"“Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going.” John 14
It was more than enough that Jesus arose from the dead, He had already conquered sin and death. He had fully obeyed the Father. Salvation had come. His Disciples were now Apostles.
In the midst of that...a gentle reminder that He will be back. The Father's Plan was in motion. The powers of Hell and Darkness would not overcome the power of God through the Holy Spirit's work.
Today means oh so much. Today we celebrate the greatest event of history. Today we praise God for what the Son has done.
Unfortunately if you are still rejecting Jesus, if you are still fighting the call to come to Christ and be saved, then this day means nothing for you. Why would you celebrate something Jesus has done if you have never put your faith in His shed blood? This day of all days I ask you to reconsider. To let go of the lies holding you back. Let go of the idea that you need to get your act together before you come to Christ. You see, God only takes imperfect people. He takes all who would come just as they are. It matters not what's in your past. It's your future that Jesus is ready to give you. A future and a hope. When is the last time you really had hope? It's free when you come to Jesus.
Run, don't walk. The invitation is for a limited time. As John 14 says He will be coming again. Make today your new Birthday.
