BECAUSE OF JESUS
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
John 10:10 KJV
My birthday was last month on July 7 but because of Jesus I have another birthday, a spiritual birthday. I was born again into God’s family on August 14, 1980. I will be 37 years old spiritually in 6 days. It is because Jesus loves us so much that we can be born again into God’s family.
Do you have a spiritual birthday? If you have never given your heart to Jesus, I urge you to do it today before it is too late. Your family and friends can’t do it for you as much as they want to do it. Salvation is personal between Jesus and you. Will you give your heart to Jesus? He is waiting for you.
You may have invited Him into your heart, but are you serving Him? He doesn’t call everyone to go to another country to be a missionary but He does call everyone to serve Him right where we are. To serve Him, we will have to shut off the television, get out of our comfort zones and tell everyone Jesus loves them.
Jesus left His Father, His home and all that He had to come to earth to die on the cross so we may have the privilege of being saved through His redeeming blood and live with Him in Heaven for all eternity. Thank God for our compassionate redeeming Saviour! What a privilege is ours to be loved by Jesus.
Heavenly Father, I pray for every person who has never said yes to Jesus. May today be the day they invite Him into their heart. Please help us to put Jesus first in our life and to serve Him with all our heart. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
