I want to ask you the most important question you’ll ever be asked, sweet friend. If you were to take your final breath right now in this very moment where will you spend eternity? Does that question scare you? If it does that’s a good thing because it should! The scripture I have listed below brings a born-again follower of Jesus Christ unfathomable peace when you have eternity at stake doesn’t it?
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17
Eternity at Stake: Heaven or Hell?
When the prompting of the Holy Spirit convicts you to turn away from your sins and surrender your life to Christ it can be somewhat scary. Many have the misconceived idea that you have to get your “act together” before committing to follow Jesus.
Rejecting Jesus: Your Eternity at Stake
For those who have rejected Jesus, peace will be the last thing they’ll feel. In all honesty, when I think of the eternity that’s waiting for non-believers if they do not accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior grieve my soul and spirit, and I’m overwhelmed with dread.
Surrendering to Jesus
Can I ask what’s holding you back from accepting the FREE gift of salvation? Possibly you are an atheist and do not believe in God at all? Oh, friend, I can’t fathom how you can deny the very existence of God? Look around and you’ll see God’s hand in everything ever created! What happens when your belief in God is questioned? What can you say to an atheist who doesn’t believe in Heaven or Hell for salvation?

Come As You Are
Wanna know a little secret? God loves YOU just as YOU are faults and all. Nothing more…Nothing less. To put it another way, if you’re waiting for perfection in your life before committing to God you’re gonna be waiting a very long time! Not only this, as I stated, in the beginning, there’s no such thing as having your life “in order” because apart from Jesus Christ it’s not gonna happen!! You have Eternity is at stake to prepare for!
Conviction of the Holy Spirit
When I first felt that tug to turn to Christ I ran like a frightened kitten. God gently pursued and I shoved. I didn’t want to give my life up. Especially to someone, I felt would dictate my life. You know what I mean it’s probably the same thoughts that go through all Sinner’s mind. You can do this but you can’t do that. Following this Jesus is going to make my life boring. It”s going to be like a dictatorship.
Keeping it real here. Once I decided to accept Christ I can remember saying “Lord, why did I wait so long!” It was the best decision that I have EVER made and I sincerely regret taking so long to come to my senses!
Friends, I know what the next thoughts will be that will plague your mind. Angie, you don’t know what I have done in my life or the kind of person I am. There’s no way God will accept me. All the bad decisions, poor choices, and wrongs in my life I’ve done…Jesus could never forgive or accept me.
Oh, sweet friend, I’m gonna tell ya right now that is a lie coming straight from the pit of Hell!! Satan will do everything within his power to keep you from surrendering your life to Christ. Satan is the father of lies and a deceiver so PLEASE do not listen to those nontruths! He will play mind games with you and bring up everything you have EVER felt guilt for. But I’m here to speak truth yo you. It doesn’t matter what you have done Jesus will welcome you with wide-open arms.
Struggles in Life You May Feel is Unforgivable
- Drug or alcohol addiction
- Committed adultery
The list can go on and on.
Proof of Unconditional Love
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
To my knowledge, the only unforgivable sin is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. The following scripture provides the truth of this fact.
Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven people, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come. Though I am now saved, by God’s grace alone, I am still a sinner, in need of God’s grace, on a daily basis. Matthew 12:31-32
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
Not Good Enough
Now, at this point, you’re probably thinking I’m not good enough. Newsflash for you…Neither am I! No one is. We ALL for short on a daily basis. However, we are justified by grace and accepted by God through the redemption of Christ’s bloodshed on the Roman rugged cross and that’s the good news of the gospel!
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption, that is in Christ Jesus. Romans 3:23-24
Jesus Christ is Perfection
The ONLY perfect being is Jesus Christ himself.
Not a single person created EVER will be, this side of Eternity. This is due to the fall of Adam and Eve. That is when Sin came to be. God didn’t intend for our world to be the way it has turned out. I’m telling you about God’s saving grace now before it is too late for you to do anything about it. Truthfully speaking, not one of us is promised our next breath let alone tomorrow.

Dear God, I believe that out of your infinite love for me you created me. I have sinned against you and I repent of every one of my sins. Please Forgive Me!
