August 11th 2016 – God the Father is Patient.

“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)

We’ve all made promises that for one reason or another, we were unable to keep. We’ve also been at the receiving end of a broken promise. We have all felt the damage of an untrustworthy person or from someone living out of fellowship with the Lord. Sometimes we let those pains of broken promises trickle over into our personal relationship with God. In 2 Peter, the apostle desires to put an end to any fear we may have that God will not follow through. Throughout this letter to the church, we see Peter reminding the people about God’s promises and how they have come true. Many may say, “If God has promised to judge evil and save our world, then why are we still suffering? Why do we continue to turn on the news to find pain and death?” The answer…

God the Father is patient.

God will judge the world. He will make everything right, but His love is so amazing that He desires to save as many as He can before that time. Our heavenly Father is waiting in eternity for more people to respond to His grace. Have you responded? Could the creator of the entire universe be waiting for you to come to Him for forgiveness? Don’t put it off any longer, if you have not trusted in Jesus for salvation then today is the day. He died on the cross for your sins and rose from the grave so that you could have new life. Trust in Him today.

“God’s timing is not our timing.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I believe You died for me so that I could be forgiven. I believe You were raised from the dead so that I could have new life. I know I’ve done wrong things, and I’m sorry. Please forgive me and give me the power to follow You all the days of my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Invitation:

Put your faith and trust in Jesus! If you do not know him personally please read below.

Jesus Christ says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him” (Revelation 3:20)

The Bible promises eternal life to all who receive Christ: “God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life” (1 John 5:11-13)

If you have not asked Jesus into your life you can receive Jesus Christ right now by faith through prayer.

Prayer is just talking with God. He knows your heart, so don’t worry about getting your words just right. Here is a suggested prayer to guide you:

Lord Jesus, I want to know you personally. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive you as my Savior and Lord. Thank you for forgiving me of my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.

!If you have read this prayer and believed in your heart, then congratulations!

(Luke 15:7) says that when one sinner accepts Jesus Christ as his or her Savior the angels rejoice. So there’s a party going on in heaven right now over your decision! Remember this date as your “second birthday,” the day you were born into a new life in Christ! You have God’s Word that he answered your prayer.
