THE LAW OF COST
(PAY THE PRICE PART 3)
Matthew 19vs16, 17, 20, 21 and 22: and, behold, one came and said unto him, good master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? (17) And he said unto him…but if thou will enter into eternal life, keep the commandments. (20) The young man saith unto him, all these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? (21) Jesus said unto him, if thou will be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shall have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
THE PRICE FOR ETERNITY
Today series is a personal one, and it came with a lot of burden for the souls who have not pay the price to dwell in eternity with the Christ. You might have paid the price for the highest position that every mortals might desire, you might have even paid the price that is require for men to birth empires on earth, in short, you might have paid the price to be awarded a professor in your field of specialization, but have you paid the price for eternity with Christ? Even before a man can dwell in eternity there is cost that must be met; the cost of one accepting the cross and bearing with joy the persecution that might arise for the sake of the cross. The only difference in this price from every other price that we pay is that: Christ has paid the ultimate price for you, he was made the ransom for you, he paid the ultimate cost for your eternity; but you cannot come into this reality until you admit the sacrificial offering of the lamb of God by you accepting and believing Jesus in your heart and with your mouth confessing him as your lord and personal saviour, until this is done they will you be save.
IS YOUR NAME WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE?
HAVE YOU PAID THE PRICE FOR ETERNITY WITH JESUS?
HAVE YOU SIGN LIFE CONTRACT WITH MY LOVE (JESUS)?
Though your name might be written in every honourary books of men, by your mortal achievement you might have receive numerous honourary plaque from the highest platform ever known by men, but if your name is not found in the book of life all the height and glory that you have attain in this world all is vanity upon vanity.
Just like the young rich man in our today’s bible reading: if thou will be perfect and enter into eternal peace with Christ, just believe that Jesus is lord and accept him in your heart. Let us pray: for you who is saved thank God for the salvation of your soul and pray in the spirit.
