Just a few thoughts on my mind......
It doesn't matter what religion you are.
It's not about what church you go to.
It makes no difference what race you are.
It matters not how old you are.
Salvation is of God. from God. in God. because of God.
Though it brings us freedom, it wasn't free.
It cost something.
It cost Someone.
It took sacrifice.
It took death.
It took the shedding of blood.
...for without the shedding of blood
there is no remission of sins.
~Hebrews 9:22, Matthew 26:28
It's all about the blood.
It's all about Calvary.
It's all about mercy flowing down that Old Rugged Tree.
It's all about grace.
It's all about sacrifice.
It's all about the blood of Jesus Christ!
Putting everything else aside, I have ONE question for you:
Are you washed in the blood?
In the soul-cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless?
Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Lay aside those garments that are stained with sin -
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb...
There's a fountain flowing for the soul unclean -
Oh! Be washed in the blood of the Lamb!
Whiter than snow! - yes! - Whiter than snow!
Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow!
"Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."
There's room at the cross for you!
Oh! There's room at the cross for you!
Though millions have come -
There's still room for one!
Yes, there's room at the cross for you!
I'm so thankful that there was room at the foot of my Savior's cross for me! No one is born a Christian. No one enters this world with a God-given right to go to Heaven when they die. Being raised in a moral, Christian home isn't enough. No one can do it for you. Being baptized as an infant when you nothing about what was being done means absolutely nothing.....
Listen friend, we're back at square one here: free will. It's our choice. It can't be forced on us. It can't be prayed on us. It can't be blessed on us. It can't be bought on us. Salvation is through the precious blood of Christ - shed 2,000 years ago on a hill called Mt. Calvary.....
~~ ONCE FOR ALL ~~
.....that the world through Him might be saved!
"For whosoever shall call upon the name
of the Lord shall be saved."
Not "might be" saved.
Not "hope so" saved.
Not "if I never sin again" saved.
Not "if I pay money to the church" saved.
Not "if the priest prays for me" saved.
It's not about other people.
It's not about what you can do.
It's about what Jesus did.
If you've trusted Christ as your Savior,
will you do me a favor....
Please, leave a comment under this post about when and how you asked Christ to be your Savior. I would love to hear your testimony. Then go tell someone else. The greatest gift you can give to someone is the directions to Heaven!
