100 Reasons You Must Be A Christian 12
by Olawale Ogunsola
3/08/2013 / Salvation
God in Heaven, I thank you for making it possible for of to come across this write-up.
Open my eyes to see the Truth that is presented to of in it.
Give me the grace and courage to accept the Truth at the end of reading it. Amen.
You Will Have Access to A Covenant Keeping God.
It is only on your coming to Jesus Christ that you will know the importance of God in your life and declare like an ancient king in Israel, Solomon,
"...there is no God in heaven above or on earth below like You, who keep Your covenant and mercy with Your servants who walk before You with all their hearts."
No other god keeps covenant as the living God. You need to know and walk with Him through Jesus.
Favor Of God.
Do you want favor from God and man? You must accept Christ first. The reason behind your lack of favor is that you are not yet in Christ by walking in His laws.
The scriptures read thus,
"...Because your fathers have forsaken Me,' says the Lord; 'they have walked after other gods and have served them and worshiped them, and have forsaken Me and not kept My law.
And you have done worse than your fathers, for behold, each one follows the dictates of his own evil heart, so that no one listen to Me. Therefore I will cast you out of this land into a land that you do not know, neither you nor your fathers; and there you shall serve other gods day and might, where I will not show you favor.'
If you become a christian, you'll know what to do to get favor.
The scriptures instruct you: "Let not mercy and truth forsake you,
Bind them around your neck.
Write them on the table of your heart.
And so find favor and high esteem
In the sight of God and man."
A Merciful God.
If you become a Christian, you have unrestricted access to the only God who is full of mercy. You cannot receive such mercy anywhere else.
"The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.
The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and great in mercy."
Why do you have to follow other merciless gods? Today, declare the merciful Lord as your Savior.
Right and Durable Riches.
Except the Lord Jesus Christ, no other Lord can give the right and durable riches. You must accept Him to enjoy the riches.
The scriptures assures, "As a partridge that broods but does not hatch,
So is he who gets riches, but not by right;
It will leave him in the midst of his days,
And at his end he will be a fool."
However, the Lord says, "Riches and honors are with me,
Enduring riches and righteousness."
You'll Have The Fountain of Living Waters.
Dear Reader, why should you leave the Living Lord? He is the Fountainof the Living Waters.
What will happen to anyone who forsake Him?
"O Lord, the hope of Israel,
All who forsake You shall be ashamed."
"Those who depart from Me
Shall be written in the earth,
Because they have forsaken the Lord,"
If you forsake the living Lord, you will surely seek an inferior alternative that will wound you.
Be wise and be safe, follow the Lord!
Do you know (think) of any other alternative to these? It is of falsehood!
Have you sincerely read those reasons? Do you believe them indeed?
Heavenly Father, I thank you for the grace, power and courage that you have given me to read this piece.
I have now known the Truth, let the Truth set me free totally and eternally in Jesus' Name.
Lord Jesus Christ, thank You for your death for my sins.
I confess that you died for me and You have risen unto glory.
I confess You as my Lord and Savior. Give of the grace and mercy to follow You until I am counted worthy when You come again.
Thank You Jesus for saving me.
