An Invitation to Accept Christ
Today the road may have seemed steep, and you feel alone. Someone you trust has disappointed you. God sees your tears. He feels your pain. He longs to comfort you, for He is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
God loves you so much that He sent His only Son, Jesus, to die in your place. He will forgive you for every sin you have committed, if you are willing to leave your sins and turn from them.
Maybe you feel, “He won’t forgive my sins for they are too great. You don’t know the sins I’ve committed, I strayed too far from His love.”
I understand your thoughts, dear soul. I, too, felt unworthy and undeserving of His love. I stood at the foot of the cross pleading for mercy, but such is the grace of our God.
The Scripture says, “…I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” ~ Mark 2:17b
Soul, that includes you and me.
No matter how far into the pit you have fallen, God’s grace is greater still. The dirty despondent souls, He came to save. He’ll reach down His hand to hold yours.
With your heart bowed, say to the Lord:
“I am a sinner. I’ve been a sinner all of my life. Forgive me, Lord.”
Maybe you are like that fallen sinner. She came to Jesus, knowing He was the One who could save her. With tears streaming down her face, she began to wash His feet with tears, and did wipe them with her hair. He said, “Her sins, which are many, are forgiven…” Soul, can He say that of you tonight?
You may have tears streaming down your face as you relate to her. Maybe you’ve looked at pornography and you feel ashamed, or you’ve committed adultery and you want to be forgiven. “Cast me not away from Thy presence. Forgive me for the evil I have done.” You’re as guilty as she was, but the same Jesus who’s forgiven her will also forgive you tonight.
One day you will stand before the Lord, transparent in His presence. The books of your life will be open to be judged. Every thought… every word… every motive of your heart will be revealed in His illuminating light. What shall you say in His presence? Say to the Lord: “I’ve made a mess out of my life, I want to be forgiven.” God sees your heart, dear soul. Sure, you made wrong choices, but He still loves you!
Maybe you thought about giving your life to Christ, but put it off for one reason or another. “Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.” ~ Hebrews 4:7b
The Scripture says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” ~ Romans 3:23
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” ~ Romans 10:9
Don’t fall asleep without Jesus until you are assured of a place in heaven.
Tonight, if you would like to receive the gift of eternal life, first you must believe in the Lord. You have to ask for your sins to be forgiven and put your trust in the Lord. To be a believer in the Lord, ask for eternal life. There’s only one way to heaven, and that’s through the Lord Jesus. That’s God’s wonderful plan of salvation.
You can begin a personal relationship with Him by praying from your heart a prayer such as the following:
“Oh God, I’m a sinner. I’ve been a sinner all of my life. Forgive me, Lord. I receive Jesus as my Savior. I trust Him as my Lord. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
If you have never received the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior, but have received Him today after reading this invitation, please let us know. We would love to hear from you. Your first name is sufficient.
Today, I made peace with God...
