Matthew 24:14-And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. (NIV)
This verse shows why it is so important to share the good news about Jesus to all people because we are living in the last days. God has called us to be His Disciples and reach every nation, every tongue, and every tribe. So all will be without excuse because they have heard about Jesus and the sacrifice He made to give us eternal life. Make no mistake we are living in the last days. No one knows when Jesus will return so we must always be prepared. Looking to the east for His return on the clouds of glory coming to save His people. Jesus said that before He returns, the Good News about the Kingdom (the message of salvation) would be preached throughout the world. Jesus talked about end times and final judgment to show His followers the urgency of spreading the Good News of salvation to everyone. I don’t say all this to scare you, but we have been called to spread the message of salvation so that people with be saved and spend eternity in heaven, not in hell. Forever is a long time and when the end comes because Jesus comes back for His people or we pass away before His return. From that moment on forever begins and forever has no end. We will either spend it in heaven or hell. Do you know where you would go if today were the end? What about your loved ones, do you have any idea where they would go? How are you living in these last days?
A Prayer of Salvation: Dear Heavenly Father, I recognize that I am a sinner and have fallen short of your glory, please forgive me of my sins. Jesus, I believe that you died on the cross for my sins, were put in a grave, and rose from that grave so I could have eternal life and spend forever with you. Today I surrender my life to you and ask you to be the Lord and Savior of my life in Jesus name, Amen.
If you have prayed this prayer today with a sincere and surrendered heart, you are a child of God, and I want to welcome you into the family of God!! Now that our lives have been transformed by the surrendering of our heart, we must share the Good News with others that need to receive it as well.
