Rev 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.”
When I have my prayer time with God, I will usually have prayer request from people with various needs. These needs can range from health concerns, to financial concerns, to family-related issues. I praise God when I hear that these request have been answered. And, oftentimes, I can think that the longer I pray, the more God will hear and answer my prayer for them. (Totally not true, by the way!)
While it is important for me to place these prayer request before God, my biggest prayer is for the salvation of all the people that I pray for.
For example, I am in constant prayer for the salvation of my family. While some have not made that decision as yet, I know that the Lord has heard my prayer. (1 John 5:14-15). And I know that he is diligently presenting himself before my family members to offer his free gift of salvation. Rev. 3:20 says “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.”
The question then is not whether God answers our prayers or not. Nor, is it a question of whether God wants us saved or not. (John 3:16) But, it is a question of whether we are willing to submit our lives to Jesus Christ and follow his ways rather than our own.
Many people ask, “Why Christianity?” or they make excuses like ” I have to make myself right (on my own terms) before I can get saved.” But, we have to remember that nobody can experience God for us. We have to be in a committed relationship with Christ in order to know his goodness and grace. Our call to action is to surrender everything to a loving God who cares more for us than we could ever ask or imagine. (Jeremiah 31:3; Ephesians 3:20).
As Christians we believe in a God who wants only the best for us (Jeremiah 29:11). And who personally sacrificed everything (including his only Son) so that we could be free from a life of sin and death.
So, while I continue to prayer for my family and friends salvation, I will also pray for those who read this message.
If you want to accept Jesus Christ into your heart today and be forgiven of your sins, you can say a prayer like this:
“Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.”
If you have made that decision then Congratulations! You are now a child of living God! I promise it is the best decision you will ever make. To find out more about your faith go to HERE
