Voice in the Night

Wake up! "I will come again,"6 Jesus said when here on earth before returning to heaven. He promised to take all who believe in him to be with him in heaven forever."

Wake up! Jesus is coming again ... it may be today. Are you ready? Have you confessed your sinfulness to God and asked for and accepted his forgiveness?

Wake up! Jesus said, "I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in...."7

And I saw the dead, great and small,
standing before the throne [of God],
and books were opened.

Whatever you do don't miss God's wake-up call. Are you absolutely sure your name is written in God’s book of life? Have you confessed your sinfulness to God and opened the door of your life and invited Jesus, the Son of God, to come into your heart and life as your God and your Savior? If not, may I urge you to do that today ... right now ... by sincerely praying a simple prayer such as the following:

"Dear God, I hear your wake-up call, faint though it may be. I confess that I am a sinner and ask for your forgiveness. Thank you, Jesus, for dying on the cross to pay the penalty for all my sins. I invite you to come into my heart and life as my God and my Savior. With your help I repent of and turn from my sinful ways. Thank you for hearing my prayer, for forgiving me of my sins, and for coming into my heart and life as my Savior. Help me to live for you always in all ways. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."

Inviting Jesus into your heart and life as your personal Savior is your Passport into Heaven. Whatever, you do, don't leave Earth without it!

Here's Great Assurance

If you genuinely prayed the prayer to invite Jesus Christ into your life and truly meant it, you are now a true Christian and have the gift of a new spiritual life as well as eternal life. You are also a child of God and a member of his family.8 God promised this. Choose to accept it. Take it by faith and not feelings. Feelings change but God's Word never does.

God's Word says, "And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life."9

When you pray to receive Christ into your life, you have a brand new spiritual life and this life needs care and nurturing just as your physical life does. Again, if you prayed to invite Christ into your life, be sure to CLICK HERE or on the PASSPORT link above, fill in and submit the form and we will be send you the web address for helpful articles—all without charge.

A prayer to recommit your life to Jesus Christ:

"Dear God, I confess that I have strayed from my first love for you and want to recommit my life and way to you. Please help me to become the man/woman/teen you want me to be and always live a life that will please you and be a witness to others of your saving grace and power. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully in Jesus' name, amen.
