The Invitation From Jesus To You
Jesus came to fulfill the law. He came to live a perfect life, and to die on the cross to save us from our sinful condition. We sin without even knowing about it. He invites everyone who hears his word to believe in him. But we are unable by our own power to do this. So he sends the Holy Spirit to give us that ability.
If you have read this far into "The Gate", and also have read much of the rest of this site, you can know that you are invited.
You have read some of this word. You have read my writing on his word, his life, his death, and his resurrection. You have now read and/or heard the message. It is through the message of salvation through Christ Jesus that faith comes to you. You may be feeling something in your heart tugging at you. You may even be feeling the tug in two different directions. You can be sure that one of those tugs is the Holy Spirit tapping on the door of your heart with the gift of faith. Recieve that gift, do not turn away from it. The invitation is for everyone.
The promise was not just for those Peter spoke to in Acts 2. It was for them, for their children, and for those who are far off. Not only those far away in distance, but also in time. Two thousand years is a long time, a far distance from the time of Jesus and the apostles. But the word of God is alive, even today. God does not change.
So now you have been called. You have received the invitation to come to the Lord. What is your response?
