Acts 16:31, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved.”
Countless action movies have “cliffhanger moments.” Inevitably, the main character, facing imminent death, has nowhere to turn when, suddenly, someone shows up just in time in a car or a helicopter and says, “Get in!” and the character lives to fight another day. Often, such storylines seem cliché and far-fetched. But, in reality, we all face spiritual cliffhangers. We are all sinners in need of a Savior to rescue us from our fear, dysfunction, and depravity.
One bad day, one impure thought is enough to separate us from a righteous and holy God. And there’s absolutely nothing we can do to span the gap between our side and God’s divine side. Knowing this, God made a way. He sent His only Son to step down through time and space to bridge this cosmic chasm. Jesus died on the cross for our sins and rose again, making it possible for us to enter into God’s holy presence. He is our “vehicle” to safety. Our only responsibility is to place our trust in Christ and accept Him as our personal Lord and Savior.
Have you surrendered to Jesus? Have you placed your trust in Him? It’s the best and most important decision you will ever make. Because, right now, Jesus is on the scene, offering you His nail-pierced hand and saying, “Get in! Believe in Me, and I will lead you to safety and take you places you never dreamed possible.”
Heavenly Father, Thank You for meeting me right where I am and sending Jesus to die on the cross for my sins. I place my trust in You and seek Your wisdom and discernment to be who You want me to be. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
