The Responsibility of Mankind to Decide
Romans 5:21 (NLT2) -"So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Before we leave today let’s go back 2000 years. It is a horrible day, three men on three crosses sentenced to die a horrible death. One man rails at the man in the middle, ”If you are the Messiah, why don’t you save yourself. Yet the other man,said to Jesus,” remember mewhen you come into your kingdom.”
And Jesus replied,” I assure you, today you will be with me in paradise.”
Every day , men and women, boys and girls either reject the Messiah, Jesus Christ or they accept Him. You have to decide that, too. Will you reject Him or accept Him.
Some of you say, but I prayed a prayer, I was baptized. But have you been born again. Are you a new creation in Christ? That my friends is the question.
