Have you come to put your full confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ? Do you understand that you have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God? Do you understand that two thousand years ago upon the cross, Jesus Christ was lifted up to die for sinners; that He died in the place of all those who will call upon Him; and that through His death and through the shedding of His blood, He has made the only atonement for our sins by which we may find full and free acceptance with God? Have you come to repent of your sins—to turn away from a life of independence and autonomy from God? Have you come to confess and acknowledge that you have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God? Have you come to commit your life and surrender your life to the King of Kings and to the Lord of Lords—this risen Christ? He is the Good Shepherd, and all of His sheep He will safely transport to heaven one day.

If you have never believed upon Jesus Christ, if you have never called upon His name, I urge you this moment, this very second, in your heart of hearts to turn to the Lord and say, “Lord Jesus, I am a sinner, but you are the friend of sinners. You have come to seek and to save that which is lost. Lord Jesus, receive me into your kingdom.” “Whoever comes to me,” Jesus said, “I will never cast out” (John 6:37). You will find a willing and loving Savior who will embrace you in His arms, bring you into His kingdom, clothe you with His perfect righteousness, and wash away all of your sins, who has prepared a place in heaven for you. No greater offer could ever be extended to any one of us here than the free offer of the gospel of Jesus Christ. For He has come to seek and to save that which is lost, and if you have never acknowledged that you’re lost and that you need to be saved, turn to Him this moment, and He will save you. He will save you forever. But if you do not, there is a day of dread that is coming, and it will be shocking in that day if you stand before Him without an advocate. You must settle out of court. You must settle this with Him today.
