Is Christ Calling You?

 

To find out if Christ is calling you, I would first like to ask you a very important question:

 


If you died tonight and stood before God and He asked you

 

question

 

what would you say?



If you don't have a confident answer to that question, please read the Scriptures below.

 

It is important for you to know that the Bible makes it clear that "man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment" (Hebrews 9:27). Therefore, karma and reincarnation are completely false. You have one life to live and after that you will stand alone before God at the Judgment.

 

Scripture also says that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23) and “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23). This means that all of us have sinned in our life. Jesus said lusting in your heart is the same as committing physical adultery (Matthew 5:27-28) and hating someone in your heart is the same as murdering someone (Matthew 5:21-22)!

Therefore, on the basis of God’s Law (the Ten Commandments) we are all guilty and just like those guilty in courtrooms on earth deserve to be punished so do we deserve punishment in the next life. This punishment that we all deserve is called Hell and Jesus Himself portrays it as a place “where the fire never goes out” (Mark 9:43).

However, there is Great News because “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
We are also told that “God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
Therefore, “if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved…for, ‘Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved’” (Romans 10:9-10, 13).

 


Scripture makes clear that Christ is calling you, in fact, calling you right now.

There may not be a tomorrow for you. Jesus has called men and women through the ages with two simple words “Follow me!” (John 21:19).

If you would like to trust Jesus Christ right now as your Savior and Lord, then, if you can, get on your knees and pray a prayer like this: “Lord Jesus, I am a sinner.  I have offended you by my sin.  Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins and rising again from the dead.  Thank you for giving me your Holy Spirit.  Help me to serve you by reading the Bible and praying and to persevere until the end.  In the name of Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.”
