Read the word.
Teach the word.
Preach the word.
- 1 Timothy 4:13
How much destruction could be avoided if all of us would simply recognize that Jesus is with us and that He loves us and wants to spare us from sin and the destruction that comes from sin?
It’s a sobering thought experiment, but consider that all of us are two decisions away from destruction—one decision to entertain temptation and the other decision to act upon that temptation, leading to the eventually and inevitable destruction that happens as a result of sin.
And yet, that destruction doesn’t have to happen. We don’t have to sin! We could simply recognize Jesus as Lord and Messiah, receive Jesus as Lord and Messiah, and follow Jesus as Lord and Messiah. And then, by following Him, loving Him, and obeying Him, sin (and the inevitable destruction that comes from sin) doesn’t have to happen.
Avoid the unnecessary destruction that comes from sin! Choose to recognize & receive Jesus as your Lord and as your Savior. Simply confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead. The Bible says that if you do this, you will be saved (Romans 10:9). Ask God for forgiveness. Believe that Jesus died for your sin and that God raised Him to life. Trust Him as your Savior and follow Him as the Lord and Savior of your life.
