Jesus Knocks
Revelation 3:20 (NIV)
20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

Luke 12:36 GOD’S WORD® Translation (©1995)
Be like servants waiting to open the door at their master’s knock when he returns from a wedding.

Jesus knocks on each individuals door to your heart and gives us the opportunity to open the door and accept him in. He asks of us to have faith foremost and if we do, we receive from him free gifts
It is very simple and easy…..and on a lighter note we get dinner as well.

A Good Man

Read: Romans 3:10-18
By grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. —Ephesians 2:8
“Jerry was a good man,” the pastor said at Jerald Stevens’ memorial service. “He loved his family. He was faithful to his wife. He served his country in the armed services. He was an excellent dad and grandfather. He was a great friend.”
But then the pastor went on to tell the friends and family gathered that Jerry’s good life and good deeds were not enough to assure him a place in heaven. And that Jerry himself would have been the first to tell them that!
Jerry believed these words from the Bible: “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23) and “the wages of sin is death” (6:23). Jerry’s final and eternal destination in life’s journey was not determined by whether he lived a really good life but entirely by Jesus dying in his place to pay sin’s penalty. He believed that each of us must personally accept the free gift of God, which is “eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (6:23).
Jerry was a good man, but he could never be “good enough.” And neither can we. It is only by grace that we can be saved through faith. And that has absolutely nothing to do with our human efforts. “It is the gift of God” (Eph. 2:8).

“Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” (2 Cor. 9:15).
Christ’s work for my salvation is complete!
No work of mine can add to what He’s done;
I bow to worship at the Master’s feet,
And honor God the Father’s only Son. —Hess
We are not saved by good works, but by God’s work.

God sent his son so I could be saved, and forgiven. I was not worthy yet Jesus Christ died for my sins. He enabled me to receive power from on high. I am and will be eternally grateful.

    One of my favorite scriptures. To receive Christ into our hearts is the easiest thing to do, so much harder to run from him and be lost! Lovely work!

  • You are so right. Thanks so much.
