Prayer Guide and Devotional

Matthew 10:33

But whoever denies Me before people, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.

Many people think, because they were created by God that they will automatically spend eternity in heaven. They are forgetting about their sin stained soul. They think, God created me as I am and He will accept me as I am. Now think of it this way. If you have an absolutely perfectly clean kitchen floor, are you going to allow people to walk all over it with dirt, mud, grease, blood, animal droppings, and any other nasty thing on their shoes? Of course not! Same thing with God! God has a “perfectly clean from sin heaven” and we must be perfectly clean from sin to enter it. We become clean when we accept Jesus for what He did on the cross for us. These people that think they are fine as they are and can live life on their terms and will reject Jesus free gift of His death on the cross. Jesus tells us, when we stand before God, if we have denied Him while we were on earth, Jesus will deny us before the Lord. He will say He offered us the gift of His life and blood and we decided to do it our way. But, our way is not God’s way and it is not an acceptable punishment for our sins so there is no hope of heaven, but only an eternity in hell for us. Jesus has paid for our sins on the cross! As things are right now, will Jesus smile wide and open up His arms to you upon your arrival before the Lord, or will Jesus look to the Lord and say you rejected Him and His sacrifice on the cross? When you climb those stairs leading to God’s paradise, will the gates for you remain permanently closed? 

Lord, I acknowledge You and know I have offended You; my soul is stained with sin without Your blood covering me. Thank You Lord Jesus for Your death and resurrection and washing my sins away; making me acceptable to live in Your perfectly clean from sin heaven. I accept You into my heart and life today and know You will receive me in heaven when I stand before Our Father in heaven. May Your will be done here on earth by all people as it is in heaven. Thank You Lord, I accept You! In Jesus name, Amen!!
