God has implanted his law in our hearts for it is how our conscious distinguishes between right and wrong. Therefore, no one is without excuse on judgment day. God has also given us the ability to choose to serve Him or the devil- who is the master of this world for he is the reason why there is so much evil in the world today.
So some ask, why choose for when I die I will no longer be living? Well, I can tell you that is further from the truth. When we physically die it does not mean we no longer exist, no, our souls/spirits live on, now, whether we go to be with God or hell it is all up to YOU. You choose your destiny because God has given you the privilege to decide what you want.
For Jesus came to give us life and give it more abundantly. He was born of the Virgin Mary, lived on earth among us, died on the cross, resurrected on the third day, and ascended to his Father. Now, once we have acknowledged and accepted God’s truth which is the gospel of Christ-the good news, we are born again of the spirit becoming Christians- followers of Christ. We have been given the opportunity to make things right with God. His grace and love reconciles us back from the time Adam and Eve disobeyed Him and ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
Repenting of our sins and accepting the Lord Jesus Christ has our Savior and Lordship of our lives keeps you from going to hell- a place created for the devil and his angels, a place where there is constant pain, agony, and suffering- a place where you no longer will have contact with God. How horrible!
So some are saved, but still live as those people in the world live, why? Well, they have not allowed the word of God to convict and work in their lives. To experience spiritual change in our lives, we need to receive, accept and allow God’s holy word to transform our hearts, minds and souls. You see many of us are attempting to play God with our lives which we fail miserably. God’s power through his Spirit, who is in us, empowers us to change. When we submit to his word, we make Jesus Christ Lordship of our lives.
My friends, God has been very patient with us all, therefore, we have to get our hearts right before him. Salvation is the good news of Jesus Christ- who was in the beginning, is and will come.
Yes, it is not easy to submit to God’s will, but we have to ask Him to reveal his truth to us for it shall set us free, and that is a promise. Amen!
