FOR THE GOLD
Run the race so as to win
Did you ever pass something by, that later on you missed? We all have.
All of us have left boxes unwrapped in our lives, that should have been opened
something we should have checked out, given a second try taken another look.
Well, all that can
change. Because today you can right all that.
Today you can be good to yourself, and receive the package of Salvation open it, and say
"Yes" to life --- Eternal Life.
You need not pass yourself by anymore.
The One who loves you, more than anyone else, is hoping you'll accept His invitation to share a future much better than this world has to offer.
A TRUE FRIEND
Let Jesus Christ be your Counselor and Friend.
Step aside, and tell Him all of your hurts, mistakes, faults and yes, sins.
That's right .spill it all off your shoulders.
Carrying the past becomes a burden.
Jesus once walked this earth and felt all those heartaches too. He took all the bittersweet of life, and all of our sins and nailed them to a Cross with His body. His heart gave out and finally He died.
Death by Love--that special love He has for you.
Do you know how He was able to bear all that pain? ..the thought of you.
Jesus pictured you in all your struggles of life and wagered that His death would mean enough to you to make it through your life with His help.
As hard as it is to believe, He would have died for your Salvation even if you were the only one in the world.
And now He is no longer in the tomb.
He was raised to life again and is alive right now, pleading on your behalf before the throne of God His Father. He is your Advocate , opposing Satan's lies everytime he makes accusations against you.
ONE OF A KIND
Jesus knows how unique you are (He created you). You're very special --one of a kind.
There is no one else like you you're the only one.
No one else has your personality, abilities or characteristics no one.
And because you are uniquely His creation, He went all the way for you .
He gave His life for your life.
He could do that because He won the only Gold medal in the Human Race, without breaking the rules. He won by dying, so that you could live by His Righteousness. We can never measure up on our own, but we can share under His victory banner, by trusting in Him alone to save us.
If you'll run the Race of Life with Him, He has a Gold medal for you too. You simply run in His name and receive His reward. Don't hang back with the pack.
Sprint forward now. Run with the Winner.
Lay down those heavy sins, confess them, and break free.
"If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us" 1 JOHN 1: 9
He is worthy, because He was slain,
and has redeemed us to God by His blood. Revelation / Apocalypse 5:9
Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sins Hebrews 9:22
100 % commitment unto death, with no turning back.
" Greater love than this no man hath than to lay down His life for His friends." John 15:13
Why not "draw near unto God? and He will draw near unto you." James 4:8
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for dying for me.
I confess that I am a sinner. Please forgive me of my sins.
I want to run the rest of the way with you.
Please come into my life. Take my past and give me hope for the future.
Let your love mean more to me than all this world. With your help I will live for you .
May You welcome me home someday into your beautiful and everlasting kingdom, when I cross over that Finish line. Amen.
Run the race so as to win .. I Corinthians 9: 24--27
" Ride on, ride on! Rough-shod if need be;
Smooth-shod if that will do, but ride on!
Ride on over all obstacles, and Win The Race!"
WHY NOT ?
This would be a good time to read the Book of Romans and the Gospel of JOHN.
May God go with you on your journey.
Born in Bondage choosing Freedom in Jesus Christ .Now Living Free
He whom the Son sets free is free indeed John 8: 36

Having heard the Gospel and believing that Jesus is God, nothing more need be said.
