AN INVITATION (AND A REJECTION FORM)



Dearest (your name),


You are cordially invited to come and enjoy the delicious banquet of my salvation. Serving will begin at My House and will continue for eternity. I’d love for you to come and get to know Me personally–and join my Family.


This feast is free to you because the cost has already been paid by My precious Son, Jesus. You are receiving this invitation simply because I love you. Please join me...and you may come just as you are.


Sincerely,

God Almighty

What are you going to write? What excuse do you think God will accept? Instead, why don’t you accept His invitation to receive Jesus as your personal Lord? That way when you go to heaven, you can sing, “Nothing in my hand I bring, only to Thy Cross I cling!”
