100 Reasons You Must Be A Christian 13
by Olawale Ogunsola 3/22/2013 / Salvation
God in Heaven, I thank You for making it possible for me to come across this write-up. Help me through this piece.
Open my eyes to see the Truth that is presented to me in it. Give me the grace and courage to accept the Truth at the end of reading it. Amen.
Reason Thirty -six.
Simply The Best.
The best thing you can do is to belong to Christ. You may be confused either to be in the world and belong to it or be in the world and belong to Jesus.
When you are in this state of mind, it is better for you to choose Christ.
Apostle Paul states, "For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better."
Of all other alternatives you may be considering, the best is Jesus Christ.
"For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake"
Access To A Name Above Other Names.
It is possible that you have some names through which you get things you want in life. However, those names are lower, inferior and temporal.
Confess Jesus today as your Lord and Savior and you will have the only Name above other names.
"Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth."
It Is An Order.
That you must be a follower of and believer in Jesus Christ is a Divine order, you must obey.
Irrespective of where you place your faith now, you must accept, acknowledge and confess Him as your Lord.
"And that every tongue (including yours) should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father."
Dear reader, will you not obey your Maker?
Confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord.
One of the things desired by mankind is happiness. To get it, they have devised various means and methods. The sad aspect of that is: their happiness is never real or genuine. It does not last for long.
Do you want real and lasting happiness? Confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
Please, know and note this: "Happy is he who has the God of Jacob (through Jesus) for his help,
Whose hope is in the Lord his God.
Happy are the people whose God is the Lord!"
You'll Become The Apple of God's Eye.
The moment you know the Lord and accept Him as your Lord, you become not only HisChild but an apple of His eye. Be assured, "... For he who touches you touches the apple of His eye."
This is the best offer for you; why not accept it today and become a new person?
Hear the prayer of a song writer in Israel:
"Keep me as the apple of Your eye;
Hide me under the shadow of Your wings."
Note that he would not be able to pray with those words if he had not known 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 me the grace and mercy to follow You until I am counted worthy when You come again.
Thank You Jesus for saving me.
