This is the time; no more delay
This is the Lord’s accepted day;
Come in, this moment, at His call,
And live for Him who died for all.
– MHB 323 (stanza 5) –
Jesus Calls Out to You Right Now, Come!
Jesus is calling out to each and everyone to come. It doesn’t matter where you think you are right now or whether you deserve His love or not. What matters most is that He is calling to you right now. He said, “Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
Don’t think you are not worthy. Yes, it’s true you are not and you will be found guilty if God judges you today. However, if you will be free from any guilt of sin, then you need Jesus Christ. It is Jesus Christ that can set you free and present you blameless and spotless before God.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised… Luke 4:18
Who are you? And what is your crime? Jesus is able to wash you clean and present you blameless before the Father. We are all struggling to make it into God’s good book, but have failed as men to get to Him. We tried our methods and created religion, yet that could not put us right with God or bring us the fulfillment and peace we crave for. But the Good News we have is that Jesus Christ came down from Heaven to earth to show us the way to the Father.
Christ Died for You
I passed on to you what I received, which is of the greatest importance: that Christ died for our sins, as written in the Scriptures; 4 that he was buried and that he was raised to life three days later, as written in the Scriptures; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
So if you will believe in what He has done for you, taking the punishment for our sin and laying it on the cross, dying for our sins and rising again from the dead to make all who believe in what He has done children of God.
Because of our sins he was given over to die, and he was raised to life in order to put us right with God. Romans 4:25
As the scripture says, “Everyone who calls out to the Lord for help will be saved.” (Romans 10:13), therefore, if only you will believe, Call on Him and He will save you.
The time is now!
