Some may ask, “How is Christianity different from any of the other world religions?” Listen closely and let me ask those who ask this, “Are not all the religions of the world mankind’s attempt to appease his god or gods?” The Gospel however is Christ, the God of the universe descending into man’s mess to rescue and reconcile him to the Father.
Religion can only restrain immoral or evil behaviors at best, the Gospel and love of Christ can completely make a person new in his heart from the inside out. He believed in your worth and value before you could do anything for him. He bled and died for you before you ever could even want him.
1 Timothy2:4 who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all men–the testimony given in its proper time.
Dear nonbeliever, who ever you may be, Jesus loves you and has seen your immeasurable worth and does not have in mind a bunch of rules and laws you cannot follow, but he wants to give you a brand new heart so you can truly love and obey God as he really desires. If you see the Bible and it’s commands as a bunch of rules and lifestyles you are unable follow, believe it or not your in the right spot because you can’t obey God without a heart of love for him to begin with, so if you see your inadequate ability then that is actually the spot he needs you at. When we are forced to realize that we can’t do it and are stuck we have no where to look but upward. God loves you, trust him and cry out to him in faith and embrace the lover of your soul who gave his very life to save and restore you. Don’t let fear drive you from him who can heal you. No matter what your past has been or who are today. You are not damaged goods beyond repair. The Lord specializes in broken things like an antique dealer who delights in his priceless purchase. He saw your value and no matter how broken you are or feel, he loves you and can make you new and whole in Him. Will you call on him? If this spoke to you and want this and feel the desire to accept this, then you can always say a prayer like this, “Lord Jesus, I admit my need for your love and forgiveness for my sins, thank you for dying for me and loving me, please help me to love and follow God in a new way and experience His best laid plans for me. I trust you and surrender my life to you.”
Dear Friend, If you have never done this but have the desire to, let me rest your fears at ease, you won’t regret this decision. May God richly bless you.
