Jesus to the Rescue!!

What would you do if...You were out on the lake fishing enjoying the afternoon, when suddenly you notice a short distance away from you, a young man in the water, no lifejacket and he is fighting to stay afloat. Without help, he will most certainly drown. You have taken a lifesaving course at an earlier time in your life so you know what to do. You have an extra life jacket with you in the boat. What do you do?  There is no doubt that each of us would do whatever we could to get that young man safely to shore and get him the medical help needed.
Or..  if  the weather channel was forcasting  a bad weather event such as maybe a tornado or hurricane, would we not do what we could to help people around us prepare and help get them to a safe shelter before the storm hit?
So also it only is common sense that as  Christians, we would want to share the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ with people before it is too late. We want to reach the drowning man and get him to Jesus before it is too late. We want to reach the people facing the storms of life with the gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ before it is too late. It is a matter of life and death! An urgent matter of soul salvation.
 We know that the decision for Christ must be made here in this life on earth. Once a person passes through death and into eternity, there is no longer any chance to repent of sin and be saved. If we have turned from our sin and accepted Christ Jesus as our Savior here in this life, then we will be eternally saved. But if a person rejects Christ and his offer of forgiveness here on earth, there will be no opportunity to do so after a person has passed through the door of death.
Perhaps some one reading this may be thinking - 'I am that person caught in the water or in the storm of life and unsure of my eternal destination'. - You may be unsure where you would be right now if you had died today.  Then I would like to encourage you to take the time now to reach out to Jesus as He is reaching out to you right now. Get to safety in Jesus before it is forever too late.

God loves you and sent His Son Jesus to die in your place to free you from the penalty of sin.
John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Sin separates you from God.  We have all sinned, We have all chosen to sin and  need to be saved through Jesus.
Romans 3:23 -For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

We cannot get to God on our own - by doing good works or by trying to be good people. God has provided the only way and that is through faith in Jesus finished work on the cross.
John 14:6 -Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Confess all known sin to God, turn from it and ask Jesus to come into your heart and life to be your personal Savior and Lord.
Romans 10:9 -That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
1 John 1:9 -If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

There is no other way to be saved, to have assurance of eternal life with God in Heaven. Jesus is the only way!
Acts 4:12 -Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

1 Corinthians 15: 3-4 -For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

I urge you to pray and receive Christ today!

Heavenly Father, save those who are seeking You. Save them Father before it is too late. In Jesus Name, I ask, Amen
