For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with His angles; and then He shall reward every man according to his works.
The truth of Salvation is beautifully simple.
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, that He died once and for all to save us from sin, and that He rose again and ascended into heaven.
That He is God incarnate, and sits in heaven awaiting the appointed time for His return.
For one day He will.
That is why living daily for Jesus, loving Him and obeying His commandments is vital.
No person knows when He will return.
Nor is there a better time to prepare for His return than right now.
Salvation can not be earned by good works, nor can it be bought.
Instead it is a free gift from Jesus Christ, Son of God.
That doesn’t mean that the gift wasn’t costly.
The truth of the matter is it cost more than any human could ever pay.
It cost more than any gift ever did before or ever will again.
It cost more than any one in humankind can truly comprehend.
Yet, what a blessed gift!
The only thing accepting this free gift will cost you is your will freely given over to Christ, Who understands far better than we what He created each one of us for.
He simply wants to have a relationship with each one of us and walk with us daily into the paths He and the Father set down for our feet before our birth.
He promises never to leave us nor forsake, but to supply all our need.
What gift can possibly compare?
A security in Jesus Christ lasts beyond death and the grave.
Eternity in heaven.
A path of service to God, while growing in daily relationship with Him.
Having peace in a world so full of turmoil, because of the precious daily walking surrender to Jesus.
For me, it’s such a wonderful and beautiful choice.
And I look forward to His return with anticipation and joy.
But I fully understand that this choice is repulsive to some.
Foolhardy and slow-witted do they view those who walk in faith with Jesus Christ.
Even as Christ walked among man and did nothing but good, He was despised and eventually executed by those He came to save.
So, I too can choose, as Jesus did, to love others, even those who despise me and my Lord Jesus.
But as for you, dear Reader, I truly pray, as I pen these lines, that your heart shall be soft to the voice of Salvation.
That if you have yet to know Jesus, you would take the opportunity to read His Words in the gospels.
The book of John is my favorite.
Although, each is so beautiful and vital.
Because some day, Jesus will return and each of us will stand before the throne to answer for how we lived on this Earth.
I hope you will be able to stand clean before God, washed in the blood of His Son.
