Change your mind

Deliverance from sin and evil can only come through salvation from Jesus Christ. It is the grace of God that brings salvation to all men.  The Blood of Jesus was shed at Calvary to set us free from our wicked ways. An invitation is extended to you to accept the free gift of Christ’s shed Blood by believing and repenting of your sins.  Just as man is destined to die once and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and He will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for Him.

There is no evil that you have done that the precious Blood of Jesus cannot cleanse. We read in the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 19 that the sinful tax collector, Zacchaeus was desperate to see repentanceJesus. He repented of his sins, repaid all he owed and he turned a new page to follow Christ.

Zacchaeus the Tax Collector (Luke 19: 1-9)

Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. He wanted to see who Jesus was, but because he was short he could not see over the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.

When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.”

But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.” Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”

Jesus did not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Today, if you are a sinner Jesus needs you. He is calling you. He wants to do you good. He wants to turn your situation around for the better. He wants to bring you out of your pit, He wants to turn your mess into a message. The Bible says if you hear His voice do not harden your heart, but come to repentance.

Come to Jesus, give Him your life today, come to Jesus, let Him have His way in your life. Every day we see that the world is in confusion and chaos and there is nothing that political leaders can do about it, unless there is a serious intervention by God.

It is time to stop placing your hope and confidence in man, they will fail you miserably at every step of the way. Learn to lean on Jesus, our only hope, our only deliverer and our only restorer. As we seek God’s face, let us cast all our cares upon Him for He cares for us. He is our burden bearer. He can handle anything that may come our way. He wants to set you free and make you whole again, if you would just let Him into your heart today. Let your soul find rest in God alone. For He alone is our rock and our salvation, He is our fortress and we will never be shaken.

If you do not know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, I encourage you to pray this prayer and be set free from your past guilt.

Father, I thank you for your Son Jesus Christ. I believe Jesus is Lord. I believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead. I confess that I am a sinner and I repent and ask your forgiveness of my sins. Make me clean and whole as I surrender my entire life to serve you, in Jesus name, Amen.
