Want to stop being dead?
If what Jesus is offering sounds pretty good I’ve got even more good news for you in case you missed it. Salvation (being saved from death and hell, being made right with God, being made alive for all eternity) is a free gift. The only thing you have to do is believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He came here in human form, that He died on the cross to pay for your sins, and that He rose from the dead.
Romans 10:9 says, “That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
John 1:12 says, “Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” We not only get forgiven, we get adopted. God is truly our Father!
Look back at the door. Your door. Realistically, this is not the door to your room, but the door to your heart. Jesus is still out there, knocking. In Revelation 3:20, Jesus says, “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.”
Have you decided whether you want to let Him in? Hold that thought for one more minute. I’m not going to try to talk you INTO it, in fact, it might sound like the opposite. But that’s how Jesus rolls.
