Good News for Everyone!
post date: June 23, 2013
God always intended to make a universal offer of salvation through the death and resurrection of his Son. The outpouring of the Spirit means the offer of salvation now goes to every person on earth. And remember that everyone means everyone. It includes those poor souls who live in the slums of Calcutta and Port-au-Prince, but it includes the super-rich whose lives we read about in the weekly tabloids. The cultured and the illiterate are both offered free salvation. The prostitute and the debutante can both be saved. It certainly includes those who are regarded as “odd” or “strange” or “eccentric” by the world. And it reaches out to take in the sick, the weak, the disabled, the discouraged, the hopeless, and even the dying. No one is excluded.
Do you want to go to heaven? You can! Just call on the name of the Lord. And how do you do that?
Believe in the God revealed in the Bible.
Believe in his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and rose from the dead.
Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior.
Cry out, “God, be merciful to me, a sinner, for Jesus’ sake.”
If you call upon the name of the Lord, you will be saved. This is God’s promise to you. But you must do the calling. Do not wait or hesitate or put it off. Make sure that you are going to heaven. If you cry out in Jesus’ name, you will be heard. God will not turn you away.
