And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” I John 5:12
Wow! What an invitation that is: it is saying that if you accept the invitation to allow Jesus Christ into your heart, you will receive ‘eternal life’ – a life that will measure with the life of God, once Jesus returns to claim you as His own. That is a breathtaking promise. However, on the end of telling you what you might have comes the results of refusing such an awesome invitation. If you refuse to accept Jesus, which equals life, it will result in death for you; I’m not just talking about the temporary sleep that many of us will experience at the age of 60, 70, or 80 and to which we can die with the hope of a resurrection. I’m talking about eternal death, to which there is no resurrection.
I’ve learned to accept any and all invitations extended to me by those who care about me; it is a time for bonding and fellowship; it is usually an awesome time for everyone, when I do. Nothing will change with Jesus. He truly knows how to throw a party and I’m looking forward to attending. What will you do? Won’t you come and go with me?
