Jesus Christ compared God to a rich man who was determined to accomplish his goals without accommodating distractions. He narrated the story of the rich man and said, “Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. And the Lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper” (Luke 14:16-24 KJV).
There shall be no excuse adequate enough to persuade God to allow unrepentant sinners into heaven. God has opened his arms to all people through his Son Jesus Christ: Anyone who receives Jesus as his or her personal Lord will be accepted to heaven, and anyone who rejects his would be disallowed to enter heaven. Therefore, all people must realize that God’s word is law. He will perform whatever he has determined in his heart. Everyone ought to tremble before God and obey his commandments. We must all yield to God’s offer of salvation sent through Jesus Christ so that we can be saved and enter heaven.
Dear God, I am determined to yield to your invitation of salvation: Today, I (*please mention your name here*) give my life to Jesus Christ. I accept him as my personal Lord and Savior. I confess my sins and forsake them. From now on, I will serve you, and I will glorify you with every bit of my breath. Please help me to be a worthy Christian and remain qualified for your kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
