Repentance

“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9

The love of God extends to each of us. Romans 5:8 says that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. He created us for relationship with Him which was destroyed in the Garden of Eden with the fall of man but God had a plan. Jesus. He loved us so much that He allowed His only Son (who knew no sin) to hang on a cross for humanity. What does He desire from us in return? That we lay down the very sin that caused the fall of man in Eden to follow Jesus. It’s not about religion but to walk with Jesus requires sacrifice. Laying down your life (the sinful life), for a holy God. The Holy Spirit helps us become more like Christ each day; looking less like our old selves and more like Jesus. Over time, the internal and external transformation will be evident. Rest assured that Jesus is coming back and He’s not coming for those who are “good”. He’s coming for those who kept His commandments, and lived a life of repentance, living for Him and no longer for themselves. Where will you spend eternity?

The Bible tells us that tomorrow is not promised to no one. Today is the day of salvation and it begins with repentance. There are no special words, just be honest before the Father. It goes a little something like this: Acknowledge you are a sinner in need of a Savior. Confess your sins, acknowledge Jesus is the Son of God and that He died on the cross of Calvary to save mankind from eternal damnation. Ask Him to write your name in the Lamb’s book of life (it holds the names those spending eternity with Him) and ask Him to help you live for Him until He calls you home or He returns. A humble, repentant heart is most important.

Please feel free to message me. I’d love to pray with you and for you if you’ve decided to accept Jesus as your Savior. I’d love to provide you with some information to help you along your new journey!
