It’s time to pray. When what we see and hear make no sense.
When sin seems to have the upper hand,
It is time I pray.
When we see the sickness of sin like a plague blinding makind,
It is time to pray.
When our children are in danger and our livelihoods at risk,
It is time to pray.
When evil is called good and the righteous are condemned,
It is tim to pray.
There is but one Mediator between God and man… 1 Timothy 2:5
For God so loved humanity that he gave His Only begotten son that who that believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life
There is only on name above any other name…
There is only one way we can have access to heaven… John 14:6
The Only Son of God sent to save humanity is Jesus.
The only Mediator between God and man is Jesus.
The Name above every other name is the Name of Jesus.
The only Way, The Bridge, The Path, The Highway to Heaven, is Jesus.
The Word of God says, in John 8:28 – 47
“So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of man, then you will know that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own authority but speak thus as the Father taught me. And he who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what is pleasing to him.” As he spoke thus, many believed in him. Jesus then said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” They answered him, “We are descendants of Abraham, and have never been in bondage to any one. How is it that you say, ‘You will be made free’?” Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, every one who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not continue in the house for ever; the son continues for ever. So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. I know that you are descendants of Abraham; yet you seek to kill me, because my word finds no place in you. I speak of what I have seen with my Father, and you do what you have heard from your father.” They answered him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would do what Abraham did, but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth which I heard from God; this is not what Abraham did. You do what your father did.” They said to him, “We were not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.” Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I proceeded and came forth from God; I came not of my own accord, but he sent me. Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. But, because I tell the truth, you do not believe me. Which of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me? He who is of God hears the words of God; the reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.”
Oh come let us reason together…
“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord : though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
Outside of Jesus Christ here is no other Saviour who has gone to the Cross to Redeem mankind. Humanity will continue to fail. We are corrupt and broken confused and often lead by foolish passions. Our desire for greed and power and authority leads us to self destruction. We need a Mediator. We need an Advocate. We need the One who has Gave his all for us.
We need Him for our state ofcnfusion. Our wayward hearts have led us to this point of despair. Humanity needs a Hero. One who was willing to take on himself the sins of th world.
Jesus is that Saviour.
His blood shed on the cross is able to wash away our sin. His Resurrection power is able to give us newness of life.
Let us run for cover!
Let us plead for mercy…
Let us cry out to the Lord!
“From the ends of the earth, I cry to you for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety,”
Psalms 61:2 NLT
Jesus is the answer for every question of the day.
He is the Hope for the Sinner ad he Joy for th Saved.
He can turn your Weeping into Dancing and your Sorrow for His Joy.
He can give you Beauty for Ashes.
He is the Giver of Life and in Him you can begin Again.
His desire I that none should be lost but come to Salvation.
Come find the Way. Come to the Light and out of the Darkness.
It is time to pray to the Only One Who is Able to Save.
