Make Your Reservations Today !
By Marlys Norris, Christian Author
Whether it is a special ticket for an opera, a play, or football required to attend, it is gladly purchased. What-ever the price, it is paid! However when it comes to accepting the “free-gift” God provides -- man/woman hesitates and questions. Why? They are not familiar with the promises of God provided in His Holy Word, the Bible. And a commercial holiday has been made out of a sacred event God has provided through the death of His Beloved Son..
There is only one Way to heaven and Jesus is the Door through which every one of us must enter. Accepting His forgiveness and death and every ounce of His shed blood to wash us clean of our sins, provides deliverance and our Way to heaven. Jesus proved His deity that He IS the true Messiah for all of us by His death and Resurrection. No other religion on the face of the earth provides such as this! God does not lie and in Him is ALL Truth and Life. He gave us a simple answer to receive our Reservation for Heaven. Why do so many refuse to accept – rejecting and missing His free gift of eternal life..
God planned for His Son to be born a baby in human-form beginning and/or birthing His plan of redemption for every one of us. The future forthcoming special day, 30 plus years later, Jesus the “Holy and Perfect” Lamb of God, willingly paid the full sacrificial price for our redemption. Through Him we receive an invitation to gain a special reservation to enter into His heavenly kingdom by accepting His Son as the payment for every one of our sins and misdeeds.. You can do absolutely nothing to earn it. JESUS DID IT ALL!
Someday every knee shall bow and acknowledge that “Jesus is Lord.” May your eyes open today and your name be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. When you make Jesus Lord of your life - You become Jesus gift to the Heavenly Father. Imagine that - you receive God’s gift and then you become Jesus gift to the Father!
“Let this mind (thought) be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus; Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God; But made himself of no reputation and took upon him the form of servant and was made in the likeness of men; and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God (the Father) also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name; That at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:8-11)
Read John 17 and recognize Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the Father are ONE. They existed forever before the foundation of the earth. “For it is written, As I live, said the Lord, - one day - every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess - I AM - God. So then every one of us shall give an account of himself to God” (Romans 14:11-12) And the proof of God’s diety runs through the book of John. He says: “I AM the bread of life (John 6:35) “I AM the light of the world. (8:12) “Before Abraham was born, I AM.” (8:58) “I AM the good shepherd” (10:11) “I AM the Resurrection and the life” (11:25) “I AM the way and the truth and the life” (11:25) “I AM the true vine (15:1)
