Can I tell you about a Jewish carpenter I know?
Yes. Jesus was a carpenter. But he’s not just that. Let me tell you something special.
He is the Name above all names. Lord of all. King of all kings. Messiah. Savior.
Naming it all would probably take us days to finish. Might as well, read the whole Bible.
Yet with hundreds of names and thousands of stories about who He is in different people’s life, I wanna highlight very important thing that a person should be able to know about Him.
Okay. I know that’s confusing, yeah? A mere carpenter but Lord of all? It might be insane!!! But hey, it’s an insane truth that makes us free!
The One who lives in Heaven came down with all humility to serve and to save.
Jesus is our Savior and Lord.
He came down to defeat the greatest problem of man: sin.
Because of sin, we are bound to be thrown to hell, and forever suffer the fiery place. Yet Jesus, the only Son of God, was sent to die to save us from the consequence of sin, and to defeat sin overall.
Okay. But why?
Because He loves you and me so so soooo much! And He hates sin soooo much, too!
Sin keeps us away from Him yet He desires for us to be with Him in heaven for eternity.
Ain’t that amazing?!
But the gift of redemption and freedom from sin would not take effect unless we receive it. And we receive it by believing on His finish work on the cross.
If you want to accept Jesus’ love demonstrated on the cross, if you want that redemption and freedom, if you want to receive eternal life in heaven with Jesus, you can pray this prayer with all your heart.
I thank you for the gift of life. I confess that I am a sinner and that I’ve done a lot of horrible things that are not pleasing to you. Indeed, I am in dire need of a savior and I cannot make it on my own without your help. This moment, I humbly accept Jesus as my savior. I believe that He died for my sins, He was buried and on the third day after, He rose again, confirming that He is Your Son. Thank You God for this salvation. Today, I ask for your help to make Jesus the center of my heart. Help me God change my heart so that I will be someone who you planned me to be.
This all I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
If you prayed that prayer heartily, I welcome you to the family of God!
The heavens is now celebrating your salvation, and God, together with the angels, (and including me!!!) are delighted with the greatest decision that you have made.
With this, I pray that you continue to seek Jesus in everything that you do, in every area of your life. I pray that you’ll be able to walk in the path that God has created for you and that you’ll find your identity from Him alone.
You are now a child of the most high God. And nothing can ever take that crown away from you.
