29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! -John 1:29 NIV
Last night, as my son and I said our bed-time prayers, we were entreating the Lord for one of our loved ones, and one of my friends. They both were taught the things of Jesus, but have deliberately chosen to walk away from the Truth and go their own way.
As we prayed for them, my son stopped and said, “Your friend is more lost than ….. (our loved one!). At first, I agreed with him because of the things she now practices, but as I thought about that I retracted my statement. I explained to my son in this way…
“Say your home is right here ** ….and you are only one block away from it, but you’re walking in the dark, you can’t see, … you’re lost. Then, let’s suppose that your brother is five miles from the house; he’s walking in darkness as well and can’t find his way home either…he’s lost too. The point is this, You may be closer to home than him…but you are both still lost! Like the old song says, ‘Almost…but lost!’ ” When you’re speaking of Heaven- there is no “Almost.” You will either make it there, or you won’t. If you don’t KNOW Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, He will have no choice but to say “Depart from Me…I never knew you!”
I tell you this, because Jesus IS the Sacrificial Lamb of God! He IS the Way, He IS the Truth, He IS the Life, and you’ll never reach “home” unless you call on Him and repent of your sins!
Come to Him…call on Him! He’s waiting with arms open wide to receive you!
