People in Transition

Standard

Devotion: Acts 26:18

We’ve all seen them.  You probably know quite a few.  You might be one of “them”. Those who are in transition. Aren’t we all?  In transition?

You know people who’ve had much and lost everything.   Then, there are “those” people, who succumbed to temptation, that turns into addiction.  One bad choice, turns into a life long consequence, one must carry to his or her grave.

There are many ways we can transition:

From:

dating to married

childless to bearing a child

bad to good

closed to open

hard to soft

lost to found

dark to light

There is one way all people must transition; if they want to have eternal life in heaven.

from death to life

Wait a minute.  What did you say?  Death to life?  How is it possible to transition from death to life?  It is totally possible, for one who has prayed to invite Jesus into his or her life.  A person admits to being a sinner and in need of a Savior, and then asks Jesus to forgive them of their sins and to come into their heart.

Romans 3:23  “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory                            of God.”                                                                     
1 John 1:9       “If we confess our sins, He is faithful to forgive us                          of our sins and to cleanse us from all                                            unrighteousness.”                                                  
Ephesians 2:8 “For by grace are you have been saved through                            faith and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of                                God, not as a result of works, so that no one may                          boast.”

Romans 6:4     “We were buried with him by baptism into death,                             in order that, just as Christ was raised from the                             dead, by the glory of the Father, we too might                               walk in newness of life.”

It is not God’s will that any man should perish without Christ.  I am asking, no I’m begging you; if you do not know Jesus as your Savior and Lord, make this the day of your salvation.  He came to die for you and for me, so that we could have eternal life in heaven and abundant life on earth.

Prayer in Motion:

Lord, I pray You will show me those who are lost and need to be found.  May I share Your salvation message, this day with someone, who needs to transition from darkness to the Light of Jesus. It’s in His precious Name I offer up this prayer. Amen
