To whom do you belong?
“To whom do you belong?” 1 Samuel 30:13 NLT No neutrality can exist in religion. We either line up under the banner of Prince Immanuel, to serve Him and fight His battles, or we are slaves of the dark prince, Satan. “To whom do you belong?” Reader, let me help you respond. Have you been “born again”? If so, you belong to Christ. But without the new birth you cannot be His. In whom do you trust? Those who believe in Jesus are the children of God. Whose work are you doing? We always serve our master—the one we serve is shown to be our lord. What company do you keep? If you belong to Jesus, you will associate with those who wear the uniform of the cross. “Birds of a feather flock together,” it is said. What is your lifestyle? Is it heavenly, or is it earthly? What have you learned from your master? Apprentices learn much from the masters they serve. If you have invested your time with Jesus, it will be said of you, as it was of Peter and John, “they realized that they had been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13 NKJV). We ask the question again: “To whom do you belong?” Answer honestly before you allow yourself to sleep. If you are not Christ’s, you are in hard service—run away from your cruel master! Enter the service of the Lord of Love, and you will enjoy a blessed life. If you are Christ’s, let me advise you to do four things: You belong to Jesus, obey Him—let His word be your law, let His wish be your will. You belong to the Beloved, love Him—let your heart embrace Him, let your whole soul be filled with Him. You belong to the Son of God, trust Him—rest nowhere but in Him. You belong to the King of kings, decide always for Him. And so all will know to whom you belong.- C.H. Spurgeon Morning and Evening
My friend, settle this question before you take your next breath. Don't wait another minute. As quickly as you see this world change at the thought of a virus, you could find yourself still here awaiting the Judgment to come, written in the Bible, while those who are born again have left to be with Jesus Christ.
I implore you, think about what he said in that devotional. God had fixed a day when He is returning. Nobody's ever truly disproved the Bible. Satan has made it his mission to try. Know this very moment if you are a Child of God or not.
Really consider your future. Is any reason you have for denying your need to be saved really worth it? When the Judgments begin, billions are going to die. Then it gets worse. We aren't heading for utopia.
That's not said to scare you my dear reader. It's to get you to stop and consider the truth.
Google Roman's Road for Salvation. Know in this moment whether or not you will be going to Heaven. Start your relationship with Jesus today. He came to seek and save people such as you. Won't you let Him?
