Biblegateway Verse of the Day

The Rest of the Story

On October 9 of this year, i was in a great amount of pain. I also had a very high fever, which was spiking badly. I had no idea God was showing me how close I actually was to going to Hell. Rather than putting off the inevitable, i cried out in pain and also in great distress. I'll admit to being angry. I think I said something to the effect of, "Lord, why now? Why does this have to hurt so bad? You have my attention, honestly. I'm sorry for sinning against You and my wife so much, but I need You in my life. I thank You for the gift of mercy and grace You desire to give me. I'm not worth it. But I do receive Your love and gift of grace. Thank You Jesus for coming to me in my hour of need, and for being my Lord and Savior. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen."

It was that easy. It can be that easy for you as well. It's a rather simple prayer, to be open with you. We're told in His word, "if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:14, New King James). I made that choice on Tuesday, October 9, and you can to; it is a life and death situation, you may not realize it yet.
