A Transformed Life
“Anyone who isn’t with me opposes me, and anyone who isn’t working with me is actually working against me” (Matthew 12:30 NLT).
A while back I received a letter from a young woman who attended one of our Harvest events. She wrote, “My life lately has been in the slumps. I was freaked out about school. I was having boyfriend trouble. I was stressed to the max, and to top it off, my family life hasn’t been the greatest. I started to cut myself to cope with all of this. It was just hurting me more. I tried to stop, but I was addicted.”
She went on to say, “I heard that Christ saves lives. So I decided to give it a chance, and after attending your service, I felt like my life has made a complete turnaround. I committed my life to Jesus, and I decided to stop hurting myself. At the time I thought God would never forgive me for what I had done to myself and all the sins I committed. . . . God opened my eyes, and I’m now living my new life as a Christian.”
Maybe you’ve lost hope in life. Christ is the answer. But you have a choice. Either you can ask Him to come into your life, or you can turn Him away. Jesus says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).
To not open the door and invite Him is a clear rejection, and Jesus said, “Anyone who isn’t with me opposes me” (Matthew 12:30).
So what will you say to Jesus? Will you ignore Him or tell Him to go away? Or, will you say, “Come into my life right now”? No matter how big your problems are, God is bigger still. He can transform you. But you must call out to Him.
