The Man Who Created Himself
“Know ye that the LORD he is God. It is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves. We are his people and the sheep of his pasture” (Psalm 100:3, Genesis 1-3).
The moment you forget the fact that you did not create yourself, life to you becomes about hopeless complaints, frustration, blaming fellow human beings for your failure and possibly suicide. This is to remind you that you did not create yourself. You are God’s project and God never abandons any project.
Friend! It is time to revert to the only one who truly loves you to the extent that he left his glorious throne in heaven, came to this world in form of man and suffered. They did all sorts to him and used NAIL to force out blood from his body JUST BECAUSE OF YOUR SINS.
For some years now, God has permitted you to spend some temporary time on earth (Remember many of your mates have gone). What has been your response to his incomparable sacrifice and invitation to salvation? Persisting in living a life of sin is being wicked to yourself because Jesus already died to save you from sin, which belongs to the devil (Romans 3:23. John 3:16).
It is wickedness to one’s self to reject this offer of salvation. This world has nothing good eternally to offer you. Only Jesus Christ can save you from sin in this world and release to you grace to obtain guarantee of eternal life in heaven.
The weight of your sin committed so far does not matter. Surrender your heart to him now. Make him your Lord and personal saviour. He will forgive you and cleanse you from your sins if you confess and forsake them (1st John 1:9).
What can you do to be saved? “That if thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved” (Romans 10:9).
Jesus says: “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). Why would you continue to struggle with sin and seek salvation outside Jesus Christ? He is a reliable invisible living being; not a mere imagination. Once you release your faith and encounter him, he gives you a new life (2nd Corinthians 5:17).
God says you should stop crucifying Jesus Christ a second time with your lifestyle of lying, cultism, cheating, sexual immorality, unforgiveness, covetousness and other forms of wickedness (Psalm 7:11). Repent! If you don’t repent now, the danger ahead is that there is a salary for sin (Romans 6:23). There is a judgment seat after life on earth (2nd Corinthians 5:10).
Today, Jesus Christ is still full of love and mercy, begging you not to be wicked to yourself or crucify him a second time (Revelation 3:20). Soon, he will move to judgment seat where his eyes will be full of fire and his entire countenance will be fiery (Daniel 7:9-10, Revelation 20:11-12). There will be judgment without mercy.
Stop seeking solution elsewhere, postponing your salvation. Only Jesus can save you. No Christ in your life, no hope of eternity in heaven. Accept him now by saying this prayer:
“Lord Jesus! I come to you as I am. I believe you died for my sins. Take over my heart. Wash me with your precious blood. I confess you Jesus as my Lord and saviour. Visit my case. Change my story. Thank you for taking over my life from today in Jesus name. Amen! Congratulations!
