Who Can and When Should We Accept Christ?

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. – John 3:16

Is there a certain time in which a person can become saved?  Yes, right now!  This very minute you can accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.  You don’t have to wait to go to church on Sunday or wait to get someone’s approval or wait for a special time of year.  No, if you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior I implore you to do so right now.  You may not have until Sunday or you may not make it in time to see that person you would want approval from or you may die before that special time of year rolls around.  

Dying without having accepted Jesus Christ is the worst thing a person can do.  Society would have us believe that good people go to Heaven and bad people go to Hell, but on the contrary, I bet there are plenty of “good” people in Hell if they have not accepted Jesus.  

It is written in John chapter 3 verse 16 that God gave his only Son [Jesus Christ] so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.  It is also stated in Romans chapter 10, verse 13 that all who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.

God sent Jesus into the world to be a sacrifice for the sins of everyone. It’s not limited by race or gender or if we have done only good things or only for those that are deep in the word of God. Being saved through Christ is not something hidden away for a select few, but instead, God wants salvation to be available to all people. It doesn’t matter how bad you think you have sinned or whatever bad you have done as long as you are living you can accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and I encourage you to do so.

If you are reading this and want to accept Christ but don’t know how in Romans 10:9.  the Bible explains that it’s really simple to accept Christ: If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  

Are you ready to accept Christ into your heart? Do it today!
