Timeless Truths About Your Destiny (GLMX #476)
This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #476 titled, “Timeless Truths About Your Destiny” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.
What does time mean to you? Have you ever asked yourself “why am I here? what is my purpose for living? You may be living each day aimlessly, or pursuing your dreams. Each person is given the freedom to choose how to utilize their time. Time is a priceless commodity which, once it is lost, can never be retrieved.
When viewed against the vast reaches of time and the endless ages of eternity, our lives are incredibly short. The Bible says in James 4:14, “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away”. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone. The Bible states in Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die…” What time is it for you?
When your time is up, where will you spend eternity? Have you ever thought about that? It is a reality which draws nearer with every tick of the clock. Don’t let time—your life—slip by without answering this most important question. The Bible states in Hebrews 9:27–28, “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”
God loves you so much that He sent His Son Jesus Who entered time and came to earth as a man. Jesus lived a perfect life and then became the perfect sacrifice, shedding His blood for the cleansing of our sins. He died in our place, bearing God’s punishment instead of us, to provide the gift of eternal life with Him. On the third day He rose from the dead. The Bible states in Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”.
When it comes to washing away our sins and being made right with God, our religious efforts and good deeds are a waste of time and cannot get us to heaven.
Now is your time to turn to God to receive by faith the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Recognize that you are a sinner, ask Him to forgive you and accept His sacrifice on the cross on your behalf. God loves you and has a plan and purpose for your life. Place your trust in Him alone, turning away from trying to live your life in your own strength or putting your trust in another person. Jesus Christ said in 1 John 5:12,“ He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life”.
Jesus is knocking on the door of your heart. Will you let Him in? He desires to have a relationship with you. Jesus Christ said in Revelation 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with him”. Now is the time to open the door of your heart to receive Jesus.
This is a timely message of truth for you to realize your purpose and destiny, and to make the most important decision in your life—to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
If you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour in the free pardon of your sins. Allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Jesus Christ for your souls salvation from the power of sin and from the punishment of sin in that awful place called Hell. Please pray with me what is called the sinner’s prayer: Holy Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I admit that I have sinned against You and that I have broken Your Ten Commandments. I have lied before. I have stolen things before. I have lusted after people and things before. I have dishonored and disobeyed my parents. I have taken Your holy Name in vain. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please have mercy and grace upon my soul and forgive me of all of my sins, my failures, and my faults. As I now believe in Your Holy Son the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for my sins, was buried and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to repent of my sins past. Help me to turn from my old, evil life and follow You in the new life. For it is in Your Name I pray. Amen.
