Again, when the scripture says in Isaiah 45:22 “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth:” it reveals that the call of God is for all and sundry; and it is without discrimination, partiality and exception.
Hence, God wants you to take full advantage of His offer of salvation so that you would be saved from sin, and from the punitive measures sin attracts upon all those who fancy to take the side of disobedience against the commands of God.
As you tag along with God, you will begin to experience a new life in God, and the power to live this kind of abundant life will become part of your character, which has it’s genetic origin from heaven. Through this process, the provision of eternal life will also become your portion.
Isaiah 53:4-6 “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
Because of your transgressions and sins, Jesus died on the cross of Calvary. That is why, today, He has decided that He will take away the guilt sin has deposited in your life. He wants to take away the problems sin has left behind, which are now tormenting you. He is also willing to take away the condemnation sin has brought into your heart as well as the divine judgment sin has attracted upon your life.
Jesus wants to show you mercy and forgiveness. He wants to give you the joy of salvation and turn your life around in the right direction. He is offering peace and rest of mind too, which comes with salvation. He is willingly ready to write your name in the book of life right there in heaven. You will have the complete pack-age, today. I said, He will do it in your life in Jesus name.
No matter your condition and spiritual state of health, the presence of the Lord will reinvigorate and revitalize you, because God has made available the provision that will match the promise earlier declared. That provision is the favour and goodness of God that is free for everyone to enjoy. It is also called grace.
The provision of the grace of God is an all expense paid glorious package made possible through the death of Jesus Christ at the cross. When something is by grace, it means that the required payment had been made for you and you do not need to do a second payment or perform any special act to obtain the salvation that comes from God.
You do not need to climb any mountain nor travel to the city of Jerusalem before you can receive what is free. You do not need to labour, struggle and suffer to get salvation, which has been made free for you. This is because the provision of salvation is by grace; the provision of forgiveness from sin is by grace and the provision of healing and deliverance is by grace; and today, because of this purpose, you will be totally freed by grace in Jesus name.
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
You must take into cognizance the indisputable fact that nobody can go to God by merit. Before God, no sinner – whether rich or poor, literate or illiterate, healthy or sick, young or old, – of any calibre, is good and righteous. A sinner can only obtain the pass mark, in the eyes of God, when such a person has been bathed in the blood of Jesus. That is what brings true fulfilment in life.
Romans 3:24 “Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:” The instant you experience forgiveness (justification) for sins committed, your whole being will be acquainted with peace of mind, and you can activate it today. You can have it right now. I said, it is yours in Jesus name.
Everything that is contained in that salvation is free. Everything that comes with salvation is a package. It is a glorious package money and man cannot afford. It takes the act of a generous God for you to have a feel of it. This great gift is for the high and lowly. It is for all gender. It is for you!
Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
You do not need to turn over a new leaf of life, thinking you could please God as a result; and you cannot make it by your own personal effort. But the death of Christ will count in your life, this very day, because it will bring redemption into your life and forgiveness. The awesome thing about the forgiveness of God is that, when He forgives you, He will wipe away the remembrance of the sins you have ever committed in the hard drive of heaven. Thereafter, He will give you other blessings reserved for you in heaven.
Romans 8:32 “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”
For your sake God offered His own Son as a sacrificial lamb so that you will obtain salvation and gain access to His glorious kingdom of heaven. You should be proud that God has included you in His wonderful plan of salvation.
