The question on the floor has been, and will continue to be, “Are you Cute?” We explained that if you have accepted God’s free gift of salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ, then Yes, you are Cute… You are Covered Until The End! But what if you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? Then my next question to you is, “Do you want to become Cute?” If your answer to this question is yes, then get ready for a new life.
But some of you might be saying, “How can God ever forgive me? I’ve made so many mistakes in my life.”
No problem. God created you, and He knows all about you. He knows your past, your present, and your future. He knows all the wrong choices you have ever made and guess what… HE STILL LOVES YOU! In fact, there is nothing you can do to make God love you more or less than He already loves you. And no matter what anyone tells you, there are no righteous people.
“There is none righteous, not even one.”
There is nothing a person can do to earn or achieve a right standing before a Holy God. No matter how many “good deeds” you do, you can’t buy or earn forgiveness. Forgiveness and salvation are through grace alone.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves,
it is the gift of God; not as a result of works that no one should boast.”
~Ephesians 2: 8-9~
There is no one who is righteous before a Holy God. Nobody is pure, blameless, or holy. Nobody is perfect. We are all sinners. This simply means we have all missed the mark.
“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Every sin requires a penalty, and the penalty is death. The soul will be separated from the body resulting in physical death, and the soul will be eternally separated from God resulting in spiritual death.
“For the wages of sin is death…”
But there is hope. God loves us so much that He provided His Son, Jesus Christ to die on the cross and pay the penalty for our sins. He did for us what we could never do for ourselves. That’s why there is nothing you can do to save yourself. It has already been done for you.
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us in that while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.”
All you have to do is accept the free gift of eternal life in Jesus Christ. You must turn to Jesus Christ in faith, trusting Him alone and nothing else for your salvation. Notice the verse does not say you might, could, or there’s a good chance you will be saved. God’s word says you shall be saved. It doesn’t matter how you feel. Trust in Him, and take God at His word.
“that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved;
for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.”
Will you now accept God’s free gift of salvation and new life through His Son Jesus Christ? If your answer is yes, and I pray that it is, then pray a simple yet sincere prayer to the Father to express your need of a Savior. Trust in Jesus Christ, and make Him Lord in your life.
