This week on Reaching Your World.

Series: Luis Palau | Assurance

As Luis nears the end of this life, he is absolutely sure that God will sustain him here, and then take him home to heaven to be with Him forever.  Do you have that kind of assurance?  This week on “Reaching your World with Luis Palau,” Luis urges each one of us to consider it carefully. 

God has no Grandchildren Wednesday, June 19, 2019

C. S. Lewis said, “No man is ready to live life on earth until he is ready for life in heaven.” He’s right, of course. Committing one’s life to Jesus Christ is the most important decision anyone can ever make. Compared to eternal life, all other decisions aren’t that important when you think about it.

Contrary to popular myth, growing up in a Christian home doesn’t automatically make someone a Christian. God has no grandchildren. Each of us must come to personal faith in Jesus Christ, as I discovered while growing up.
Like many others, I grew up attending Sunday school and church. I knew many Christian songs and Bible stories. But I didn’t know Jesus Christ. Oh, if someone asked me, I could stand up and say a prayer or quote a few Scripture verses. But if something went wrong, I cut loose with a string of dirty words. Deep down, I knew that I wasn’t right with God.

At summer camp, when I was 12, my counselor reviewed Romans 10:9-10 and I finally made my decision. I prayed: “Lord Jesus, I believe You were raised from the dead. I confess You with my lips. Give me eternal life. I want to be Yours. Save me from hell. Amen.”

Are you ready for life in heaven? If so, great! If not, stop what you’re doing. Ask Jesus to save you without delay.

Believing is Receiving Tuesday, June 18, 2019

I’m so glad that, no matter what their past has been like, anyone can receive forgiveness of sins and assurance of eternal life. Decision is the key. We can’t wash our hands like Pilate did after Jesus was betrayed. We can’t say, “Well, I’ll think about it later.”

What must we do? John 1:12 says, “To all who received Him (Jesus Christ), to those who believed on His name, He gave the right to become children of God.” To receive Jesus you and I must make a decision. And the decision is actually quite simple. It’s like a speaker saying, “As a memento of our meeting tonight, I want to give you my Bible. It’s a leather Bible, it has my name on it and it has good notes inside. If you want it, come and get it.” If you want that gift, what do you have to do? Stand up, walk forward, accept it, say thanks, and it’s yours.

“The wages of sin is death,” we read in Romans 6:23, “but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” That’s why it’s so important that by faith you say, “Thank you, Jesus. I receive You into my heart.” The moment you do that, your life changes forever. Don’t wait. Make your decision today.  It’s a free gift of God, but you must accept it.

Yes, God will Forgive You Monday, June 17, 2019

During an evangelistic meeting in a large metropolitan church, I noticed a young man sitting in a wheelchair. I later learned that he had leukemia. He looked thin, drawn, and pale–only in his early 30s, but physically on his way to eternity.

In his heart he had long ago turned against God, yet came that night with his Christian wife. To her surprise, this man listened intently to the message. It seemed evident that the Spirit of God was working in his heart. When I gave the invitation, he was the first one to come forward.

After the meeting this young man said to me, “You know, Palau, all my life I’ve been blasting God. When I contracted leukemia, I became even more blasphemous. But tonight I realized that despite my antagonism, God loves me. I want eternal life. Do you think God will forgive me despite the awful things I’ve said about Him?” I turned in my Bible to Hebrews 10:17 and gave him the promise from the Lord that, “Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more." 

No matter what your past has been like, anyone can receive forgiveness of sins and assurance of eternal life. Decision is the key. If you haven’t done so yet, make your decision today.
