“23 For the wages of sin is death, but thegift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
NIV Romans 6:23
I am a sinner just like you and in a perfect and pure presence of God Our Creator, there is no place for sin. Where the light rules, there is no place for darkness. To be able to get rid of our darkness and eternally dwell in light, we need help. Divine help. We can’t do it on our own. We can be good, we can be kind, we can be loving, still there is a nature to us that is not perfect and not pure. Despite that, God LOVES US! He is merciful. He is just. He is good. Accept God’s gift today: Salvation and Eternal Life through Christ Jesus.
“1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. 2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.”
When Jesus was sent to die for our sins, He was sent to redeem the whole World. Not just a part of it, not just Israel, or Italy, or Tanzania, or Russia. The Whole World! My distant friend at the opposite side of the world, Jesus paid the price for your sins too. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. And if you ever wondered if Jesus can forgive your sins, the answer is – YES! All you have to do is invite Him into your heart. No special words are needed, just say it as you feel. Ask Jesus to come into your heart today, ask Him to forgive your sins, believe on Him and ask Him to be your Lord and Savior. Remember, He was sent to pay the price for the sins of the whole world.
“8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.”
Today my prayer is that all that have been taught to be pure and without sin, may see the light of God and become aware that everyone is a sinner. I pray that all who believe their good works will make them deserving of the eternal life become aware that it will not. I pray that all who have hope but they are not quite sure if God will have mercy on them, become aware that they don’t have to doubt anymore. To all who have recognized themselves in all of the above: Jesus died to pay the price for our sins. Our hope and assurance is in Him. Believing in Him cleanses our sins, makes us pure and deserving of eternal life in Heaven. There is no other way.
“6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
How limitless and how amazing is God’s Love?! Solely by His Grace we have been saved. It is the ultimate Gift to the humanity. And it is meant for everyone, every person that walks this Earth. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. No amount of our own good works will erase our sins and bring us to Heaven. None. Through Christ Jesus only, we are saved and made worthy of everlasting life. Believe in Jesus Christ. Start your journey with Him today!♥
Keep your heart cheerful. Do things you love. Enjoy small moments. Make memories. Don’t hold grudges. Forgive. Let go of pride, anger, envy. Those will eat away your heart and make you sick. Let Jesus handle your troubles; give it all to Him. He WILL heal your heart.
