To begin with, I have a question for you to ponder. When was the last time you turned down an invitation? No matter what it was — you chose not to attend or accept it. I’m pretty sure, the answer to that question is a resounding yes. And how do I know that to be true? Because I have done so myself. Now, the invitation I’m talking about — if accepted, guarantees eternal life.
You are invited
It is possible, that you have never thought about where you will spend eternity. Or you don’t believe in life after death. Well, I must ask you this question if you are of the latter group. Are you willing to gamble with your eternity? Either way, if you are still reading this blog post, don’t let this moment pass you by. If you are willing to accept it — Jesus of Nazareth has extended the invitation for eternal life to you.
The invitation brings His rest
Earlier I asked if you have given any thought to the question of life after death. No doubt, there are those of you who have thought about it but the thought may even scare you. Heck, for that matter, life itself can sometimes be scary and or difficult. But, that my friends, is the beauty of the invitation Christ is offering.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
You see when you accept Christ’s invitation, He will give you, His rest. Furthermore, there is also a peace that comes along with His rest.
Peace brings comfort
Indeed, peace will bring comfort in knowing that no matter what happens in life–God will direct your path. Plus, you no longer have to be afraid of life after death. Why? Because when you accept Christ’s invitation you will be with Him. In other words, when you die, you will immediately go into the presence of the Lord–praise God. And that is good news.

Receive your Free Gift of Salvation – The Gospel of Jesus Christ
If you are reading this, it is not by chance. This is your time to receive the gift of salvation through Christ Jesus. Now, you may be wondering, “Why do I need that?” Oh, I’m so glad you asked. The Bible says, that because Adam ate fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil — he released sin into the world.
And ultimately, Adam’s sin brought death and death spread to everyone. No doubt, you may be thinking, “Of course, everyone is going to die.” But, my question to you is “Where will you spend eternity?” Because there is life after death. In fact, when you die you go to one of two places — heaven or hell.
Also, it is important to understand that, Adam’s sin also brought an eternity in hell. But for those who choose not to receive the free gift of eternal life. Thus, you must make that choice before you take your last breath.
Romans 5:17 New Living Translation says, “For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ.”
To sum it all up, Romans 6:23 New Living Translation says,
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.”
So, if you are reading this, don’t let another day go by without receiving this life-changing gift.
“8 …“The message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart.” And that message is the very message about faith that we preach:
9 If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.”
Lord Jesus, I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins. I ask You to forgive me. I want to follow You Jesus. Come into my heart, into my life, and be my Lord and Savior. I believe in my heart that God raised you from the dead. By faith I receive You, Jesus Christ, as my Lord and Savior.
