John 3:16-17, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
God has made a way for every person to be saved. He paid the price in full to forgive us of our sins. He offers His salvation to everyone. There is plenty of room in heaven for every person that will receive Jesus in their hearts as their Lord and Savior. God is calling us to confess and repent of our sins so that we can be born again and become a child of God. This opportunity for salvation was given to mankind over 2,000 years ago when Jesus died upon a cross. And the offer still stands today for each of us.
God demonstrates His love and mercy to us by making a way for us to be redeemed. He made a way for us to become one of His precious children, so that we might glorify Him and learn to fulfill His eternal purpose for our lives. God is loving and merciful. While our sins separate us from God, God sent Jesus to be a bridge for us from earth to heaven and so that we can be delivered from the bondage of sin. Romans 6:23 says, for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. God has provided for us the gift of eternal life. He offers us the fullness of His salvation today. He invites to live a full life glorifying Him and fulfilling our potential in Him.
God awaits our response. The invitation is there for all of us. The choice is ours. God loves us so much and has incredible plans for our lives.
I invite you today to open your heart and mind to God. I encourage you to invite God into your life and be the center of it. If you want to know more about God, have questions, just curious about Him, or maybe just feel like you have an empty void that can’t really be filled, then I also invite you today to visit a good local church. You can begin a journey to know more about God and get answers to your questions. You can experience God’s love and His peace, which passes all understanding. You do not have to feel hopeless or without peace. He is waiting to welcome you. God cares about you. He loves you! He brings light to even the hopeless of situations and a peace that passes all understanding. Just take that first step by opening your heart to God.
