(The Two Kingdoms)
There are two kingdoms and they are at war with one another; the kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of light. Unfortunately, we are born into the kingdom of darkness and Satan is the king. Satan is very crafty. He says, "You don't have to serve me, just serve yourself." But in the end, we receive darkness, death, and destruction. On the other hand, there's the kingdom of light and the King is Jesus. He came to earth and died on a cross, was buried, and rose from the dead to forgive us of our sins. If we will turn from our selfish ways, receive His forgiveness, and surrender our lives to Him as our King, He gives us light, life, and love. We live in this little bubble called life (70-80 years) and when it pops, whichever king we served is where we will spend all eternity.
Which king are you serving?
Is there anything that would keep you from surrendering your life to Jesus as your King and making Him the Boss of your life?
You can make a commitment to Him by praying and thanking Him for His forgiveness and asking Him to take control of your life. You can take the first step of surrender by obeying His command to be baptized.
Pray and surrender to God right now and then be baptized by another follower of Jesus.
“Jesus was going through all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom...
“For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;”
(1 Peter 3:18)
“to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.’”
“that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.”
