everything you ever did and has seen everything you ever thought about. God has seen your motives too. God will do justice on you after you die. Does this concern you? Even if you do not believe this, it’s true because Jesus said it. Read the Bible. Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and see what Jesus Himself said.
Read Luke 16 and see how hell is and how heaven is. And Choose.
If you want God’s forgiveness of sins, then there is good news. God sent His Son, Jesus Christ to earth 2000 years ago to live a righteous life and then die for our sins. Jesus resurrected Himself from the grave. He proves who He was by perfect life, by the fulfilled prophecies, by the miracles and by God Himself when God said from heaven, This is my beloved Son. Listen to Him
God doesn’t desire to kill you but save you. It doesn’t matter what you have done. Come back to God and turn from your sins. Ask God to forgive you. Come with a broken heart that you have sinned against God but He loved you so much to take your sin upon Himself and physically and spiritually suffer in your place.
See the loving eyes of Jesus looking at you now, bleeding for you and dying for you. Come to Jesus and ask Jesus to remember you, forgive you. Trust that God can and will forgive you by His faithful promises and do not trust in your own works no more.
Dear God, please save me. I trust you. I need you. Please forgive me of my sins. I want to life for you now. Please help me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
