“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”  (Romans 6:23 KJV)

My message is different than the world’s message; that is exactly what I want, because the truths clearly outlined in the Bible provide our guide—a plan showing us the path to heaven. The world seems to indicate that all good people will end up in heaven. What exactly defines good? How good is good enough? How many good things much we do to achieve heaven? How can we find peace when our thoughts our focused on being a good person, doing good things?

God’s Word is clear, our good deeds are nothing more than filthy rags (see Isaiah 64:6 Read here.) FILTHY RAGS! That realization should be sobering. On our own, we cannot be good enough to merit heaven. This is true for each and every person who is alive or who has ever lived; a hard truth to grasp.  

Therefore, I ask you: Have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior? If not, why not? What are you waiting for? God loves you deeply and desires nothing more than a relationship with you. God is waiting with open arms for you to come to Him. You can take comfort, because everyone has sinned (see Romans 3:23 Read here). Where will you be spending eternity?   

Sinners (and that’s all of us!) are worthy of death, as we can see in Romans 6:23 Read here. The only way we can be saved is by calling upon the name of the Lord (Romans 10:13 Read here).


Being Christian does have a cost, however, for those of us who believe and said “yes” to Jesus—the cost is more than worth it. As Christian, we shouldn’t expect wealth, health, and beds of ease; in fact, sometimes it is the exact opposite. Our relationships change, our activities change, our friendships change. Despite the cost, I believe it is worth the price I have paid and so do many others.

What are you waiting for? Jesus accepts us just as we are. Allowing Jesus to come into our hearts and lives changes us.  “Just as I am, Thou wilt receive, wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve; because Thy promise I believe, O Lamb of God, I come!  I come!” Listen to "Just as I Am"

Please join with me in prayer:

Dear Jesus, we come to you humbly admitting that we are sinners and that You died for us, to pay our penalties for our sins.  We need Your forgiveness and we turn from our sins.  We open our hearts to You and invite You to come in to our lives as our Savior and Lord.  Thank You, Jesus, for humbling Yourself to come to earth and live among us, die upon a cross for us and then rise again.  In Jesus’ Name we pray.  Amen. 

From My Heart to Yours,


P.S. Be looking for another post in the near future that will take another look at salvation.


  1. Amen, Kim, and again, I say, amen! Where would I be had I not accepted God's great and eternal love through His beloved Son, Jesus? A lost and troubled soul, victimized by this world and its false teachings.
