Jesus Christ is the Way the Truth and the Life……without Him we have no way, no truth, and we have no life. If we reject God’s only sacrifice for sin, we will pay for our sins ourselves for eternity. If we reject Jesus we reject eternal life and face eternal death.
Jesus offers grace, forgiveness, life, and the pure joy of salvation. He offers it freely in His love for us. He stands with His arms wide open saying, “I love you, come to me before it’s too late.” He weeps for the lost. His heart breaks for the heart that has rejected Him.
We are sinful human beings. You hear it all the time, “nobody’s perfect.” We admit it ourselves. We are sinful, no question about it, and sin must be dealt with.
But sin was dealt with, on the cross. Jesus gave Himself as the perfect sacrifice for sin once and for all. As sinners our sin must be dealt with and we have two choices as to how.
Receive the sacrifice Jesus made, and in response, turn from our sins toward Him to follow Him as Lord and God.
Continue our own way down the path we are already on. The path to hell and eternal punishment, paying the price for our own sins, having rejected God’s provision for the way out.
Nothing in life is more important than this decision. No amount of success or money or power or pride or anything will ever come even close to being as important as this.
“What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?” Mark 8:36-37 [NIV]
What is your soul worth? We are here for only a short time on this earth. Eternity is forever. Eternity is outside of time itself. It will never end. Where you spend it is up to you. God has provided a way. He loves you. He wants you to come to Him. But the choice is yours and yours alone. No one can make it for you.
I pray you choose Jesus today. Choose Life! It’s not God’s desire that anyone should perish. It’s not mine either. I was once lost without Jesus and He saved me. He brought me to faith in Him and repentance from sin. He showed me the worth of my soul. He died for me. He took my sin upon His shoulders so I wouldn’t have to. And He did the same for you.
Give your life to Jesus. He sees you, your very heart and soul as a precious treasure worth dying for. He loves you more than you can ever know.
What is your soul worth to you?
