John 3:3 Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
🔴 CAN YOU HOLD IT!
Ever go to a store and see something that you think you want, but you are just unsure if it will fit in your home? Or maybe, you see a stunning garment and become reluctant to purchase it before shopping around? Or could it be you are indecisive and want more time to ponder?
Getting the clerk to hold the item for you seems to be a good idea until you hear, “I’m sorry store policy will not allow us to hold merchandise!”
Now What?! Do you feel pressured into making the purchase? But you are a quick thinker, so you ask, “What is the return policy?” Ah! You can return the item within thirty days with the original receipt.
Throughout life, we make decisions about whether to buy something now or to wait until later. The one thing we should never delay is the decision to believe and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Making that choice will determine where you will spend eternity and the blessings you will deny yourself of while one earth. The most regrettable would be depriving yourself of a relationship with God. To not accept Christ is to reject Him, and that is detrimental. If you have not already made Jesus, your choice now is a good time to do so. Ask Him to come into your heart and receive you into His kingdom of believers. It will be the best decision you have ever made!
