“God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” 1st Corinthians 1:9.
Do you know there is already an invitation sent to you personally by the living God in heaven? Your invitation has not expired as of yet. Aren’t you glad it is not expired yet?
Listen Bible says, “God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” It is very hard for people to be 100% faithful. However, God is 100% faithful. The faithful and trustworthy God has called you into friendship and fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. It can’t more clear than this statement. God’s invitation is out there for you to come and get into a friendship with His Son, Jesus Christ.
This invitation is for all people everywhere. No distinction- Asians, Whites, blacks, brown and in between – all are offered this invitation.
The question is have you accepted the invitation?
The people of His day asked this question to Jesus. The question and answers are recorded in John 6:28-29. “So they asked him, “What can we do to do what God wants us to do?” Jesus answers, “What God wants you to do is to believe in the one He sent.” (GNT). The one God sent is His son Jesus Christ to bridge the gap between you and God. God took the first step to reconcile you with Him. And that step is Jesus Christ. This is the work you should be doing. Believe in Jesus Christ, Accept Him as you savior and Lord.
If you want to connect with God, this is the first and only step. Over the years I talked to many people who want to please God. However, no one can please God unless and until they took this first step of accepting His Son as your savior. Accepting means you agree that God sent Jesus to die in your place for all your sins and that He died and rose again in your place for your sins. You accept the blood of Jesus as the ransom for your sake.
Moreover, many young people said to me they want God’s will and live for God. However, the sad thing is if you haven’t met the first ‘want’ or ‘expectation’ of God, then how can you know the subsequent will of God and live for God. First thing first. Understand God has called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ. In these last days, God calls all people. He sent the invitation through TV, radio, the internet, magazines, and dozens of other ways. It does not matter where you live and what you have done in the past. Simply accept the invitation of God. There begins a new and wonderful journey with God because God has a wonderful and marvelous plan for your life when you come to Christ Jesus. Bible says the moment you invite Jesus into your life in prayer (which I help you in a moment), God quickens your dead spirit to become alive toward Him. The quickening of your spirit with almighty God and all He has begins upon your acceptance of His invitation.
Got a moment for today’s prayer? “Father in heaven, I accept your invitation to accept Your Son, Jesus Christ, as my savior and Lord. I believe Jesus died for all of my sins, then buried and rose again for my salvation. I am sorry for my sins. I repent and call upon the name of the only savior, Jesus Christ, God gave to humanity. Thank you for saving me. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.”
