All Things Are Ready

This is a parable that Jesus taught about how salvation is likened to being invited to a wedding, all you have to do is come.

Matthew 22:-1-5: And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,

2: The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son.
3: And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
4: Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
5: But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise.

So we see that everyone is invited but only a few will come.  People are too busy making money, too busy with the cares and pleasures of this life, and material possessions and endless activities, to even think about their soul.  God wants to save them.  He has done everything he could to provide salvation to sinners, but yet so many, most of the people in this world, will not come, even though God longs to save them as it says in  2 Peter 3:9; The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness, but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Matthew 7:13: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.

14: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

The way is narrow and strait, because there is only one way to be saved and that is through trusting Jesus alone.  As it says in John 14:6:  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the father but by me.

John 3:15: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.  Whosoever means anybody can come.  Though everyone is invited, only a few come.

Everything needed for your salvation is already prepared and ready.  All you have to do is call on the name of the Lord and receive it.  Jesus has already paid for your sin in full by his death and resurrection.  Just come to Jesus as you are.  You don't need to clean up your life first.  A person cannot stop sinning no matter how hard they try  That is the whole reason why we need a saviour. You don't get yourself cleaned up before you take a shower and that is the way it is with getting saved too.  Revelation 1:5: And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth.  Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood.  Just come to Jesus, that's all you have to do. He will do the washing, not we ourselves.  Jesus had all our sins placed on him, so he is able to pardon our sin and take our sin away and throw it in the deepest sea.  Acts 10:43: To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.  Did you notice how it says whosoever believeth. The only thing necessary on our part is to simply believe on Jesus and we receive the remission of sins from him. Matthew 1:21: And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Are You Going To Heaven

Do you know how to go to heaven ? The bible tells the way
It's not through anything we could do, we are all sinners gone astray
We cannot change ourselves, our hearts are sinful and black 
The bible says we've all gone our own way and are totally off track 

There is no way we could ever be good enough, that we know for sure
So God in his great love and mercy provided the perfect cure
He gave the perfect sacrifice that could make our black heart white 
It is the precious blood of Jesus, who gave his life to make it right

Jesus shed his blood on Calvary to wash us from our sin 
He does all the changing of our heart when we invite him in
Just put your faith in Christ and trust in him alone 
His dying on the cross paid it all and did for all our sins atone

Jesus' shed blood will wash your heart and cleanse all sin away 
You'll receive the gift of eternal life and in Heaven you will be someday
Just come to Jesus as you are, it was for sinners his blood outpoured
Then you can rest assured you are forgiven and he will be your Lord

Your name will be written down in the Lamb's Book of Life and can never be crossed out 
You'll know you're on your way to Heaven and never again have to doubt

Romans 3:10 -12 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way..

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
