Luke 12:34-40 (King James Version)
34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;
36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.
37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
Greetings, to all of our Subscribers, Family and Friend’s. We pray all is well in your lives, and we hope this blog post finds you prospering and in good health is my prayer!
As I awake on this morning, with a vital question on my mind… Will you be ready? Will you be ready when Jesus comes? It’s not a question we often ask ourselves on a daily basis; however, it is a great question that would lead you to get your house in order mentally and physically.
First step would be knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are saved. Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? It’s really simple, and I have enclosed the Romans road that will introduce you to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Responding to the Romans Road
Here’s how to take a personal journey down Romans Road:
- Admit you are a sinner.
- Understand that as a sinner, you deserve death.
- Believe Jesus Christ died on the cross to save you from sin and death.
- Repent by turning from your old life of sin to a new life in Christ.
- Receive, through faith in Jesus Christ, his free gift of salvation.
Romans Road of Salvation
- Everyone needs salvation because we have all sinned.Romans 3:10-12, and 23
As the Scriptures say, “No one is righteous—not even one. No one is truly wise; no one is seeking God. All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one.” … For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. (NLT)
- The price (or consequence) of sin is death.Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. (NLT)
- Jesus Christ died for our sins. He paid the price for our death.Romans 5:8
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (NLT)
- We receive salvation and eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ.Romans 10:9-10, and 13
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved … For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (NLT)
- Salvation through Jesus Christ brings us into a relationship of peace with God.Romans 5:1
Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. (NLT)Romans 8:1
So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. (NLT)
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (NLT)
A Prayer for Salvation:
Dear Lord, I admit that I am a sinner. I have done many things that don’t please you. I have lived my life for myself. I am sorry and I repent. I ask you to forgive me. I believe that you died on the cross for me, to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to you now and ask you to take control of my life, I give it to you. Help me to live every day in a way that pleases you. I love you, Lord, and I thank you that I will spend all eternity with you.
I pray something was said that touched your heart… Keep your lamps burning bright , and keep Jesus first in your life, so when Jesus comes, you will be ready! No matter what the world is doing, you be ready!!!!
