A Time of Decision
By Chris Nwoke
The time of decision is now upon us. As nations of the world are under siege by a deadly pathogen and people are under fear, let us remember there is God in heaven. In this moment of crisis, there is hope in Jesus Christ, if we repent of sin and pray and seek God for forgiveness. It is urgent that we turn from our wicked ways, that God may hear from heaven and forgive our sin and heal our land.
The unimaginable is now upon humanity. Life as we know it is under an existential threat of great magnitude. As reported in the media, a pathogen (Coronavirus aka Covid-19) is on the loose and without cure, many are succumbing to its vicious attack. Nations made light of this threat until its contagious impact could no longer be ignored. So now, nations are declaring war against the virus and are scrambling and struggling to contain the aftermath of this scourge. The fact is that hospitals are being over-run by the staggering number of sick people; care givers overwhelmed; and morgues overflowing with dead bodies; and no place but make-shift set ups to put additional victims. This ill-fated scenario is repeating itself from nation to nation all over the world. This is not the time to panic and lose hope, but the time to seek God for help.
Is your faith in Jesus Christ? If the answer is no, I urge you to have faith in Jesus today. It is a time of decision with none to waste. Tomorrow is not promised. While we have today, receive the love of God through Jesus Christ. Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for sin. He died to set us free from bondage, and give us the hope of eternal life. Come to Jesus and be saved today. Come and claim the gift of God, without which we will die both physically and spiritually. Come now. Jesus will help us and give us victory in this desperate time of need.
The Scripture (Romans 10: 8-13) says: “But what saith it? THE WORD IS NIGH THEE, EVEN IN THY MOUTH AND IN THY HEART: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH ON HIM SHALL NOT BE ASHAMED. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. FOR WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.” The time of decision is now. Do not put it off. Jesus is calling. How do you respond? Turn from sin and say yes today! May God bless you.
