For the Scriptures say, “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord,‘every knee will bend to me,and every tongue will confess and give praise to God.’”
This is where I might sound like a crazy person. But it’s not my words that are very clear of what is to come.
The end is near. Is it not evident as you listen to the news and compare it to what scripture says? Jesus will be returning soon to bring His followers home.
Today is the day.
2 Corinthians 6:2
For God says,“At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.”Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation.
Today is the day of your salvation. There is no more waiting. No more running. No more hiding. Jesus is waiting for you. He loves you. So much that He died for you. Died for your sins. Died so that you could live.
Sunday, April 21 was Mom’s day of salvation. In 1999 she walked in to my church at the time and met with Pastor Bill Kinnan. He was very clear with her.
“Have you ever prayed and asked Jesus to forgive you? Have you asked Him into your heart and life?”
Mom said she didn’t know. She had been trying to live for God. But she had been trying to do it in her own strength.
And so Pastor Bill prayed with her and she surrendered. She committed her life and her days to Jesus. She was reborn.
Life just got harder.
Seems backwards doesn’t it? After Mom was born again you would think it would have gotten easier. But for one, Jesus had alot of healing He needed to do in her life. And second, God never promised it would be easy. In fact He said it would be hard.
But hard is still good when you walk with Jesus.
Healing came. Years of counseling and prayer and daily surrender. Dad was reborn, they were both baptized and they changed. God changed them and Jesus shone brightly through them. And now they are made whole and are spending eternity with Jesus!
Do you have a day of salvation? You might not remember the exact day. And that’s ok.
But I beg of you to not wait. Tomorrow might not come friends. Do not waste another moment.
Every knee will bow. My knee will bow and your knee will bow. But don’t wait. Jesus offers joy and hope and healing today!
