Do you ever feel alone or restless in life? Like your life has no *specific* meaning or purpose? Like no-one really cares about you? Like something is missing in your life? Yet, you don’t quite know what the “something” is?

Or have you ever done something that you MAJORLY regret in your life and wish you could go back in time or start over again?

Maybe you were raised as a Christian but later turned away from the faith, as you got older. Maybe you know someone who is Christian and doesn’t seem to be living by Christian standards (going around saying things such as “God hates homosexuals”, etc) or maybe you’re just a person of “science” who doesn’t see or feel the NEED for God.

Maybe you’re addicted to alcohol, sex, attention/validation from others, money, food, fashion, TV/movies/popular culture or drugs. Maybe there was a most recent death in your family and you don’t know where to turn. Maybe you’re mad at God for the uncertain state of the economy or world chaos. Or maybe you blame God for everything going wrong in your life, in general.

Well, let me tell you something. Jesus Christ cares.

And for EACH person that calls out to Jesus’s heavenly name, he has a divine plan and purpose for each of our lives:

And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you” [Isaiah 46:4]

 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end” [Jeremiah 29:11]

Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honorable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life” [Isaiah 43:4]

The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee” [Jeremiah 31:3]

As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God” [1 Peter 4:10]

As an all-knowing, all-loving God…….

God knew each and every single one of us before we were born. He created us and he made us. And he understands what we’re going through, no matter what we’re facing in life. God made himself human in the form of Jesus Christ, not only so we would believe in him but so he could emphasize with “being human” [even though as both God AND Man, he was *perfect* and never sinned].

Jesus Christ (God in the flesh) was mocked, flogged/whipped, ridiculed, pierced in the side, crowned with a crown of thorns, spit on, forced to carry his own cross and then crucified. He died an *excruciatingly painful* death, in order to save mankind from God’s Wrath/unforgiveness of sins. He took the payment for sin upon Himself in order to give US (humanity) a way to “become clean” in God’s eyes and receive forgiveness of our sins and *everlasting life*. This is known as “Salvation”.

Jesus died for you and for me, and for every person in the world that has ever lived from Jesus’s time, up to the present time.

So when we pray to Jesus for forgiveness of ours sins and acknowledge to him that we are a sinner, basically what we’re doing is “accepting” Jesus’s *free gift of salvation/forgiveness of sins* into our minds, hearts, bodies and spirits and saying “thank-you Lord Jesus, for dying for my sins, as I am nothing but a sinner in need of Salvation”.

So when I say that Jesus Christ understands what you’re going through, you can TRULY believe that he knows what you’re going through, since he went through all of that [the beyond excruciatingly painful –both physically and emotionally— torchure and death], just to be able to save you and me and all of mankind from their sins/God’s wrath.

“For God so loved that world that he gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life” [John 3:16]

“For God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved” [John 3:17]

“He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the in the name of the only begotten Son of God [Jesus Christ]” {John 3:18}

So no matter what you’re facing in life (death of someone close to you, thoughts of depression/suicide, alcohol/drug addiction, severe persecution or “broken faith” as a Christian, an uncertain economic future, etc), call out to Jesus TODAY! Put your faith, trust and love in him!

He WILL have a solution to any problem in life that you’re facing right now, if you call out to him in prayer. He knows, He understands and He CARES!

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” [Hebrews 13:5]

So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me” [Hebrews 13:6]

If you put your faith, trust and love in the Lord Jesus [accept Jesus Christ into your heart as your personal Lord & Savior], pray for forgiveness of your sins, repent of your sins [that means, stop doing them], get baptized [FULL IMMERSION BAPTISM] in the name of Jesus Christ and CONTINUE following Jesus’s commands in the bible until the day you die, you will never have to face life alone or worry about the future ever, ever again! You will be able to rest with the peace and knowledge that you are “Saved” and that you’re going to spend eternity with God/Jesus Christ in eternal paradise, someday!!!!!

And if you don’t believe in Jesus Christ, then now is the time to *pray to believe*.

Say to Jesus: Lord, upon my uncertainty of your existence right now, please make yourself real to me. Please grant me the power to believe. Amen

And then read the Word of God in the New Testament, which commands us to pray for forgiveness of our sins, repent of our sins, accept Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior into our hearts and get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.

Jesus says in Mark 16:16 “He who believes & is baptized is Saved but he who does not believe will be condemned”. Meaning, that the ONLY unforgiveable sin there is, is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of *Truth* and it is rewarded to/freely given to all those who believe in Jesus Christ, get baptized in his name, pray for forgiveness of their sins, REPENT (that means, give up) their sins and submit their very LIVES to him by living a life that is pleasing to God/Jesus Christ.

And sadly, Revelation 20:15 (book of Revelation, chapter 20, verse 15, at the very end of the New Testament) gives us a VERY CLEAR PICTURE of all those whom DON’T put their faith, trust, love & obedience into Jesus Christ:

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire

So just imagine this for a moment……..Everything from the Earth, on the Earth has COMPLETELY passed away……..and you’re standing before the righteous Judgement Seat of JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY! Man……you never believed in him BEFORE……but BOY, you sure do, NOW! He’s separating all the people that ever lived on the Earth into TWO groups……One LARGE group of people on his LEFT side………and a very SMALL group of people on his RIGHT side………

You immediately look over to your large “group” on the LEFT side of Jesus and laugh a bit of relief, thinking that YOUR side must be the “redeemed side” and that the “small” side on Jesus’s RIGHT side must be the “condemned side”. You wait in nervous anticipation……..only to hear Jesus say FIRST to the VERY small group on his RIGHT side, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” [Matthew 25:34b]

And then YOU PANIC…….as you THEN come to FULLY realize………YOU ARE ON THE “CONDEMNED SIDE” OF THE LORD!

And then, just about as your soul’s heart is about to stop, he then turns to YOUR “large group” on the left side of him and says, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels! [Matthew 25:41b] 

And then, as you and all the others are being led to the flames, you SCREAM in agony at Jesus saying, JESUS! I WAS WRONG! I WAS WRONG! LET ME INTO YOUR KINGDOM! LET ME INTO YOUR KINGDOM! LET ME INTO YOUR KINGDOM, PLEASE! I BBEEGGG OFFFF YYYOOUUU! but by THEN, it’ll be too late……..

For WHILE you were still living on the Earth, you sealed your fate by DENYING JESUS! [And please know that denying Jesus doesn’t JUST have to be a form of VERBAL DENIAL……..it can also be a LIFESTYLE DENIAL, as well. For example, those who “claim” they love Jesus but yet, don’t follow his commands in the bible! They are likened onto “Jesus deniers!”]
