My name must be in there, please look again.
There must be some mistake, I beg You to look again.
You say my name’s not there. How can that be?
I was a good person, attended church regularly, gave 10% to the collection, and…You say that’s all good, but it doesn’t get my name into the Book of Life? May I ask what does? But I did; I knew all about Him and I quoted from the Bible almost all the time. You say It’s about Grace and not works? Since when?
My heart? What are You talking about? Lord and Savior; yes, I read about that. You’re saying I didn’t accept Him into my heart as Lord and Savior? Maybe not, but look at everything else that I did right. That has to count for something. I have family and friends who are praying for me right now; that should make up the difference, right? It won’t? But, why not?
You’re saying that no one else can do it for me, that You gave me a free will for me to make my own choices. Okay, I understand and to tell You the truth I was going to ask Him into my heart, but I just didn’t think there was any hurry. So, could You give me another chance? After all, You are a God of Love, right?
You don’t want me or anyone to perish, I know that, so we can work something out, can’t we? Please, there has got to be a way to make this right. I made a mistake. Please let me change my mind, Please. I don’t deserve this.
Lord, on my knees, I know that You are God Almighty and I recognize that…it can’t be too late…Lord please don’t say that…Please, I don’t want to spend Eternity separated from You…Please…………………………….
“Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:14-15).
On that day, there will be no more opportunity, no more chances. No one will be able to help you. God is a God of Love and He gives each one ample time to accept His Son. It is a free will choice and it is yours and no one else’s. Don’t wake up in Eternity and find yourself without hope. Your time is now, take it.
Pray from your heart, recognizing that you have sinned and that Jesus Christ died for you. Ask Him to come into your heart and life and take control. Pray in your own words, but pray from your heart, believing.
