Summary: You must be saved to live with Him.
THIS COULD BE THE LAST CALL
Matthew 23: 37O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
Every man and woman that die lost some where along life’s way they receive the last call.
This could be your final call in this life.
(1) The will of the savior.
Luke 19: 10Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.
Its Gods will that none perish
2nd Peter 3: 9The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Its Gods will to fully pardon
John 5: 24Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
Its Gods will to furnish the faithful his promises.
Eph. 2: 8For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
(2) The warning of the Holy Spirit
John 16: 7Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
8And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
11Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
He pleads with you to turn from your sin
He points you to one who can save you
He performs the change when you trust Jesus Christ
(3) The warning of the scriptures
Hebrews 2: 1Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
2For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;
3How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
4God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?
Scriptures point out the need to be saved
Scriptures pin- point the way to be saved
The scriptures plan can not be changed are improved on.
(4)The witnessing of the saint
Acts 13: 30But God raised him from the dead:
31And he was seen many days of them which came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses unto the people.
Friends you have that are saved witness to you
The faith that is present reminds you
The fact you have and emptiness requires you to turn to Christ
(5) The weight of sin
Romans 3: 23For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 6: 23For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The curse of sin is death
