He's the KING of KINGS
He's the LORD of LORDS
Do you believe this? Do you confess Him now? I hope so, I hope you do not wait until the day when Jesus returns and all will confess Him. Because today is the day to make that decision, please do not wait.
"The most dangerous of all delusions is that there is plenty of time."
~ William Barclay~
"Therefore God has also highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2:9-11
The Bible says EVERY knee will bow and EVERY tongue will confess that JESUS IS LORD!
Please understand. I am not asking if you "Believe in God" or if you know there is a God.
What I am asking you is if you believe that He is the way to eternal life in heaven, admit that you have sinned, and completely trust Him as your Savior?
There is nothing you can do to earn this. NOTHING. If there was anything we could do to earn our salvation, our eternal life, Then Why did Jesus Have to Die on the Cross???
As many of you know, I could go on and on. But right now I just want to share what the Bible says.
First understand that you are a sinner:
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."
Romans 3:10-18 The ways of the sinner: they do not seek after God, turned away from God, does no good, their mouth practices deceit, mouth is full of cursing and bitterness, swift to shed blood, their way is destructive and miserable, they do not know peace, they do not fear God. (my paraphrase)
But even though God knew we would sin, He died for us:
Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord."
Romans 5:8 "But God demonstrated His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
So what must you do?
Romans 10:9 "that if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
Romans 10:13 "For everyone that calls on the name of the Lord, shall be saved."
The result of salvation and giving your life to Christ:
Romans 5:1 "Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord, Jesus Christ."
Romans 8:1 "There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."
Romans 8:38-39 "For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, no principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
If you have not done this or do not understand, please do not wait another day. Talk to someone who can help explain further. It is the sole reason we are on this earth!
One last thought, how do I know that my sweet Audrey is in heaven if she was never able to proclaim and accept Christ herself?
There are many things I could mention here, and I will go into more detail later. But what I can tell you right now is that the Bible says eternal life is for those who willingly profess their trust in Jesus Christ. And eternal damnation is for those who willingly deny Him and his free gift of Salvation. Our babies who have died before they were able to make this choice have been given the gift of salvation and heaven.
Spurgeon: “it is not that God chooses someone to salvation because they are going to die in infancy. Rather, He has ordained that only those who have been chosen for salvation will be allowed to die in infancy.”
We will talk more about the eternity of babies and young children who have died. But for now, I want to know,
Have You Made Your Choice???
