Embrace


Everyone must individually embrace your faith as your own. You have to take that step of faith to receive Christ. It’s not in accepting a bunch of religious rules but entering in to relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
 Matthew 7:21-23 Jesus tells us;  “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.  Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’  Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
The path to God through Christ is clear. Romans 10:8-13 guides us; “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,  that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.  As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”  For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him,  for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Call on Jesus. Amen?
