God’s Constant Call
Don’t wait until you hear an audible voice before you give your life to Christ because God is talking to you all the time even if you don’t seem to recognize His voice. One thing He remembers about you is that you are in need of His forgiveness and salvation. God’s desire is for everyone to come to Him and be reconciled, regardless of their past mistakes or current circumstances. He constantly reaches out to sinners, offering them the opportunity to experience His love, grace, and transformation.
Voice of Conscience
God speaks to us in unique ways, and some of the common ways are through the voice of our conscience, through the things that happen to us, and even through the people that are close to us. But the one method that I like is the voice of conscience. You know those moments when you would say, ‘I want to do this or do that, but it is as if something is telling me not to do it? What is that something instructing you to do things contrary to or in support of what you will? Well, it is the voice of God.
Some people may wonder if they are talking to themselves or being influenced by the devil. To determine whether it is truly your own voice or not, consider whether what you are being asked to do contradicts the teachings of the Bible. God would never ask you to do something that goes against His Word or encourages you to do something wrong.
John 16:13 says, “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth; for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak, and he will shew you things to come.” Even though this message is directed towards believers, the Spirit of God can reach out to sinners through their conscience and other means to urge them to repent. Moses’ experience with the burning bush is a prime example of how God can communicate with us in unconventional ways to capture our attention.
In Exodus 3:2, we read, “And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush; and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.” God speaks to each of us in unique ways, just as He did with Moses and the burning bush.
Gift of Salvation
Today, the Holy Spirit is present on earth, carrying out the Father’s work of calling sinners to repentance and guiding God’s children. After Jesus ascended to heaven, He sent the Spirit of God to dwell among believers, leading them and calling sinners to repentance. In Luke 24:49, we read, “And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised.” Other references to Jesus talking about sending the Holy Spirit can be found in (John 14:15–31, 16:7)
Although the carnal man does not have the mind of Christ, God still pricks their conscience, reminding them always about the need to shun sin and lead a life that is pleasing to Him. It is through the voice of conscience that God gently guides and convicts us, urging us to make choices that align with His will. This inner voice serves as a constant reminder of our spiritual journey and the importance of living a righteous life.
Here’s how you will know that God speaks to your conscience: In Proverbs 20:27, we read: “The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly.” This means that God communicates with us through our innermost being, our conscience. When we feel a deep sense of conviction or guidance within ourselves, it is a sign that God is speaking to us. It is important to listen to and follow the promptings of our conscience, as they can lead us toward righteousness and a closer relationship with God.
God is constantly telling us to come to Him; even though our sins are like scarlet that stains us (Isaiah 1:18), He offers forgiveness and redemption. Despite our flaws and imperfections, God’s love for us remains unwavering. He invites us to turn away from our sinful ways and embrace His grace, promising to cleanse us and make us white as snow. This divine invitation is a testament to God’s boundless mercy and desire for a restored relationship with His creation.
If you’re here today and you haven’t made peace with God, one question I’d like to leave you with is the one that Jesus Himself asked: “What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Mark 8:36) In another place, he said, our lives do not consist of the abundance of the things that we are looking for (Luke 12:15), in case some of us are looking for material possessions before turning our lives over to God.
Jesus’ question serves as a reminder that worldly achievements and possessions hold no eternal value compared to the salvation of our souls. Therefore, it is important to prioritize our relationship with God above all else, recognizing that true fulfillment comes from aligning our lives with His will rather than seeking temporary satisfaction in material things.
Furthermore, there are some who say, I will do this or that tomorrow, or I will give my life to Christ at a set time as if they already know what tomorrow will bring. Jesus said something to the effect that if only the owner of the house knew when the thief would come in to steal, he would guide his house and will not allow it to be broken into. (Luke 12:39-40) This reminds us that we cannot predict the future and should not delay our commitment to God. It is important to prioritize our relationship with Him now, rather than assuming we will have another opportunity in the future.
Similarly, we read, “Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil. Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” (James 4:13–16)
The passage in James reminds us of the uncertainty and fleeting nature of life. It advises us to acknowledge the will of the Lord in our plans and actions, rather than boasting about our own accomplishments. Failure to do good when we have the knowledge and ability to do so is considered a sin.
Dearly beloved of God, your salvation is nearer to you than you think. Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. It was through His death and resurrection that God gifted salvation to the world. Moreover, there is no name given under Heaven by which you can be saved except through Him.
Therefore, now is the time for you to come to Jesus and not set it aside any further because tomorrow is not guaranteed. Embracing the opportunity to do good and follow God’s will brings us closer to salvation and leads to a more fulfilling life. Let us not delay in seeking forgiveness and aligning our actions with the teachings of James, for every moment counts in our journey toward righteousness.
The Spirit Leading
Allow yourself to be guided by the Spirit of God.
Are you ready to give your life to Christ now? Just like the owner of the house must be ready because they don’t know when the thief comes, so you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at a time when you don’t expect him! (Luke 12:40) Remember, God only leads his sheep because they hear his voice.
In order to be led by the Holy Spirit, one must first experience a spiritual rebirth. That is to say, you must be born again. Romans 8:9–10 emphasizes the need for salvation: “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.”
If the Spirit of God is not within you, then you do not belong to Him. The presence of the Spirit of God in the life of a believer is what brings about this belonging and a transformation from a life controlled by the flesh to one guided by the Spirit. This transformation is marked by a renewed focus on righteousness and a rejection of sin, leading to a life that is filled with spiritual vitality and growth.
Your Salvation is Now
No one can save themselves by themselves, for “Neither by power, nor by strength, but by my spirit, says the Lord of heavenly forces.” (Zachariah 4:6) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God (Romans 8:14).
If you’re here today and you haven’t given your life to Christ, please surrender your life to Him and allow the Holy Spirit to guide you in your daily decisions and actions. This way, you can live a purposeful and fulfilling life in accordance with God’s will.
Please say this prayer of salvation to start a relationship with Jesus today!
Come into my life and fill it with your love, peace, and joy. Guide me on the path of righteousness and help me to live according to your will. Forgive me for my sins and wash away all my past mistakes. I surrender myself to you, Lord, and ask for your divine presence to be with me always. I trust in your unfailing love and believe that through Jesus Christ, I am reconciled to you. Thank you for the gift of salvation and for the assurance of eternal life. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
May you find comfort in your faith and may these words guide you through life’s journey.
