How did God do it!! How did He save us from going straight to Hell?? Eugene Peterson author of the Message Bible paraphrased the answer in 2 Corinthians 5:21,”How you ask? Well, in Christ [and Christ Only]. God put the wrong on him who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with God.” Jesus was the propitiation aka Atoning Sacrifice for EVERY SIN and not only my sins, but also for those of the whole world (I John 2:2)!! You see, you can ‘buy-in’ to this membership! Heaven is not a club or a time share. However, it’s very real, it’s our final destination, and the only way to obtain your “FREE” boarding pass is to say, “YES” to Christ (Ephesians 2:8).
If that’s you and if God’s spirit has been pulling at your heart strings “PLEASE” say this simple prayer:
Father God, stir up the beat in my heart today. I invite Jesus to become the Lord, and Master, of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send Your Holy Spirit to help me serve you in obedience, to serve my brothers/sisters selflessly, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen and amen!
