There's Room at the Cross for You 53


 

Greetings in the precious name of Jesus,

What a wonderful and glorious day it is for us to come together to praise and worship Our Heavenly Father & Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

I would also ask that you pray for this ministry, that Our Lord will use it to encourage folks, help the lost to find Jesus as their personal Saviour, and to be a blessing to the child of God. Thank you for those prayers. My, Oh My, What a beautiful day it is outside to be serving Our Lord and Saviour, JesusÖ Iíve got a lot of scripture for you today and so weíre going to jump right into our message and if we have a little bit of time left Iíll sing you off the air. I wish to thank all of you, in my email little flock, who are listening today as well as all the nice folks who live close byÖ 

Iíd like to think a few minutes today about:
There's Room at the Cross for You...

Our text come from;

1 Corinthians 1: 17, 18
17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

 

We find that the preaching of salvation for lost sinners by the sufferings and death on the cross, by the Son of God, if explained and faithfully applied, appears foolishness to those on the way to destruction. The sensual, the covetous, the proud, the greedy, and the ambitious, alike see that the gospel opposes their favorite pursuits. But those who receive the gospel, and are enlightened by the Spirit of God, see more of God's wisdom and power in this doctrine of Christ crucified on that cruel cross, buried, and then raised from the dead; can not only receive but truly enjoy this great salvation. And the most wonderful part is that there is always room for one more at the foot of the cross of Jesus so they might become saved and a born again child of God. Well Glory!

We also find in the prayer of Christ found in;


John 17: 20, 26 Ė

20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

1. Jesus was praying for these who believed upon Him. And these folks were those present with him as He spoke. But more so He is praying for those who shall find the cross of salvation and embrace these findings and become saved and children of God.


21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

2. Our Lord especially prayed, that all believers might be as one body under one head, vibrant by one soul, by their union with Christ and the Father in him, through the Holy Spirit dwelling in them. The more folks dispute about lesser things, the more they throw doubts upon Christianity. Let us then, endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace, praying that all believers may be more and more united in one mind and one judgment. By doing this we shall convince the world of the truth and excellence of our religion, and find more sweet communion with God and his saints.

24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am ; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

3. Also Christ, as one with the Father, claimed on behalf of all that had been given to him, and should in due time believe on him, that they should be brought to heaven; and that there, the whole company of the redeemed might behold his glory as their beloved Friend and Brother, and therein find happiness. But we can only find this true happiness by coming to the foot of the cross, repenting of our sins, and accepting Christ as Our Lord and Saviour.

And regardless of the status in life there is room at the cross for you.

John 3: 1, 7
1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

And so you and I can plainly see that there is but one way to be saved and born again. And there is but one way to spend eternity in Heaven. And this is a fact, whether a person is totally illerate and not the brightest person in the world or as Nicodemus in this passage of scripture. A ruler and a teacher who was wise in the scriptures but ignorant of salvations plan and the path to Heaven. Nicodemus, in all his wisdom had not the Holy Spirit not the blood washing of Christ. And so Jesus shows the Scriptural scholar they way as we can see in verses 16, 17
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Well folks, my question for today is; Have you been to the foot of the cross and have you found Jesus? Have you called upon Him to save you from that demonís hell of fire and brimstone? Do you know that if you should die in your next breath, you would spend eternity in Heaven with Jesus? Well If you canít answer yes to these questions then I must tell you;
There is room at the cross for you today. If you know in your heart that you are lost, wonít you come and accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour? You will be glad that you did...

Thank you so much for coming and until we meet again,

May the angels watch over you this next week and may Our Heavenly Father fill your hearts in His love and give you the victory in Jesus.
